"On Fire" is the ninth track on Switchfoot's fourth album, The Beautiful Letdown.


They tell you where you need to go
They tell you when you need to leave
They tell you what you need to know
They tell you who you need to be

But everything inside you knows there’s more than what you’ve heard
There’s so much more than empty conversations filled with empty words

And you’re on fire when he’s near you
You’re on fire when he speaks
You’re on fire burning at these mysteries

Give me one more time around
Give me one more chance to see
Give me everything you are
Give me one more chance to be near you

When everything inside me looks like everything I hate
You are the hope I have for change
You are the only chance I’ll take

I’m standing on the edge of me (4x)
I’m standing on the edge of everything I’ve never been before
I’ve been standing on the edge of me
Been standing on the edge of me
Standing on the edge

And I'm on fire when you're near me
I'm on fire when you speak
Yeah I'm on fire burning out these mysteries
These mysteries These mysteries
Yeah your mysteries yeah your mystery
