Ancient Embers
Danni Nicholls

I see the ancient embers glow
That fire in your soul
You are wise beyond your years
Your words smoulder in my ears

May the greatest love be you

Beaming over oceans wide
You make my head and heart divide
Perfect sense no sense at all
I get a hit like from alcohol
For the greatest love is you

Yes the greatest love is you

Come lay down upon this sacred earth
Take a lung full of your precious worth
Prise the diamond from her hardened shell
Let light shine in corners where darkness dwells
Let the greatest love be you

When you arrive you come all alone
You’re flying solo when you go
So let the greatest love be you

Oh the greatest love is you
