On the hills of fire, the darkest hour
I was dreaming of my true love's pyre
Who will bring a light to stoke the fire?
Fear not for you're still breathing

    Ben's Song, Mercy, and Vox have got to be 3 of her best songs ever.

    melancholically beautifull in a way only Sarah's voice can artistically demonstrate!

    This was one of my favorite songs that introduced me to Sarah's music--talk about such a complete song, vocals, key changes. the beauty of this song is that as profound as it is, it's beauty lies in it's simplicity. Tragically sad yet reassuring song!

    Beautiful. It made me cry repeatedly. It's about this boy she used to babysit who died of cancer.
