YOUR FIRE YOUR SOUL
Dar Williams


Button up that shirt you're supposed to wear.

Don't forget your airline ticket or to brush your hair,

Show that family that you care.

But could you wear something that celebrates

Everything you love, and maybe what your family hates.

'Cause that might be what it takes.


It's your fire, it's your soul, you shouldn't have to go.

It's your fire, it's your soul, you shouldn't have to go.


First thing they'll say's take off your shoes,

And they'll say they want your story, but they get confused,

By all those words you use.

A year ago your car went off a cliff,

And you saw an angel in midair who said you'd live.

Well, that's a story you can give.


It's your fire, it's your soul, you shouldn't have to go.

Your fire, your soul, you shouldn't have to go.


And they'll say, "You're family, you belong to us.

You can stay at home and have our love and trust,

But any day now one of us could die,

and if we make you suffer don't you want to find out why,

'Cause we love to watch you try,

With your fire, your soul, your soul.

It's your fire, it's your fire, it's your fire.


Then you'll fly home and get the flu,

And you'll keep staring at the ground, you always do,

When they get their time with you.

You are not a punching bag, my dear,

I think your darkest day should have some light this year,

I think you should stay right here.


It's your fire, it's your soul, you shouldn't have to go.

It's your fire, it's your soul, you shouldn't have to go.


DAR WILLIAMS

Her studio album My Better Self finds Dar at an unequivocally brazen crossroads. Reflecting on American politics, the disillusionment and apathy of youth, and the female experience, Dar makes no apology for her outspoken beliefs.
