lyrics

Last night was my last night with Sara Jane
She said “Boy, you never age, you always look the same”
I saw the fire into her eyes
And probably should have realized
Last night would be my last night with Sara Jane

Last night I woke up from a fever dream
I was a match and she was gasoline
Trapped inside a raging fire
No escape as the blaze grew higher
Last night I woke up from a fever dream

I knew any given night might be her last
She always burned too bright and lived too fast
Still I fought my way through the flame
That erupted at the mention of her name
Sara Jane

Today I got the call I always feared
And felt a burning anger in my tears
A dream deferred, a dream denied
A fire forever trapped inside
Today I got the call I always feared

Tomorrow I will drive around for hours
Try to find a field of her favorite flowers
I’ll lay them on her resting place
And pray she’s in a better place
Tomorrow I will drive around for hours

I knew any given night might be her last
She always burned too bright and lived too fast
Still I fought my way through the flame
That erupted at the mention of her name
Sara Jane

Tonight, she came back in different dream
I’d never seen her looking so serene
She said “Follow me into the fire”
But I finally did deny her
The time has come to chase a different dream

I knew any given night might be her last
She always burned too bright and lived too fast
Still I fought my way through the flame
That erupted at the mention of her name
Sara Jane
