It was during a cold winter night when the sky was the clearest that I had the draft of this song in my mind. I can't help but think about the purpose of life, its meaning, and most of all, the drive to live. "This life, we chose, to rise, like fire, to guide our way, through the dark." This is my current conclusion to what living is all about. - Kaila


I came to lay me down/In silence I shall sleep to dream of you and me and the freedom that we breathe/Through our wandering days and all the nights awake to the sounds of stars that slowly drift away/This life we chose to rise like fire to guide our way through the dark/We're travellers in time/We're writers of our dreams/There's so much more to life if only we believe/We're gatherers of flames/We're riders in the wind/There's so much more to life/As long as we believe/So come and put me up to the test of life/Race against the time/It’s an upward climb/So just hold on tight and swing with all your might/Now’s the time to shine and leave the past behind/We're travellers in time/Agile in our stride/There's so much more to life/So don't give up the fight/We're carriers of light/We're riders in the wind/One day we'll be free/So just trust in me
