The Roots feat. John Legend – The Fire

the-roots-the-fire

It looks like The Roots are leaking back-to-back  John Legend records from the album, possibly to give people a preview of what’s to come from both parties. This one was performed at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics back in March. Rik Cordero will be directing the video.

    Chorus:
    There’s something in your heart,
    … in your eyes
    It’s the fire, inside you
    Let it burn

    You don’t say good luck
    You say don’t give up
    It’s the fire, inside you
    Let it burn

    Yeah, and if I’m ever at the crossroads
    And start feeling mixed signals like morse code
    My soul start to grow colder than the North Pole
    I try to focus on the hole on where the torch goes
    In the tradition of these legendary sports pros
    As far as I can see I made it to the threshold
    Lord knows I waited for this a lifetime
    And I’m an icon when I let my light shine
    Shine bright as an example of a champion
    Takin the advantage never coppin out or cancelin
    Burn like a chariot, learn how to carry it
    Maverick, always above and beyond average
    Fuel to the flame that I train with and travel with
    Something in my eyes say I’m so close
    To having a prize
    I realize I’m supposed to reach for the sky
    Never let somebody try to tell you otherwise

    Chorus:
    There’s something in your heart,
    … in your eyes
    It’s the fire, inside you
    Let it burn

    You don’t say good luck
    You say don’t give up
    It’s the fire, inside you
    Let it burn

    One love, one game, one desire
    One flame, one rhyme, one fire
    Let it burn higher
    I never showed signs of fatigue
    Or turned tired
    Because I’m the definition of tragedy turned triumph
    It’s David and Goliath
    I made it to the eye of the storm
    Feeling more like they fed me to lions
    Before time start to wind down like the Mayans
    I show ’em how I got the grind down like a science
    It sounds like a riot on hush
    It’s so quiet, the only thing I hear is my heart
    I’m inspired by the challenge that I find myself standin eye-to-eye with
    To move like a wise warrior and not a coward
    You can’t escape
    The history you was meant to make
    That’s why the highest victory is what I’m meant to take
    You came to celebrate
    I came to …
    I hate losing I refuse to make the same mistakes

    The fire, the fire…

    Chorus

    You say don’t give up
    It’s the fire, inside you
    Let it burn

    The fire, inside you (x3)
