Biography

The Great Fire of London have a very original sound, making us hard to categorize into a genre. With rock, funk, jazz and classical influences our songs are composed with high attention to detail. With all members classically trained and with four of the five have either completed or are midway through tertiary music degrees, we combine excellent instrumental and compositional skills.

Raise a child in a song
Make her spirit lift until the music's gone
Don't you love how she begs you to smile
Don't you love how she's keeping you high
As a kite

Baby don't you want to let her go
And see how much she grows
Living like the wind now
Baby run forever through the sky
'Cause we'll never let you die
No we won't now child

Taking care to nurture well
Keep her safe from harm in this big bad world
Don't you love the way she's singing you to sleep
Don't you love the way she holds you when you dream

Baby don't you want to let her go
And see how much she grows
Living like the wind now
Baby run forever through the sky
'Cause we'll never let you die
No we won't now child

Baby sleep well tonight

Age

Written By: The Great Fire of London

Through the wind softly whispers
Leaves to gold
Grass to brown
My heart feels winter as I age
Too soon to give up what I've found

Live like the wind
Limitless in your travel
Sleep with the earth
Quiet and calm and cold
Try not to cry
Rivers of tears will not
Wash you away
Settle child you're not old

Mother I am so alone
Though you're still here
Winds of noth carry woe
Through the trees age softly whispers

Through the trees age calling
Through the trees age calling
Through the trees age calling to me
Through the trees age calling

Written By: The Great Fire of London

It tempts me
More than anything
I have known
Its beauty leaves me cold
It calls me
To take it home
To take it home

Hold me its cold out here in the sun
Dying
Trust me
I'd like to take it back
And do it again
I'd follow you anywhere
Anywhere
Brother, King

It scares me
Let me see it one more time
Feed me with visions of the past delusions
I want to be great
I want to be

Hold me its cold out here in the sun
Dying
Trust me
I'd like to take it back
And do it again
I'd follow you anywhere
Anywhere
Brother, King

Leave me be
Alone
Get out of my head
Your madness is engulfing me
Leave me love me
Leave me love me

Hold me its cold out here in the sun
Dying
Trust me
I'd like to take it back
And do it again
I'd follow you anywhere
Anywhere
Brother, King
