Lay Down Your Guard

Do not be afraid of the flames
They are the best thing I have ever known
Do not try to apply your logic
For it holds no currency here
You're welcome to try and hide your joy
But there is no point in fighting this
It will take you - if it wants to

So do not be afraid of the flames
Take the chance we all must take
Please risk the 'getting burnt'
For there is no better way
There is no better purpose in this life
Lay yourself down, open your arms
Hold out your heart, to give

Do not be afraid of the flames
There is nothing to fear
The love cannot flow - unless you let go
Take a chance
The chance you take
I promise you I'll honour
Do not be afraid of the flames
I will not let you burn, I swear...

I also think this is good. The last verse says it all, clearly and honestly. Who could resist?

I found a little insecurity in the pronouns - as in what exactly was/were the referents in the first verse.

I really like tis, all about passion, yet you sound such a gentleman in that last line!
