He didn't start the "Fire".

He didn’t start the “Fire”.

Burning onto the scene this week is the latest from singer-songwriter Phillip Phillips. “Raging Fire” is the first single from Phillips’s forthcoming second studio album, title TBA, which is due later this spring. It was written by Phillips himself and produced by Gregg Wattenberg, who also produced the major of the singer’s debut effort, The World From The Side Of The Moon. It goes to both digital services and radio today, and officially goes for AAA radio adds on the 17th. Look for the former American Idol winner to return to the show that crowned him back in 2012 with a live performance of the song on Thursday night.

“RAGING FIRE” (3:45)

[Verse 1]
We are dead to rights, morning rays
We are thick and thin ’til our last days
So hold me close and I’ll surrender to your heart
You know how to give and how to take
You see every hope I locked away
So pull me close and surrender to my heart

[Bridge]
If the flame goes out tonight
Yeah, we’ll live until we die

[Chorus]
So c’mon c’mon c’mon
Won’t you turn my soul into a raging fire?
C’mon c’mon c’mon
‘Til we lose control into a raging fire
Into a raging fire
C’mon c’mon c’mon
Won’t you turn my soul into a raging fire?

[Verse 2]
You know time will give and time will take
All the memories made will wash away
Even though we’ve changed, I’m still here with you
If you listen close, you’ll hear the sound
Of all the ghosts that bring us down
Hold on to what makes you feel
Don’t let go, it’s what makes you real

[Bridge]
If the flame goes out tonight
Yeah, we’ll live until we die

[Chorus]
So c’mon c’mon c’mon
Won’t you turn my soul into a raging fire?
C’mon c’mon c’mon
‘Til we lose control into a raging fire
Into a raging fire
C’mon c’mon c’mon
Won’t you turn my soul into a raging fire?

[Middle 8]
Let the world leave us behind, let your heart be next to mine
‘fore the flame goes out tonight, we can live until we die

C’mon c’mon c’mon
Won’t you turn my soul into a raging fire?

[Chorus]
So c’mon c’mon c’mon
Won’t you turn my soul into a raging fire?
C’mon c’mon c’mon
‘Til we lose control into a raging fire
Into a raging fire
C’mon c’mon c’mon
Won’t you turn my soul into a raging fire?
