Into The Fire Lyrics

Broadway 1997
Scarlet Pimpernel the Musical - Into The Fire Lyrics

PERCY:
David walked into the valley
with a stone clutched in his hand.
He was only a boy, but he knew
someone must take a stand.

There will always be a valley,
always mountains one must scale -
there will always be perilous waters
which someone must sail!

Into valleys, into waters,
into jungles, into hell!
Let us ride, let us ride home again
with a story to tell!

Into darkness, into danger,
into storms that rip the night!
Don't give in, don't give up,
but give thanks for the glorious fight!

You can tremble, you can fear it,
but keep your fighting spirit
alive, boys!
Let the shiver of it sting you!
Fling into battle!
Spring to your feet, boys!
Never hold back your step for a moment!
Never doubt that your courage will grow!
Hold your head even higher
and into the fire we go!

Are there mountains that surround us?
Are there walls that block the way?
Knock them down, strip them back, boys,
and forward, and into the fray!

LEAGUE:
Into terror, into valor,
charge ahead - no, never turn!
Yes, it's into the fire we fly
and the devil will burn!

Someone has to face the valley!
Rush in! We have to rally
and win, boys!
When the world is saying not to,
by God, you know you've got to
march on, boys!

PERCY:
Never hold back your step for a moment!
Never doubt that your courage will grow!

LEAGUE:
Hold you head even higher
and into the fire we go!

PERCY:
Let the lightning strike!
Let the flash of it shock you!
Choke your fears away,
pull as tight as a wire.
Let the fever spike!
Let the force of it rock you!
We will have our day,
sailing into the fire!

PERCY, spoken::
Land, ho!

LEAGUE:
Someone has to face the valley!
Rush in! We have to rally
and win, boys!
When the world is saying not to
by God, you know you've got to
march on, boys!

PERCY:
Never hold back your step for a moment!
Look alive! Oh, your courage will grow!

LEAGUE:
Yes, it's higher and higher
and into the fire we go!

PERCY:
Into fire!

PERCY & LEAGUE:
Onward ho!
