Facing backwards on his horse
He journeyed from Jerusalem to Florence
Sheltering a flame
Warding off the wind and snow and rain
And guided by a force
He struggled on through blizzards and through torrents
But how were folks to know
Whether he was wise or just a fool?

Raniero di Raniero
A tale that inspires and intrigues
Well, what was he about?
Carrying a flame so many leagues

A band of rogues approached
Stole away his armour and his stallion
Then left him in a cloak with but a bony mare to ride upon
Things got worse and worse
As people spat and cursed him in Italian
But something in him burned
Something really must have spurred him on

Raniero di Raniero
A tale that inspires and intrigues
Well, what was he about?
Carrying a flame so many leagues

Raniero di Raniero
Maybe there's a flame inside us all
Waiting for a sign
Waiting for a question or a call
