I can feel the air bursting from my lungs… Song 103

When you’ve written hundreds of songs, there’s always the danger of plagiarizing yourself. I almost did that this morning. That would be bad if I didn’t figure it out before I actually started recording. So, crisis averted, I wrote a song about a guy getting the chair…

Song 103: “Still Burning”

I see the fire in my eyes slowly fade away
I feel the lightning in my soul flicker out

Don’t wish me away, I’m still burning

I can feel the air bursting from my lungs
I can smell the fear slowly creeping down

Don’t wish me away, I’m still burning

Bind my hands, tie my feet
Break my arms, smother me
Bide my time, take my chance
Break my heart, kill romance

Don’t wish me away, I’m still burning

I’m still burning
