The Fire

about

2nd week of Soulwriters songwriting group and the prompt was "The Fire and The Fury". I woke up on Monday and checked my email for the prompt first thing in the morning. I was still in bed when I read it and I rolled my eyes and turned the phone over because that's what I do every single time. Ugh. What am I gonna do with this?!? But, I had a few chord progressions lying around that I thought would be nice to put together and The Fire is what I had by the end of the day. Hope you like it.

lyrics

Crumpled up pages of words you were burning to say
The truth never heard ‘cause you couldn’t get past the mistakes
Oh, you might be good enough but you’re always giving up
It’s hard when mean what you say. You’re afraid you’ll regret it

But, if it isn’t what you want
It won’t make you a liar
Just to tear it all up and throw it all back on the fire

Pen to the page as you’re struggling over each word
Sometimes you’re crying so hard all the letters get blurred
But, if no one comes around, they never hear the sound
And then you don’t have to explain how it hurt when you said it

When it isn’t what you want
It won’t make you a liar
Just to tear it all up and throw it all back on the fire
and the fury, the spark and the flame
the smoldering ashes to blame

But, oh, don’t you worry
You can drown it with tears
Remember the smoke always clears
Putting the words on a page only hurts if you let it

So, if it isn’t what you want
It won’t make you a liar
Just to tear it all up and throw it all back on the fire

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
