Working on the melody for this...It will be somewhat up-tempo with a bit of a bluesy feel I think but yet with still a country tune feel to it...if that makes any sense..LOL...Just trying to get it down with no mistakes then maybe I will post it in open mic sometime if it comes out ok....and I still may make some changes and or additions to it.

"BURN"

© 2009 / John Hackett

 

VERSE:

Have you ever been in that deep dark place

Where the shadows are moving in

Hopeless fear burning in your soul

Your life consumed with sin.

 

VERSE:

Have you ever felt like the cold hand of death

Was knocking at your door

And there's no way in hell you're ever gunna' win

Your sanity un-accounted for.

 

CHORUS:

You're burn burn burning

Burning up inside

You're burn burn burning

Burned up with the destruction and the lies.

 

VERSE:

Does it seem like a hurricane is running your life

Spinning you out of control

Is it pounding in your brain, keeping you confused

Stealing away your troubled soul

 

CHORUS:

You're burn burn burning

Burning up inside

You're burn burn burning

Burned up with the destruction and the lies.

 

(musical interlude)

 

VERSE:

But there's a fire and its flame won't hurt you

It will calm the winds of your storm

It can turn to light all your darkness

The truth will bring the SON of a new morn'

 

CHORUS:

And you'll burn burn burn

Burn with a spirit from above

You'll burn burn burn

Consumed by the fire of God's love

 

You'll Burn burn burn

Set ablaze by the fire of His love

Dagnabit!! I put this in the music data base instead of the lyrics lounge by mistake....Sorry.....would appreciate it if a mod could move it for me.:?
