Burning Black by Bluebird Avenue published on 2012/10/24 09:58:31 +0000 From "Open Skies Above" EP. Music, lyrics, and performance by Danny Crocome & Sam Ogilvie. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Nick Taylor @ Sosol Sound, Okura, NZ. BURNING BLACK Up against a hotel lobby wall, red-rimmed eyes, last week's denim, and your name just a sound come off my tongue. You didn't recognise me, just a stranger among strangers, voices clanging off the polished walls like guns. You've been fueling that fire for a while now and it's only burning black. GUITAR SOLO 1 Tread heavy on the sidewalk, step on all the cracks. One, two, buckle your shoe - you won't be coming back. Raise your glass, a drink to health and wealth and whatever else. You can be everything to everyone and nothing to yourself. You've been fueling that fire for a while now and it's only burning black. GUITAR SOLO 2 Open skies above all our bonfire nights of youth, glowing embers, dancing shadows with nothing yet to lose. What choices have been made in times when darkness came to call that left you up against a hotel lobby wall? You've been fueling that fire for a while now and it's only burning black.
