Music That Speaks to Me

Sometimes a song, is more than a song. 

Lyrics

When I was a child, I heard voices
Some would sing and some would scream
You soon find you have few choices
I learned the voices died with me
When I was a child, I’d sit for hours
Staring into open flame
Something in it had a power
Could barely tear my eyes away
All you have is your fire
And the place you need to reach
Don’t you ever tame your demons
But always keep ’em on a leash
When I was 16, my senses fooled me
Thought gasoline was on my clothes
I knew that something would always rule me
I knew the scent was mine alone
All you have is your fire
And the place you need to reach
Don’t you ever tame your demons
But always keep ’em on a leash
When I was a man I thought it ended
When I knew love’s perfect ache
But my peace has always depended
On all the ashes in my wake
All you have is your fire
And the place you need to reach
Don’t you ever tame your demons
But always keep ’em on a leash

As always, a nod to Drew at Sarcastic Book Geek for the #MusicMonday idea.
