about

I took part in the FAWM songwriting challenge in February. I wrote 50 songs in 28 days. This is one of them.
This is a rough home demo that was put together during the past few days. The guitars and vocals are the original guide tracks I laid down, so I'll need to redo those at some point...

lyrics

1.
Brutal and tender
Only one is remembered
Under the surface
Of plastic and embers
That burn so bold
They endlessly crumble in my hands
The ashes are sticky and cold

Chorus.
Shock and surprise
It's a long, lonely winter
The echo of your lies
Will always linger

2.
Pride and shame
You're playing the game
The gaslight is stoked
And it's calling my name
Speaking in tongues
That tirelessly twist in its mouth
The words are both old and young

Chorus.
Shock and surprise
It's a long, lonely winter
The echo of your lies
Will always linger

Bridge.
If you told the truth it would kill you
If you told the truth it would kill you
If you told the truth it would kill you

Chorus.
Shock and surprise
It's a long, lonely winter
The echo of your lies
Will always linger
