Burning Bridge


(INSTRUMENTAL INTRO)

Awoken from a dream
To a silent room
Where the shadows evoke memories
Sharing the nightmare with you
Caring is no longer enough
For once, I’d love to be true to me
Embracing jealousy in the frozen winds of summer

(Guitar SOLO)

Restless temptations
Feeling naked in the arms of frustrations
The brave hides from the day

(Guitar SOLO)

Warm Decembers

(+TEMPO)

Standing bridge is falling
Running with a burning tail
Cold feelings, with nothing to share
Smoking clouds travelling ahead
Sparing the burning bridge behind

(Drum FILL)

Strike the head
Light the stick
Burn the finger
Torch the wick
Fight the darkness
Torch the wick
Burn the finger
Light the stick
Strike the head

(-TEMPO)
(Drum FILL)
(Keyboard BRIDGE)
(-TEMPO)

Pour a drink to drown into
Longing for tomorrow
But, tomorrow’s far away
Leaning for yesterday
But, yesterday was a dark day

The night will fade to darkness
The sun will come to light
Surviving through the burning flames
Cross the burning bridge

(INSTRUMENTAL FADE OUT)

(WHISPER)
Restless temptations
Feeling naked in the arms of frustrations
The brave hides from the day

Great visual effect. Feelings are clear in the first few sentences and the honesty continues. But the words in this particular song are not raw emotion and confusion as in past recent posts. This is stronger and more direct. Frustration is so much better than confusion. Through frustration we learn what we can deal with and how much we can take and what we have to accept in this life. Your words "yesterday was a dark day" shows that today is not so dark. Today there is healing.

I believe that failure and frustration actually helps us build foundation'sand rebuild new bridges to help us understand life , love, loss,their is no going back,although temptations are their. each day we fight them and become frustrated, naked as the brave hides from the day. Love those words.

Greatly written AJEY .. I think Pink Floyd did a song called buring bridges. He would love this one. xo

This was amazing...what power it had which could be easily heard!
That temptation was felt here!

Loved the visual effect!

I really like the imagery you've created here AJ. Some of these verses are truly poetic and burn into the reader's mind. Certainly one of your stronger works. Nicely written here!!

A broken bridge, a bridge that has been burned a relationship which is empty yet still the memories burn and reaching out to touch them burns as well... yesterday is fading, fading gone... the only thing that is left is a memory...

That's my interpretation anyway. :)

@TechnoBabe - True. Frustrations are better than confusions. This is a concept album which means, every song in this album is connected to each other. Be ready for the roller-coaster ride!!! I have something smashing coming up!!! Thanks!!!
