lyrics

Words on Fire by Jessica Graae © 2017


I wrote you a letter,
That you’ll never see.
I waited ‘til it was too late.

I became all the things
that you asked me to be.
Did everything you said.

Now all is left,
Is a hole in my soul,
And the poetry you’ll never get.

My words are on fire,
They burn it all down.
Higher and higher,
Flames all around.

You don’t know the difference,
Between love and submission,
Beauty you’ve captured in vain.

To have and behold it-
And then to control it.
It’s pleasure wrapped up in pain.

My words are on fire,
They burn it all down.
Higher and higher,
Flames all around.

I buried that letter,
Deep in the ground,
The words that I never said.

They smolder like embers,
They’re scorching my brain,
Raging inside of my head.

My words are on fire,
They burn it all down.
Higher and higher,
Flames all around.

Now all is left,
Is a hole in my soul,
And the poetry you’ll never get.
