(This is one of my more recent songs, where I've been branching out with different musical styles and such, but I definitely like where it's going. The verses are a little vague maybe?? I'm more used to writing very concrete storyline songs so I guess I'm just out of my comfort zone??)

Verse 1

Here

Here I am

Sipping coffee

And forgetting

Who I am

 

No one

knows my name

I’m not merely indecisive

I am ever changing

Ever changing

 

Chorus

Stop

Telling lies

I am fine

I am rising from the dark

Call my name

Break my heart

I am fine, yes

I am rising from the dark

Rising from the dark

I am

Rising from the dark

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

I am

I am

 

Verse 2

Heat

Heat of fear

Huddle close

Try to remember

Keep it clear

 

Hotter

Hotter still

I’m not holding on to smoke now

I’ve become the fire

I’m the fire

 

Bridge

Can you guess what I need

What I bleed

What I fleed

I am strong, I am powerful

And you, you are wrong

Can you remember my heart

Can you remember my heat

Can you remember my name

It doesn’t matter

It doesn’t matter

No no no!

 

Outro

I am rising from the dark

Rising from the dark

I am rising, rising

Stop

Telling lies

(Rising from the dark)

I am fine

I am

(Rising from the dark)

Call my name

Break my heart

I am fine, yes

(Rising from the dark)

I am fine,

I am

(Rising)

Rising from the dark

(Like a phoenix)

Rising from the dark

I am fine

(Oh oh oh oh oh oh)

I am

(Oh oh oh oh oh oh)

I am

Rising from the dark
