Fire Inside

by Nick Smith in

I've been writing tons of lyrics in the last couple months.  Some of it is really good.  I need to go through my notebooks and see what's worth turning into songs.  Here's something I just wrote now, with a Springsteen-on-I'm-On-Fire kind of feel to it, probably because of the first line.  But it really branches off from there.  It's called "Fire Inside." Fire inside Fire inside Can't you see the smoke comin' outta my eyes Burn so bright with a blinding light Can't you see I got a fire inside

Burn to the ground Burn to the ground I'll never get up if I don't go down Leaving town don't know where I'm bound Can't you see I'm gonna burn to the ground

Leavin' today Leavin' today Can't you see that I need to get away I can't stay 'til I'm old and gray Can't you see that I'm leavin' today.

I hope you like it.

Smooches, Nick
