I listen to the lyrics more often then
anyone might imagine,
anybody can cry on cue if they choose
the correct motivation.
The rains have returned
both inside and out
and the feeling is strong,
the quiet damage of love is a ruin.
“You’ve married an Icarus,
he’s flown too close to the Sun”
when the words roll off her tongue
the emotional tragedy is visceral.
I did, do, I will, want, wish, would
cannot find the right phrase, the words
there is a quiet inside the silence of a
spring storm denying a heart its freedom.
I wrote you letters, over and over again,
they were meant to touch your heart, again.
Title is a lyric from Hamilton soundtrack – ‘Burn’
composer – Phillipa Soo
