original, recorded as a solo project


the moth dear loves the candle
and it yearns to join with the light
but it burns to be so close dear
and it dies alone in the night

the last thing i want to do is hurt you
so i tried to warn you from the start
that your love could never hold me
i've got a wildfire in my heart

god gave me wings of wax dear
to try to fly to the sun
i know the sea will swallow me
but not until i have my fun

when burning trees send their embers
to fly to the roofs of the town
keep an eye to the firefighters
better men than I stand their ground


from South Bound Train, track released October 27, 2020
