Notes:

This week I go a little darker in tone and outlook. “Set To Burn” is a song about the concept that the longer you are out of love, the harder it is to find your way back in. It has been a long time since I have been in love, and sometimes it is difficult to relate to the concept of being there again. This is a song about having a lot to give, and not really knowing where to put it. The music alternates between a kooky/off kilter verse, and an open and longing chorus. The guitars at the end, when the chorus repeats, were a fun change of pace and were meant to symbolize a possible change in outlook, and perhaps an oncoming optimism. By the way, you should definitely come back next week because this blog turns six months old! In all likelihood there will be something free, and at the very least there will be new music!

Here’s hoping your Monday doesn’t totally suck.

~Jesse

lyrics

Lyrics:

One morning I was set to burn
I’ve been learning not to learn
Am I what I’d hoped to be?
This way no-one gets to me

I’d move like a burning sun
I’d trust like I’d just begun
I’d lose like I’d been outrun
I’d love like I kept someone

In the silence someone waits for me
I’ve been stuck in history
I’ve been up against a wall
I’ve been trouble to us all

I’d move like a burning sun
I’d trust like I’d just begun
I’d lose like I’d been outrun
I’d love like I kept someone
