Would this Fire?

from The Mend by JasonTylerBurton



An old song re-born. A winter tune.


With the summer slowly fading
And the snowbirds all flying south
I’ll be wrapped up in November
Waiting for honey from your mouth

Would this fire burn
If there was no one here to tend it
Would my heart break
If you were here to mend it

Oh where are you now
Because I’m still here

Take me back until I remember
The rains of May, the blooms of June
Because we’re creeping toward December
Waiting for light to outlast the gloom

Would we still pray
If we knew no one was listening
Would we still love
If we had no choice at all

Oh where are you now
Because I’m still here

So bending, I am bending
A melody might save me tonight
And mending, I am mending
Maybe you can come and save me tonight
Maybe you can be my melody tonight
