Liner Notes: 

Not a big fan of this one to be honest, but it was nice to play with the structure and image.

Lyrics: 

With chewed out hands and a failing torch
I stand on the deck of a bug-ridden porch
Can’t get this kindling to bite
So who wants to be my match tonight?

You can come closer if you dare
You can squint out the failing sun
Burnt out oranges fan my hair
It takes one puff of smoke to come undone

The fallout spreads through denim threads
Cutting off the world don’t turn no heads
I’ve got half a mind to show you out
But the other wants to see what the fuss is about

Yeah, you can come closer if you dare
You can squint out the failing sun
Burnt out oranges fan my hair
It takes one puff of smoke to come undone

You can come closer if you wanna get hurt
Get your hands in the dirt, get your hands in the dirt
Burnt out umbers spray my hair
It takes one puff of smoke to destroy fresh air

The kindling’s wet and my breath is hot
Every gasp in takes all I’ve got
Shaking hands and a dying light
Who’s gonna let me go tonight?

Yeah, you can come closer if you dare
You can squint out the failing sun
Burnt out oranges fan my hair
It takes one puff of smoke to come undone.

It takes one puff of smoke to come undone.

Love the guitar, melody, vocals, and lyrics! Your guitar is a great sounding instrument. I like the rhymes too...great job on this.

I love this! Your vocals are awesome and the melody so beautiful! Nicely strummed guitar too! Excellent hook and this line "who wants to be my match tonight?" is perfect! Hot, smoldering lyrics describe this well! I totally enjoyed my listen!
