I was feeling anxious today so I wrote this song. Could work as my 2020 theme song, I think. The reference to fire comes from my novel, where an Enchantress's goal is to burn the swamp. Obviously, not great for the characters living there.

Another song (World on Fire)

somedays i dare to look past my window
catch a glimpse of the world in my eyes
i see the smoke from the fire (the fire)
i see the flames rising higher (and higher)
as the dark closes in
this is the end

it’s horror watching castles of sand
dissolve into dust and ash again
i see the smoke from the fire (the fire)
i see the flames rising higher (and higher)
the earth crumbles into the sea
this is the end

the shadows deepen
and the night lasts forever
but this isn’t the end 
i know it might look bad
but i’ll keep holding on
cause i know no matter how this goes
you’re still in control
and you will lead me home

let my castles crumble to the ground
let my walls wash away in the sea
i see the smoke from the fire (the fire)
i see the flames rising higher (and higher)
but i’ll hold onto hope
this isn’t the end

one day all these clouds will roll away
and i will see you face to face
i see the smoke from the fire the fire
i see the flames rising higher and higher
but i know you’ll return
this isn’t the end

the shadows deepen
and the night lasts forever
but this isn’t the end 
i know it might look bad
but i’ll keep holding on
cause i know no matter how this goes
you’re still in control
and you will lead me home

and if you are for me
who can be against me
i will not fear cause you will be with me
and if you are for me
who can be against me
you will not be shaken
you will not be shaken

the shadows deepen
and the night lasts forever
but this isn’t the end
i know it might look bad
but i’ll keep holding on
cause i know no matter how this goes
you’re still in control
and you will lead me home
