Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Bury it

This song was created for Game of Bands round 142 : "Only One Instrument II"


I climb down the mountain
(as important as up)
Heel and hips smashed tight
aching body, thoughts of light
There are mountains in us all
Some big, some small,
growing or shrinking
shadowed or snowcapped
It was the Fall before your fall

We buried it together, I bury it alone

I crawl out of the desert
Lost some things out there
by fault and on purpose
new and old verses
Skin chapped, thirsty, eyes burn wide
Searched outside to find my inside
It was the Spring before my spring
But something in me still hides

We buried it together, I bury it alone

I swim out of the sea
Body soaked and salted
emotions calm and deep
It feels as if I awoke from sleep
scaled up, scaled down
Complete silence, deafening sound
Sunshine or snowing
frozen or flowing
My oar hits the water
I keep on rowing

We buried it together, I bury it alone
