Proverb
10/31/2019

Absence  makes the heart grow fonder.
And it also makes it wander,
Hearts start out so open and pristine
It’s not too long before you smell the kerosene

An open door may tempt a saint.
The smell of her perfume can make you faint.
Lead us away from temptation,
Don’t tip the scale towards damnation.

To thine own self be true, this I say to you
To be anything else I cannot see.
When you try to touch the sun you may get burned
Still I fly to the sky, my lust for life yearns to be free.

The war it must be fought, to stand up or stand not
The choice is yours tonight,’
There is a war inside my mind,
Do I lay down or seem unkind?

To thine own self be true, this I say to you
To be anything else I cannot see.
When you try to touch the sun you may get burned
Still I fly to the sky, my lust for life yearns to be free.

You are no worse off than knowing your worst self
Can you learn from your past and sit it on the shelf?
Can you build a life that will last?
Just shove that shit to the past!

So you turn back once more.
It’s just one more step away. Not interested in an even score
No more games and no more words left to say
It’s just one more step, one more step away!

To thine own self be true, this I say to you
To be anything else I cannot see.   
When you try to touch the sun you may get burned
Still I fly to the sky, my lust for life yearns to be free.


(C)
Still I fly to the sky, my lust for life still yearns to be free.
To thine own self be true, this I say to you
To be anything else I cannot see.
When you try to touch the sun you may get burned

Music is a tribal experience, and it is about connection.  Figure out how to reach in and change their emotions. Learn how to put them in a mood. That’s what music is for.”-JH.
“..And remember, a song should contain only one story, or one message, told from a single point of view” - DG
Its the little mistakes that become great. and when it falls in place, the feeling is  indescribable.

Re: PROVERB

Seems  a  better   match   to the  first  tune ,perhaps  some  minor  changes  in the  phrasing and  a  few  extra  its  ands and  I 's  will  make  it  fit  better .Very  powerful lyrics  Scott  I  think  the  finished  song  will  be  great .
