Challenge #3 Lyrics

A day late (though yesterday was Saturday in my brain), but here are the lyrics for this week's challenge.


"I'm On Fire" - Bruce Springsteen

Hey little girl is your daddy home
Did he go away and leave you all alone
I got a bad desire
I'm on fire

Tell me now baby is he good to you
Can he do to you the things that I do
I can take you higher
I'm on fire

Sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby
edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
through the middle of my soul

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
and a freight train running through the
middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire
I'm on fire
I'm on fire
I'm on fire



"Angry Angel" by Imogen Heap

this is an obsession,
a kind of aggression with himself
it's the way he'll always be
he loves to rebel,
to go against his ten commandments
for him, that's just being free.

and he always will, get his thrills,
the only way he knows
how
well it might make you frown
but he just loves, being that dove,
roaming where he cares to go
to a state of mind which no-one knows

over there stands my angry angel
and he's shaking his head, in disgrace with me
over there stands my angry angel
and he's frowning like hell, but I'm not
feeling guilty
over and over again, more and more
for the pain
to release himself, from this shell
time after time, you may glare at
him for the way he looks
like something drawn up from
hell

but that's just his cover,
from what is under it
all his imagination, his
passion for a creation
which he has discovered,
uncovered a world, of
amazing sensations
his own little nation

over there stands my angry angel
and he's shaking his head, in disgrace with me
over there stands my angry angel
and he's frowning like hell, but I'm not
feeling guilty

I don't care,
I'm flying


Have fun, guys!

Oh good! More distractions from writing what I'm actually supposed to be writing. Yay. :D
Angry Angel by Imogen Heap

The quality's not fantastic, but... it's there.
