Beautiful and so dangerous to me
I could stare out you for hours but you'd burn if I get too close
Smoke and light are the perfect disguise
I wanna know your heart but you said it's always not the right time
From ashes to ashes everything we were goes up in flames
From ashes to ashes
Every trophy melted down wish I never played the game
I hope that you stay warm, burning everything we were
Oh from ashes to ashes
I ignored imaged one and made a beat using Image 2, as i was in the mood for something kind of semi-warm. I don't know what mood to describe it than maybe happy? It's not uplifting, but it's not got much minor key's so who knows.
The track starts with a straight forward quarter note chord progression, before it's built with a breakbeat, a funky bassline and a choir pad sound. Soon after the melody comes in making a blend of chill but semi-funky kind of beats. Throughout the piece is different sections, each with it's own chords and sound. Nothing complex or out of the blue, and all the same i really like the sounds in this one, very laidback. Enjoy!
Lyrics are approximate
It was your eyes
that set me burning
The sounds you made
They kept me going
The fire lit, uncontrolled all day
Needed to get away from you
Stop the flame inside
Controlled burn exposed to you
Let you sustain within my mind
I found the fire inside me
You set that fire inside me
All the air, sucked right outside
Don't let it all burn away
Keep my head in the game
