Kerosene

This is a song I wrote about my feelings towards God, Ella, and the grieving process…How to have faith and hope in the midst of this anger and sadness.

Kerosene

Scratch that itch
God knows it hurts
God knows there are no words
God knows they run dry

Send your love
Send it wide
Cuz I don’t know if I can go another mile

Flickering
Oh my soul is withering
Your light is shining
But I don’t know if its getting in

Oh like kerosene
I burn like something you never seen
I burn like kerosene

Did you see?
When I wept in my husbands arms
I just want to see her
I just want my baby girl

Drink it up
This sorrow is a cup
And my soul can’t get enough
This poison is rough

Feel the heat
Rising in my very bones
This anger is a blanket
And you’re never coming back home

Oh like kerosene
I burn like something you never seen
I burn like kerosene

There you go
I laid bare my burdens
God only knows
If anybody’s heard them

The wind is blowing
Rain is coming down
I’m trying like hell
To not let this fire out

I’m just a wick
married to your kerosene
Only you know what fuels my fire
What keeps me burning

Oh like kerosene
I burn like something you never seen
I’ll be burning
Like kerosene
