Song (with note)

Come sit by the fire and take the chill from your bones
I can see from your eyes that you came here on your own
You lost all of your battles ever since you were grown
Carrying the remnants of your shattered throne

Ai Ai Ai, ai ai ai, ai ai ai, ai ai ai

We’ll tell each other stories of our sorrow and loss
Of broken hearts around our necks like that fabled albatross
They say a rolling stone will gather no moss
But we’re failing under the weight of that heavy cross

Ai Ai Ai, ai ai ai, ai ai ai, ai ai ai

(short bridge)

These aren’t ballads to beauty by the pound or the gram
There is nothing left to sing but …
The love songs of the damned

Take a swig from the bottle and a hit from the brown
Rest your weary head and let your body drown
Stuck inside your heart under that awkward crown
There’s nowhere going up it’s always down

Ai Ai Ai, ai ai ai, ai ai ai, ai ai ai

Ain’t got no food and there’s no place you can sleep
But you can fall in a coma in this endless deep
All of this dust that you cannot sweep
But we’ll tell each other tales til the time to reap

Ai ai ai, ai ai ai, ai ai ai, ai ai ai

These aren’t ballads to beauty by the pound or the gram
There is nothing left to sing but …
The love songs of the damned

There’s nothing living here in this desert of soul
Paid the price and took the pain part of the whole
I know you were left hanging in that pigeonhole
Trying to find a way to do damage control

Ai ai ai, ai ai ai, ai ai ai, ai ai ai

You’ve travelled far and wide to find yourself here
Only to find that there is everything to fear
The fire warms your bones but does nothing for your cheer
You are ripped up uprooted and destroyed with the sneer

Ai ai ai, ai ai ai, ai ai ai, ai ai

These aren’t ballads to beauty by the pound or the gram
There is nothing left to sing but …
The love songs of the damned

These aren’t ballads to beauty by the pound or the gram
There is nothing left to sing but …
The love songs of the damned

Note. I have the lyrics and the melody. I’ve written the structure but my physical injuries won’t let me play it.
