Liner Notes: 

Every Wednesday at 12 Noon Eastern/9AM Pacific I do a songwriting live stream. This was written using the Muse's LyricCloud from the FAWM site. Keyword was weather, volunteerred by someone in the chat.

Open for collaboration if you're interested in setting it to music.

Lyrics: 

V1
Hot airless day
Beautiful sky
I can feel it in my bones
And it makes me cry
It’s hard to care
When everyone’s complaining
The heat and the pressure
Will it ever start raining

Chorus
Fires in the forests
Fires in the ocean
Heat so oppressive
We move in slow motion

V. 2
Hold ice to my head
A fan at my feet
Melting inside
In this lasting heat
Mild in my actions
My moods fluctuate
Pain in my joints
Some rain would be great

Chorus
Fires in the forests
Fires in the ocean
Heat so oppressive
We move in slow motion

v.3
Baking and frying
On relief we’re relying
The sun is so hot
Nature is dying
Hardened to rock
Turning to rust
Without that relief
It’s all turning to dust

bridge
Where is sanctuary
The sun won’t stop shining
I run to the river
And soak

Chorus
Fires in the forests
Fires in the ocean
Heat so oppressive
We move in slow motion

Vivid descriptions and great flow. I think I feel hotter now. I think I'd prefer heat over my insane mosquitos. Great write!
