Liner Notes: 

was unwell yesterday! the up side is i woke early and saw the skirmish! so here we go! even got a bridge!

Lyrics: 

V1 My temperature is rising
The mercury is high
The feelings i have
Just terrify

V2 Never felt like this
In all of my years
But now with anticipation
Comes all of my fears

PC If you think you can see flames
You’ll know its genuine
But you Ain’t seen nothing yet
like the fire within

C Burning burning fire
Holding tight my gaze
Lets see what will transpire
In these strange old days

V3 Thought i had seen it all
Thought time had passed me by
Just going through the motions
Till its time to die

V4 But you have put the spark back
Decision time is near
Can you help me overcome
This underlying fear

B Can i risk it all
Will i take a chance
Will i give it one last go
In this lovers dance

PC If you think you can see flames
You’ll know its genuine
But you Ain’t seen nothing yet
like the fire within

C Burning burning fire
Holding tight my gaze
Lets see what will transpire
In these strange old days

Wow, great sound but sorry you were ill. I like all the flames and fire imagery. Very strong they fit well with the 'strange days' prompt.

Feel better- this is quite a journey there-- nicely done!! love that major-to minor chord change in the verse, (very' john lennon meets leonard cohen', if that makes any sense) Lyrically, the pre chorus and chorus are perhaps a little murky in terms of the metaphor of 'burning' perhaps (?), or maybe i'm just not thinking it thru right.. but this is really wonderful, you should revisit this at some point.

I hate to hear you've been I'll, but this is just great. Creative skirmish!

There's a comforting intimacy in your voice. Very nice and combined with a smooth sounding mellow tune, produced an enjoyable listen. Feel better. : )

Really fine song. It’s all good but I especially like that prechorus lyric

Very sweet song. I like the story you tell. It has a warm feel to it from your emotional vocal. Nice write.

An excellent example how out of a very negative situation something beautiful and positive can come out: a very beautiful song! Your lyrics, music, singing, playing and demo are very moving and very enjoyable to listen to. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Excellent music on this one - love the chord changes throughout, nice contrast between verse/pre/chorus. Sad but hopeful story in your lyric that had me longing.

Oh this is a hot love song! The music flows well and captures the loving feeling of the lyric. As always your writing is so well developed and conveys the longing well as well as the element of apprehension about following our heart that is well articulated in the bridge.

What a sweet, sweet song! Yes, it doesn’t matter how old you are - falling in love makes you feel young again. The lyrics are great and the piano is lovely. This is a very enjoyable listen and a wonderfully creative take on the skirmish prompt. Nicely done!

I hope you’re feeling better!

Quite the tune for a skirmish, particularly when feeling sick. Very nice piano playing and sentimental lyrics.
