Catch Me If You Can

Inspired by 911, Grenfell, Life and eventually, Love – see the iamges in the video below to get the idea I was aiming for in the music. Cheers!


 

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN

—————

I’ve lived my whole lifetime

When I wake up in the morning

I’ll try to save to save the world

Over and over again –

Now this worm is turning

Hard lessons we’re learning

When you look skywards

You’ll see me soaring.

~~~

Through my high-rise windows

The angels are calling

Here at the End of Days

I should be more than this:

Now my world is burning

There’ll be no returning

When you look skywards

You’ll see me falling

~~~

Pick up the blanket

That’s lying on the ground

Please catch me if you can

I’m on the edge now

I’m taking flight

I feel the fire beneath my wings

Hold out your arms

And if you catch me – I’m yours

~~~

FIRST GUITAR SOLO

~~~

Through the smoke and mirrors

The heroes are calling

Here at the End of Time

We’ll be the same as them

Now the crowd is screaming:

‘There’ll be no more dreaming!’

When you look skywards

You’ll see me falling.

~~~

Pick up the pieces

You’ll find them on the ground

Please fix me if you can

I’m on the edge now

I’m letting go

I feel the fire inside my heart

Hold out your hands

And if you take mine – I’m yours

~~~

I’ve no more excuses

When I called her this morning

I’ll try to save the girl

Over and over again

When I try to change her

I end up a stranger

When you look inwards

You’ll see me soaring

~~~

SECOND GUITAR SOLO

~~~

When you look skywards

You’ll see me falling.

~~~

The End.
