about

I am incredibly excited that this is the first song I am ever posting to my BandCamp as well as my YouTube. Hope you all enjoy it.

This is a song I’ve been wanting to do for quite awhile as it is a tribute to my dog, Gypsy. I wanted to post it on Christmas day since this last Christmas was more than likely the last one we'll get to have with her. She has had cancer for quite awhile and it’s starting to take a turn for the worse. This is basically from my perspective as I see what it does to her as she starts to wind down, heartbreaking as it is.

I don’t normally write stuff this dark or serious but this one I really needed to do, and so I want to dedicate this song to anybody else who has had to watch a pet they loved go through this.

Gypsy, you have been nothing short of amazing all these years and I love you with all of my heart. I hope this song at least somewhat helps make nearing the end of your road just a little bit easier for you. :)

LYRICS:

Ever since the day that we had first met
You always had that extra bounce in your step
Never knowing which way life would take us
Seeing this is one of my deepest cuts

Heavy panting, aimless running around
Random bursts of energy are found
You barrel through the house, it breaks my heart
Since I had watched you grow and was there from the start

You’re burning bright
Brighter than I ever wanted to see you burn
You’re burning to the point of no return
It brings a tear to my eye
You’ll soon be lighting up the sky
And burning bright

I’d complain that there’s a lump in my throat
But how can I when there’s dozens on your coat?
One would think it brings a smile to my face
To see you bounce around and jump all over the place

Not one bit

Your hearing’s gone, can barely even see
Sometimes I wonder if you even notice me
I kneel down and look into your blank stare
Because I want to believe that you’re still in there

Telling you how much I love you does no good
You know I’d take it all away if only I could
I pray that this is all just a second wind
But deep down I know we’re getting closer to the end

You’re burning bright
Brighter than I ever wanted to see you burn
You’re burning to the point of no return
It brings a tear to my eye
You’ll soon be lighting up the sky
A truth I cannot deny

Because you’re burning bright
You’re burning bright
You’re burning bright
You’re burning bright
