Did this just because I could lol smile

Drawn to the flame, loving the thrill
Hot for the guy with the looks that kill
I'm not so reckless, I bide my time
You were the angel with sin on her mind

You liked'em dangerous, you liked'em mean
I was the friend that you kept in between
Flings with the bad boy, the bruiser, and the cheat
Rivers of destiny flow till they meet

You met your match with a Harley an' tattoos
He revved you up and made you say I do

He'd hit the bottle then slap you around
Threaten to kill you if he ever found out
That you called the cops, or tried to leave
If you doubted his fury he'd make you believe

One night he left for a night on the town
Came home hopped up and knocked you down
Passed out cold with his boots on his feet
Rivers of destiny flow till they meet

Moment of clarity, made up your mind
Life's too short, you gotta' leave this time

You grabbed your purse, mashed the gas to the floor
Screaming mad you made your way to my door
I'd never seen you battered so bad
Broken and crying, sadder than sad

The witching hour, you finally closed your eyes
Waiting in silence I took off my disguise
I'd hear that bike coming down the street
Rivers of destiny flow till they meet

Sunday morning, sun burning red
God forgive me for the thoughts in my head

Tried to push by me when he kicked in the door
Screamin' and cussin' bout'a worthless whore
My brass knuckles really rang his bell
Put him down toothless and bloody as hell

Dangerous and different as you held my arm
You saw my kindness was a fortress from harm
Love is vicious when hearts are in sync
Rivers of destiny flow till they meet

As I mentioned elsewhere, I like this more each time I hear it. It does have a certain sameness throughout, but that seems to just drive the story relentlessly forward. The sound you have going there is great and really matches the cold anger in the lyric, which is extremely visual and cinematic.

Thanks for the spin Steady!

Great story Japov.
I love a story song. Great sound too although I get what Gavin says about sameness.
Maybe a slight change of rhythm in those bridges would fix that.

Good job.

Vic

I love story songs too smile But, we have to give "Carroll Kiphen" credit for that!

Thanks Vic.

I run my little Marshall Valvestate through an old red "kidney-bean" PODxt. Then I jack that into a refurbished 2012 MAC mini with a soundcard (no interface) running an older version of Logic-X. The "mini" is plugged into my TV in my living room... I literally record from the comfort of my couch smile

Now, now Carroll. You know darn well there's no way I could possibly share the gravitational pull of "The Great Upholstered One"... That would be CATACLYSMIC! smile
