Bring The heat

Lyrics -

Well I gazed upon a miraged heat wave across the land
And I’m drawn to that lonely tree in the vastness of sand
I bathe in its shade with my head in my hands
And I listen to the leaves as they dance
They’re telling me all the secrets that blow by in the wind
They talk of all the triumphs and the sins
They tell me sometimes you lose, sometimes you win
‘Cause as one day ends another begins

Well you can bring the heat and you can bring defeat
But nothing’s gonna hold me back
I could run off course with my many of flaws
But I’ll get back on track
And you can tell me I’m not good enough
That I might as well just turn back
But I’ll make it to the end of this road someday
Even if it’s my last

As I hit the peak of a winning streak I’m woken from the thrill
As I notice this little incline is growing into a hill
And as the hill grows into a mountain and my energy is down to nil
I resolve to humour this test of will

‘Cause you can bring the heat and you can bring defeat
But nothing’s gonna hold me back
And I could run off course with my many of flaws
But I’ll get back on track
And you can tell me I’m not good enough
That I might as well just turn back
But I’ll make it to the end of this road someday
Even if it’s my last
