Stand (At the Burning Tree)

Album: Black Country (2010)
  • I come to my senses
    And I feel like
    I've just been born
    Gonna' tear down
    The fences
    And my feet have been shackled
    And torn
    And I face my resistance
    And I stake my flag
    In the ground
    They will come in many colors
    In the silence
    Breakin' me down

    I'm ten miles away
    And I won't
    Be afraid
    I've been locked in this dream
    Far too long
    And I lie awake
    And the hurt
    Breaks my fall
    All alone, in this world
    With my symphony
    I Stand, Stand at the
    Burning Tree
    I Stand, Oh Lord
    Won't you justify me?

    Too long is my sentence
    I can't let myself
    Slowly drown
    There's a sign
    In the skyline
    I won't let this curse
    Take me down
    I have lived
    With the shaman
    Tried to get myself company
    And I walk
    With the angels
    When they come
    They don't lie to me

    I'm ten miles away
    And I won't
    Be afraid
    I've been locked in this dream
    Far too long
    And I lie awake
    And the hurt
    Breaks my fall
    All alone, in this world
    With my symphony
    I Stand, Stand at the
    Burning Tree
    I Stand, Oh Lord
    Won't you justify me?

    I'm ten miles away
    And I won't
    Be afraid
    I've been locked in this dream
    Far too long
    And I lie awake
    And the hurt
    Breaks my fall
    All alone, in this world
    With my symphony
    I Stand, Stand at the
    Burning Tree
    I Stand, Oh Lord
    Won't you justify me? Writer/s: JOE BONAMASSA, GLENN HUGHES
