about

For Spintunes 9, Round 3 : Write a song for the (theoretical) movie adaptation of a book.

I chose Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig. I'd link it, but Bandcamp no likey links. Use the Googletron, my children.

lyrics

BLACKBIRDS

One touch
You want to rush away
Eyes open, nothing left
To erase the written fate

Tell me
Why you stay in my wake
Why do I feel you'll stay until
There's nothing left to take

Searchlights in the distance
But they never pierce the gray
We'd stay lost all night
If you could have your way

Whispers that wind around your ear
Rhythms that only you can hear
You earned all their songs, a how but not a why
Laughter seconds before screams
Prophets strangling our dreams
Blackbirds blotting out the sky

One touch
It echoes back your name
Too much to think about
Who's waiting out of frame

You arrive on darkest wings
You can say what the night will bring
Carrion, poisonous things
You arrive on darkest wings

Car crash in the pouring rain
Enginges out on a falling plane
You're the chooser of the slain
But who will choose for you?

Whispers that wind around your ear
Rhythms that only you can hear
You earned all their songs, a how but not a why
Laughter seconds before screams
Prophets strangling our dreams
Blackbirds blotting out the sky
Echoes pounding through your head
Futures hide beneath your bed
Make them believe, you said no one else will die
Highways until your work is done
Burdens weighing like a ton
Blackbirds blotting out the sky
