about

This song feels like a complete chapter of my life all on its own.

Which is why it doesn't belong on an album.

Wildfire came out of the darkest corner I've walked through in my life thus far. It was a moment where the days blurred together, everything became grey, and my old, happy self vanished. I was surrounded by tall buildings, bustling city streets, and loud noises around every corner. I didn't belong... but, worse than that, I didn't try to. I was tired. I was dull. I was the bitterest version of myself, something that I swore I'd never be.

In true naive-little-ryne fashion, I thought moving back home would solve all of my problems and that I'd get back into my house and sip chai tea and live a hunky-dory life.... WRONG. Though moving did help me, I soon found myself in therapy (an AMAZING, life changing/saving experience. I'd recommend it 10/10) and realized that getting back into my home would require months of tireless work.

Thanks to my therapy, I developed the strength to over come my depression, put forth the man hours to get back into my home, and take back my happiness. THIS is what the songs is about to me. It's me deciding to take back my life.

And I want to share it with you all, for FREE. Because I know so many other people experience what I have and I equally know that there aren't enough artists talking about these struggles. So, I want to give this feeling a voice. I want it to be your voice if you need it to be. Depression is a wildfire burning in your bones and if you don't speak your pain, it can burn you alive.

But it doesn't have to. Take back what is yours. Take back your happiness.

lyrics

The spinning starts
And the doorways
Are sealed forevermore

Like a pirouette
In the darkest space
Guidance is what I
Profoundly implore

Theres no way out of this nightmare
I'm falling apart at the seams
I'm stuck in this ungodly mindset
With no sign of a lantern's gleam

Falling, falling into the dark deep
Will I crash at the bottom or wake from this dream?
You're like a wildfire burning in my bones
And those three little words will hurt more than sticks and stones

A burnouts life
Yeah, you live it with pride
You swear that nothing good
Comes from consistency

Theres a dotted line
Where you expect me to sign
My life away to you
Not object in the least

Every corner I turn, you are pacing yourself, always ten steps ahead of me
I hate you so much, but thats jaded by the pain rooted deep

Falling, falling into the dark deep
Will I crash at the bottom or wake from this dream?
You're like a wildfire burning in my bones
And those three little words will hurt more than sticks and stones

Yes, I made the mistake with you
By saying hello when we first met
But I'm only human
I cannot change the past

Falling, falling into the dark deep
Will I crash at the bottom or wake from this dream?
You're like a wildfire burning in my bones
And those three little words will hurt more than sticks and stones
More than sticks and stones
