The Daily Song: Desire Matthew Mayfield

Matthew Mayfield’s Desire is the perfect soundtrack for yesterday’s poem She Burns.   His voice and his lyrics haunt me, they curl up and get under my skin.  They make me ache and remember who I used to be, what passion used to be when I was young and wild and time stretched out like a highway.  His whisky and smoke voice smolders and I can almost sense the lava inside of him.  Good stuff.


 

 


Desire

Heavy breath on my fingertips

I can feel you waiting

Wrapped inside of a lover’s spiral

No hesitating

The orbit, the tightrope, the sound

Spin me round and round

The walls fall down


My am I on fire for you

My am I on fire for you

Is this one desire for you?

My am I on fire for you


Circle back and the room is static

But still I taste you

Hearts are tethered, spoken forever

I’m always on your side

Could be, should be lines

Always drawn

They’re erased tonight


My am I on fire for you

My am I on fire for you

Is this one desire for you?

My am I on fire for you


My am I on fire

My am I on fire


My am I on fire for you

My am I on fire for you

Is this one desire for you?

For you
