Life is colour, life is black and white.  Life is late nights, life is a hangover.  Life is friendship, love is love that shouldn’t be but is, life is singing out loud, life is a loud electric guitar, life is…


Heart on Fire (Draft lyric ideas)

Heart on Fire 

A.J. Steel 2019 



We live in houses on these quiet streets

You don’t see it unless you go deep 

But there’s madness 

Yeah there’s madness 




To bold to care


To care what a stranger thinks 

Is a dangerous thing 

Baby don’t give them the best of you 

When they get their hands on you 

They won’t let go.  

Baby let’s set this life…


You know when you know

Stars exploded in the black sky, 

There were a million different colours  

which flashed before our eyes. 


As we walked along the beach,  

The sea was cool and calm, 

I held your soft hand…


Glass tower

There’s a murmur outside, 

It’s the sound of the world passing by. 

Safe and sound in our glass tower, 

The world can’t reach us.   

I used to dream of silver and gold, 

Now all I…


Why are you so serious.

Why are you so serious? 

The moon wants to rain light down over you, 

But you do your best,  

to live inside the black shadows. 

Your heart rages like an angry sun, 

Don’t you think…



We danced beneath the setting sun 

And felt the release of the day.

We talked until we ran out of words 

We prayed it would always be this way.

But fire and rain don’t see things…


Fires and liars.

Desire is a drug 

It blurs the space between the moments 

Danger is the fire 

That you light to hide feeling like a liar 

Be good to me  

I’ll be good to you  



Learning to love what I see.

It’s time to own my face  

It’s time to like these blue eyes starring back at me from the other side of this mirror  

To love the blood that courses through my veins  

Baby I believe in…


Dare to be yourself.

I’m trying to be myself  

Baby it’s harder than you think  

I wrestle with these demons inside 

Maybe that’s why I love the night  

I scared of their arrows 

When they’re coming straight for me  


A time of reflection.

The end of the year is a time for reflection, I actually think I should reflect weekly and in 2019 perhaps that could be a good thing for me. 

Reflection gives us the opportunity to see ourselves as we…


Doing what needs to be done

Have you experienced a feeling like you should really be doing something but something inside you says, I’m just not up for it right now?  Maybe it’s that run you said you were going to do or maybe you just…
