Tormented Soul (Copyright 2018 Kathy Holmes)
Songwriting Prompt: Nighttime Fears

Verse 1

Tormented soul of the night
Dreaming of music, everything’s all right
Throat constricts in the winter’s cold
How did I get so damn old?

Chorus

Tormented soul, oh yeah
Heroes of youth too many have left
Tormented soul, oh yeah
Exhaling to see my breath

Verse 2

Tormented soul of the night
Dreaming of my name shining in bright lights
Mouth so parched in the desert summer
Dreams vanish – I should have been a drummer

Chorus

Tormented soul, oh yeah
Heroes of youth too many have left
Tormented soul, oh yeah
Exhaling to see my breath

Bridge

Living like a rock star
Too busy earning bread
What ever happened to the music
Making up for lost time until I am dead

Chorus

Tormented soul, oh yeah
Heroes of youth too many have left
Tormented soul, oh yeah
Exhaling to see my breath
