  1. NEW FLAME - Pop

From the recording NEW FLAME - Pop

This co-written song won the pop category of the Australian Songwriting Association Awards a few years back. I was fortunate to meet Erinn Sherlock while attending a Songwriting retreat—I sometimes wondered why she never became an artist herself as she could have easily ticked all the boxes that a marketing team would hope for.
 
She now lives most of her days still happily writing, on the other side of the world but I'm so glad I was able to find time to collaborate with her beautiful, creative spirit before she left these Aussie shores.

Lyrics

V1
And I watched the moon set
As I’m sitting on the edge of my bed
Where another night meets another day
Like another flame, watch it melt away
Oooh yeah, I thought I heard your whispers in the air
How could I, you’re not there, but-
Pre Chorus
What if I could touch you, and ah
What if I could taste you, and ah
What if I could feel you, touching me too?
CHORUS
Wanna play with fire (I'm aching for more)
Feel the heat of your fire (Of what we had before)
You had to leave me but why her? (You walked out that door)
Cause you’ve found a new flame (Found a new flame)
V2
Water falling
Down my head, ’cross the back of my neck
And I’m, trying hard to ease the pain
But it, but it flares right up again
Oooh yeah, I thought I saw your shadow by the stair
How could I, you’re not there, but-
Pre Chorus
What if I could touch you, and ah
What if I could taste you, and ah
What if I could feel you, touching me too?
CHORUS
Wanna play with fire (I'm aching for more)
Feel the heat of your fire (Of what we had before)
You had to leave me but why her? (You walked out that door)
Cause you’ve found a new flame (Found a new flame)
Bridge
When my heart beats fast in the dead of night
And I'm chasing 'round the echoes in the back of my mind
And I’m reaching for your body but you’re not at my side
Just take me back to that-
Night when you took me so impossibly high
Should’ve known at the time by the look in your eye
But I’ve never, ever heard such a beautiful lie
Melting my heart with your-
CHORUS/OUTRO
Fire (I'm aching for more)
Feel the heat of your fire (Of what we had before)
You had to leave me but why her? (You walked our that door)
Cause you've found a new flame, found a new flame
Fire (I'm aching for more)
Feel the heat of your fire (Of what we had before)
You had to leave me but why her? (You walked out that door)
Cause you’ve found a new flame (found a new flame)
Mmn ooh aay, mmn ooh aay aay
Mmn, you've found a new flame, found a new flame
