The Phoenix (Remastered) Lyrics

The Phoenix - Judee Sill

 

The sun was red and the fires were roarin'

 

Stars aligned and the webs were spun

I coulda sworn I heard my spirit soarin'

Guess I'm always chasin' the sun

Hopin' we will soon be one

Until it turns around to me then I try to run

 

On phosphorous wings the phoenix floated

 

The fires froze and the sea was hushed

 

And when I tried to speak the sun imploded

And the war will wage in my guts

 

Till the Devil bites the dust

I never say him losin' a race

But I think he must

 

The great storm raged

 

And the power kept growin'

 

Dragons rose from the land below

 

And even now I wonder where I'm goin'

Ever since a long time ago

 

I've tried to let my feelings show

 

I'd like to think I'm bein' sincere

But I'll never

Know

 

The sun was red and the fires were roarin'

 

Stars aligned and the webs were spun

I coulda sworn I heard my spirit soarin'

Guess I'm always chasin' the sun

Hopin' we will soon be one

Until it turns around to me

Then I try to run
