Flames of the Phoenix: Making Up

Tall Tall Shadow by Basia Bulat

“But there is no light that you can’t live in
Tear it apart
Your old confession made in the dark
Now every hour, change of heart
You’re running away
But the shadow is yours”

This choice is probably a bit of a twist on the theme. I consider ‘making up’ to be the resolution of a conflict, even if that happens to be an inner conflict, as well as the process of....well, making things up. The song talks about someone who realizes that they have been lying to themselves and have to face the truth as it filters back through the world they have created. If there’s one thing I’m notorious for doing, it’s lying to myself. Eventually I’ll have to turn back and see what I’ve blinded myself to.

The End
