This song was written from the flat of my back.
It was the only place I could be
Life hit me so hard, left my soul a broken shard.
So I wrote this song from the flat… of my back.

This song was written from the flat of my back.
Dark was all I wanted to see.
Heard you were dead, the sorrow went to my head.
So I wrote this song from the flat… of my back.

This song was written from the flat of my back.
Wars and armies took you from me.
My love I give, without you I don’t want to live.
So I wrote this song from the flat… of my back.

This song was written from the flat of my back.
It’s where I wanted to be.
I’ll make no more war, lay down in peace forever more.
So I wrote this song from the flat… of my back.
I wrote this song from the flat… of my back.
I got an idea for something last night, and as I was writing this morning it sort of changed itself from a love song into... well... this.

Interesting! The ellipsi (sic) throw me off a bit, I'll admit, but that's probably due to your trying to transcribe lyrics from music, yes?

I had to think a while about why you would write from the flat of your back. What I've come up with is that you yourself are flat on your back for poetic purposes; it brings me ideas of giving in and letting go, of defeat and maybe tragedy.

Powerful refrain, by all means.

You're very welcome. Ask me to read it again tomorrow, and I'd probably tell you something completely different ;)

Yeah, people who hear me sing it say the same thing. I didnt mean it to be, but I guess that's just how it came out.
