"Burning Hearts" as written by Neil Boshart and Shane Told....
The blood is rushing to my head
This room is spinning round the bed
A flashing image perforates
Tarnishes memories of grace
A bursting fiery fortune to misshape

And if my body makes it out
Unscathed and safe from broken vows
A promise spoken leaves me holding on
I just can't get a hold of
Why we always hurt the ones we love
Keep burning hearts to keep us strong

A crack has formed in the foundation
The floor is falling out from under me
A pleading loser makes his case
A liar shakes his hand and breaks
A life of honor turns into his shame

And if my body makes it out
Unscathed and safe from broken vows
A promise spoken leaves me holding on
I just can't get a hold of
Why we always hurt the ones we love
Keep burning hearts to keep us strong

It's all my fault (it's all my fault)
This eagle's flying down below where shadows fall
Now it's sinking in (now it's sinking in)
That I'm sinking into this
place I never thought I'd view

You can't trust me, I'm not worthy
You won't ever feel this way
The storm is moving overhead
The wind is blowing back, we've been disliked

And if my body makes it out
Unscathed and safe from broken vows
A promise spoken leaves me holding on
I just can't get a hold of
Why we always hurt the ones we love
Keep burning hearts to keep us strong

    Lyric CorrectionExtremely important correction, in the chorus it should be "always" instead of "only". Makes more sense and you can clearly hear it in the acoustic version. Obviously we don't hurt "only" the one we love. Its just we always manage to hurt them too, and usually the worst.

    General CommentThe storm is moving overhead
    The wind is blowing back, we've been misled

    I believe is correct, not betrayed. Other than that it looks good

    General CommentShane: "This song came out way better than I expected. I had a lot of trouble figuring out what to sing over it, and then all of a sudden it just clicked and I wrote the chorus melody. I remember when I first sang this song in the studio, we ran it all the way through and the producer was just blown away. He wanted to keep the first take and just let it be. I thought maybe I should do one more, though. Neil played a pretty crazy solo in this song, too, which I don't think we've ever really done before."
