Testo della canzone Bullet in a Bonfire (Commentary) (Brantley Gilbert), tratta dall'album The Devil Don't Sleep (Deluxe / Big Machine Radio Release Special)

Bullet in a Bonfire (Commentary) - Brantley Gilbert

One of the most amazing things to me about this project
There are 26 songs on it and you have writting credit on 25
Only because one is a Hank Junior cover
You are absolutely an amazing and prolific writer and I mean
And you write some really great songs so
How important is it for you to be known as a songwriter
As much as a performer, a singer?

It's definitely important to me
I do think I've been misunderstood in the past
Because I think maybe I didn't explain things maybe the way I should
There are artists in this business that don't write songs or don't write all their songs
And I think maybe in the past I may have come across as being you know, uh
Judgmental?

Yeah, and that's not the case at all, and I'd like to clear that up
There's talented songwriters I mean talented is the understatement of the century
For the talent and the blessed songwriters we have in this town
And if it weren't for singers that didn't write and artists that didn't write (yeah)
Those songwriters wouldn't have their opportunity to do
What it is that they're so, so, so, so good at

So I do care and I'm very very appreciative to the singers and artists in this business
Who understand that they're not writers not trying to be writers
That just want to give writing credit to where it's due

But I feel like where my strength is, where what it is about me that works
Is that I'd sing things that I write
So I write things that I'm able to sing (right)
But that I'd tell my story and then I write with those other talented people in town
And I'm able to come together with them and tell my story
And I'm able to have a hand in it
I guess that's what I'm trying to say

Well and I think that maybe people misinterpreted that
Just because it's not right for you
That you're not saying that it's wrong for other people to do it
It's just not the way that you choose to do it (exactly, exactly)
Yeah, I get it (yeah)
Totally get it

And you know
And like you said I think in the past it's been misunderstood
I never meant to come across that way
To me I'm honored to be able to have written the songs that I wrote
With these incredibly talented people (right)
That went on this record
And I'm extremely thankful that God blessed me with the ability
To have a hand in telling my story

Well and I'd just hoped that you know maybe especially through this album
That people begin to realize
I mean what an incredible and prolific writer you are
'Cause I think that's something that's been overlooked a bit
In the past maybe people didn't realized that you write everything that you sing
And when you really get down and digest the lyrics
And figure out how profound they are
And how well written these songs are and then to realize that you wrote them all
Hopefully you'll get more credit in that arena
'Cause I, I think you're an incredible writer
Well, thank you I appreciate it
You're welcome

And here's one that he co-wrote with Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip
This is Bullet in a Bonfire
