*The inspiration for this song was years in the making.
I wrote a poem with the same name a long time ago and never put it to music.
I had a dream in Truth or Consequences, NM where three muses were performing onstage at an outdoor festival singing this melody (the verse) and it was so beautiful! I woke up and recorded it and then wrote the rest of the song that day and this would have been the fourth verse:
“Her feathers are full, her eyes still ablaze
She is manifest through the smoky haze
And with the rising sun comes a promising new day
Victorious songs are sung as she flies away!!!”

Jessica Star- lead vocal, harmony vocal, electric rhythm guitar
Joseph Blackfeather- bass
Winter- electric and acoustic guitars
Mark Abbott- drums and percussion
Sharon Knight- harmony vocal

Lyrics

At the end of the night
She’s torn and tattered
But she’s won the fight
All her enemies scattered
With her last bit of strength
She spreads her wings to fly
Electric mandarin sunrise scorches the sky
She’s a phoenix with a burning flame
Reborn to rise again
A phoenix with her wings outspread
Back to life from the dead
She’s a phoenix
Before she dies
Her mind and body are reeling
‘Twill be the last time she flies
She’s in deep need of healing
And in her bleakest hour
She reveals her names
And with a surging power
She bursts into flames
Red phoenix aflame, eyes blazing coal
From the ether she came to mirror your soul
It looks like she’s gone as the thunder clashes
O’er the moon clouds are drawn
All that’s left are her ashes
And with a gentle breeze
There is movement from within
She rises from the ash for her new life to begin
She’s a phoenix with a burning flame
Reborn to rise again
A phoenix with her wings outspread
Back to life from the dead
She’s a phoenix with a burning flame
Reborn to rise again
A phoenix with her wings outspread
Back from the Land of the Dead
She’s a phoenix
