about

Crash & Burn is the latest release from UK native Charlie Grant, who has been steadily building a fanbase with his 2020 releases Stranger’s Eyes, Whatever Your Heart Desires and Wide Open. Crash & Burn was recorded in isolation between two Berlin studios in late 2020, Producer Jonathan Kluth taking Charlie’s home recorded vocals and guitars and building a soundscape around them in one inspired, late night session at his home studio.

Once in a while Charlie feels compelled to create his own versions of songs that he’s worked on for other artists, to show them in a whole new light. Crash & Burn was originally released by the popular Spanish YouTuber Melo Moreno in 2018 on her debut album Colours. The song deals with having to get out of a friendship with someone who is determined to self destruct before they drag you down with them.

lyrics

How do you light up the room
When there’s so much darkness in you?
You punched right through the walls,
Don’t tell me nothing’s wrong
How do you wear it so well?
But you never ever ask for help
The more I try to be your friend
The more you make me go through hell

Don’t take me down with your riptide,
With your undertow
‘Cos if you can’t pull up out of the nosedive
Then I’ve got to go
You’re the lesson I must learn
I won’t watch you crash and burn

You’re caught up in the web that you’ve spun
Using lies to get everything done
Do you really wonder why you’re so alone?
Every day playing a role
Always knowing what to say
Nobody really knows you,
Least of all yourself

Don’t take me down with your riptide,
With your undertow
‘Cos if you can’t pull up out of the nosedive
Then I’ve got to go
You’re the lesson I must learn
I won’t watch you crash and burn
Crash and burn

Don’t take me down with your riptide,
With your undertow
And if you can’t pull up out of the nosedive
Then I’ve got to go
You’re the lesson I must learn
I won’t watch you crash and burn
I won’t watch you crash and burn
I won’t watch you crash and burn
