My Sunday Song – “Watch the Fire” by W.E.T.

For My Sunday Song #288, we are going to tackle another song from the band W.E.T. This time around we are going to discuss “Watch the Fire” which is the opening track off their 2018 album ‘Earthrage’. If you remember from the earlier post, W.E.T. is comprised of Robert Sall of the band Work of Art, Erik Martensson of the band Eclispse and Jeff Scott Soto from the band Talisman. Take the first initial of each band and you have W.E.T. It also has 2 other members Magnus Henriksson and Robban Back. All are on the label Frontiers Records who brought the super group together. 

The song was written by Johan Becker, Miqael Persson and Erik Martensson. It is a dark song in that the person the song is about has been burned bad by either a girlfriend or it could be anyone as it doesn’t really delve into the who or what actually happened. All we know is the person has been deceived, lied to and hurt this person badly. The person is angry and telling those that hurt him that their day will come. Karma will catch up and when it does, he will be there to watch the fire and watch them burn. Doesn’t sound like he will throw any water on them to help them out, just gladly watch them burn. I would say he is pissed.

Musically, it is a hard, melodic rock song and what I love about it is that the vocals are shared with Erik and Jeff whose voices compliment each other so well. It is a catchy chorus and and when you hear Soto you instantly connect and find yourself singing along instantly. The guitars are crunchy, the keyboards give it an even more melodic feel and the drums pound throughout. It is a modern rock song that is drenched in the old 80’s sound and I feel this could’ve been huge back in the day. Soto’s vocals are always on point with W.E.T. and I love the range he shows and how smooth his vocals can be. They are enticing and downright amazing in my book. One of my favorite groups he has been in as they are all so talented and the music is melodic which is what I love.

Give the song a listen and let me know what you think. Aren’t those harmonies between Erik and Jeff awesome. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful and Happy Sunday!!

Watch the Fire”

So it came down to this
I’ve been betrayed by a Judas kiss
I hope the prise was right
And the silver dollar makes you sleep good at night

How could I’ve been so blind
I didn’t see it sneak up behind
Was almost paralyzed
I believed every word, every single lie

Then I woke up
Up in an instant
Karma’s bitch
And will get you good

You know one day you’re gonna pay for every single hurt
One day you’re gonna burn when the tables turn
And I will be there
Watch the fire, fire, fire, burn
One day you’re gonna beg on your broken knees
One day you’re gonna face all your enemies
And I will be there
Watch the fire, fire, fire, burn

The king has lost his crown
Wolves at the door and you’re going down

No where to run and hide
No one’s there, no one cares
I’ll be by your side

Then I woke up
Up in an instant
Karma’s bitch
And will get you good

You know one you’re gonna pay for every single hurt
One day you’re gonna burn when the tables turn
And I will be there
Watch the fire, fire, fire, burn
One day you’re gonna beg on your broken knees
One day you’re gonna face all your enemies
And I will be there
Watch the fire, fire, fire, burn

I will be waiting for the moment
When you get what you deserve
For every action there’s reaction

You know one they you’re gonna pay for every single hurt
One day you’re gonna burn when the tables turn
And I will be there
Watch the fire, fire, fire, burn
One day you’re gonna beg on your broken knees
One day you’re gonna face all your enemies
And I will be there
Watch the fire, fire, fire, burn

Written by Johan Becker, Miqael Persson and Erik Martensson
