From writing music for Miley Cyrus, to becoming untamed herself, Cam is on the rise in the music world. Being a little girl being inspired by your grandparents country music, can make dreams become a reality. Cam writes music directly from her heart. Her music reflects her life. Her music reflects the life of others.
Her song “Burning House” featured on the album “Untamed”, uses imagery of a literal burning house to symbolize a dying relationship. Peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot, the song is that good.
Lyrically speaking, the song begins by saying, ” I had a dream about a burning house. You were stuck inside I couldn’t get you out. I laid beside you and pulled you close and the two of us went up in smoke. Love isn’t all that it seems. I did you wrong. I’ll stay here until this dream is gone.” Planning to go to a party that her ex was attending and planning out how to apologize about it the next day is what sparked this dream. The dream about her rushing into a burning home only to find them both going up into the smoke.
It continues on to the chorus saying,” I’ve been sleepwalking been wandering all night. Trying to take what’s lost and broken; make it right. Cam is wanting to repair this “burning relationship.”
Verse two goes on to say,” See you at a party and you look the same. I could take you back, but people never change. Wish that we could go back in time, I’d be the one you thought you’d find. Love isn’t all that it seems. I did you wrong. I’ll stay here with you until this dream is gone.” Cam is realistically thinking here about change. Good change, bad change, or if people are able to change at all. That questions their relationship and what it was built on. That questions their past, present, and future. Was it really love or love based on false impressions?
As you can tell , this song is a deep a love story. Maybe not so much of a good one though. It gives you feeling and makes you question reality. What other way could you express you feelings better, other than in music? Whether you are writing it or singing it, music is there. Cam does just that. Expressing her deep inner feeling through music.
