“Honey load up your questions
and pick up your sticks and your stones
and pretend I’m a shelter for heartaches
that don’t have a home
choose the words that cut like a razor
and all that I’ll say

Is fire away
take your best shot
show me what you got
honey, I’m not afraid
rear back and take aim
and fire away

Well, I wish I could say
that I’ve never been here before
but you know and I know
that I’ll always come back for more
your love might be my damnation
but I’ll cry to my grave

Fire away
take your best shot
show me what you got
honey, I’m not afraid
rear back and take aim
and fire away

Ah, fire away
take your best shot
show me what you got
honey, I’m not afraid
rear back and take aim
and fire away
fire away
ah fire away
fire away”.

Citazioni.

Fire Away is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton for his studio album Traveller (2015). It was written by Stapleton and Danny Green. The song’s accompanying music video was released on February 26, 2016. After listening to live renditions of “Fire Away“, Billboard writer Elias Leight opined the song features “dragging beat in a classic soul-ballad time signature,” while for Tad Dickens of The Roanoke Times, a “waltz-time”.
The music video concept for “Fire Away” was conceived by Stapleton and directed by Tim Mattia, starring Ben Foster and Margarita Levieva. The video follows a couple through courtship and marriage, going through exciting life moments such as buying a home and decorating it together. The happy memories soon fade, dissolving into struggle and, ultimately, tragedy, as it is evident that the woman is suffering from mental illness and tries multiple times to commit suicide. The video ends displaying the website for the Campaign to Change Direction. “Fire Away” visually depicts what the organization calls the Five Signs of suffering emotionally which includes change in personality, agitation, withdrawal, decline in personal care and hopelessness. Stapleton makes a cameo as a bartender. It won the award for Music Video of the Year at the 2016 Country Music Association Awards, and for Breakthrough Video of the Year at the 2016 CMT Music Awards. Reviewing the clip, Jon Freeman of Rolling Stone opined, “Though the video isn’t a literal interpretation of Stapleton’s lyrics, the video captures the song’s weary sadness and brings the doomed resilience of his narrator to life in Foster’s performance”. Jim Casey of Nash Country Daily concluded saying, “Through a heartbreaking conclusion, it shows just how serious mental health issues can be”.
