  • She got on a plane
    Took off town bound for Santa Fe
    Touched down on the edge of another world
    Made a few mistakes
    And it's kind of hard to fuck the pain away
    Hooked on amphetamine and pearls

    Hey she drove off into the sunset
    Drinkin’ pinot, singin’ ‘Livin on a Prayer’
    Hey when all her childhood dreams get put to rest
    Maybe in another life she'll get somewhere
    But in the end we all burn out like cigarettes

    Captain on the team
    Quarterback on the varsity
    Crowd goes wild he throws a touchdown
    But graduation came he lost his number but he kept his name now he’s
    Pumpin’ gas at the Texaco downtown

    Hey he drove off into the sunset drinking Bud Light singin ‘Livin on a Prayer'
    Hey when all his childhood dreams get put to rest
    Maybe in another life he'll get somewhere
    But in the end we all burn out like cigarettes

    Now I’m singing a song for you
    About a childhood dream that won't come true
    But I’m somewhere out in the Midwest chasin’ mine
    So if you're feelin’ blue
    I’ll light up a match for you
    And we'll send the world up in smoke tonight

    Hey we’ll drive off into the sunset drinkin’ whiskey singin’ ‘Livin’ on a Prayer
    Hey when all of our childhood dreams get put to rest
    Maybe in another life we'll get somewhere
    But in the end we all burn out like cigarettes
    In the end we all burn out like cigarettes
    In the end we all burn out like a cigarette Writer/s: Brandon Lowry, Spencer Thomas Lee
