  • I see your face on every street, every corner, couple trees
    Even got her name on 'em
    I feel your love, I hear your laugh, got them take me way on back
    Hurt me memories, I don't want 'em
    Up and down the boulevard
    In and out of every bar

    I'd burn this whole town down
    Pick a spot, dig a hole, put them ashes in the ground
    Baby, I'd burn this whole town down
    If it wasn't for my momma's house, my momma's house
    Damn girl, why'd you have to break it like that
    Leaving pieces of my shattered heart scattered like glass
    I'd burn this whole town down
    If it wasn't for my momma's house, my momma's house

    I would start it where we started, at the downtown party
    Where you kissed my lips and stole my beer
    The city park in the dark where we looked up at the stars
    Watched them fireworks pop last year
    It started under that Texaco sign where you said goodbye
    I'd get some gas and drop a match right there

    I'd burn this whole town down
    Pick a spot, dig a hole, put them ashes in the ground
    Baby, I'd burn this whole town down
    If it wasn't for my momma's house, my momma's house
    Damn girl, why'd you have to break it like that
    Leaving pieces of my shattered heart scattered like glass
    I'd burn this whole town down
    If it wasn't for my momma's house, my momma's house

    Fire red flames, sunsets in the sky
    Going out, staying in, staying up long nights
    Now I'm waking up alone, wishing I could move on
    Blocked your number in my phone, thought it help but it don't

    I'd burn this whole town down
    Pick a spot, dig a hole, put them ashes in the ground
    Baby, I'd burn this whole town down
    If it wasn't for my momma's house, my momma's house
    Damn girl, why'd you have to break it like that
    Leaving pieces of my shattered heart scattered like glass
    I'd burn this whole town down
    If it wasn't for my momma's house, my momma's house
