Burn Alone

Album: Hearts That Strain (2017)
  • You said we could take a break because it's stupid to fight
    I said I could hardly wait to see how long you could last
    You said you could not imagine all the pain that I've seen
    I said you don't understand the way you haunt my dreams

    I can take a tumble to the side of the road
    If you are the precious type you need to explode
    I can make it to the fire
    I can make my way home
    Don't you leave your light on
    And burn alone
    I can't burn alone
    I could burn alone

    If you are the Jesus with the cross to bear
    Early gets the heaven he ain't going nowhere
    Just like every steady seed has got a step on it's back
    There's nothing waiting for it at the end of the track

    I can take a tumble to the side of the road
    If you are the precious type you need to explode
    I can make it to the fire
    I can make my way home
    Don't you leave your light on
    I could burn alone
    I could burn alone

    We keep it light
    After such a night
    Crawling through the great unknown
    After what's been said
    Baby in my head
    I can feel it in my bones
    I can burn alone
    I can burn alone
    I can burn alone
    I can burn alone
