  • I've been burning, yes, I've been burning
    Such a burden, this flame on my chest
    No insurance to pay for the damage
    Yeah, I've been burning up since you left

    I've been smoking, oh
    More than twenty a day
    Blame it on rebellion
    Don't blame it on me
    Wish I was younger
    Back to the nineteenth of May
    I had an open mind
    Swore to never change

    Funny how time goes by
    Had respect for myself
    That river ran dry
    You reached the limit
    I wasn't enough
    It's like the fire replaced all the love

    I've been burning, yes, I've been burning
    Such a burden, this flame on my chest
    No insurance to pay for the damage
    Yeah, I've been burning up since you left

    Oh, have you ever called
    I will burst straight back
    Give you my forgiveness
    And the shirt off my back
    No friends to turn to
    Yeah, I messed up that
    Wish we could smoke again
    Just for a day, oh

    Funny how time goes by
    Had respect for myself
    That river ran dry
    You reached the limit
    I wasn't enough
    And it's like the fire replaced all the love

    I've been burning, yes, I've been burning
    Such a burden, this flame on my chest
    No insurance to pay for the damage
    Yeah, I've been burning up since you left

    Yeah, I've been burning up since you left
    Oh, I've been burning up since you left Writer/s: Dominic Jordan, Jason Boyd, Jimmy Giannos, Sam Smith
