  • I've been burning bright
    For so long I can't remember
    Pretty girls and late night bars seem to be my line of work
    Believe me when I say, I can't stay this high forever
    This man's had all he can stand, time to lay this body down

    Sweet Annie
    Can I stay with you a while
    'Cause this road's been putting miles on my heart
    Sweetheart I've been livin' in a fantasy
    But one day lightning will strike
    And my bark will lose its bite
    But don't give up on me
    Sweet (sweet) Annie

    Sweet Annie
    I know I promised you a life
    But with an empty bed and the words I said don't carry any weight
    If I could take back yesterday, find a way to start it over
    I'd turn around, put that bottle down and I'd pray it's not too late

    Sweet Annie
    Can I stay with you a while
    'Cause this road's been putting miles on my heart
    Sweetheart I've been livin' in a fantasy
    But one day lightning will strike
    And my bark will lose its bite
    But don't give up on me
    What will be will be
    Sweet (sweet) Annie

    Turn out the lights
    These hands they long to hold you
    Fall all over you
    All over again
    Come a little closer so I can show you
    My heart still beats fast for you
    All over, and over again

    Sweet Annie
    Can I stay with you a while
    'Cause this road's been putting miles on my heart
    Sweetheart I've been livin' in a fantasy
    But one day lightning will strike
    And my bark will lose its bite
    But don't give up on me
