Burn, Burn Burn

Album: yet to be titled (2022)
Play Video
  • Everyone seems a damn genius lately
    Tik-Tok talking, late-night TV
    And there's still so much that I have yet to know
    We get dressed up just to go downtown
    In some ego filled late night crowd
    It seems that's where I feel the most alone

    I'd like to get lost on some old back road
    Find a shade tree and a honey hole
    And talk to my grandpa again
    And I see God in everything, trees and pain and nights in spring
    So why do I still long for a home

    I'd like to lay in a field on a cozy blanket
    And feel the fear of never waking
    To know the true warmth of the sun
    I'd like to love my lady long and hard
    And lay down lines of laymen guitar
    And never leave loving arms again

    My exes hate me and my friends all miss me
    I wanna drown in rot gut whiskey
    And leave this small town for awhile
    Head to Paris on a late-night flight
    Find a bar and get in a fight
    Write a few poems on a sunny balcony

    I want to be a child climbing trees somewhere
    Breathing in the fresh, outside air
    Before I knew this life was unkind
    I want a well-trained dog on a couple acres
    A kind, kind lady and a place to take her
    And a few good friends I can count on one of my hands

    I know I'm bound to die one day, so when I reach those golden gates, I pray to say I did the best I can
    Sit with my mother and the dearly departed
    Send a prayer down to the broken-hearted
    Let em' know it all turns out just fine

    To know me is to love me and to hate me is to wrong me, I prefer my nights so lonely, I love blues guitar and muscle cars and gin
    I'm a simple man I don't need much just my simple songs and some human touch, I'm tired now so I'm bringing my ass home

    So let me go
    Down the line
    Let me feel it all
    Joy, pain, and sky
    Let me go
    Down the line
    We all burn, burn, burn
    Then die

    So let me go
    Down the line
    Let me feel it all
    Joy, pain, and sky
    Let me go
    Down the line
    We all burn, burn, burn
    Then die

    So let me go
    Down the line
    Let me feel it all
    Joy, pain, and sky
    Let me go
    Down the line
    We all burn, burn, burn
    Then die
