When you walked away in the rain
At least a part of me though I'd see you again
When you turned and slapped me in the face
At least I had a hope that we would touch again

Better to burn out than to fade away...
Hadn't you heard that before, Cobain?
Better to burn out than to fade away...
Better to blow up than decay?

When you left here I was quite upset
I went out back to think and smoke just for a bit
The tip it burned away just like regret
The drag grew hot, and then I choked on it

Better to burn out than to fade away...
Hadn't you heard that before, Cobain?
Better to burn out than to fade away...
Better to blow up than decay?

When you walked away, in the rain
I heard a whimper and a bang
When you turned and slapped me in the face
I heard a whimper and a bang

Better to burn out than to fade away...
Hadn't you heard that before, Cobain?
Better to burn out than to fade away...
Better to blow up than decay?
