And the truth no longer matters to me
There was a time when it could have set us free
But this life that I've chosen to lead
Makes me more outstanding if I continue to bleed

So I will burn
Stare at the sun, pretend I'm a god
With a coke and arum, drink myself silly
As everyone runs
For some reason, they feel sorry for me

Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away
Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away

Life is good and it's only getting better
Move out west
My dreams could come together
Thank my friends
For all the get togethers
For some reason, they feel sorry for me

Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away
Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away

Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away
Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away

You are the drink that slurred my
That slurred my speech
Let's be honest
Let's be true
Let me be me
And I'll let you be you

Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away
Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away

Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away
Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away

Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away
Baby, burn, burn, burn
Burn bright but burn far away
