Burn

I started too young, I started too soon

Now it's too late, there's nothin' I can do

I wanted to hide the numb and feel the hurt

That's the first time that I felt the burn

Good whiskey will start it fast

But it's a fire that just won't last

The burn will come to pass

So I pour myself another glass

Somethin bout that burn I just can't shake

Hurts a little more with every drink I take

Works a little less with every glass I have

But I'll have one more, 'cause I want this burn to last

There's a pack of reds in my truck

My cousins Navy lighter for luck

The burn fades as soon as it's lit

So I light up one more cigarette

Somethin bout that burn I just can't shake

Hurts a little more with every drag I take

Works a little less with every smoke I have

But I'll have one more, cause I want this burn to last

I'd rather hurt than be numb inside

The burn lets me know that I'm alive

I know I should quit, I've done it before

And I'll do it again, after just one more
