BIF

Busted shoulder, busted fingers busted wrist and a busted voice but I’m still playin this damn guitar and singin my songs,

I shined bright now I’m just fading away, somedays I can barely walk, some days I can barely talk,

burn out quick and fade away slow.

most days I’m living in a haze yeah, I had one Hell of a life but I aint gonna die easy I’ll just sit here and fade away,

burn out quick and fade away slow.

Lost my heart, lost my soul along the way, lost what was left of my mind out on this road but that aint crazy, insane is I’d do it all over the same,

burn out quick and fade away slow.

when I was born the levee broke and that dirty water washed over me, bathed, and baptized in the fire,

burn out quick and fade away slow.

I gave it all I had now I’m givin all I got left to a half-remembered life and a pack of cigs I’m tryin to quit,

burn out quick and fade away slow.

Now I’m standin out in the pouring rain all I feel is pain in my bones, all I can see is a sign that reads welcome to Hell it’s just a state of mind I’d rather not be but except cause that’s the price you pay to burn out quick and fade away slow.
