Silver Spoon - Burning Both Ends lyrics


ad
It was picture perfect postcard day
when I followed her down the road,
a day to get to heaven, a day to drop your load
and as I walk down smiling on the street
I heard again the words she'd said to me:

You know I am burning, they say
it's better to burn out than it is to rust
so I am burning darling, away
the gravel and the dust,
I am burning both ends,
and if I don't last the day,
tell my friends of the light
when I was burning away

On such a really picture postcard day
we went the longest road,
thru places where we had lived,
thru places we had roamed
and when at last we got where we should be
I heard again the words she'd said to me:

And so I am burning, they say
it's better to burn out than to fade away
so I am burning darling, today,
and I know that it won't last,
I am burning both ends,
and as I may not last the day,
tell my friends of the light
when I was burning away

It was really a perfect postcard day
when she went down to her last home,
a perfect day to get some rest,
a day like seldom come
and as the ground was closing and she was set free
I heard again the words she'd said to me:

And now I am burning, they say
it's better to burn out than just disappear
I am burning darling, away
it's getting dark but I have no fear
I am burning both ends,
and as I won't last the day,
tell my friends of the flames
when I was burning away
