Torch Song
Read some Kerouac and it put me on the track

To burn a little brighter now.

It was something about roman candles fizzin' out,

Shine a little light on me now,

I found a strange fascination with a liquid fixation

Alcohol can thrill me now

It's getting late in the game to show any pride or shame

Burn a little brighter now



Doctor says my liver looks like leaving with my lover,

Need another time out now,

Like any sort of hero turnin' down to zero

Standing out in any crowd

Pulling seventeen with experience and dreams,

Sweating out a happy hour,

When you're hiding twenty nine you know it ain't a crime

To burn a little brighter now, burn a little brighter now



(Spoken - Doctor:)
