Burn One Down Lyrics

by Clint Black

I guess you're off to have your fun
Another ending just begun
And I know what I don't see
Really should'nt bother me
So go and have yourself a ball
You'll be at no one's beck and call
With that fire in your eyes
Another lover's moon will rise
Someone else will take the fall

And that's just the way you are
And I've known all along
Some candles always burn
Even when the night is gone
But the strongest of flames
They won't burn eternally
So when you find another friend
Who'll light your candle up again
You can burn one down for me

So you don't matter anymore
I'll convince myself, I'm sure
As if I give a damn
Oh, that's just the way I am
So go on and pour yourself some wine
Who'll ever spend your time
'Cause anyone can see
You won't be crying over me
And you never were that kind

Lord, that's just the way you are
And I've known all along
Some candles always burn
Even when the night is gone
But the strongest of flames
They won't burn eternally
So when you find another friend
Who'll light your candle up again
You can burn one down for me

Mmm, mmm
Ahh, ahh
Mmm, mmm

The strongest of flames
They won't burn eternally
So when you find another friend
Who'll light your candle up again
You can burn one down for me
They won't find another candle
Light your candle up again
You can burn one down for me
