Burn To Shine Lyrics

by Ben Harper

We made love until we cried and cried ourselves to laughter
Laughed until we realize our hearts were struck with fear
How in just a moments time could one see forever after?
I gently lie beside you and dream away my tears

Won't you let me treat you kind?
We're gonna burn to shine
Won't you let me treat you kind?
We're gonna burn to shine

Funny things you learn from your mama
Like the way to throw your head back when your swallowing pills
Funny things you learn from your papa
Like when you're talking you just can't keep your hands still

But that was now and this is then
It never lasts for long
How I miss the good old days
But I'm so glad they're gone

Won't you let me treat you kind?
We're gonna burn to shine
Won't you let me treat you kind?
We're gonna burn to shine

I'd like to spend the time with you, would you like to spend with me?
So that you could help me out with my dependency
'Cause I'm hopelessly addicted, addicted to your sorrow
Makes me never wanna work, beg or borrow

Won't you let me treat you kind?
We're gonna burn to shine
Won't you let me treat you kind?
We're gonna burn to shine

Won't you let me treat you kind?
We're gonna burn to shine
Won't you let me treat you kind?
We're gonna burn to shine
