Read some Kerouac and it put me on the tracks
To burn a little brighter now
Somethin' about Roman candles fizzin' out
Shine a little light on me now
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, burn a little brighter now, yea

Doctor says my liver looks like leavin' with my lover
Need another time out now
Like any sort of hero turnin' down to zero
Standin' out in any crowd
Pullin' seventeen with experience and dreams
Sweatin' out a happy hour
When you're hidin' twenty nine you know it ain't a crime
To burn a little brighter now
Burn a little brighter now, burn a little brighter now
Burn a little brighter now and burn a little brighter now

{My advice is if you maintain this lifestyle you won't reach thirty
Christ, and it's a romantic way to go really, it's part of the heritage
Should I leave?}

We burn a little brighter now, yea
Read some Kerouac and it put me on the tracks
To burn a little brighter now
It was somethin' about Roman candles fizzin' out
Shine a little light on me now
Found a strange fascination with a liquid fixation
Alcohol thrill me now
Getting late in the game to show any pride or shame
Burn a little brighter now, we burn a little brighter now, yea
Burn a little brighter now, we burn a little brighter now
