All About The Burn

When I take a drink of bourbon
it hits me way down deep
like my brand new bed, it hurt me
in the place where she would sleep
though the times we had were troubled
and you’d think that I would learn
it was all about the burn

So I set myself to workin’
so I wouldn’t be alone
my broken heart was hurtin’
and that helped to set the tone
music is my mistress
she can be tough and taciturn
and she’s all about the burn

For so many months I suffered
then you kissed me on the lawn
now I wish in vain
that I could be what you want
my heart is heating up
as those familiar flames return
now it’s all about the burn
