Burning lyrics

[Intro]
I've been burning
Yes, I've been burning
Such a burden
This flame on my chest
No insurance to pay for the damage
Yeah, I've been burning up since you left

[Verse 1]
I've been smoking, oh
More than twenty a day
Blame it on rebellion
Don't blame it on me
Wish I was younger
Back to the nineteenth of May
I had an open mind
Swore to never change

[Pre-Chorus]
Funny how time goes by
Had respect for myself
That river ran dry
You reached a limit
I wasn't enough
It's like the fire replaced all the love

[Chorus]
I've been burning
Yes, I've been burning
Such a burden
This flame on my chest
No insurance to pay for the damage
Yeah, I've been burning up since you left

[Verse 2]
Oh, have you ever called
I will burst straight back
Give you my forgiveness
And the shirt off my back
No friends to turn to
Yeah, I messed up that
Wish we could smoke again
Just for a day, oh

[Pre-Chorus]
Funny how time goes by
Had respect for myself
That river ran dry
You reached a limit
I wasn't enough
And it's like the fire replaced all the love

[Chorus]
I've been burning
Yes, I've been burning
Such a burden
This flame on my chest
No insurance to pay for the damage
Yeah, I've been burning up since you left

[Outro]
Yeah, I've been burning up since you left
Oh, I've been burning up since you left
