Burn Bright

(Kirsten Williams)

It’s three in the morning and everyone I know is long fast asleep and at home 

Except you of course who’s on night owl patrol with a wander lust in your soul

 

You’re the first to admit it, you can’t help but fidget when nighttime comes creeping round

And if I was near you I might try to steer you away from that cliff where you’re bound

 

But you’re gonna do what you’re gonna do   

 

You just want to burn bright 

I know you want to burn bright

There’s a fire in you, I believe

I wish the world could see 

 

A freight train keeps rollin’ inside of your thoughts as you’re drivin’ slowly through town

Stoppin’ in bars for whiskey shots, tryin’ to drink your troubles down

 

And I ain’t one tell you about the hell that you’ve been through, I’ve seen your scars for myself

You’re still here living cause you made that decision if not for anything else

 

But you’re gonna go where you’re gonna go 

 

You just want to burn bright 

I know you want to burn bright

There’s a fire in you I believe 

I wish the world could see 

 

You get restless  

You go ramblin’ 

Just aching for something to prove

Not sure what the Lord put you here to do 

 

But you just want to burn bright 

I know you want to burn bright 

And just a spark could set you free 

Then all the world would see
