Fish – Torch Song lyrics

Read some kerouac and it put me on the track
To burn a little brighter now.
It was something about roman candles fizzin' out,
Shine a little light on me now,
I 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

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

(spoken - doctor:) "and my advice is if you maintain this lifestyle you won't reach thirty"
(torch:) "it's a kind of romantic way to go really, part of the heritage.
It's your round i'n'it? "

We burn a little brighter now
Read some kerouac and it put me on the track to burn a little brighter now
It was something about roman candles fizzin' out,
Shine a little light on me now,
I found a strange fascination with a liquid fixation,
Alcohol thrill me now
Getting late in the game to show any pride or shame
We burn a little brighter now, burn a little brighter now
