I'd burn for you
I'd burn for you

Like a lost freight train
A 747 with no pilot at the reins
Stay with me

Man, you can keep your fame
Jam it up a gear as I got to get away
What do I know? I'm 6 foot none
I got your silver bullets, where's your goddamn gun?

Girl, I can see your pain
Standing on the corner trying to shelter from the rain
Looking like you're interested so that people think you're sane
I think I know your name
Shit, we think the same

This is not a game I play discretely
Even if it does sound kind of creepy
I'll make sure you're tucked in when I leave you
So no one else can get to you

Like a drunk Mark Twain
Spitting out your venom with no fire in the flames
Stay with me

What do I know about pain?
Did you start to think this might be driving me insane?
Looking like you're innocent so that people think you're playing
Forget the early train
Shit, we think the same
This is not a game, this is not a game...

This is not a game I play discretely
Even if it does sound kind of creepy
I'll make sure you're tucked in when I leave you
So no one else can get to you
We can hear the rain come down secretly
Your looks got me kind of weak in the knees
I'd burn for you
I'd burn for you

Man, you can keep your change
I wouldn't spend it anyway
I wouldn't know where to start
Girl, I can see your pain
Girl, I can see your pain
I think I know your name
Shit, we think the same

This is not a game I play discretely
Even if it does sound kind of creepy
I'll make sure you're tucked in when I leave you
So no one else can get to you
We can hear the rain come down secretly
Your looks got me kind of weak in the knees
I'd burn for you
I'd burn for you

I'd burn for you
I'd burn for you
