Mark McKinney – Bonfire lyrics

Well, I can try ten where we went wrong
I'm sure that it would make a great country song
But I wouldn't want to have to re-hash it
Every time I sang along
Well, I been drinkin' every night
To numb my pain
Some would say it a hundred proof
Could fuel a flame
You strike a match
And your thoughts will ignite
It's the way you dumped me
Well, it's just like rot

Chorus:
(I'm gonna) (You gotta) light a bonfire
Burn it to the ground
Stack it high with bad memories
(And) (Then) all the things that let 'ya down
You gotta light a bonfire
Burn it to the ground
Let 'em go all those broken dreams
And the nightmare'll be hell-bound
(All right)

Lord, 'ya know I loved you
But I still got burned
You never see it comin'
That's a lesson I learned
It could blind-side 'ya so damn quick
Hits 'ya like a ton 'a bricks
Well, I finally figured out
You just let it go
Like ashes in the wind
You just let 'em blow
You torch those mem'ries
You know what I mean
Think of your lighter and some mental gasoline

(I'm gonna) (You gotta) light a bonfire
Burn it to the ground
Stack it high with bad memories
(And) (Then) all the things that let 'ya down
You gotta light a bonfire
Burn it to the ground
Let 'em go all those broken dreams
And the nightmare'll be hell-bound
(All right)

Let fire in your mind
Burn hot as the sun
Take a couple shots of whiskey
Hell! Just for fun
One more thing:
Yeah! I'm talking some trash
Before I torch your memory
Well, kiss my...

You gotta light a bonfire
Burn it to the ground
Stack it high with bad memories
Then all the things that let 'ya down
You gotta light a bonfire
Burn it to the ground
Let 'em go all those broken dreams
And the nightmare'll be hell-bound
