Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
We made love until we cried and cried ourselves to laughter
Laughed until we realize our hearts were struck were fear
How in just a moments time could one see for ever after
I gently lie beside of you and dream away my tears
Verse 2
Won't you let me treat you kind
We're gonna burn to shine
Won't you let me treat you kind
We're gonna burn to shine
Verse 3
Funny things you learn from your mama, like the way to throw your head back
When your swallowing pills
Funny things you learn from your papa, like when you're talking you just can't
Keep your hands still
Verse 4
But that was now and this is then
It never lasts for long
How I miss the good old days; but I'm so glad they're gone
Verse 5
Won't you let me treat you kind
We're gonna burn to shine
Won't you let me treat you kind
We're gonna burn to shine
Verse 6
I'd like to spend the time that you would like to spend with me
So that you could help me out with my dependency
Cause I'm hopelessly addicted, addicted to your sorrow
Makes me never wanna work, beg or borrow
Verse 7
Won't you let me treat you kind
We're gonna burn to shine
Won't you let me treat you kind
We're gonna burn to shine
