Mama I know I told you that I'd be good

we both know I said I’d be lots of things I never could

you know I never meant to break no thing by lying

I just thought that i might never run out of time

now I’m marking every minute right down til the day I die

and before I go what I need you to know is I loved ya

now I’m dancin like the first flame in a fire

we burn amber and ember all through the night

I never was too scared to leave my mind behind

from what I cold take away you think I lost it all the time

and so I’ll write us a catchy chorus to sing to hell

because I learned you cant get nowhere without help

and when I make it down there I won’t sing by myself

but before I do what I need from you is your love

ain’t nothing out there worth finding if you cant

go out and find it for yourself

you may burn some bridges waking up out on park benches

maybe someone on the other side will have a story to tell when we all go to hell.
