Ben Harper — Burn To Shine lyrics

We made love until we cried and cried ourselves to laughter
Laughed until we realise 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

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

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
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/ben-harper-burn-to-shine-lyrics.html ]
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

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

I'd like to spend the time that you would like to spend with me
So that you could help me out with my dependancy
'Cause I'm hoplessly addicted, addicted to your sorrow
Makes me never wanna work, beg or borrow

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
