David Michael Schmidt — You Burned Me lyrics

You Burned Me

You burned me bad and let me die
I gave it all and bared my soul
My honest heart just could not lie

I showed it all and kept it true
I wrote the words in dripping blood
My open book was meant for you

Chorus:
Then you burned me and let me die
And cast my ashes to the winds
Now no more tears are left to cry

You flamed the heat and stoked the fire
Then stacked more wood upon the pile
You made the best tall funeral pyre

I thought this time the I’d found the one
Then reach inside the open drawer
This shaking hand can’t load the gun

Chorus:
Then you burned me and let me die
And cast my ashes to the winds
Now no more tears are left to cry

Lonely hearts are white and thin
Without a pulse or rhythmic beat
There is no life that’s left within

A hollow shell can’t feel the bed
I lie and stare at ceiling lines
And pray to god that I was dead

Chorus:
Then you burned me and let me die
And cast my ashes to the winds
Now no more tears are left to cry
