The Yawpers — Burdens lyrics

Verse 1
Well I recall an endless summer
The worst I've ever had
Been huffing gasoline in my best friend's Trans Am
Life in this town ain't as easy as it seems
It eats up your heart and it spits away your dreams

Verse 2
I'd rather not think about it
You know it only brings me down
Been working scrubbing dishes at the diner way downtown
I'm saving up my money, going to take a Greyhound
My back is what is needed, and I'll never settle down

Chorus
Well come on baby, say the visions in my head
Another night in this town is turning my eyes red
And maybe my dreams turn to burdens instead
But I'm only 17, I'm headed for the sun
I'm getting out of here while I'm young enough to run

Verse 3
(?)
And the shadows when in flight
Make every breath a prayer, make every word a fight
You know every sign of failure, I know I'm sure I might
I'm 17 so please let's blow this town tonight

Chorus
Well come on baby, say the visions in my head
Another night in this town and I'll be the walking dead
And maybe my dreams turn to burdens instead
But I'm only 17, I'm headed for the sun
I'm getting out of here while I'm young enough to run!

Verse 4
You know it ain't all over till the angels take me home
And the only things that matter are the ones you do alone
My journey will be endless, my voice will shake your bones
Well at least I'll have a story when it's time to go home (?)

Chorus
Well come on baby, say the visions in my head
Another night in this town and I'll be the walking
And maybe my dreams turn to burdens instead
But I'm only 17, I'm looking for some fun
I'm getting out of here while I'm young enough to run!
