lyrics

If I burn out at this pace. Bury me in my guitar case

Pick up that case boy, carry it around

Take it with ya from town to town

Strum my corpse at the local dive cuz I wanna keep playing music

Even when I'm not alive

But if I burn to ash toss me in the air

Let the winds carry me everywhere

You'll all inhale my dust into your lungs

Leaving my taste all over your tongues

And whenever you people shout

It'll be me that you'll all be spitting out

But if I burn up in the sky

Let me explode like the 4th of July

Burst into color everywhere

While children gaze up and stare

Though I'll fizzle into the night

For one flash there'll be nothing as beautifully bright

Some nights I think about the stars

How we all see the same ones no matter where we are

Their light shines on long after they've died

Even in this city where they pretend to hide

I hope my light doesn't disappear
