Be A Burnout

from by Loner Chic

lyrics

I was five when it all came to pass:
I caught my eye on a pretty kid with her hair tied in class
and when she let it down, cast across the room
I swear I could see her begin to bloom
I never forgave myself
I never forgave myself for staring

I was fifteen when the disease entered me
Charted up its progress in a letter
She told her mom, who told her therapist, who told my parents
and I never forgave her
I never forgave her for snitching

Where does it go when you lose control?
I can’t wait to see where it leads—
Can’t wait to see you be a burnout, baby
Can’t wait to see you lying on the floor
Can’t wait to see you be a burnout, baby
and not love you anymore

Closing shop, everybody’s off the clock
College/townie dusk
It’s a perfect year for a summer fling—
we’re gonna write another record and I’m gonna sing
But I will never go back
No, I won’t go back to that subject

‘cause I watched it go when I lost control
I can’t wait to see where it leads
Can’t wait to see you be a burnout, baby
Can’t wait to see you lying on the floor
Can’t wait to see you be a burnout, baby
and not love you anymore
and not love you anymore
