We made love until we cried
And cried ourselves to laughter
Laughed until we realize our hearts were struck with fear
How in just a moments time
Could one see forever after
I gently lie beside of you
And dream away with 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 you throw your head back when swallowing pills
Funny things you learn from your papa
Like when you're talking you just can't keep your hands still
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 you could help me out with my dependency
'Cause I'm hopelessly
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
