Lyrics


Somebody turn down the noise
Do it, do it, do it for me
It's been such a long long day
I got another one ahead of me

Riffing on Roberta Flack
Listening to one hand clap
Killing myself to live
We never lose we never win

We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
Meet me in the middle

Teacher tells me what to do
Teacher tells me what to say
I could use a little help from you
You're gonna give it anyway

We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
Meet me in the middle

Lying in a pool of wax 
Fingering the cool cool grass 
Lying in a pool of wax 
Fingering the cool cool grass 

Fifty acorn in a sack
Looking for a place to crash
It's been such a long long day
I got another one ahead of me

We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
Meet me in the middle

We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
We burn at both ends
Meet me in the middle

Meet me in the middle
