Burn The Candle At Both Ends



There's a cable line overhead stretches out like rolls of thread

Ground up beans and your coffee white  soon you'll travel through the night

Something's calling you right away no confusion no delay

Pack your case and you love your friends burn the candle at both ends


Hold on to me I want you to see

Hold on to me I want you to see


Weaves of calico on the chair all the colours of the fair

There's no cover no sleight of hand no more telling no more plans

All the children come out and play all those years on sunny days

Stolen kiss and you realize that all the girls love all the guys


Hold on to me I want you to see

Hold on to me I want you to see


Voices gossiping in the rain let them talk  they're all the same

Pull the latch out and  close the door keep your council don't say more

Time is close and I know you can before you leave me take my hand

It won't be long till your on the plane there's a fire in her veins


Hold on to me I want you to see

Hold on to me I want you to see

There's not a dream for all you can be

There's a cable line overhead stretches out like rolls of thread

Pack your case and you love your friends burn the candle at both ends
