lyrics

Burning fields

I leave these burning fields behind
that my heart set on fire
In a way I miss you now
but it’s too late to turn around
The wind has changed from north to south 
bringing snowstorms to my grounds
in a way I miss you now
but I saw you wave goodbye
I saw you wave goodbye

I didn’t think it’d end so soon
but in a day the heat was gone
in a way I miss it now
with the smoke burning in my eyes
The key to freedom 
is the key to depravity it seems
in a way I miss you now
but it’s temporary

I am happy the way I am
I will never change my name for you
name for you
And all we had was too much time
and now time is running out for you
out for you 
out for you

Counting hours on my clock
counting time that I have lost
in a way I miss you now
but it’s life they say and I’m
Getting older by the day
and you are stuck on seventeen
in a way I miss you now
But it’s temporary

I am happy the way I am
I will never change my name for you
name for you
All we had was too much time
And now time is running out for you
Out for you out for you 

I’ll miss you I know I will
But the fields are burning
I’ll miss you I know I will
But my fields are burning
still
