lyrics

"Jessica"

I was told that you was never coming back
ever since your mamas cancer and your daddies heart attack
must have been damn near 5 years ago
those wounds have healed by now
you got them long sleeves to cover your scars i'm sure

and yes we're all dying slowly
poisoned and worse
so lets make like roman candles in the night
and get lit up before we burst

well i used to run to jessica's house with not a dime in my hand
run 17 miles from my front porch and her daddy just didn't understand
when i turned 16 i'd steal my brothers car and drive jessica down to the badlands
we'd spend the night smoking cigarettes and watching the stars
yeah she made me feel just like a real man

and yes we're all dying slowly
poisoned and worse
so lets make like roman candles in the night
and get lit up before we burst

I was told that you was never coming back
ever since your mamas cancer and your daddies heart attack
must have been damn near 5 years ago
those wounds have healed by now
you got them long sleeves to cover your scars i'm sure
and you got that baby girl
with whom your hand in hand
you're telling me i'm the daddy
hell yeah i understand
with all those crazy nights
that i'd steal my brothers car
no wonder your grandparents took you away
we damn near killed your parents that's sure

and yes we're all dying slowly
poisoned and worse
so lets make like roman candles in the night
and get lit up before we burst
