Slow Burn
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 2-5-2017

I'm older than my father was, on the day he left this Earth
And I'm younger than I'll ever be, but I'm not sure what that's worth
There are, many things I'm conscience of, but I still don't understand
But life without a legacy is like a sailor on dry land, who's in command

--- Chorus ---
I can face the fight, I can race the night, I can chase the light
I shall return, Na Na Na, Na Na Na
But I'd better think twice, if I roll the dice, Can I pay the price
It's not black, it's not white, it's not day, it's not night, it's not love at first sight
It's a slow ~~burn

It's hard to be a songwriter, in a town that's full of ghosts
Where all the words are taken, all the rhymes have been exposed
It's hardly worth explaining, that's there's nothing left to say
I might try again tomorrow, but I'm giving up today, anchors away

-Repeat Chorus-
-Instrumental Chorus-

No one can ever get out
I never had any doubt
It works within and without
-Repeat Chorus-

No strings attached, I shall return
Three on a match, it's a slow~~burn
