  • Woke up this morning about a quarter to five
    Said the prayer you'd taught me to keep myself alive
    It burned my tongue
    It burned my tongue

    Fried some grains in butter
    Said a simple grace
    Sat down at the table
    Fed my greedy face
    It burned my tongue
    It burned my tongue

    Looked out at the ocean
    I could see it so clear
    Said the only name
    I can ever stand to hear
    It burned my tongue
    It burned my tongue

    When i ask you to sing with me
    I wish you'd sing along
    Thirty years in this world --
    Thirty years too long
    It burns my tongue
    It burns my tongue

    You tooks away my friends
    You took my will to live
    I gave you all i got
    What more have i got to give?
    It burns my tongue
    It burns my tongue
    It burns my tongue
    It burns my tongue
