The Mountain Goats Burned My Tongue Lyrics

sponsored links

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
