I'm all washed out by the side of the road Broken bones Matilda left a note and a rose Sayin', "Baby honey child, I've loved you so long But you deserve much better than me." So I'm just burnin' all around all the miles in the road And I'm never goin' back and I'm never goin' home I've been gone too long, I've been less right than wrong I lost so much blood in the fallin' out And I lit a fire that wouldn't go out Until it consumed the walls and roof of this house Until all I remember was burnin' away And all I remember, you burned it away See, for ten long years I've been hustlin' around Tryin' to wash the sins and the sweat from my brow Just tryin' to find a better life for me and my own Just some rest for these tired workin' fingers But nobody never gonna tell you the way You gotta figure it out boys and suffer the rain And the fools in the night and the heat of the day When all you ever really wanted was for someone to understand And I lit a fire that wouldn't go out Until it consumed the walls and roof of this house Until all I remember was burnin' away And all I remember, you burned it away Well, don't you take it so hard and baby, don't you cry You cross your hard heart and you hope to die Don't you tell me no more lies, you lied all the time Don't you tell me no more lies, you lied every night And you're sugar and spice and everything nice You got Monroe hips, your poisoned lips and knives And you're sugar and spice and everything nice You got open wounds in a young boy's pride And you're sugar and spice and everything nice You got Monroe hips, your poisoned lips and knives Sugar and spice, everything nice Open wounds in a young boy's pride And I lit a fire that wouldn't go out Until it consumed the walls and roof of this house Until all I remember was burnin' away And all that you left me, you burned it away Well, don't you take it so hard and baby, don't you cry You cross your hard heart and you hope to die Don't you tell me no more lies, you lied all the time Don't you tell me no more lies, you lied every night Time, time tickin' away Time, time tickin' away Time, time tickin' away Time, time tickin' away
