When We Burned

When We Burned

By Ray Weaver and Michael Skotte

Right from the start we were wrong for each other
But hearts beating fast for a new lover
Rarely have time to stop and listen to reason
Back road nights, living out loud
We laughed when they told us we ought to slow down
We became the only thing that we believed in
When we burned

Like a Carolina sky on the Fourth of July
We raged out of control
Like a goodbye tear in a lovers eye
You left a sweet scar on my soul
Back when love was young and wild, we learned
When we burned
The way my heart remembers you best,
is sittin’ on my tailgate in a summer dress
With nothin’ on underneath but your perfect skin
Your head on my chest, my hands on your hips
The taste of summer wine on your lips
I’d give anything if we could go back there again
When we burned

Like a Carolina sky on the Fourth of July
We raged out of control
Like a goodbye tear in a lovers eye
You left a sweet scar on my soul
Back when love was young and wild, we learned
When we burned

We burned each other 'til we both disappeared like smoke on the Dixie wind,
I swear some nights I still can feel your hot breath on my skin

Like a Carolina sky on the Fourth of July
We raged out of control
Like a goodbye tear in a lovers eye
You left a sweet scar on my soul
I won't say I'm wiser from the lessons learned
When we burned
