Blew Up
Jonny Lang Lyrics


Alright

Listen, I looked around saw nothing but my soul missing
So I hit the switch took out everything but the kitchen.
Like a couple of fish flopping down on the floor
Wait a minute, engines and sirens all up in a roar
Fire chief said son, what you want to do this for?

I am sorry sir I just can't take it no more
(Yeah)
You wouldn't have liked the man I was before

So I blew up the house
Gonna let it burn (alright)
Gonna let it burn (ooohhh)
Gonna let it burn down
Baby, I blew up the house
Just to watch it burn
(Just to watch it burn)
Gonna let it burn down (alright)
Let it burn down (wooo)

Listen
Now they check your pulse just to see if you can still breathe
I was barely alive apparently for no good reason
All this before I had been thinking the same way
Sometimes it's better just to start again

So I blew up the house
Gonna let it burn
(Gonna let it burn)
Gonna let it burn
(Gonna let it burn)
Gonna let it burn down
Baby, I blew up the house
Just to watch it burn
(Just to watch it burn)
Gonna let it burn down (alright)
Let it burn down

And it might take a while
I gotta give it up
But I'm gonna give it up
I gotta let that man go
Gonna let it burn down
Baby I blew up the house yeah
Just to watch it burn
Gonna watch it burn
Let it burn down

I know I aint your kind of crazy
I'm so sorry baby
If I had a chance, I'd do it again
Yeeeaaahhh

Yeah, I blew up the house
Gonna let it burn
(Gonna let it burn)
Gonna let it burn
(Gonna let it burn)
Gonna let it burn down

Yeah, I blew up the house
Just to watch it burn
(Just to watch it burn)
Gonna let it burn down
Let it burn down

Otta give it up (I had to watch my memories go up in a puff of smoke)
But I'm gonna give it up
I gotta let that man go (they might think I'm crazy)
Gonna let it burn down
Baby I blew up the house yeah
Just to watch it burn
Gonna let it burn
Let it burn down

Just to watch it burn
Gonna watch it burn
Let it burn down

Gonna let it burn
Gonna let it burn
Gonna let it burn down
Just to watch it burn
(Just to watch it burn)
Gonna let it burn down

Just to watch it burn (gotta start my life over)
Gonna let it burn
Just to let it burn down
Gonna let it burn down

(I'm a little crazy but I'm willing to take that chance)
Just to watch it burn
(Just to watch it burn)
Let it burn down

This song got me thru a really bad patch and I played it over and over until I blew up the house and all the bad memories of mistakes made! I just walked away smiling as I blew out the match and never looked back !
