Slow Burn
Kacey Musgraves Lyrics


Born in a hurry, always late
Haven't been early since '88
Texas is hot, I can be cold
Grandma cried when I pierced my nose
Good in a glass, good on green
Good when you're puttin' your hands all over me

I'm alright with a slow burn
Takin' my time, let the world turn
I'm gonna do it my way, it'll be alright
If we burn it down and it takes all night
It's a slow burn, yeah

In Tennessee, the sun's goin' down
But in Beijing, they're headin' out to work
You know the bar down the street don't close for an hour
We should take a walk and look at all the flowers

'Cause I'm alright with a slow burn
Takin' my time, let the world turn
I'm gonna do it my way, it'll be alright
If we burn it down and it takes all night
It's a slow burn

Mm, whatever feels good

Ah
Ah
Ah
Ah
Mm

Old soul, waitin' my turn
I know a few things, but I still got a lot to learn

So I'm alright with a slow burn
Slow burn
Slow burn
Mm, I'm alright with a slow burn

I Provide Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Born in a hurry, always late
Haven't been early since '88
Texas is hot, I can be cold
Grandma cried when I pierced my nose
Good in a glass, good on green
Good when you're putting your hands all over me

[Chorus]
I'm alright with a slow burn
Taking my time, let the world turn
I'm gonna do it my way, it'll be alright
If we burn it down and it takes all night
It's a slow burn, yeah

[Verse 2]
In Tennessee, the sun's goin' down
But in Beijing, they're heading out to work
You know the bar down the street don't close for an hour
We should take a walk and look at all the flowers

[Chorus]
'Cause I'm alright with a slow burn
Taking my time, let the world turn
I'm gonna do it my way, it'll be alright
If we burn it down and it takes all night
It's a slow burn

[Bridge]
Whatever feels good

[Outro]
Old soul, waiting my turn
I know a few things, but I still got a lot to learn
So I'm alright with a slow burn, slow burn, slow burn
I'm alright with a slow burn

She fulfills her responsibility as an artist with an innate gift: to find the esoteric words and music to say things that we want to say, but can't. For many of us we knew she was dialed in from the first note of this song, but when she sang,

"Old soul,
waiting my turn
I know a few things but I've still got a lot
To learn".

it floored us.
Thank you, Kacey. A lot of us understand it all a little bit better now. .

Every time I listen to one of her songs on her new album I think it’s my favourite, but then I realize that literally all the songs are my favourite. This song is so good.
