Burned out Heart

Original Version

My love is like a jet black high speed train
Going nowhere then coming back again
I wish I could, I’d love to touch
Her perfect golden tan
Got a burned out heart
But I deal with it the best I can

And where I come from you use small words
In quiet silence everything gets heard
Oh man, I’d really like to scream out loud, he-hey
I know you’ll understand
Got a burned out heart
And I deal with it the best I can

Floating in a dream
Floating in a dream

I wish I could, I’d love to touch
Her perfect golden tan
Got a burned out heart
But I deal with it the best I can
