Lyrics

I buried my heart, my burning heart
Down in the cold Kentucky ground
I prayed that the clay would suffocate my yearning
And stop me from longing for you

Why do I always fall for your strawberry smile
When I know that it does me no good
You spin me around in your perfumed gown
You cast all my bearings to the wind

I'm out of my mind
You're just killing time
I can't come down
You're messing around

I've tried the bottle, tried the bed
Just can't get you out of my head
Even trying makes me look like a fool
And the cold Kentucky clay
Has caught fire, it's burning
It'll burn for a thousand years or more
I'll look for comfort on some rocky foreign shore
