“Kerosene” Lyrics

I’m waitin’ on the sun to set ’cause yesterday ain’t over yetI started smoking cigarettes there’s nothing else to do I guessDusty roads ain’t made for walking, spinning tires ain’t made for stoppin’I’m giving up on love ’cause love’s given up on me

I gave it everything I had and everything I got was badLife ain’t hard but it’s too long to live it like some country songTrade the truth in for a lie, cheating really ain’t a crimeI’m giving up on love ’cause love’s given up on me

Forget your high society, I’m soakin’ it in keroseneLight ’em up and watch them burn, teach them what they need to learn, ha!Dirty hands ain’t made for shakin’, ain’t a rule that ain’t worth breakin’Well I’m giving up on love ’cause love’s given up on me

Now I don’t hate the one who leftYou can’t hate someone who’s deadHe’s out there holding on to someone, I’m holding up my smoking gunI’ll find somewhere to lay my blame the day she changes her last nameWell I’m giving up on love ’cause love’s given up on meWell I’m giving up on love, hey, love’s given up on me
