Verse 1
Don't you burn down Kelly's, Don't you burn down like I did/
All of those nights as I sat 'neath your lights and Collins ran thru my head/
Verse 2
And don't blame yourself for my ID/
honestly it kinda looked like me/
so I'd sit out the cold at nineteen years old in the only place I knew
how to be

I became a senior in my sophomore year/ a cup of liquor took the place of warm beer/and some nights we'd go across the street at 1:30 but mostly we'd just stay there

Verse 3
And the signatures scrawled up the wall/told the stories that escape us all/ we carved our names in a booth/ you, me and the crew/ but our love didn't die in those flames

Verse 4
And I rememeber after the first gig I ever played/
you turned off your lights and you stayed open late/
you knew rebels like us you could trust to lock up, after all we all protect our home

Repeat Chorus

Verse 5
The drinks are supposed to burn not the bar
The drinks are supposed to burn not the bar
Thanks for the memories and thanks for your heart
The drinks are supposed to burn not the bar
And thanks for helping me make it this far
the drinks are supposed to burn not the bar
