lyrics

YOU CALLED ME AT MIDNIGHT
I WAS OVER BY ONE
NO ONE APOLOGIZED
FOR NOT SPEAKIN’ IN MONTHS
SOMETIMES YOU GET LONELY
WHEN HE AIN’T AT HOME
THAT’S WHEN YOU WANT ME
& I CAN’T SAY NO

OLD FLAMES BURN SLOW
THEY DON’T DIE EASY
WE’RE BROKEN, I KNOW
INTO ALL OF THESE PIECES
BUT THEY’LL STILL FIT TOGETHER
IF YOU HOLD ‘EM JUST SO
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME, BABY
BUT OLD FLAMES BURN SLOW

WELL WE DON’T DO MUCH TALKING
SO WE DON’T HAVE TO FIGHT
ALL THE BAD BLOOD BETWEEN US
JUST DON’T MATTER TONIGHT
YOU’RE LIKE MY FAVORITE SONG
THE ONE I LOVE & DON’T KNOW WHY
THE ONE I CAN’T PLAY MUCH THESE DAYS
‘CAUSE IT ALWWAYS DID MAKE ME CRY

WELL, OLD FLAMES BURN SLOW
THEY DON’T DIE EASY
WE’RE BROKEN, I KNOW
INTO ALL OF THESE PIECES
BUT THEY’LL STILL FIT TOGETHER
IF YOU HOLD ‘EM JUST SO
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME, BABY
BUT OLD FLAMES BURN SLOW
AW, YOU’LL NEVER BE MINE, BABE
BUT OLD FLAMES BURN SLOW

about

Justin Pickard Dallas, Texas

In the course of Justin Pickard’s musical pilgrimage, his songwriting has covered a gamut of subjects: smoking and drinking, the ins and outs of grave-robbery, love and loss, and UFOs that resemble bananas. These subjects in any other writer’s care may not coalesce as seamlessly as they do in the hands of Pickard, who ties them together with wit, passion and heart.

-Jamie Vahala, Dallas Observer
