lyrics

GOTTA LIGHT

she doesn't want me doesn't want me to die i
i let her take the wheel
whole way she holds the keys and my itinerary
she says stay with her sister she'll show me around
stay me off the rye

doctor i'm still with the devil
and we have a laugh at it all
she's such a natural
ready to catch and i
gotta light

i call her goddess when she calls me to rise i
i let her take the wheel
been there she knows the way
she'll drop me off and drive on as long as she
she knows i'm alive
i'm not gonna lie

doctor i'm still seeing the devil
in the night
goin for a drive
now i have her back and she is on my side
she is medicinal

her feeling is beautiful not so supernatural
my burdens and worries all evaporate like alcohol

thought collection stretch a leg
they wanna wander
she doesn't mind

one sip o' that
i'm gonna come to in the mud down by the river
get up or swept away

doctor i'm still with the devil
and we have a laugh at it all
she's such a natural
ready to catch and i
gotta light
