Burn Bright (Sam Whimpenny)

Listen to the words the wise men say
They will come back to you someday
You could guess it all my friend
Pay Attention!
It’ll make sense to you in the end

Burn Bright Burn Long

Some are Teachers, some are Knowers, there’s no doubt
Trust Philosophy that let’s you shout
Anyone can make this grade
So what’s your name?

Burn Bright Burn Long

Gotta get through to you
It’s up to you what you do
If no-one returns your calls
Your world is your four walls
Time doesn’t fly it crawls
You can begin again…

Burn Bright Burn Long

Essence isn’t everything you know
Theory can begin what life won’t show
Summer’s in the back room now
And here she comes
How is life looking now you’ve done your sums?
