Don't Burn Yourself Out (Pledge Mix)

by Dan Masterson

lyrics

You’re so quick to slip into the silence
Like you’d rather get lost in a screen
But could you make your mind up just to be with me?

You tune out everybody around you
Search for answers and scroll through your feed
Like you don’t know when to stop and make time for me.

I don’t want to have to storm out and slam doors just to get you to talk to me.

Lately everything feels so overwhelming
And maybe we need to take some time for ourselves
I don’t want you to hate me or blame me
I’m afraid you’re gonna burn yourself out
And it’s a long way back if you let yourself get down.

You can count all the minutes and hours
All the moments you miss in a day
But if you can’t let it go, you just lie awake

So look up, disconnect for a while
Pick an end of the candle to keep
Before the blue lights fade out and you’re fast asleep.

I don’t want to have to storm out and slam doors just to get you to talk to me.

Lately everything feels so overwhelming
And maybe we need to take some time for ourselves
I don’t want you to hate me or blame me
I’m afraid you’re gonna burn yourself out
And it’s a long way back if you let yourself get down.

Don’t burn yourself out
Don’t burn yourself out
Don’t burn yourself out
Don’t burn yourself out

Don’t you burn yourself out
Cause it’s a long way back
Yes it’s a long way back
Yes it’s a long way back
If you let yourself get down.
