James Francis - Bonfire Lyrics

Summer '87
I fell in love with a girl
She was 17
I thought I would marry her
She saved me from drowning in a salty beach
The sun made us golden. golden just like her feet
I must've been too sensitive to the fame
But I wasn't allowed to fight through the pain
But I guess that Bonnie's the one to blame
Welcome to Camp James
Bonfire:
Hook:
I've been writing songs to forget
Everything that you've ever said
And get me high
Coz I realized I'm the type of guy who cries
Maybe maybe
The bullet in the gun will jam
And I won't kill myself
I said, maybe maybe
The words in my stories
Will make you smile
And I can be myself
But get me high first
Please, get me high first
Verse:
Everybody wants to shake my hands
Taking pictures with famous bands
I'm making all this money
But It doesn't mean shit
Guaranteed; you never even heard Bonnie
I'm making all this money
But it doesn't mean shit
Guaranteed; you never even heard Bonnie
Hook:
I've been writing songs to forget
Everything that you've ever said
And get me high
Coz I realized I'm the type of guy who cries
Maybe maybe
The bullet in the gun will jam
And I won't kill myself
I said, maybe maybe
The words in my stories
Will make you smile
And I can be myself
But get me high first
Please, get me high first
Bridge:
Waiting for you felt like it would be easy, but it's so hard (2x)
Hook:
I've been writing songs to forget
Everything that you've ever said
And get me high
Coz I realized I'm the type of guy who cries
Maybe maybe
The bullet in the gun will jam
And I won't kill myself
I said, maybe maybe
The words in my stories
Will make you smile
And I can be myself
But get me high first
Please, get me high first
Bridge:
Waiting for you felt like it would be easy, but it's so hard (2x)
Hook:
I've been writing songs to forget
Everything that you've ever said
And get me high
Coz I realized I'm the type of guy who cries
Maybe maybe
The bullet in the gun will jam
And I won't kill myself
I said, maybe maybe
The words in my stories
Will make you smile
And I can be myself
But get me high first
Please, get me high first
Bridge:
Waiting for you felt like it would be easy, but it's so hard (2x)
