Johnny Told Me

JOHNNY TOLD ME

Johnny told me, love’s a burning thing
But I was young then and I didn’t understand
Now I’m older with some experience
Love can burn you ‘til you talk but make no sense

You can go out driving to clear your head somehow
It’ll all come back with the sound of her name
If you see me walking on that lone and lost highway
Know me, by the mark of the flame

Johnny told me in the ring of fire
There’s a falling as the flames reach higher and higher
Now I know that when you enter the rapture blaze
Love can burn you leave you dead for days

You could drink yourself silly ‘til thoughts freeze in your head
It’ll all come back with the sound of her name
If you see me walking on that lone and lost highway
Know me, by the mark of the flame
