Burnin' The Midnight Oil Lyrics

Artist: The Foghat
Album: Night Shift

Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ASCAP

Shoulda' listened to someone, love has gone, I've got nowhere to run.
I shoulda' listened to someone, love has gone, I've got nowhere to run.

She's gone and I know, that the pain is beginnin' to show, I'm hurting inside.
My world fell apart, but love's still burning in my heart, but where can I hide?

Love turned to stone, and I'm tired of bein' alone,
Yeah, burnin' the midnight oil - Yeah, burnin' the midnight oil.

There's a voice in my head runnin' over everything she said, and I can't erase it.
Love was a game, well I lost and it's a cryin' shame, but I gotta face it.

Nowhere to go, and time is moving slow,
Yeah, burnin' the midnight oil - Yeah, burnin'...

Burnin' the midnight oil - hot water getting ready to boil,
Drink coffee 'til my nerves are wired - I'm so high, I think I'll never be tired.
Feeling sad and I'm mad, all the bad luck that I've had.

{Rod - Solo}

Shoulda' listened to someone, love has gone, I've got nowhere to run.
I shoulda' listened to someone, love has gone, I've got nowhere to run.
Shoulda' listened to someone, love has gone, I've got nowhere to run.
I shoulda' listened to someone, love has gone, I've got nowhere to run.

I'll lay back on my bed, memories runnin' through my head, I tried to forget.
The clock's striking twelve, I'm still trying to convince myself it's not over yet.
Love turned to stone, and I'm tired of bein' alone,
Yea, burnin' the midnight oil - Yea-ee-yea, burnin' the midnight oil.
