Musgraves, Kacey - Slow Burn Lyrics




Born in a hurry, always late
Haven't been early since '88
Texas is hot, I can be cold
Grandma cried when I pierced my nose
Good in a glass, good on green
Good when you're putting your hands all over me

I'm alright with a slow burn
Taking my time, let the world turn
I'm gonna do it my way, it'll be alright
If we burn it down and it takes all night
It's a slow burn, yeah

In Tennessee, the sun's goin' down
But in Beijing, they're heading out to work
You know the bar down the street don't close for an hour
We should take a walk and look at all the flowers

'Cause I'm alright with a slow burn
Taking my time, let the world turn
I'm gonna do it my way, it'll be alright
If we burn it down and it takes all night
It's a slow burn

Whatever feels good

Old soul, waiting my turn
I know a few things, but I still got a lot to learn
So I'm alright with a slow burn, slow burn, slow burn
I'm alright with a slow burn

Musgraves, Kacey Slow Burn Comments
  1. IBCrazyR

    So many words in this song just linger in my ears. I'm 60 yrs old this year and have heard a lot of artist come and go. Kacey my hand is on my heart for you staying true to you! For all who can see this... listen to an old man. Be you in All things. :)

  2. Sir Foxstrout

    I like how the captions is in Japanese

  3. hüjék a pártbuzik

    The best song from Yellowstone. Beauti American.

  4. cami g

    I can’t listen to country music I’m sorry but this...WOW this goes beyond country. Her VOICE AGGG

  5. Cicero J. Faraday

    [insert comment that includes ‘I don’t generally enjoy country’]

  6. John Spiller

    Perfection, thy name is Kacey Musgraves.

  7. Aaron Weeks

    Tbh I hate country music but god damn this is some good stuff

  8. heck

    u gotta love acid

  9. Kara Bear

    I need to take away from this song. It's okay to take your time, admire the smallest things, shut the noise out. Let your mind be free 💖. Thank you Kacey.

  10. JL 1996

    i listened to slow burn the first time when i was actually on the subway going to work in Beijing (im from China); so when i heard the "But in Beijing, they're heading out to work" line, i almost cried right there.

  11. Anonymous Squirrel

    why are the subtitles in japanese?

  12. Marco Antony

    finally I can understand why this album was the album of the year, such a masterpiece

  13. R. D.

    Beautiful . . .

  14. Kari G

    If your serious about us...two dates before valentine's day is what I'm asking today the first day of jan 2020. I've been taking it slow...you can mail me a note if you cant text or call. Thank you, sweet man. You like an old fashioned kind of romance but I need to know your serious.

  15. Harjodh Khalsa

    First song I listened to in 2020 and the decade. Setting myself up for good things hopefully.

  16. David Bowman

    Not crying -- just magnificently moved by this transcendent young talent.

  17. Phryne Mnesarete

    such a good song for coming up on an acid trip

  18. Rum Ham

    My girlfriend makes me listen to this song over and over in the and based off the title I expected a track about being ruthlessly teased by a person with an intellectual disability which also took a considerable amount of time to spit out but instead Ive been forced to endure and eventually tolerate a lovely and endearing country pop ballad which I maybe even slightly enjoy a little more with every forced listen. Consider me a captive audience developing Stockholm syndrome. Keep it up!

  19. Joshua Steele

    Not a country fan. Love her music. what is happening??

  20. Francisco Jesus

    Yellowstone brought me here !

  21. The Michałkiewiczs

    Just added to my fave list .. love this so much..

  22. Sheniece McFarlane

    I am a year late. But this is so good.

  23. Sh'Ē is v't

    K40.42 E40.46 wait

  24. Dave Shephard

    just listen to the greatest artist of all time. we love you Kacey

  25. mitzi11a

    Sounds like a country remix of Boards of Canada's Dayvan Cowboy.

  26. Aleksandra Tryniecka

    Dear Kacey, I adore your work and the album "Golden Hour." It's so much about life and you and your profound music are amazing! Thank you so much for your presence in my life through this amazing music - thank you for your amazing work!

  27. Christopher Aizen

    She sounds like a female John Mayer. This is good music

  28. M R

    This song screeeams “Old Man” by Neil Young and I dig it. Not bad for my intro to Kacey Musgraves.

  29. vishnu shukla

    Hii the song of the year won Grammy award

  30. First Name

    Smokin some goodie good good CBD to this, thoughts of trauma leave my body physically then I just think about Colorado mountains with the sun turning the sky blood red behind them, causing instant relaxation in the cells. As I gallop on my stallion feeling the wind 💨 through me. Whoaaaaaaaa man

  31. Armand Di Meo

    This is a very powerful song musically and lyrically. It is in a different league than most contemporary country music. I heard it for the first time on a college radio free form show, of all places. My inital impression was that it was Sarah Jarosz or Sierra Hull, who are outside the country mainstream. It uses a very non-traditional chord progression for country music. It may still be possible for Top 40 country music to redeem itself.

  32. Shawn Price

    you have to listen to this song while driving in the rain just contemplating life, I'm alright with a slow burn. :)

  33. Tiffany

    I started listening to this album when I was pregnant and very sick because it felt so calm. And now I sing it to my daughter when she’s upset. I’ve never liked country music before but these days I am constantly listening to Kacey and lots of other country.

  35. Alejandro Avendano

    You stole my gold heart✨

  36. Corben Heaton

    Never heard of her until 2018... but man is she good.... I was missin' out

  37. Droid BK

    Song inspired by LSD

  38. Tom Irwin

    sloooooooow buuuuuuuuurn

  39. NB 1294

    This sounds like early Spring.

  40. Eujiboo

    Never one to listen to country but her music doesn't really feel country - her voice just oozes the "perfect cafe vibes".

  41. Norair Terterian

    I'm listening to this album already one year, so beautiful and peaceful

  42. Jami Susie

    I told Alexia to play me a song and I herd Kacey Musgraves and I just started to listen to her music, so glad. I am not a country type but OMG this stuff makes me want to cry even though I am not sad.😭

  43. cami story

    i am literally obsessed with this entire album. her voice is so heavenly & beautiful 🤩

  44. Emma Bratic

    This is definitely one of my favourite songs. I just love the vibe of the song.

  45. DAN SOLO Rider

    nice 90s vibe

  46. Mac Kelly

    Incredible

  47. Adriano Abade

    Amazing Kacey!!! Great song and now a brazilian fan!!!

  48. Linda F.

    Kacey, Miley stole part of your tune, with her song “Slide Away”. Please don’t ignore this injustice to your angelic song. Just with your tune alone, you can hear it if you were to add her voice in, singing “Slide Away”. I don’t believe it was an accident. Slow Burn was written FIRST, and the tune belongs to YOU, 100%! Please have a music analyst assist with representing you to a music lawyer. This is not right, & I’m surprised no one has noticed. :(

  49. Linda F.

    Miley Cyrus STOLE this song’s tune. Just go & listen to “Slide Away” after listening to this. It’s way too familiar sounding, and no I don’t mean it’s identical, but I’m js!! Miley made a piss-poor similar sound that’s utter trash!! I hope Kacey sees my comment! Sue her ass!

  50. Free Spirited Dreams

    What an angelic song

  51. Connor Bokum

    It’s not country just because there’s a guitar... it’s Americana

  52. Leonard Ferrara

    Simply put...just a great song.

  53. Daniel Brooks

    So wish this had an actual music video … such a great song.

  54. Noussa S

    Ethan's snap 😉

  55. Little Bird

    Modern day siren.

  56. Little Bird

    Crazy good.

  57. M*lf_Hunter224

    Trippin

  58. Steve H

    Kacey is wonderful...Slow burn baby!

  59. Daryl Waltz

    I just turned 33 10/12/2019. I've never liked country music until I heard this song. I had to pause Yellowstone to look up this song on YouTube. Her voice is amazing...

  60. Chilli

    Was never a fan of country music but god she has such a beautiful voice and great writing skills, this song makes me feel so good haha 💜🥺

  61. M.javad Kazemi

    بهترین

  62. Goldblum Lover

    Its been a very long time that I've heard a song and a voice soooooo LOVELY!!!!

  63. L Smith

    I only found this song after Spotify started playing it on a Lizzo radio playlist. I cannot stop listening to it now. It’s perfection.

  64. Damaged Damaged

    Metal fan. Heard this playing in my local liquor store and had to hear it again

  65. calncourt

    Bethany sent me.. ♡

  66. Ranger4402

    I love the layering in the music. This song is a great use of the technique. I love the way she sings and keeps her emotions where they belong. It’s not over wrought. It is subtle in a great way.

  67. Laura Galbraith

    Aly & AJ anyone? They did a great cover of this song!

  68. El Deker

    This shit the Grammy took? By God that farce

  69. BlueAvery Rose

    Dove Cameron got good taste in music

    ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ I’m an all genre music lover

  70. Alan Lynch

    Heard this - and Kacey - for the first time on ‘K Country’ (Kildare FM, Ireland) last night. Lovely song with a perfect arrangement. Loving Kaycee’s pure tone, especially the harmonies. Just beautiful.

  71. 7dogguy

    this song would be perfect without the line "whatever feels good" it's literally a near perfect song literally 9.8 out of 10 just weak bridge.

  72. Swamp Eyes

    What is the instrument/sound that comes in at 1:22? I can’t stop replying that part. I will never get over this song.

    major tom

    Electric piano!

  73. chuppyizities

    0:26 I thought it was "taxes is high"

  74. therockkkkher

    Gotta throw in stupid s nose rings huh ?

  75. Adler Thomas

    Here after watching Yellowstone

  76. Jeremy Ross

    life will be gravy & slow burn & give me butterflies are my favorites by her

  77. Michelle Brewer

    She reminds me of Joni Mitchell.

  78. Katta Lady

    Gives me the sweet slow amber sunset mid 70s feel when I was real young and away from the evil adults for just a little while. Some brief reprieve to recharge my heart to get strength to bear the next day's onslaught of their soulless contemptuous hatred of my sweet child's heart. Steady minute by minute expert dagger shots into my baby soul. For what God only knew.

  79. quickthunder86

    Nelly Furtado?

  80. Cynthia Hart

    I don't like country music, but this is a beautiful song. She has some serious talent.

    Second time hearing: why am I coming back to this.
    Third time hearing: Seeking my friend’s validation.
    Fourth time hearing: I needed this.
    Good thing is that she’s ok with a slow burn. So ironic.
