Burn Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Burn (6:00)
The sky is red, I don't understand,
past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
The city's a blaze, the town's on fire.
The woman's flames are reaching higher.
We were fools, we called her liar.
All I hear is "Burn!"

I didn't believe she was devil's sperm.
She said, "Curse you all, you'll never learn!
When I leave there's no return."
The people laughed till she said, "Burn!"
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin', we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"

You know we had no time,
we could not even try.
You know we had no time.

You know we had no time,
we could not even try.
You know we had no time.

The sky is red, I don't understand,
past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"
2. Might Just Take Your Life (4:36)
I got more than I asked for,
there ain't nothin' I need.
I took all till I had more,
I'm always takin' the lead.

Old man shakin' dice down on the street,
try'n to make a livin' somehow
but I'm really sure about gettin' things sorted out
and I'm gettin' ready right now.

You can't hold me,
I have told you.
Might just take your life,
might just take your life.

I've been called by many names
and all of them are bad.
I can take it all the same,
it's all I've ever had.

I've got somethin' that you can't get
but one thing you can see:
gettin' there ain't easy
but it sure was hard for me.

You can't hold me,
I have told you.
Might just take your life,
might just take your life.

Every time I take a look
there's someone close behind.
They never used to make a pass,
the things that crossed their minds.

Now they tell me that it's all right
and they want to be my friend.
They're ridin' on my back.
When is it goin' to end?

You can't hold me,
I have told you.
Might just take your life,
might just take your life,
might just take your life.

Got more than I asked for,
got more than I need.
Got more than I asked for,
got more than I need.
Got more than I asked for,
got more than I need
3. Lay Down, Stay Down (4:15)
I don't care if my lady's gone
as long as you give me just what I want.
I've been losin' my direction,
got to find a new connection.

You have wasted the love I tasted,
now I'm really gettin' hungry more and more.
Been a long time, had a bad sign.
Tell me what am I fighting for?

Let me know you feel it,
you know I really need it.
Keep on pushin' for more,
lay down, stay down.
I got something to find,
there's one thing I really need.
I'm gonna tell you right now,
lay down, stay down.

Lookin' for trouble, I guess that's right.
When I was young I was taught to fight.
It's been long gone since I had known,
now I'm headin' for some more.

Let me know you feel it,
you know I really need it.
Keep on pushin' for more,
Lay down, stay down.
I got something to find,
there's one thing I really need.
I'm gonna tell you right now,
lay down, stay down.

Let me know you feel it,
you know I really need it.
Keep on pushin' for more,
lay down, stay down.
I got something to find,
there's one thing I really need.
I'm gonna tell you right now,
lay down, stay down
4. Sail Away (5:48)
If you're driftin' on an empty ocean
with no wind to fill your sail,
the future, your horizon,
it's like searchin' for the Holy Grail.
You feel there's no tomorrow
as you look into the water below.
It's only your reflection
and you still ain't got no place to go.

Time will show,
when, I don't know.

Sail away tomorrow,
sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
I'll be there someday yea-yea-yeah yea-ye-yeah.

Oh, woman, I keep returnin
to sing the same old song.
The story's been told, now I'm gettin' old.
Tell me,where do I belong?
Feel like I'm goin' to surrender,
nard times I've had enough.
If I could find a place to hide my face,
I believe, I could get back up.

Time will show,
when, I don't know.

Sail away tomorrow,
sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
But I'll be there someday yea-yea-yeah yea-yea-yea-yeah.

Sail away tomorrow,
sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
But I'll be there someday yea-yea-yeah yea-yea-yea-yeah.

Sail away tomorrow,
sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
But I'll be there someday yeah yeah yeah yea-yea-yeah yeah yeah yeah
5. You Fool No One (4:47)
You fool no one, waiting to see if I'm gone.
So hard to see you are taking your chances with me.
If I find you with some other man
you know what I'm gonna do.
Better run if you see me comin', ah.

Soon you will fall, making mistakes like before.
When you tell me lies I can see by the look in your eyes.
If you think you're gonna take me for granted,
chasin' round with all you see,
gonna make you live to regret it, ah.

You fool no one, waiting to see if I'm gone.
So clear to see you've had all your chances with me.
You thought that you could take me for granted
but I couldn't take it no more.
Better run when you see me comin, ah
6. What's Goin' On Here (4:55)
Roll me over slowly, I've been drinkin' all night,
help me make a move, I can't stand the light.
Wake me, shake me, don't slam the door.
I ain't been so bad, I just can't recall.
Spent the night chasin' up a listed old flame,
lyin' on the floor I can't remember her name.
I can't stay here, there's something wrong here.
What's goin onhere?

Went downtown, had a long way to go.
How I got there, well, I don't know.
Found myself sittin' in a west side bar,
tried to leave but I could not go far.
High class woman try'n to give me a line,
should have left early when I felt so fine.
I can't stay here, there's something wrong here.
What's goin' on here?

When they closed up the bar, you know, they left me for dead.
I can't remember a thing I said.
Must have called the police to take me away.
They said, "Forty days", now I've got to pay.
Spent the night chasin' up a listed old flame,
lyin' on the floor I can't remember my name.
I can't get together while they're messin' with me,
keep on lookin' round, tell me where can I be.
I can't stay here, there's something wrong here.
What's goin' on here?
7. Mistreated (7:25)
I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been struck downhearted, baby, I've been confused
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing my mind, you know I have.

I've been lonely, I've been cold.
I've been looking for a woman to have and hold
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, I've been losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.

I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been looking for a woman, yeh, I've been confused
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated, ooh o-o-oh.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.
Oh oh oh, oh woman, oh woman, oh woman.

I've been losing my mind
