Would you believe me, if I said, "I'd never lie?"
Though it ain't easy, I can tell you I have tried
But I got to say that it comes those days
That I told somethin' untrue
Would you forgive me, if I said, "I'd lied to you?"

This is my fear to tell you what I've done
As things come clear, I'm afraid that you'll be gone
But all I know is if you go at least I've told what's true
Hope you'll forgive me when I say, "I've lied to you", yeah

I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothin' I can do
Yes I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothin' I can do

How will you kill me for what I'm about to tell?
Please do it gently 'cause you know I'm bound for hell
All I know is, I've lost my soul, I'm burnin' inside
Hope you'll forgive me Yes I have lied
Oh yes I've lied

I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothin' I can do
Yes I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothin' I can do

Now you know that I've gone
And I've been untrue to you and once it's told
Well you know there's nothin' we can do, yeah
I regret that I let this get so out of hand
I pray, please stay that you'll understand

I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothin' I can do
Yes I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothin' I can do, oh yeah, yeah

I'm burnin' up
I'm burnin' up
I'm burnin' up
I'm burnin' up

I'm burnin' up
I'm burnin' up
I'm burnin' up
I'm burnin' up

I'm burnin' up
I'm burnin' up
I'm burnin' up
