Burn Lyrics

by Jo Dee Messina

Do you wanna be a poet and write?
Do you wanna be an actor up in lights?
Do you wanna be a soldier and fight for love?

Do you wanna travel the world?
Do you wanna be a diver for pearls?
Or climb a mountain and touch the clouds above?

Be anyone you want to be
Bring to life your fantasies
I want somethin' in return

I want you to burn
Burn for me, baby
Like a candle in my night
Oh, burn, burn for me, burn for me

Are you gonna be a gambler and deal?
Are you gonna be a doctor and heal?
Or go to heaven and touch God's face?

Are you gonna be a dreamer who sleeps?
Are you gonna be a sinner who weeps?
Or an angel under grace?

I'll lay down on your bed of coals
Offer up my heart and soul
But in return

I want you to burn
Burn for me, baby
Like a candle in my night
Oh, burn, burn for me, burn for me

I want you to burn baby, oh
Laugh for me, cry for me
Pray for me, fly for me
Live for me, die for us

I want you to burn
Burn for me, baby
Like a candle in my night
Oh, burn, burn for me, burn for me

Yeah, I am
I want you to burn
I want you to burn for me, baby
Oh, yeah, burn for me

Yeah, I am
I want you to burn
I want you to burn for me baby, oh yeah
Burn for me
