Dolly Parton - Burning Lyrics

When I look at you
I melt like a candle
You light a fire in me
What am I to do
I just hope I can handle
The heat and the smoke blinding me

This feeling, this fire
This burning desire
Is raging its way through my soul
And if you feel the same
Help me fan the flames
'Til we're burning out of control

Burning to know you
Burning to show you
And I've felt this way from the start
Burning with passion
I do hope it's lasting
And it's burning a hole in my heart

You kindle in me
A warm glowing feeling
A spark and a flicker of hope
It's more than a game
And like moths to a flame
We're drawn to its warmth and its glow

These embers of love
Are fueled by the notion
This could be an eternal flame
Consumed by the blaze
I fear it's too late
'Cause this torch that I hold bears your name

Oh, and I'm burning to know you
Burning to hold you
It's grown to a flame from a spark
Burning with passion
I do hope it's lasting
And it's burning a hole in my heart

Oh, I'm burning with passion
I do hope it's lasting...

I've had so many dreams fall apart...

And it's burning a hole in my heart...

I'm burning
Oh, I'm burning
Mmmm, I'm burning oh, I burning ooh

  27. Chynna Wallace

    This song !!! X

  28. Kould B

    One of the most talented & influential, yet unappreciated, artists of the twentieth century. She's truly a musical genius. Especially when you consider she taught herself the 'gueeeetar' & how to read music. What a lady! AND, she's been with the same man, her beloved husband, since last century (at least). A truly amazing feat in today's world. Like this comment if you respect for Dolly Parton. Just kidding. Respect her for what & who she is instead! 😬

  29. frozenlake 121

    Nardwuar and Ellie Goulding brought me

  30. Patrick S

    Dolly is such an underrated icon in Europe, but when it comes to country icons she’s still the best and first one mentioned

  31. Nyi Ma

  38. Bryan Gusty


  39. MsZeunicorn

    Mohammad Badjie

    It’s Hot like a lava

  40. Alucard 54

    This is one of those songs you have to lip sync yourself in the car.
    You can't not sing along!

  41. Jes se

    Farrah was robbed

  42. David Covarrubias

    That's me in the hell

    Bobbie Emery well I'm here because of both lol

    Kould B

    Moi 😁

    Euan Toms

    I’m both tbh. I’m here because I love dolly but I love drag race too. And that’s just a coincidence to me

    Lo Fernandes

    Love both

  44. Queen OftheNile

    Farrah should have won the lipsync

    Alucard 54

    Queen OftheNile Well.....let's face it, splits and free falls are almost always winners during the lip syncs.
    Which is ok.....if done right.

    Queen OftheNile

    Just like how Peppermint did bs during her lipsync with Trinity and then MAGICALLY whips her wig off and wins

    Alucard 54

    Queen OftheNile Amen. Thank God Sasha won.


    Farrah was lacking some energy, Alexis was giving us Dolly references and taking out hats and stuff, she was ready for it and Farrah just kinda seemed lost, she did look the part tho

    A Name

    Alucard 54 just because she looks like dolly doesn’t mean that she should of won.

  45. tom h.

    what a fucking TUNE :P RPD brought me here too and now I'm a dolly fan

  46. alessandro ballato gonzalez

    Bueno, al menos no soy el unico que vino aquí por RuPaul's Drag Race

  47. Quincy Simon

    You look at me that way...

  48. Jacob Cannon

    Drag race reminded me how much I loved this song. I love it when Ru does old school jams for lipsyncs. They're always the best imo

  49. win espinoza

    farrah vs alexis michell <3

  50. Ben Doherty AKA Acidica

    Everything was amazing I'm the lipsync, Alexis won becuase of the split.
