Powderfinger - Burn Your Name Lyrics




I was stumbling right by
Like a wreck I came to you
So I staggered through the night
Seeking out your rescue blues
Gonna burn your name right across the sky
So I never forget what the feeling's like
Gonna burn your name right across the sky
So I never forget what the feeling's like

I want every single soul to know
That I love you for what you are
So I sound the bells that praise your precious heart

So tomorrow will arrive
In a burst o' broken light
And a spell will hold us back
Shattering like glass

I want every single soul to know
That I love you for what you are
So I sound the bells that praise your precious heart
I want every single soul to know
That I love you for what you are
So I sound the bells that praise your precious heart

Burn your name right across the sky
So I never forget what the feeling's like
Burn your name right across the sky
So I never forget what the feeling's like
Burn your name right across the sky
So I never forget what the feeling's like
Burn your name right across the sky
So I never forget what the feeling's like

I want every single soul to know
That I love you for what you are
So I sound the bells that praise your precious heart
I want every single soul to know
That I love you for what you are
So I sound the bells that praise your precious heart

Gonna burn your name
Gonna burn your name

    they played the finger alot on brisbane radio, savage garden too and the brisbane lions were going thru their purple patch in AFL. my misses worked at mcseems cafe .the singer and some of the band would freqent. one of them used to buy a cascade apple juice and we thought that's where that song came from,hehe. and naming an album vulture st! woohoo!! that was pretty cool in those times. Woolloongabba baby!

    Trains of Australia

    I'd probably say my happiness would be a good favourite as it's their most popular song.

    Fasten your candle centre, cut the middle out of the lid and use that as your shape for the paper and your fastener for the candle.


    Light the candle and she'll fly like a hot air balloon :)
