Temper Trap, The - Burn Lyrics




I don't sleep well
Under your spell
I'm told that people go
But still the night suffers
Your flame smaller
That face I just had to know
Know for sure

So what's the point in starting
Something that will crash and end
I could never tell

You got to burn burn burn baby
Once a while
You got to burn burn burn
Just to feel alive

They broke your crown
Set loose their hounds
On your tattered bones
Not a sound drew from your lips
As you got your fix
What holy pleasure of the damned
Is this

And our repentant hearts
Breaking on its knees again
We are drowning men

Singing burn burn burn baby
Once awhile
You got to burn burn burn
Just to feel alive

How can we know light without
Walking in the dark
There would be no spark

Singing burn
There would be no spark
Singing burn
There would be no spark

You got to burn burn burn baby
Once awhile
You got to burn and burn
Burn just to feel alive

  16. Xandy Lander X 250

    I'm impressed as a band of this caliber, it has just over 44,000 followers. While other bands or singers, with much less talent, have more than 1 million or more followers ...

  17. Jorden Nanna

    I don't sleep well
    Under your spell
    I'm told that people go
    But still the night suffers
    Your flame smaller
    That face I just had to know
    Know for sure

    So what's the point in starting
    Something that will crash and end
    I could never tell

    You got to burn burn burn baby
    Once a while
    You got to burn burn burn
    Just to feel alive

    They broke your crown
    Set loose their hounds
    On your tattered bones
    Not a sound drew from your lips
    As you got your fix
    What holy pleasure of the damned
    Is this

    And our repentant hearts
    Breaking on its knees again
    We are drowning men

    Singing burn burn burn baby
    Once awhile
    You got to burn burn burn
    Just to feel alive

    How can we know light without
    Walking in the dark
    There would be no spark

    Singing burn
    There would be no spark
    Singing burn
    There would be no spark

    You got to burn burn burn baby
    Once awhile
    You got to burn and burn 
    Burn just to feel alive

  26. Natasha C

    I hope they make the music video of this song! love you guys!

  27. Liz Arcega

    Watched them from 10 feet away last Saturday (stood 3 hours for that spot). It was my second time seeing them perform live and I swear, they got even better. So much emotion and passion. Every high note is on point. The Temper Trap is definitely a band that you'll never forget once you've seen them perform live.

  62. raayzo

    It's a bummer when a band puts out a phenomenal first album then the second one doesn't totally live up so anything after doesn't get much respect even if it's amazing like Thick As Thieves is! These videos deserve much more views

    John Phillips

    I loved their second album. I don't understand why people don't like it

  63. Balcan Stefan

    Nice piece from great album! Definitely best so far. Also love Summer's Almost Gone, but mostly What If I'm Wrong hoping 4 a single video release!!
