This poor trace
a striking resemblance to incidents that I've,
I've endured before
And you walk away, you take everything you own for grantite
And you take everything you own for grantite

Although everything I said was just a picture in my head
I think we can make it
Although everything I said was just a picture in my head
I think we can make it

And this looks exactly like something
that's happened to me before
And the letters you've written will never get here
And when you walk away you take everything you own for grantite
And you take everything you own for grantite

Although everything I said was just a picture in my head
I think we could make it
Although everything I said was just a picture in my head
I think we could make it

I'm burning up, my face is flushed
Oh, my fever is rising
I'm burning up, my face is flushed
My fever is rising

Muscles weakening
And I am leaping at opportunities to touch you
And it's becoming glaringly obvious
That I'm still walking after you

I'm still walking after you
I'm still walking after you
I'm still walking after you
I'm still walking after you
I'm still walking after you
(Walking after you)
I'm still walking after you
I'm still wakling after you
I'm still walking after you
(After you, after you)

    General Comment"Burning Up", I thought it was called "Still walking after you", thats the title I found it under. No difference though, different titles, still the same great song.

    General CommentTheres actually two versions of this song. One with just Nick titled "Burning Up" and then one with a female in it titled "Still Walking After You."

    General Commentyeah and the one with nick only has one added part, where it goes and those letters you've written will never get here and he goes "'cause you never sent them"
