"Burnin' Sky" as written by and Paul Rodgers....
The sky is burnin' I believe my soul's on fire,
You are, I'm learning, the key to my desire.

Waiting for the van to arrive,
The prisoners were lined up outside.
Jumped a wall, hitched a ride,
and now I'm here to say;
Love you, baby, anyway, oh, yeah.

The sky is burnin' I believe my soul is on fire,
You are, I'm learning, the key to my desire.

Ran across the country fields, in all terrain,
they had guns and dogs and everything.
Swam a river try'n to lose my trail,
But they caught me, under the bridge. Oh yeah!

The sky is burnin' I believe my soul's on fire,
You are, I'm learning, the key to my desire.

Oh, yeah.

The sky is burnin' I believe my soul's on fire,
You are, I am learning, the key to my desire.

The judge said, 'this man's a danger to humanity,
We're gonna lock him up and throw away the key'
Now, baby, your love has sent me to jail
But I'd rather die than see you with another man

It's burnin' baby, mm, mm; I believe my souls on fire

I believe my souls on fire,
Working on the railroad, every day
But they can't keep me here
And I'm not gonna stay
I got to get outta this place
I'll see you, baby.

It's burnin', yeah, it's burnin'.
I believe my souls on fire,
Keep on burnin',
Ah, yeah, yeah, ah, oh, oho. Keep on burnin'

    General CommentI love this song.. it's got a sexy feel to it. I believe it is about a guy who killed a guy who was messing around with his girlfriend.. so they sent him to jail.. but he escaped and then they caught him again... and he still is trying to bust out...

    General CommentI love this! It defiantly one of my favourite Bad Company songs, it has such an edge and just like KLR65 said, "a sexy feel". It's great listening when your in your car driving down the highway, window open, sun in your face, i love it! I also like its about a guy who killed his girlfriends lover. Or possibly they broke up and he killed her new boyfriend. It's not clear. But anyways, he killed the man and now is in jail because of his love for her. I like the imagery in the chorus with all that the sky is burning stuff. It relates the world ending and evil taking over to this guys emotions and his inner feelings. GREAT BAND one of my FAV'S! :)
