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 a ride
The prisoners werw lined up outside
Jumped a wall, hitched a ride and now I'm here to stay
Love you baby anyway

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

Run across the country fields in all the rain
They had guns and dogs and everything
Swama river tryin' 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 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
Yeah it's burnin' babe
I believe my soul's 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
Out to see you baby
Yeah it's burnin' babe
Oh, burnin'
I believe my soul's on fire
Oh, burnin'
Ah, yeah, ah oh

    General Comment:I 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 Comment:I 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! :)
