"Time To Burn" as written by Markus Loeffel and Rolf Ellmer....
Come on
Fear of the dark tears me apart
Won't leave me alone and time keeps running out

Just one more life, I'm so sick and tired
Of singing the blues, I should turn my life around
Come on

Tell me why do I feel this way
All my life I've been standing on the borderline
Too many bridges burned
Too many lies I've heard
I had life but I can't go back
I can't do that, it will never be the same again
And I know I don't
Have any time burn...
Come on

They follow me home, disturbing my sleep
But I'll find a place, place where they cannot find me
Maybe I'm lost, and maybe I'm scared
But too many times I've closed the doors behind me

Tell me why do I feel this way
All my life I've been standing on the borderline
Too many bridges burned
Too many lies I've heard

I had life but I can't go back
I can't do that, it will never be the same again
And I know I don't
Have any time burn

Leave it all behind
Cross the borderline
Face the truth, don't have any time to
Have any time to burn

Tell me why do I feel this way
All my life I've been standing on the borderline
Too many bridges burned
Too many lies I've heard

I had life but I can't go back
I can't do that, it will never be the same again
And I know I don't
Have any time to burn...have any time to burn

Tell me why do I feel this way
All my life I've been standing on the borderline
Too many bridges burned
Too many lies I've heard
I had life but I can't go back
I can't do that, it will never be the same again
And I know I don't
Have any time to
Have any time to burn [Repeat x2]

Come on

    General CommentI really love this song, it's my favourite of "dead letters". Aki said that this song it's about the way they sometimes feel about being famous. The fans, the press; sometimes they just want to dissapear. Mostly it's about the bad things of fame.

    General CommentTo me it means past with friendships made and broken. Memories of friends that dissapear from your life yet still haunt from the back of your head.

    General Commentthis song is deffo about being famous and not being able to be alone and wanting to go back to how it was before fame. it also says about the fans - 'They follow me home, disturbing my sleep'.

    General CommentI heard a strange story about lauri killing his parents, burning the house and leaving. then he becomes haunted by the deed he did and feels guilty. it almost fits but i'm sure that's not what the songs about.

    General CommentThis song literally brought me out of a decade of depression and thus saved my life, not that any of you care.

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me; When the album "Dead Letters" was released in 2003 my mother was still alive so the song "Time to burn" had a little diffrent meaning to me then, but then my mother past away in May 28th 2005 ; and after her death my feelings about the song has changed;
    It feels like he sings about my life ; like the line "Had a life. But I can't go back, can't do that. It will never be the same again" ; it's like - I had a life with my mother and now when she is dead I live another life and like Lauri sings in the song ; I can't go back to my other life ; 'cause how much I even want to my mother never will return to this world. :'((

    Sorry for making you guys feeling sad but I wanted to tell that The Rasmus music means a lot to me; if you want to talk with me about this , just write to me and I'll give you my e-mail.

    And to the last; -callingmorningstar- YOUR story is NOT right ; Lauri is NOT a murderer. NEVER !
