"Burns Like Summer Sun" as written by Benjamin Barson, Martin Brammer and James Morrison....
Oh, I'm counting down
Hoping the time has come
To let it out
Never a time I had tried to breathe
I feel suffocated, I'm on my knees

I felt the cold and dark run through my veins
Shivered when I heard her call my name

She burns like summer sun
I know she's the only one I want
Even when she's gone, wait
I felt the heat on my skin
When my head started to spin
Too much is never enough
She burns like summer sun, for me

Oh, I'm holding out
Now that the time has come
For giving in
So just for tonight would you keep me warm
Take away my pain
Help me forget it all

I felt the cold and dark run through my veins

Shivered when I heard her call my name

She burns like summer sun
I know she's the only one I want
Even when she's gone, wait
I felt the heat on my skin
When my head started to spin
Too much is never enough
She burns like summer sun, for me

No, yeah she burns
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

The time has come I'm counting down
Hear my breath and I let it out
Now there's nothing left she can take from me

She burns like summer sun
I know she's the only one I want
Even when she's gone, wait
I felt the heat on my skin
When my head started to spin
Too much is never enough
She burns like summer sun, for me

She burns like summer sun, oh no
She burns like summer sun, oh no
Burns like summer sun, sing it out now
Burns like summer sun, for me

    General CommentThis one's really good, just him with an acoustic guitar... it makes considerable sense to me as well. For instance, when I stand somewhat close to someoen I'm attracted to, for some reason it feels like they radiate heat, and so in the song it seems like he's saying that she's a burning bit of sun whenever he's close to her and he can't get enough of that feeling

    General CommentIts about someone he wants, and feels rather flustered around. He's going to make his move to the next level. So that he feels comfortable ?! great song btw

    General CommentI like how he slightly speaks 'When my head started to spin'


    Maybe about liking someone(obviously), but there's something stopping him.
