"Burn For You" as written by Phillip Andrew Buckle, John Farnham and Ross Fraser....
I got myself into some trouble tonight
Guess I'm just feeling blue
It's been so long since I've seen your face
This distance between me and you

That voice you showed me is not the one I know
I must be strung out on what I do
Don't hang up again
There's nothing else I know how to do

But I burn for you
What am I going to do
I burn for you
Burn for you

I guess it feels like you're always alone
And I feel that way too
It's so hard to explain to you
Please understand what I do

But I burn for you
What am I going to do
I burn for you
Burn for you

Took my trouble to a bar tonight
For another point of view
But there's nothing new
I'm missing you

But I burn for you
What am I going to do
I burn for you
Burn for you

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song!!!!! It is like the bestest John Farnham song ever. I think it is about a break up, and he is just missing his ex. It is seriously the sweetest song everrrrrr. Aussie's got talent!!!

    General CommentI love this song so much, I think it's underrated. It's one of the most romantic, passionate and beautiful love songs of all time. Burning for someone is just so intense, wow. Yeah this is one of john's best songs. He has such an incredible voice, he sings this song perfectly. He has actually explained what the song means to him.. it's about being away from your loved ones and missing them so much. I think it's especially about him being overseas and doing what he has to do (make music and perform) and he simply wants his wife (he is definitely married) to know that he burns for her and misses her so deeply.
    "I guess it feels like you're always alone

    Please understand what I do
    I burn for you
    What am I going to do
    I burn for you
    Burn for you"
    This is simply a beautiful, passionate and breath-taking song. Sad as well. Very emotional

    Song MeaningHe wrote this for his wife.
    I was at his 2009 concert and he brought the room to tear talking about his wife and also there 2 boys on how he admires his wife work at a mother and a woman. Coming back home after tour meant having to come back to routine and having to fit back into family life. I admire his marriage to his wife. they are one strong couple
