Home in the valley
Home in the city
Home isn't pretty
Ain't no home for me

Home in the darkness
Home on the highway
Home isn't my way
Home I'll never be

Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I can't see no reason to put up a fight.
I'm livin' for givin' the devil his due.

And I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
(I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you)
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
(I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you) (x2)

I'm burning for you
You

Time is the essence
Time is the season
Time ain't no reason
Got no time to slow

Time everlasting
Time to play besides
Time ain't on my side
Time, I'll never know

Burn out the day
Burn out the night.
I'm not the one to tell what's wrong or what's right.
I've seen suns that were freezing, and lives that were through.

(some interpretations quote "and lies that were true")



But, I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
(I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you)
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
(I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you) (x2)


(Guitar Solo)


Burn out the day
(Burn out the day)
Burn out the night
(Burn out the day)
Burn out the day
(Burn out the night)
Burn out the day
(Burn out the night)
Burn out the day
(Burn out the day)
Burn out the night
(Burn out tonight)

And I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
(I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you)
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
(I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you) (x2)
