"Backburner" as written by and Michael Paul Pinto....
Oh is it true
Is it true
Or have I been mistaken
Oh it's you
It's you
Who started this trouble makin'
Sure I'm a fool
I'm a fool
For putting my heart in such a situation
I tried to keep my cool
Keep my cool
Baby I've grown impatient
Well you've got my attention
Now bust out your intentions

Baby don't put me on your backburner
Baby don't put me on your backburner
Baby don't put me on your backburner
Baby don't put me on your backburner

Well when I start thinking bout you and me
It gets my pulse racein (racein, racein)
You don't seem to care much about me
When I'm looking in your direction (your direction)
Oh girl you can take it or leave it
Baby are you too blind to see that
Your leavin me high and dry (high and dry)
And when you take my love girl (while you wait for another)
Your gonna cross the line (cross the line, cross the line)
Well you've got my attention
Now bust out your intentions

Baby don't put me on your backburner
Baby don't put me on your backburner
Baby don't put me on your backburner
Baby don't put me on your backburner

I've been waiting a long long time for a girl like you
But I ain't wastin any one of my days
Cause I've got better things to do
Your giving me grief
But I aint no thief
You seem to be the one who misunderstood
Cause you keep turning your back
Turning your back
When things were just getting good

Baby don't put me on your backburner
Baby don't put me on your backburner
Baby don't put me on your backburner
Baby don't put me on your backburner

    General CommentThis is my favourite song from mike pinto a friend introduce me to it on myspace the guitar o really raw remiond me of sublime influence anyways here your two definetion of the word backburner first

    on the back burner put aside for the time being, as a subject that is not of immediate concern but that may be activated later; postponed

    reduced priority


    the song itself to me is pretty simple if u just lusten to it it about agirl this guy have a major crush on but it is actually the girl who sarted thr troublemaking probably a beautiful girl in the sense of those kinda of chicks I mean that u should not fall in love with(Sure I'm a fool
    I'm a fool
    For putting my heart in such a situation) or to let this feeling grow immediately
    she keeps putting him aside while hes been waiting for while now but she keep putting him aside


    he also mention high and dry which means being in a helpless or abandoned position

    so yeah she keeps putting him asidee as the song ends
    Baby don't put me on your backburner

    the music video is really great and acoustic but the original version is the best for me back burner his best song still out for it is complete
