"Love Burns" as written by Peter Hayes, Robert Turner and Nicholas Jago....
Never thought I'd see her go away
She learned I loved her today
Never thought I'd see her cry
And I learned how to love her today
Never thought I'd rather die
Then try to keep her by my side

Now she's gone love burns inside me
Now she's gone love burns inside me
Now she's gone love burns inside me

Nothing else can hurt us now
No loss, our love's been hung on a cross
Nothing seems to make a sound
And now it's all so clear somehow
Nothing really matters now
Now we're gone and on our way

Now she's gone love burns inside me
Now she's gone love burns inside me
Now she's gone love burns inside me

She cuts my skin and bruise my lips
She's everything to me
She tears my clothes and burns my eyes
She's all I want to see
She brings the cold and scars my soul
She's heaven sent to me

Now she's gone love burns inside me
Now she's gone love burns inside me
Now she's gone love burns inside me

Never thought I'd leave you like the way I do, yeah
Kiss my love and I wish you're gone
You can kiss my love and I wish you're gone
Never thought I'd leave you like the way that I do

Kiss my love and I wish you're gone
You can kiss my love and I wish you're gone
Now she's gone love burns inside me
Now she's gone love burns inside me
Now she's gone love burns inside me

    General CommentIt think this guy is a love masochist. When his girl is around, he can't stand her (''I'd rather die/Then try to keep her by my side'', ''You can kiss my love and I wish you're gone''). They eventually break up, and he realises that he loves her better now she's gone. ''NOW she's gone love burns inside me'', this means, when they were together, love didn't ''burn''. When she was his, he hated her, but he loves her now she doesn't belong to him anymore. But he doesn't want her back. He's quite passionate towards the idea of an unrequited love.

    General Commentlove is complicated to begin with, finally there are some songs that explain just how complicated it can be. I agree with the above, this is a great song.

    General CommentI think it's about a destructive relationship:

    "She cuts my skin and bruise my lips
    She's everything to me
    She tears my clothes and burns my eyes
    She's all I want to see
    She brings the cold and scars my soul
    She's heaven sent to me"

    but no matter how much she hurt him he still loved her, and ironically, when she finally leaves him, he hurts even more, because he still oves her "love burns inside me"

    I think he knows their relationship was destructivem and knew it was best to get out, but he really didn't want to, and his pride: "Never thought I'd rather die
    Than try to keep her by my side"
