"Burning Up" as written by and L Allen Steven Michael Marsden....
Don't put me off 'cause I'm on fire
And I can't quench my desire
Don't you know that I'm burning up for your love
You're not convinced that that is enough
I put myself in this position
And I deserve the imposition
But you don't even know I'm alive
And this pounding in my heart just won't die
I'm burning up

I'm burning up, burning up for your love
I'm burning up, burning up for your love
I'm burning up, burning up for your love
For your love

You're always closing your door
Well that only makes me want you more
And day and night I cry for your love
You're not convinced that that is enough
To justify my wanting you
Now tell me what you want me to do
I'm not blind and I know
That you want to want me but you can't let go
Come on, let go

I'm burning up, burning up for your love
I'm burning up, burning up for your love

I'm burning up, burning up for your love
For your love

Oh

Do you wanna see me down on my knees?
Or bending over backwards now would you be pleased?
Unlike the others I'd do anything
I'm not the same, I have no shame
I'm on fire

Come on, let go

Do you wanna see me down on my knees?
Or bending over backwards now would you be pleased?
Unlike the others I'd do anything
I'm not the same, I have no shame
I'm on fire

(Burning up for your love)
Ooh, yeah, I'm burning up (Burning up for your love)
Ooh, yeah, I'm burning up (Burning up for your love)
Come on, come on, I'm burning up (Burning up for your love)
Uh, uh, uh, I'm burning up (Burning up for your love)
Ooh, yeah, I'm burning up (Burning up for your love)
Come on, come on, I'm burning up (Burning up for your love)
Ooh, yeah, I'm burning up (Burning up for your love)
Uh, uh, uh (Burning up for your love)

You know you got me burning up, baby (Burning up for your love)
You know you got me burning up, baby (Burning up for your love)

Burning up for your love (Burning up for your love)
Burning up for your love (Burning up for your love)
Burning up for your love (Burning up for your love)
Burning up for your love

    General CommentUnrequited love. She loves this other person and either that person doesn't want her or has no clue. She'll do anything to fulfill her desire for this other person but the person isn't acknowledging her existence. "you don't even know I'm alive"

    Song FactAgreed with Kierra on Burning Up. After the facts about Sean and Guy, there is a marked anger, rage and defiance in Lady Madonna's voice. Her guitar work on Burning Up is equally angry and defiant! With early hit anthem Burning Up, Lady Ciccone knocked and kicked down the door! Madonna threw away the key and she was about to be unleashed as one of rock's all time greats-rock & roll was never again the same because of Madonna! Detroit Rock City Brilliance!

    General Commentthis song means cardancing. it means making elderly people and golfers look at us and make faces. it means matt dancing slutty in the front seat and elena being a totally irresponsible driver. this song means happy, carefree, teenage days.
