I have spent a lifetime
Waiting for the chance
To save you my confession
Save the one last dance

The same old superstition
Haunt us now and then
I'm begging for ignition
To start it all again

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

We'll burn away from all the other flames that burn tonight

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

Breathe for me from now on
Breathe for me when I'm gone
Burn out beyond
Out beyond the sun

Will you still remember
There behind the skies
Walking on the embers
Standing in their light

The hardest part is knowing
Everything must die
The hardest part is waiting here
Waiting to collide

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

We'll burn away from all the other flames that burn tonight

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

Breathe for me from now on
Breathe for me when I'm gone
Burn out beyond
Out beyond the sun

Burn on, burn on
Calling to you
Burn on, burn on
Calling to you
Burn on, burn on...

I'll never burn again
Never burn again [x3]
We'll never burn again
Never burn again [x3]
