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's enough

I put myself in this position
And I deserve the imposition
But you don't even know that I'm alive
And this pounding in my heart just won't die
I'm burning up

[Chorus:]

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
But you're still 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, oh

[chorus]

[Intermediate:]

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

I'm burning up [repeat 7 times]

[intermediate]

I'm burning up, burning up for your love [repeat 7 times]

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

You know you got me burning up, baby
You know you got me burning up, baby

Burning up for your love
[repeat and fade]
