The Vamps – Burn lyrics

I need big dreams of city streets and bright lights
'Cause these scenes don't make me feel alright
And I want this world, and I can take
And I can feel myself on the brick about to break

And I'll be lost and alone
And I'm scared to fall on my own
I need hope or control
But something's pulling me in

It needs to hurt, so we could work
And I need fire, so I can burn
And I need love, so I can learn
I'm just a boy with the world at my feet
You find a girl, telling me to not get hurt
Telling me but I won't learn

'Cause I want you and nothing can stop this
So let's sit and watch this burn
And as it ends up in ashes
We sit and laugh, yeah
We sit and watch this burn

I need your heart in both hands
And my plans are to make you feel alright
And you want it all in good time
And I get it that you've been hurt before, no

And I'll be lost and alone
And I'm scared to fall on my own

It needs to hurt, so we could work
And I need fire, so I can burn
And I need love, so I can learn
I'm just a boy with the world at my feet
You find a girl, telling me to not get hurt
Telling me but I won't learn

'Cause I want you and nothing can stop this
So let's sit and watch this burn
And as it ends up in ashes
We sit and laugh, yeah
We sit and watch this burn

When the world gets quiet
I'll scream your name
And when your lungs get tired
The air we'll breathe is the same
Don't forget me, let me ease your pain
Your heavy heart is breaking
Don't let it slip away

It needs to hurt, so we could work
And I need fire, so I can burn
I need love, so I can learn

Burn, 'cause I want you and nothing can stop this
So let's sit and watch this burn
And as it ends up in ashes
We sit and laugh, yeah
We sit and watch this burn

But I won't learn
'Cause I want you and nothing can stop this
So let's sit and watch this burn
And as it ends up in ashes
We sit and laugh, yeah
We sit and watch this burn
