Within Temptation – Let Us Burn lyrics

The darkness has come to the roses
The fire is reaching the air
The colours that I have created
Are suddenly flying away

I'm not fighting myself, will not follow
'Cause my choices are mine, it's my fate
And I'll never bow down from the sorrow
I'll face all that is coming my way

The lying, the devil, the silence
Embracing the world on the edge

[Chorus:]

Let us burn
Let us burn
The night in the skies here tonight
Let us burn
Let us burn
In this fire that makes us yearn
We're fighting our fear of the silence
We're running through walls where they stand
Let us burn
Let us burn
Let us burn

I'm searching no more for tomorrow
I reach for the skies while I can
The unknown will always be waiting
My last day I'll jump in its hands

Why, why don't you let me burn?
Why don't you come down
And break out and let me burn?

Oh why, why don't you let me burn?
Why don't you let me burn?
Why don't you let me burn?

Oh why?
Chasing the demons in my mind
Oh why me?
Waiting for chains to throw me to the ground

The darkness has come to the roses
And the fire is reaching the air
