Michael Jackson – Burn Tonight lyrics

We used to be one
I was the moon and you were my sun
And oh
We used to love once
Till you deserted me to hunt down more lunch

But you
Can't fool me
I know exactly whatcha doing
And you
Can't burn me, cause I flicked you into your doom

But still you're trying to burn me
But it just isn't working!

You make us burn
We can make this burn

You make us burn
Together we will burn!

Oh, girl I wanna testify, ooh come on and let me light the fire, we can
Make it work tonight, rain and thunder when you burn 2 night

Oh, girl I want to break your cries, ooh come on and watch you fire die, we
Can make it work tonight, rain and thunder when you burn 2 night
