Sonic Youth – Burnin' Up lyrics
Go burn me up, cause I'm on fire
And I can't reach my desire
Do you know that I'm burning up for your lovin'
You ain't convinced that that is nothing
With my soul in this position
And I presume the imposition
You know I'm alive
And there's so mean in my heart, it won't die
I'm burning up
I'm burning up (3x)
You're always closing the door
I think that that only makes me want you more
Damned I, too hard for you lovin'
You aren't conviced that that is nothing
Justify my wanting you
Tell me what you want me to do
I'm not blind, and I know
That you're going to want me, but you can't let go
I'm burning up (3x)
Do you want to sit down with me
[mumbling...]
.. would you please
I ain't the same see I got no shame
I'm on fire
Fire
Come on let go
Do you want to sit down with me
[mumbling...]
.. would you please
I ain't the same see I got no shame
I'm on fire
Fire
I'm burning up (repeated)
You got me burning up baby
I'm burning up (repeated)
