Burn You Up, Burn You Down Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Straight as an arrow
Carry your intentions to the wind
Dogs all around you
But you cannot get the message to your friend
Verse 2
At every rendezvous you keep on walking around
Nighttime in the city and the rain keeps falling down
Verse 3
Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to lose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn't matter much which damn beat you use
Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to lose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn't matter much which damn beat you use
Verse 4
Ill wind blows the road to go
How many times we've told you so
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
No rhyme or reason
No way to make it easy 'til it's done
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
So you cross onto the other side of the street
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
Should know better but you keep turning up the heat
Verse 5
Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to lose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn't matter much which damn beat you use
Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to lose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn't matter much which damn beat you use
Verse 6
Oh-oh-ai-ai
(hey hey hey hey)
Let me feel this
(hey hey hey hey)
Hey-ey Hey Hey
(hey hey hey hey)
Make me feel it
(hey hey hey hey)
Verse 7
When they lose you, it can bruise you
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
Break me open, I need someone to see me
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
Make me feel it, make me feel
Verse 8
In the city and the rain is falling down
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
(Burn you up and I'll burn you down)
You can make it happen with your eyes, with your eyes alone
Verse 9
Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to lose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn't matter much which damn beat you use
Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to lose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn't matter much which damn beat you use
Verse 10
Break me open
(Let me tell you how it all works out)
(Never thought we had so much time to lose)
Make me feel it
(Just learning how to twist and shout)
(Doesn't matter much which damn beat you use)
Break me open
(Let me tell you how it all works out)
(Never thought we had so much time to lose)
Make me feel it
(You make me feel it)
(Just learning how to twist and shout)
(Doesn't matter much which damn beat you use)
Verse 11
You can make me feel it
You can make me, you can make me, you can make me feel it
You can make me feel it
You can make me feel it
You can make me feel it
