Burn You Up, Burn You Down Lyrics by Peter Gabriel


Peter Gabriel Lyrics

Burn You Up, Burn You Down Lyrics
Straight as an arrow
Carry our intentions through the wind
Dogs all around you
But your gonna get the message to your friend

At every rendezvous you keep on looking around
Nighttime in the city and the rain keeps falling down

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

I'll 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

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

Oh-oh-ai-ai
(hey hey hey hey)
Make me feel this
(hey hey hey hey)
Hey-ey Hey Hey
(hey hey hey hey)
Make me feel it
(hey hey hey hey)

When they lose you, it can bruise you
(Burn you up, we gonna burn you down)
(Burn you up, we gonna burn you down)
Break me open, I need someone to see me
(Burn you up, we gonna burn you down)
(Burn you up, we gonna burn you down)
Make me feel it, make me feel

In the city and the rain is falling down
(Burn you up, we gonna burn you down)
(Burn you up, we gonna burn you down)
You can make it happen with your eyes, with your eyes alone

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

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)

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...
