Blue Oyster Cult BURNIN' FOR YOU Lyrics

Last updated: 04/27/2012 11:00:00 AM

Home in the valley
Home in the city
Home isn't pretty
Ain't no home for me

Home in the darkness
Home on the highway
Home isn't my way
Home I'll never be

Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I can't see no reason to put up a fight
I'm living for givin' the devil his due
And I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you
I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you

Time is the essence
Time is the season
Time ain't no reason
Got no time to slow

Time everlasting
Time to play B-sides
Time ain't on my side
Time I'll never know

Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I'm not the one to tell you what's wrong and what's right
I've seen suns that were freezing and lives that were through
But I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you
I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you

Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I can't see no reason to put up a fight
I'm living for givin' the devil his due
And I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you
I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you

I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you
And I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you

Great song! | Reviewer: Pete | 4/27/12

It's nice to pick up a line from someone who knows the lyrics. When I see "Time to play besides" instead of "Time to play B-sides", it's obvious the writer doesn't know the lyrics and misses the whole point of the line.

One of the BEST of BOC! | Reviewer: Becca | 2/4/08

I have always loved this song, from the references to home and time to the changes and finally the point of the song, and, of course, the band that put it all together, this song is a legend. I could hear it again and again and I would always appreciate it. Love it!

An All Time Classic | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/7/07

One of the best songs BOC put out. Their best album is Secret Treaties although Burnin' For You is not on this album. Check it out - not a single bad song on this album!! BOC ROCKS!!!!!
