Burn Lyrics - Usher

Review The Song (49)



[Intro]
Girl, understand why
See it's burning me to hold onto this
I know this is something I gotta do
But that don't mean I want to
What I'm trying to say is that I-love-you I just
I feel like this is coming to an end
And its better for me to let it go now than hold on and hurt you
I gotta let it burn

[Verse 1]
It's gonna burn for me to say this
But it's coming from my heart
It's been a long time coming
But we done been fell apart
Really wanna work this out
But I don't think ya gonna change ya
sponsored links
I do but you don't
Think it's best we go our separate ways
Tell me why I should stay in this relationship
When I'm hurting baby, I ain't happy baby
Plus theres so many other things I gotta deal with
I think that you should let it burn

[Chorus]
When your feeling ain't the same and your body don't want to
But you know gotta let it go cause the party ain't jumpin' like it used to
Even though this might bruise you
Let it burn
Let it burn
Gotta let it burn

Deep down you know it's best for yourself but you
Hate the thought of her being with someone else
But you know that it's over
You know that it was through
Let it burn
Let it burn
Gotta let it burn

[Verse 2]
Sendin' pages I ain't supposed to
Got somebody here but I want you
Cause the feeling ain't the same find myself
Callin' her your name
Ladies tell me do you understand?
Now all my fellas do you feel my pain?
It's the way I feel
I know I made a mistake
Now it's too late
I know she ain't coming back
What I gotta do now
To get my shorty back
Oh oh oh oh
Man I don't know what I'm gonna do
Without my boo
You've been gone for too long
It's been fifty-eleven days, um-teen hours
I'mma be burnin' till you return (let it burn)

[Chorus]
When your feeling ain't the same and your body don't want to
But you know gotta let it go cause the party ain't jumpin' like it used to
Even though this might bruise you
Let it burn (let it burn, let it burn, you gonna learn)
Let it burn (gotta let it burn)
Gotta let it burn

Deep down you know it's best for yourself but you
Hate the thought of her being with someone else
But you know that it's over
you know that it was through
Let it burn
Let it burn
Gotta let it burn

[Bridge]
I'm twisted cause one side of me is tellin' me that I need to move on
On the other side I wanna break down and cry (oh)
I'm twisted cause one side of me is tellin' me that I need to move on
On the other side I wanna break down and cry (yeah)

[Breakdown]
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oh
Ooh ooh oh (can ya feel me burnin'?)
Ooh ooh ooh oh ooh oh

So many days, so many hours
I'm still burnin' till you return

[Chorus]
When your feeling ain't the same and your body don't want to
But you know gotta let it go cause the party ain't jumpin' like it used to
Even though this might bruise you
Let it burn
Let it burn
Gotta let it burn

Deep down you know it's best for yourself but you
Hate the thought of her being with someone else
But you know that it's over
You know that it was through
Let it burn
Let it burn
Gotta let it burn

"Burn" (also known as "Let It Burn") is a song by American R&B singer Usher, which he wrote with American songwriters Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox. The song was produced by Dupri and Cox for Usher's fourth studio album, Confessions (2004). "Burn" is about breakup in a relationship, and the public referred to it as an allusion to Usher's personal struggles.

Originally planned as the album's lead single, "Burn" was pushed back after favorable responses for the song "Yeah!". The song was released as the second single from the album in July 2004. The single topped various charts around the world, including the Billboard Hot 100 for eight non-consecutive weeks. The song succeeded "Yeah!" at the #1 position. Both singles gave Usher nineteen consecutive weeks with a song in the top spot, longer than any solo artist of the Hot 100 era. "Burn" was certified platinum in Australia and gold in New Zealand and United States. The song was well-received by critics and has garnered award nominations. In 2009 it was named the 21st most successful song of the 2000s, on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs of the Decade. From Wikipedia

The song burn is the kinda song i love so much. It's all about a clear expression of letting go of something you think is not going to favor you. It's for ladies and fellas so let's work on where we lack in our relationship so it doesn't burn when least expected. Bravo usher!!!

Exactly how I feel.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/9/11

Make me think of my husband, we been together for 16 years he cheated on me all throughout the relationship, had 2 children while cheating (2 girls), we have 3 boys, ironic that one of the girls are 11 years old the other 3 years old our sons 11 years old and 3 years old. He's begging me to stay with him, but it's hurting me & I'm not happy.....let it burn.........

burn | Reviewer: lindsey | 5/9/10

song okay.

These lyrics are incorrect | Reviewer: Annie | 2/20/10

In the beginning the CORRECT lyrics are,
I dont understand why see its burning me to hold on to this,
i know its something i gotta do but that dont mean i want to
what im trying to say is that i love you ALEXIS!
In all the lyrics online it says "i just" where the name alexis should be, this is the correct way...go listen to the song, it says alexis, NOT i just.
Btw, great song :D

omg i love this song!!! | Reviewer: nikki price | 1/6/10

omg! this song makes me think of my guy so much
and at times i feel like i want to cry and then
there are times when i think twice about our relationship and then he just says let it burn baby and i think of this song!

just want to be hearing the song every moment even if it bring back sad memories but still give me reason why i should let it burn. just love, and will aways do. tell this to the writter i got stuff like this.

Burn | Reviewer: Cynthia | 8/15/09

I love this tune, even though it brings me back to bad times, sad times.

This tune came out when I had to let go of my first love, and y `all kno wa the first love means. We had been together for 13 years n I had always believed we would last forever that he was the one.But he had make so many mistakes n gave me so much pain that I had to let go and let it burn.

Usher knows how to bring over his messages!The lyrics you feel it and the music just finished it up.

Meaningful | Reviewer: ama-roux | 5/31/09

This song is so meaningful that i think everybody at one stage or another can relate to its lyrical content...

but it personally reminds me about a relationship i was in back then and i was still in high school when it came out (2004),nw everytm i lstn 2 this song it takes me 4 years back in time... its quite funny coz 5 of my friends were going through the same thing and now when ever we get together for a couple of beers and one fool dicedes to play the song then the will be a long moment of silence... but sometimes u jst gota let it burn u knw....

Burn | Reviewer: Seán | 4/16/09

This reminds me of a girl i use date, was around the time this song came out "2004" i don't know exactly how she felt but i think she felt something similar to this song. It really puts me back in that time when i felt i needed her so bad when ever i hear it, im instantly reminded of her and the good times back then but it also brings back the sadness. Very unique song love the melody its very moody which makes this song have so much feeling to it.

(And yes im a guy so... na na na na to all the girl who say we guys don't get the song) :P

so meaningful | Reviewer: love struck | 2/20/09

i love usher his music speaks to evryone in or out of a relations hip i feel he realli knows how to connect to those goin thru similiar situations. . . there comes a time when evryone has to let at least one relationship burn.

Wow .... | Reviewer: Elizabeth | 4/1/08

Wow. i remember when this song came out. i loved it! then i went through a stage where i was so wrapped up the new music that i forgot the music i really liked.. and the otherday i found all my old cds and im like ooooh ....
i can listen to this song over and over just like me old days hehe

x.

:) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/14/08

I love this song alot. it makes me sad though, my "boy" told me once when we we're in a strange part of our "relationship" that this song was about us.
I just dont know if he meant, letting it go.
Or him making a mistake and wanting me back.

Cause at that stage he made some mistakes,
but i still dont fully understand.

Usher is great, and writes some beautiful, meaningful things.
Its great to listen to a song to understand what it means, even if its not the way everyone else wants it to be heard.


xx
