Burn - Ellie Goulding

The Experience:
Break the darkness, strike the match, ignite love. Our hearts blaze out, shining up to the sky and to the world. Against the night, we're the stars of the human race. Love = light. Let it burn, burn, burn.

Music Video:
Young people break chains and escape onto Ellie's airstrip. As night falls, they bring out lights and flares that break the darkness. Love is brighter.  

My Take:
A life without loving is dark loneliness. True love is better and brighter than the stars. God gave us love to bring light to the world. 

Ask Yourself:
Love = light... How much light am I bringing into other people's lives? How much love do I give to others?

LYRICS:


We, we don't have to worry 'bout nothing
'Cause we got the fire, and we're burning one hell of a something
They, they gonna see us from outer space, outer space
Light it up, like we're the stars of the human race, human race

When the light's turning down, they don't know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We'll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
'Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

We don't wanna leave, no, we just wanna be right now,r-r-right now
And what we see, is everybody's on the floor acting crazy getting loco til the lights out
Music's on, I'm waking up, we stop the vibe, and we bump it up
And it's over now, we got the love, there's no secret now, no secret now

When the light's turning down, they don't know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We'll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
'Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

When the light's turning down, they don't know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world

We gonna let it burn burn burn burn
Burn burn

Burn burn burn burn
Burn burn

We can light it up, up, up
So they can't put it out, out, out
We can light it up, up, up
So they can't put it out, out, out
We can light it up, up, up
So they can't put it out, out, out
We can light it up, up, up
So they can't put it out, out, out

When the light's turning down, they don't know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We'll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
'Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

When the light's turning down, they don't know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We'll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
'Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn
