Burn It Up

  • Lyrics
  • There's no need for talkin'
    When you're walkin' out the door
    There's no need for shoutin'
    'cause you'll only be ignored
    What's the point of fightin'
    You already lost the war
    Give it up! Give it up!
    You won't hurt me anymore

    There's no need to hide it everybody saw your face
    Don't even make excuses I won't make the same mistake
    There ain't nothin' you can do, there's nothin' left to say
    Give it up! Give it up!
    Doesn't matter T's too late

    Took the sheets n tore 'em up,
    With all the pictures of us
    This is for the times you kept me waitin'
    Piled up everythin' you got,
    With some kerosene on top
    This is what you get for my heart breakin'

    Burn it up, Burn it up, Burn it up
    Boy that's what you did to my love
    Burn it up, Burn it up, Burn it up
    Boy that's what you did to my love

    Sheriff understand,
    I had a man who wouldn't change
    Always left me cryin' every time he went away
    I know what he was doin',
    But it took awhile to say
    That's enough! That's enough!
    Now were doin' things my way

    Took the sheets n tore 'em up, with all the pictures of us
    This is for the times you kept me waitin'
    Piled up everythin' you got, with some kerosene on top
    This is what you get for my heart breakin'

    Burn it up, Burn it up, Burn it up
    Boy that's what you did to my love
    Burn it up, Burn it up, Burn it up
    Boy that's what you did to my love

    You made your bed, now watch it burn
    All up in flames, a lesson learned
    You only got what you deserved
    The roof is on fire

    Took the sheets n tore 'em up,
    With all the pictures of us
    This is for the times you kept me waitin'
    Piled up everythin' you got,
    With some kerosene on top
    This is what you get for my heart breakin'

    Burn it up, Burn it up, Burn it up
    Boy that's what you did to my love
    Burn it up, Burn it up, Burn it up
    Boy that's what you did to my love

    Boy it's what you did to my love
    Boy it's what you did to my heartWriter/s: SAVAN KOTECHA, JULIAN BUNETTA, JESSIE JAMES
