  • All my life I've stepped to the rhythm of the drums inside my head
    Longing for the sweet sound of my mama
    Make them all walk this way

    All my life I've stepped to the rhythm of the drums inside my head
    Longing for the sweet sound of my mama
    Make them all walk this way

    There's a light for you, burning for you
    Oh, my mama said
    "It is burning for you
    Oh, don't let it go, oh, don't let it it go
    You'll find a way, baby, make them all burn" (You'll make them all burn)

    I'm a post-teen monster, bold and blind
    From the top of my head to the shaking ground
    Blame the billboards 'cause they've let me down
    I'm a symphony of the world gone wild (What a pretty sight)
    And I spit and I cry for the dirty mind
    It's never really got it, baby, you'll make them all burn)

    But I think about it all the time
    Tough luck, when, oh, will the days come around
    Boy I am thinking 'bout it all the time oh-oh
    (You'll make them all burn)

    All my life I've stepped to the rhythm of the drums inside my head
    Longing for the sweet sound of my mama
    Make them all walk this way

    There's a light for you, burning for you
    Oh, my mama said
    "It is burning for you
    Oh, don't let it go, oh, don't let it it go
    You'll find a way, baby, make them all burn"

    I'm a bug in your eardrum, that's my luck (That's my luck)
    And I won't, won't stop 'til the day I die
    You'll never get my posse and I

    We're a symphony of the world gone wild (What a pretty sight)
    And we long for the place where we can be found
    Burning like a star in our minds (You'll make them all burn)

    But I think about it all the time
    Tough luck, when, oh, will the days come around
    Boy I am thinking 'bout it all the time oh-oh
    (You'll make them all burn)

    Sun rises beyond the sea
    The dead will see and we might stop living

    All my life I've stepped to the rhythm of the drums inside my head
    Longing for the sweet sound of my mama
    Make them all walk this way

    All my life I've stepped to the rhythm of the drums inside my head
    Longing for the sweet sound of my mama
    Make them all walk this way

    There's a light for you, burning for you
    Oh, my mama said
    "It is burning for you
    Oh, don't let it go, oh, don't let it it go
    You'll find a way, baby, make them all burn"

    Sunshine is beyond the sea
    You'll find a way, baby
    Make them all burn

    Sunshine is beyond the sea
    You'll find a way, baby
    Make them all burn Writer/s: Karen Marie Orsted, Ronni Vindahl
