​Burnin' On a Higher Flame

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the compilation album Loose Monkeys (1999).

The night falls dark around me, and the dogs bark out a curse
A bad dreams twist inside me and I scream for a doctor or a nurse

But I'm just dyin' for morning, watch the sun rise like a pearl
Just to feel the breath of your life as your smile lights up the world

And I'm burnin' on a higher flame, burning' on a higher flame
Burning' on a higher flame, burning' on a higher flame
Oh hoo burnin, burnin

A lot of things in this world make a man fall down and cry
The hell hound's on my trail, and the mighty rivers run dry
But now I know you're with me, I stand above it all
And take the pain they give me, make it nothing like a pain at all

And I'm burnin' on a higher flame, burning' on a higher flame
Burning' on a higher flame, burning' on a higher flame
Oh hoo burnin, burnin

And I'm burnin' on a higher flame, burning' on a higher flame
Burning' on a higher flame, burning' on a higher flame
Oh hoo burnin, burnin

Yes I'm burnin, burnin then
Burnin, Burnin, Burnin, Burnin
