Burning

This song is by The War on Drugs and appears on the album Lost In The Dream (2014) and on the movie soundtrack Paper Towns (2015).

This song is featured in the movie Paper Towns.
On a drive I'm taking backroads
High against where the rivers are flowing
I didn't think that our love had gone
You had me dead to rights
Hey, I'm trying to get some rest
To keep on moving

How you been, you looking back?
You tried to change your burning boat
Until you realized what you were up against
I spent all those nights
Just trying to take you home
'Til you released me

Cross the bridge
To redefine your pain
Then the answer is in your heart
Wide awake
I rearrange the way I listen in the dark
Dreaming of starting up again

So if you look, you'll find yourself
You're not the demon in the dark
That you and I, yea we'd been through that
Can you rectify
All the time it took you
Away from choosing?

So as you find yourself flying high up there
When you release me from your heart again (woo!)
I'm just a burning man trying to keep the ship
From turning over again

Cross the rich derivative of pain
Crush the burning in your heart
Wide awake
To redefine the way you listen in the dark
Dreaming, starting
Like a stranded kid in a doorway
Just burning

Yeah we turn the light on
