Do you wanna be a poet and write 
Do you wanna be an actor up in lights 
Do you wanna be a soldier and fight for love
Do you wanna travel the world 
Do you wanna be a diver for pearls 
Or climb a mountain and touch the clouds above

Be anyone you want to be
 Bring to life your fantasies 
But I want something in return 

I want you to burn
Burn for me baby 
Like a candle in my night 
Oh burn
Burn for me burn for me

Are you gonna be a gambler and deal
Are you gonna be a doctor and heal
Or go to heaven and touch God's face
Are you gonna be a dreamer who sleeps 
Are you gonna be a sinner who weeps 
Or an angel under grace 

I'll lay down on your bed of coals 
 Offer up my heart and soul
But in return 

I want you to burn 
Burn for me baby 
Like a candle in my night 
Oh burn
Burn for me burn for me

 Laugh for me, cry for me
Pray for me, fly for me
Live for me, die for me

I want you to burn
Burn for me baby
Like a candle in my night 
Oh burn
Burn for me burn for me
