Jim Loftus: MP3 Samples

Burn The Candle At Both Ends

(Jim Loftus)
Jim Loftus

This track from "The Fame Game" is the only one not recorded in the 2000 era of the sessions--this one goes back to 1993 and was recorded in 2-3 hours on a Sunday for a Monday deadline for a WZZO(Z-95) "Battle Of the Bands" competition. With Kjell Benner on bass, and two guys from prominent bands from the Philly area at the time on guitar and drums, this song stands the test of time as a true rocker..enjoy!

Baby, baby, don't you know I feel you when I'm dreamin'

 Baby, baby, I can feel our love flow like a river streamin'

I understand what you're feelin', I know the cards you've been dealin'

You know we're so much in sync it's like I know what you think You take me right to the brink

 

Baby, baby, don't you know you bring me to the mountain

Baby, baby, won't you let me drink now from your fountain

Feels like a fatal attraction, I want a piece of the action

Let's push it right to the floor just when we think there's no more

We'll just be starting to soar

 

CHORUS:

I wanna tell the world how much I love ya baby

Shout from the rooftops how your love has finally saved me

There ain't no woman holds a candle to ya baby so let's

Burn the candle at both ends, see how our love spends

Burn the candle at both ends

 

I understand what you're feelin', I know the cards you've been dealin'

You know we're so much in sync it's like I know what you think

You take me right to the brink (repeat chorus)

 

Baby, baby, don't you know I feel you when I'm dreamin'...
