Burn The Flame is a multi-genre singer songwriter who has spent a lifetime writing and performing original music, until one day he lost his voice completely. After nearly ten years of being unable to sing due to recurring severe throat problems, he finally scheduled surgery to remove a cyst and repair his damaged vocal chords. Less than a week before surgery he was feeling very depressed, and decided to stay home alone and play some songs he used to perform. Convinced he would be unable to sing them he still tried anyways, and to his surprise his singing voice had nearly fully returned. He had tried to sing again many times in the past, but without success. Call it what you want, but he and many others are convinced this was a miracle, and that he has been blessed with a second chance to do the thing he has enjoyed most in his life – to sing and play his original music.

If you are looking for the latest trendy music then this may not be your first album of choice, but if you prefer songs filled with honesty and passion then this may be worth a listen. Burn’s life has taken him to many different places, while facing many different challenges. Although his road has been a long one, he will be the first to tell you that he is blessed by his faith, family, and music.

All songs were written, performed and recorded by Burn, with exception of drums performed by Kyle Duppestadt. The name “Burn The Flame” came from a tribute to Burn’s father who passed away from cancer. It then went on to be a symbol of his faith that he had lost for many years. It is the hope that these songs may bring some peace to those facing difficult challenges in their lives, and bring back some faith in a higher power or purpose than our own.

Please see below what a well-known music reviewer recently wrote about Burn The Flame.

“Listening to Burn The Flame was like visiting an old friend. His vocal style is filled with warmth and recognition of the human soul. With a mixture of pop, rock and christian rock the singer takes you on a personal journey through life and many different feelings. The purpose of music is to create pictures in our mind’s eye and along with that comes a tidal wave of different emotions depending on who you are, your life circumstances and where you are going. Wherever you are or whatever your purpose is, BtF will help you find the way with excellent instrumentation, soaring emotive vocals and heartfelt lyrics.”

Thank you for listening and for taking this journey with me.

God Bless,

Till I See You Again (In Your Arms)

() January 1,1970

Lyrics

The time has come for you now

I see you laying there waiting there
My life has changed so much now
I close my eyes and till they open again

 I can see you there in my mind
I can feel you, you feel so right

And how it’s so unfair
I wish it were me then you’d be here
And maybe just for a while
When you held me near it gave me strength

I can see you there in my mind
I can feel you, you feel so right
I believe in life after life yet
I can’t wait until I see you again

And if I only could just be with you now
I would begin to tell you everything you mean to me
For now there’s only just the memories
I can not wait to see you
Oh will you wait for me

I can see you there in my mind
I can feel you, you feel so right
I believe in life after life yet
I can’t wait until I see you again

Take this child in Your arms
I believe
Please take this child in Your arms
I believe in you
(Repeat)

Take my child in Your arms

Burn The Flame

() January 1,1970

Lyrics

Don’t wanna live in the darkness
Just wanna be in Your light
Don’t wanna drown in a pool of sin
Not here tonight

Lord I know You are tired of hearing my crying
Every time I’m in pain
But if I promised You a thousand times I’d still do it again

There’s people crying, even dying a little more each day
Why don’t they open up their hearts and lives and let You in

If we burn the flame tonight in Your name
I just want You to know how much You mean as we burn the flame

I know some people are trying
But then there’s liars and cheats
There’s braggars with daggars they’re so vicious
With tongues like swords they cut so deep
Some even say that You don’t exist, but I don’t pay them no mind
I can’t imagine a world without You, and I wouldn’t even try

People crying, screaming, fighting, it ain’t getting us nowhere
Why don’t we open up our hearts and we’ll find You there

If we burn the flame tonight in Your name
I just want You to know how much You mean as we burn the flame

Don’t wanna live in the darkness
Just wanna live in Your light
Don’t wanna drown in a pool of sin
Just don’t seem right

Lord I know You are tired of hearing me crying
Every time I’m in pain
But if I promised You a thousand times I’d still do it again

People crying, screaming, fighting, it ain’t getting us nowhere
Why don’t we open up our hearts and we’ll find You there

If we burn the flame tonight in Your name
I just want You to know how much You mean as we burn the flame
Burn The Flame tonight in Your name
I just want You to know how much You mean to we burn the flame

Its Your night Lord
Take a load off
Dim the lights
You’ve had a long day
Now Pour Yourself a glass of wine
Sit in that comfy chair
Think of about nothing just for a while
And behalf of the millions, and millions, and millions and millions and millions of lives You’ve saved we say thank You
And we praise You

If we burn the flame tonight in Your name
I just want You to know how much You mean as we burn the flame
Burn The Flame tonight in Your name
I just want You to know how much You mean to we burn the flame

Burn The Flame!

Lyrics

Same old road, same old pain here we go again
Who can hurt each other the most today
How can I be so alone when you’re right here beside me
Who will be the first to run away

I just hope it’s high enough to forget you
I just hope it’s high enough to never see your pain
Cause baby I can’t take it another day

Say goodbye, isn’t that what you meant
The day you decided it’s time and you left
How can you be you be so alone when you’re right here beside me
It’ll never be the same

I just hope it’s high enough to forget you
I just hope it’s high enough to never see your pain
Cause baby I can’t take it another day

It’s his words I tell you now
There is one life, one love, but most of all there is one God
Believe It, it’s your life now live it
You can run away, or you can run to it
There’s one life, one heart, One.

I just hope it’s high enough to forget you
I just hope it’s high enough to never see your pain
Cause baby I can’t take it another day
I just hope it’s high enough to forget you
I just hope it’s high enough to never see your pain
Never see your pain
Never see my pain
And maybe we can make it another day

Lyrics

Does he make you happy
Or does he make you sad
Does he leave you stranded
And does it drive you mad
Does he turn his back on you
When you need him most do you get it

You can stay forever wait forever for changes
You can pray for better
Just remember you’re dreaming

So you think you’re happy
Who did you think you’d fool to believing that
Do you ever notice he’s not around yeah
Thinks he’s got it all in his hands
If I’m wrong then baby why you keep calling me here
Treating me like your knight in shining armor
I don’t want to intrude on you and your happiness
But he’s got you down and I believe it’s time, time for someone else

You can stay forever wait forever for changes (And they may never come)
You can pray for better
Just remember you’re dreaming
And I can make your dreams come true

I know that you believe him but
I know that you got reasons but you can’t win
And I know that you keep holding on
Tell me girl is it really gonna get better then

You can stay forever wait forever for changes
You can pray for better
Just remember you’re dreaming
And I can make your dreams come true

You Oughta Know

(BtF) June 18,2013

Lyrics

My life just turns like pages in a really bad book
A story with no ending in sight
You said a fool is a man who waits when
There is nothing to come
Could I be waiting forever for your love

And you oughta know by now I’m a strange one
You oughta  know by now I’m afraid
You oughta know I’ll never be the same now

And I said Jesus tell me a story if you’re able
He said do you know when do you remember when you went wrong
But I said people like me they never seem
To get their hopes to reach their dreams without the help from above
And with your love

And you oughta know by now I’m a strange one
You oughta know by now I’m afraid
You oughta know I’ll never be the same now

Was I wrong for taking too many chances
What did I hope to gain by giving you empty promises
I’m alive inside
I must give you thanks for all I have
I’m not alone
I’m not alone this time

And you oughta know by now I’m a strange one
You oughta know by now I’m afraid
You oughta know I’ll never be the same now
I’ll never be afraid now that your the way

I Believe

(BtF) June 18,2013

Lyrics

Do you know me
Can you hear me
Are you really even there
Then why do I feel invisible
What do you want from me
Why do I keep asking all the same things

Everyday I live my life
Searching for the answers why
Still I can’t remember what I’m searching for

I believe
I believe
I believe in you

For there are moments in my life
I’m scared to open up my eyes
Another mountain I must climb today
Now is it too late
Should I just run away
I haven’t given up on you
Don’t give up on me

Everyday I live my life
Searching for the answers why
Still I can’t remember what I’m waiting for

I believe
I believe
I believe in you

What do I want from you
I keep asking myself
What am I ready to give
After all you’ve done for me
I’m gonna give you my life

I believe
I believe
I believe in you

So you know me
Still you love me
Now I know your really there
For I feel you here with me
I feel you here with me
Can you feel him, Lord
I believe, I feel you here with me
Lord, can you feel it
I feel you here with me
I believe, Lord I feel you here with me

Blame It On Myself

(BtF) January 27,2014

Lyrics

So many times I tell myself
I ‘m gonna change I’m gonna better myself
So many times I really think that I believe it

So many days I waste my life
Foolin around and not getting it right
I always do the wrongs things and then believe that

That if I walked into the water and if I fell upon my knees
And if I said the words you’d answer and would you tell me what I need
Lord I know I ask too much but I’m begging you to hear me
I don’t know what to do right now and maybe I’m too weary

I said hey, I blame it on myself
I know what I did and I can’t pin it on nobody else
I said Hey, I gotta change my life
I know I’ve said it before, but that all changes here tonight

Every day that I think I’m better than that
I find I ain’t no better
Knock me down a notch until I see the truth’s alive
I have made so many mistakes time and again for goodness sakes
Why should I hope that for me it would be any better this time

Still I’m trying and I’m trying
I’m even crying out to the rain
But when no one seems to hear me
I think I’m losing it again
Lord please give me shelter for I’m cold and hurt inside
I know I don’t deserve your love or your help this time

I said hey, I blame it on myself
I know what I did and I can’t pin it on nobody else
I said hey, I gotta change my life
I know I said it before, but that all changes here tonight

When I think back on all those times
I turned my back, I’m so ashamed
How can I look into your eyes
All I can say is to save me

I said hey, I blame it on myself
I know what I did and I can’t pin it on nobody else
I said hey, I’ve gotta change my life
I know I said it before, but that all changes here tonight
Repeat to end
