Burn The Flame (TM) is a multi-genre singer songwriter who has spent a lifetime writing and performing original music. He brings passion and honesty to all his music, and we thank you for joining him on his musical journey.

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, recorded and produced by Burn. 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.”
— Keith “MuzikMan” Hannaleck, MuzikReviews.com

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

God Bless,
Burn (BtF)

Broken Man

() January 1,1970

Lyrics

Another day another mistake
How many more can one man make
I lost track along the way

Another night that ain’t gone right
Fighting through till the morning light
I guess I’m meant to be alone

For even when I try to change
Something always in my way
I don’t blame you for what I’m saying

So tell me now
Lord, Can you heal this broken man
Can you heal this broken man

These are the seeds from the sow we reap
Let us get down on our knees and weep
Beg for life and second chances

For even when I think of running away
Something always makes me stay
Pulling me back to your love and forgiveness

So tell me now
Lord, Can you heal this broken man
Can you heal this broken man
Lord, Can you heal this broken man

Do you believe
Only you know what going on inside you
You and i know the truth
Do you see
It’s just a matter of time before he finds you
Either believe or don’t believe

Another night that ain’t gone right
Fighting through till the morning light
I guess I just need to be alone
I can’t stand it one more day
Help me Lord I died today
Maybe its all the best if I’m gone

So tell me now
Lord, Can you heal this broken man
Can you heal this broken man
Lord, Can you heal this broken man

Don’t Give Up On Me

() January 1,1970

Lyrics

Do you know me
Can you hear me
Why do I feel invisible
Can you hear me
I keep asking you the same things
What do you want from me
Please tell me now

Everyday I live my life
Searching for the answers why
Still I can’t remember why I fail

I believe in You
I believe in You

I fall back, to my bad ways (on my bad ways) yeah
Why didn’t I feel nothin at all
D on’t come near me, ah
I keep telling you the same lies
What do you want from me
Am I just a bad man in disguise?

Everyday I live my life
Searching for the answers why

I believe in You
I believe in You

I must confess there are moments in life
I’m too scared to open up my eyes
Can’t face another mountain, nor climb it today
Now is it too late should I run away
I haven’t given up on you today
Lord I’m begging you please don’t give up on me
For everyday I live my life
Searching for the answers why
Till I discover just what you came here for

I believe in You
I believe in You

Don’t Give Up On Me (fade)

Change The World

() January 1,1970

Lyrics

Pretty much what’s going on my friend
Take a minute and I’ll tell you the rest of the story
Ain’t got no time for grand philosophy|
I can barely keep my head above the tide

See I got this house and I got these kids
And the truth it troubles me inside
I’d change the world if I could change my mind
If I could live beyond these fears
Be wise beyond my years
I’d trade it all for a little security

Give it all for a little laughter
These days have been filled with tears

See I got this house and I got these kids
And the truth it troubles me inside
Tonight

Change the World (Improv to end)*

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

It’s Our Love

() January 1,1970

Lyrics

I don’t know where you are tonight
I don’t know how it ends
I don’t who’s wrong or right
It don’t even matter

If only you my dear could just see what were throwing away
It’s our love we’re tearing apart, yet we won’t change
It’s our love

You don’t know where I am tonight
Do you know how this ends?
I only ask one more time
Please don’t leave this way

If only you my dear could just see what were throwing away
Our love we keep tearing apart, for we don’t change
It’s our love

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

I Believe

() January 1,1970

Lyrics

Do you know me
Can you hear me
Are you really even there
Then why do I feel invisible to you
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 completely
Oh don’t you 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

Because I believe
I believe
I believe in you

So you know me
Still you love me
Now I know your really there
For I can feel you here with me
I can feel you here with me
Lord I can feel you here with me
