LyricsEdit

Lyrics


Verse 1:

I'm a brand new man, I'm a conscious man

I'm a man who's burnin' for you

The mistakes I've made have been chased away to the bottom of the ocean blue

I'm a brand new man in a foreign land, I'm a man who's feelin' that fire

And it's all so clear when I'm standing here at the peak of my desire


So won't you move me like you used to

I want the world to know I burn for you

Chorus:

I feel revived again, I am alive again

(Burnin' for you) You got me lifted and lifted you lift me up

I feel revived again, I'm energized again

(Burnin' for you) You got me lifted and lifted you lift me up

Verse 2:

Woke up in a sweat, those ghosts in my head

Had a grip, but I slipped on by

It's a whole new day as the darkness fades

And the sun's climbing in the sky

I concede, my love, that I need your love

I'm before you, a broken man

And it's only you, no substitutes who can renew this soul again


So won't you move me like you used to

I want the world to know I burn for you

Chorus:

I feel revived again, I am alive again

(Burnin' for you) You got me lifted and lifted you lift me up

I feel revived again, I'm energized again

(Burnin' for you) You got me lifted and lifted you lift me up

Bridge:

You got me higher than Kilimanjaro

Got me believin' I can "save the day"

I'm up and running like their ain't no tomorrow

I'd rather burn for you than fade away

I'd rather burn for you than go my way


I'm a whole new guy with a whole new vibe

Changed inside - more flame in the fire

Can't stop, won't stop praying for desire

Like the bunny on the screen feel so energized

Old shell gone without a trace, new face

No more shortness of breath, new pace

Live life now without the taste of fear

TobyMac, Double Dutch now let the smoke clear
