Heavy, The - Burn Bright Lyrics




I was walking in the wrong direction
I was walking like a man on a wire
Couldn't keep it for my own protection
Couldn't keep it from the fire
Stayed dead though my heart can't be dead
Stayed dead 'cause my head won't lie
Just waiting for the one salvation
The same one to make it alright

Keep the faith 'cause it's just what you do
I always knew that you'd appear on how

You make this life burn brighter
You make this life burn brighter
You take away my pain
Break me from the chains
To keep us burning brighter

And even when I was building with impatience
Never made it to the mile long mile
Kept busy on the worst locations
And stopped following my ride
'Cause that desk gon' work with the devil
That desk gon' take you for a ride
Be ready for the ramifications
Of being crippled inside

Keep the faith because it's just what you do
I always knew that you'd appear on how

You make this life burn brighter
You make this life burn brighter
You take away my pain
Break me from the chains
To keep us burning brighter

Oh, you make this life burn brighter
You make this life burn brighter
You take away my pain
Break me from the chains
To keep us burning brighter

Oh, you make this life burn brighter
You make, you make this life burn brighter
You take away my pain
Break me out the chains
To keep us burning brighter

Heavy, The Burn Bright Comments
  1. Allistair Twitchell

    I just want a 4th Borderlands game. The games awesome. Non are bad cough cough not including cough pre sequel cough cough

  2. Darrin Scott

    Can't tell if love song... Or Christian song.

  3. ur couzin

    Who the fuck at gearbox thought girl on fire was better than this. Fuck me so dumb.

  4. Jako

    Hoping they use this in brightburn 2 if it ever happens

  5. kuroigetsu

    Especially with how borderlands 3 ending was I think this song woulda synced well with it

  6. Spartan Sneaky Snake

    Omfg this would've made a much better song for the ending of BL3, still fits the Lilith theme because of the burning part

    Goddamn it gearbox it fits her character

    tomasbar

    Joe mom is gay

    whole wheat toast

    @tomasbar who is jomamam

    Dill2399 Sanchez

    whole wheat toast hol up

    Christopher Tidwell

    BLOOD FEUUUUD!!!!!!

    Allistair Twitchell

    toast  shut the fuk up

  7. Patrick Enger

    God the piano in this song is fucking exemplary.

  8. TailsFurScales

    *Spoilers*


    They should have had this at the end of Borderlands 3. Still have "Put it on the Line" at the beginning but having this at the end as well? It would have matched so well and been a bit better than the song they used at the end.

    Ethen Brown

    I believe trouble the song played at the credits would've been a better fit especially considering cage the elephants's no rest was in the first and trouble references no rest

    The Name's Rusty

    I decided to play borderlands 3 all the way through then play "Burn Bright" at the end, because why not?

    DaBlackCherry

    @Juan B. I love that you say you know who for ppl like me who are too broke to get the game and are waiting till Black Friday 😂 thanks for not spoiling

    Henksutin

    A "bit" better? Lol..

    Allistair Twitchell

    @devinacho possibly because they only used Heavy songs for 3 of the games

  9. ReiGnJuste

    Amazing song

  10. Kevin Lalach

    I dont mind what they picked for the credits song of BL3 but i think this would have fit 10x better

    Aniruddha Das

    yeah,it even has "fire" in it.

  11. Bob Ross

    Wow this really bops

  12. Wavelength

    Disappointed that this wasn't the ending song for Borderlands 3 :(. Would've fit well given what happened in the ending.

    Luke lagoon

    Honestly, it would and it should've been. This song would've gone better with the ending than the "girl on fire" song.

  13. Tony R. Smith

    Outstanding Guy's Keep Kick in it!!!

  14. UntitledHero 7

    Ever since Borderlands 2, I wanted to hear everything by these awesome people

  18. Atallah Anouar

    I was walking in the wrong direction
    I was walking like a man on a wire
    Couldn't keep it for my own protection
    Couldn't keep it from the fire
    Stayed dead though my heart can't be dead
    Stayed dead 'cause my head won't lie
    Just waiting for the one salvation
    The same one to make it alright

    Keep the faith 'cause it's just what you do
    I always knew that you'd appear on how

    You make this life burn brighter
    You make this life burn brighter
    You take away my pain
    Break me from the chains
    To keep us burning brighter

    And even when I was building with impatience
    Never made it to the mile long mile
    Kept busy on the worst locations
    And stopped following my ride
    'Cause that desk gon' work with the devil
    That desk gon' take you for a ride
    Be ready for the ramifications
    Of being crippled inside

    Keep the faith because it's just what you do
    I always knew that you'd appear on how

    You make this life burn brighter
    You make this life burn brighter
    You take away my pain
    Break me from the chains
    To keep us burning brighter

    Oh, you make this life burn brighter
    You make this life burn brighter
    You take away my pain
    Break me from the chains
    To keep us burning brighter

    Oh, you make this life burn brighter
    You make, you make this life burn brighter
    You take away my pain
    Break me out the chains
    To keep us burning brighter

  26. BulkSimpson

    The Heavy releases a song right before PAX East. Interesting coincidence. I don't think this will be the song for BL3, but I also wouldn't be surprised, nor would I be disappointed.

    Lakoko Chan

  51. estelle pannell

    your music makes us burn brighter. chain gang sound....⬆️⬆️👑COME TO DALLAS TEXAS..PLEEEASE

  52. Dec vs Japan

    Thing about The Heavy songs are that they can literally be listened to in any situation and they fit perfectly. Cup of coffee in Starbucks, windows down and driving down the lanes, chilling with a beer in the garden, funerals.... [Can't Play Dead]

    Steven

    Starbuck boy and starbuck girl presents... Star Bucks

    Will Carrillo

    Riding your bike through traffic not giving a fuck ... 😎

  66. Luan Hii

    I was walking in the wrong direction
    I was walking like a man on a wire
    Couldn't keep it for my own protection
    Couldn't keep it from the fire
    Stayed dead though my heart can't be dead
    Stayed dead 'cause my head won't lie
    Just waiting for the one salvation
    The same one to make it alright

    Keep the faith 'cause it's just what you do
    I always knew that you'd appear on how

    You make this life burn brighter
    You make this life burn brighter
    You take away my pain
    Break me from the chains
    To keep us burning brighter

    And even when I was building with impatience
    Never made it to the [?]
    Kept busy on the worst locations
    And stopped following my [?]
    'Cause that desk [?]
    That desk gon' take you for a ride
    Be ready for the ramifications
    Of being crippled and [?]

    Keep the faith because it's just what you do
    I always knew that you'd appear on how

    You make this life burn brighter
    You make this life burn brighter
    You take away my pain
    Break me from the chains
    To keep us burning brighter

    Oh, you make this life burn brighter
    You make this life burn brighter
    You take away my pain
    Break me from the chains
    To keep us burning brighter

    Oh, you make this life burn brighter
    You make, you make this life burn brighter
    You take away my pain
    Break me out the chains
    To keep us burning brighter
