In My Head: “Burn” by Usher

Note: I like this new blog topic, don’t you? Oh, wait, you don’t know what it is yet. Maybe I should tell you, or something. Have you ever heard a song on the radio and while you are singing along with it, you all of a sudden start hearing these snarktastic comments in your head and you’re all, “Whuck? Where did that come from?” No? Huh. Well, enjoy mine!

Today’s Song is: Burn by Usher

No, I don’t own rights to this song. I really hope no one sues me, this is supposed to be humor. Thanks.

Here’s a video so you can listen to the song while you read the below: (My comments are in blue italics beside/under-ish the song lyrics.)

I don’t understand why / See it’s burning me to hold onto this
I know this is something I gotta do /But that don’t mean I want to
Would you just go ahead and pee already, Usher? Geez.
What I’m trying to say is that I-love-you I just / I feel like this is coming to an end
And it’s better for me to let it go now than hold on and hurt you  / I gotta let it burn

[Verse 1]
It’s gonna burn for me to say this / But it’s comin from my heart
You have a STD don’t you?
It’s been a long time coming / But we done been fell apart
Really wanna work this out / But I don’t think you’re gonna change
So….now it’s my fault?  
I do but you don’t / Think it’s best we go our separate ways
Tell me why I should stay in this relationship  / When I’m hurting baby, I ain’t happy baby
Wait…what? I’m sorry this relationship doesn’t revolve around you.  
Plus there’s so many other things I gotta deal with / I think that you should let it burn
What other things do you have to deal with? What does this have to do with me? I don’t think I should listen to you about “letting it burn” because….no, I think I’ll go see a Doctor, thanks.

When your feeling ain’t the same and your body don’t want to
Wait, what? You can’t get it up? What?  
But you know gotta let it go cuz the party ain’t jumpin’ like it used to
I’m not even sure what this means. I thought we were breaking up, not going to a party.
Even though this might bruise you
What, how would this….bruise… Huh?
Let it burn
Let it burn
Gotta let it burn
Once again, I think I should check with a doctor, there, but thanks for the advice.

Deep down you know it’s best for yourself but you
Hate the thought of her being with someone else
So, you don’t want me, but you don’t want anyone else to want me either? That’s healthy.
But you know that it’s over
We know that it’s through
Not sure about “we” there, you ain’t singing a duet, here, dude.
Let it burn
Let it burn
Gotta let it burn

[Verse 2]
Sendin’ pages I ain’t supposed to / Got somebody here but I want you
First, who uses a pager? Second, sucks to be you.
Cause the feelin ain’t the same by myself / Callin’ her your name
That’ll get you in trouble.
Ladies tell me do you understand?
Um, no.
Now all my fellas do you feel my pain?
It’s the way I feel / I know I made a mistake
Now it’s too late / I know she ain’t comin back
What I gotta do now /To get my shorty back
Ooo ooo ooo ooooh
Man I don’t know what I’m gonna do /Without my booo
You’ve been gone for too long  / It’s been fifty-leven days, um-teen hours
Imma be burnin’ till you return (let it burn)
Maybe you shouldn’t have given me that “burning” feeling and I would come back, you a-hole.


Not repeating the chorus. It’s pretty much not deviating from above.

I’m twisted cuz one side of me is tellin’ me that I need to move on
On the other side I wanna break down and cry (ooooh)
I’m twisted cuz one side of me is tellin’ me that I need to move on
On the other side I wanna break down and cry (yeah)
Sucks to be YOU, doesn’t it? I mean, dude, really, if you would’ve kept it in your pants, everything would be good. Geez. Quit whining.

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oooh
Ooh ooh oooh (can ya feel me burnin’?)
Ooh ooh ooh oooh ooh oooh

So many days, so many hours
I’m still burnin’ till you return
GO TO THE DOCTOR! I’m not a doctor and you need a doctor. Dude. Seriously.


There ya go. Enjoy.

You’re welcome.
