VITAMIN Z - BURNING FLAME

Hello and welcome back... Love this track.

UK band 'Vitamin Z' released this song back in 1985 and it was from the album 'Rights of Passage'.
What i like about this track is its raw emotion, starts with the stunning metallic sound of a particular guitar (its the black one with no end bits) and then the vocals of Geoff Barradale kick in. This guy has an amazing voice. 
The bass guitarist is Nick Lockwood.
Then there's the video... Pretty girl once went out with the lead singer but now goes out with the bass guitarist, Bass guitarist doesn't know about this but soon works out that the song their playing is about the same girl... You can feel the tension as the bass player glances at the singer and the girl and eventually walks off not too impressed... Kinda like a slippery love triangle... genius.

VITAMIN Z - BURNING FLAME  (1985)



LYRICS

Walking out tonight
In the street lights I can see you,
Arm in arm with just another guy,
You look at me and wave hello, how friendly
I look at you and the cars go passing by.

I understand that you used to love me,
Nothing much but it made you cry,
So here we are making pleasant gestures,
And I just can't see the reason why.

Me and you we never made it far girl,
Now I laugh at the promises we made,
And something went
The first time that I hurt you,
The lights went out
And the memories start to fade.

And all along on my trip to nowhere,
You annoyed me with your foolish games,
And how you teased when I first made love,
And I'm left so naked like a burning flame,
Burning flame, burning flame.

And all along on my trip to nowhere,
You annoyed me with your foolish games,
And how you teased when I first made love,
And I'm left so naked like a burning flame,
Burning flame, burning flame.

I felt the earth fall apart and crumble,
All my dreams down they fell,
And would an angel show mercy to the devil,
But you're under my skin and you know darn well.

Walking out tonight in the street lights I can see you
Arm in arm with just another guy,
You look at me and wave hello-how friendly,
I look at you and the cars go passing by.

And all along on my trip to nowhere,
You annoyed me with your foolish games,
And how you teased when I first made love,
And I'm left so naked like a burning flame,
Burning flame, burning flame.

And all along on my trip to nowhere,
You annoyed me with your foolish games,
And how you teased when I first made love,
And I'm left so naked like a burning flame,
Burning flame, burning flame.
