"Burn" by Ellie Goulding
         I'm going to take several lines from Ellie Goulding's song "Burn" and start a poem from my own words added. I am going to italicize her words.

We don't have to worry about nothing;
What a wonderful thought to have.
We'll burn one hell of a something;
It's our time to take a turn.

They're gonna see us from outer space;
Let's take time to set the pace.
Raising our hands, shining it up to the sky,
Raise them up and don't ask why.

We don't want to leave;
Let's cleave to each other.
Soothe out the edges of life's domain;
And smooth them over with a four leaf clover.

We just want to be right now;
Take a flight to see the sights.
When the lights started down,
We were guarded by love.

We got the fire fire fire;
It's the perfect time to join the choir.
Giving love to the world,
Shows approval from above.

We can light it up up up;
It's about time to get a pup.
I'll burn it out out out;
It's a good time not to doubt or pout.
They'll know what they heard,
When they get a good word.

         Ellie Goulding did an excellent job with her song "Burn" in the video. It made me feel good to hear the music. Giving love to the world is very good; this is the way that it should be. We can light up the fire, not forgetting to burn it out.
