We’ll Burn the Sky…

with one comment

So I guess it was around 2000 when my best friend Daniel and I went to see DIO, Deep Purple and the Scorpions at the Va Beach Amphitheater. I think I had scored some free tix from someone and they were grass passes. It was a great show all in all. Doug Aldrich was a badass for DIO, Deep Purple was better than expected and I was all excited when they played Perfect Strangers.

But…the highlight of the night was when the Scorpions played “We’ll Burn the Sky.” When Klaus Meine announced that they were going to go back and play and old song, I expected some like “Loving You Sunday Morning” or something else from Lovedrive. Much to our surprise, he announced We’ll Burn the Sky. Daniel and I stood up and cheered along with about 5 other people it seemed. Obviously most of the Scoprions fans there wanted to just hear stuff from Love At First Sting.

This is one of my all time faves from them. They always wrote such great love songs/ballads and this one simply rules.

The song seems to be about his girl who died.

I’m in love with the sunshine
I’m in love with the falling rain
Everything seems to call your name
Yesterday, you were leavin’
Leavin’ life and all the pain
Everything wants you back again

I’ve found myself through you
And there was love in my life
I felt always naturally high
And my love had a home
But now my mind has started to roam
You’re my life-giving fire
And you carry all my love
Through you I was so inspired

You’re engraved deep in my heart
My dreams recall us being one
I’ve searched for you to be free
My force of life you have always been
I feel blue since you’ve gone
Your breath of love surrounded me
When can I rejoin you to be free
Wait, can this be a dream

There is a voice in my head
It belongs to you, it says
Don’t cry no need to be sad
There’s a way to stay with you again
It’s more than you ever had
And no death brings us apart
Our timeless love always grows
Because you are my other heart

I know we’ve never been apart
Your love sets fire to my heart

We’ll Burn The Sky
When it’s timeFor me to die!
We’ll Burn The Sky
Oh YeahWe’ll Burn The Sky
Oh YeahWhen it’s time to die
We’ll Burn The Sky
We’ll Burn The Sky

  1. A good line-up, and a great song to hear live. If they played it on the Blackout tour, that’d be the last time I heard them lay it.
