Burn - The Cure
By: changeofseasons

This song is from The Crow soundtrack, and is one of the best songs ever. The song is all 
with a clean tone. Enjoy!

[Intro] At 58 seconds, the guitar kicks in. The part below is played twice.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------3-------------------5-------------------------------------------|
G|--------0-------------------0----------------------------------------------| Part one
D|-----3-------------------5-------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

[Verse 1] - no guitar, chorus - part one played twice, verse 2 - part one played 3 times

The next chorus is part 1 played twice, then going into part two below twice.
e|-------------------------------3-------------------------------------------|
B|-----------3----------------1----------------------------------------------|
G|--------0----------------2-------------------------------------------------| Part Two
D|-----3---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Now comes the solo. The first part is repeated five times.

e|------------5--5--3----------5--5--3----------5--5--3-----1--1--0--1--3----|
B|------3--3-------------1--1------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------3--3-------------------------------| Solo 1
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The third time, a second guitar kicks in, playing this 8 times.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----9-----10---------------9--10------------------------------------------| Solo 2
D|------------------8-----------------8--------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Another verse, with part one played once. Then the final chorus, with part one played 
twice, and part two played twice. Part two is repeated twice more for the shouting of 
"Every night I burn, scream the animal scream/dream the crow black dream!". Then the 
outro, with solo two and part two played over each other a few times. And then that's it!

Here's the lyrics for reference:
THE CURE - Burn

[Verse 1]
"Don't look, don't look", the shadows breathe,
Whispering me away from you,
"Don't wake an eye to watch her sleep,
And know that you will always sleep."

This trembling drone
Dazzled burn like gold

[Chorus 1]
Everynight I burn,
Everynight I call your name,
Everynight I burn,
Everynight I fall again.

[Verse 2]
"Don't talk of love", the shadows burn,
Murmuring me away from you,
"Don't talk of worlds that never were:
The end is all that's ever true.
There's nothing you can ever say;
Nothing you can ever do."

[Chorus 2]
Still, everynight I burn,
Everynight I scream your name,
Everynight I burn,
Evernight the dream's the same.
Everynight I burn,
Waiting for my only friend,
Enerynight I burn,
Waiting for the world to end.

(solo here)

[Verse 3]
"Just paint your face", the shadows smile,
Slipping me away from you,
"It doesn't matter how you hide,
We'll find you if we're wanting to.
So slide back down and close your eyes,
Sleep awhile you must be tired."

[Final chorus]
Everynight I burn,
Everynight I call your name,
Everynight I burn,
Everynight I fall again.
Everynight I burn,
And scream the animal scream,
Everynight I burn,
And dream the crow-black dream,
Everynight I burn,
Scream the animal scream!
Everynight I burn,
Dreaming the crow-black dream!

[Outro]

Doesn't have the chords which play slightly distorted with the bass, but that's ok, I know the bass to this song ^__^
