Live 23 May 1978 version

I'm driving in my car, I turn on the radio
I'm pulling you close, you just say no
You say you don't like it, babe I know you're a liar
'Cause when we kiss, hmm, fire

Well late at night, I'm taking you home
You say you wanna stay, but no you wanna be alone
You say you don't love me, but you can't hide your desire
'Cause when we kiss, hmm, fire

You got a hold on me right from the start
A grip so tight I couldn't tear it apart
My nerves all jumping acting like a fool
Your kisses they burn but baby your heart stays cool

Romeo and Juliet, Samson and Delilah
Baby you can bet their love they didn't deny
Well now your words say split, but baby words they lie
'Cause when we kiss, hmm, fire, fire, fire, fire


The above lyrics are for the live 23 May 1978 performance of FIRE at Shea's Buffalo Theatre in Buffalo, NY, during the Darkness On The Edge Of Town Tour. This was the opening night of the tour.
