FIRE

Outtake version


[Spoken intro:] ???, alright, here we go.

One, two, three, four

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

Late at night when I'm taking you home
I just wanna stay, you say you wanna be alone
You say you don't need me, but baby I know you're a liar
'Cause when we kiss, hmm, fire, fire
???

Well I need a lover to hold me tight
When I don't wanna leave ???
??? you, girl
???

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

Late at night when I'm taking you home
You're standing at the door, just wanna be alone
Well baby you say you don't need me, but honey I know you're a liar
'Cause when we kiss, hmm, fire, fire
Big Man

Well I'm keeping your loving in a ???
???
??? down
Baby well I need you too much o-o

I'm driving in my car, I turn on the radio
I'm pulling you close, you just say no
And when you say you don't love me, girl I know you're a liar
'Cause when we kiss, hmm, fire
Oh when we kiss, hmm, fire
Oh when we kiss, hey-hey-hey, fire
