Two people together, they spend the night,
She says "I don't want this to be a flash in the pan,
A flash in the pan that is my life.
Let's sustain the passion."
And it burns, it burns like fire.

Two weeks later, everything is fine.
But there's a sore where there should not be.
The doctor says, "How does it feel when you pee?"
He says, "It burns..."

And it burns, it burns like fire.
I don't know where I'm going to go,
Where I'll end up, I don't know.
But I've got a head start, I got a fire in my heart.
And it burns, it burns like fire.

Next I go to her balcony.
I just want to read her some of my poetry.
She says, "I like you and all,
But my girlfriend's coming down the hall."
Oh, that burns...

And it burns, it burns like fire.

So as I turn away, I resolve to return the very next day.
She curses and closes the window,
I go to the car to get the gas and my zippo.
Her house burns...

And it burns, it burns like fire.
I don't don't know where I'm going to go,
Where I'll end up, I don't know.
But I've got a head start, I got a fire in my heart.
And it burns, it burns like fire.

She looks up at me with eyes so blue.
I say "Why? How can this be true?"
We fuss and fight cause we're young,
We got fire on our tounge,
And it burns...

And it burns, it burns like fire.

As I head out to the parking lot,
It seems once again I missed Cupid's shot,
I get ready for a big fall,
I got built up too tall,
And it burns...

And it burns, it burns like fire.
I don't don't know where I'm going to go,
Where I'll end up, I don't know.
But I've got a head start, I got a fire in my heart
And it burns, it burns like fire.

    General CommentA guy got the drip from a girl he liked and she didn't like him back. He had un-protected sex with her and now he has a constant reminder of how he didnt use a condom. These cats are all about some safe sex. I went to a Murphy's Kids show and they were handing out condoms with a little message on it that said "wrap it up or pack it up", no joke. This song is so freaking sweet live.
