"House Of Fire" as written by Desmond Child, Joan Jett and Alice Cooper....
House of fire
House of fire, yeah
Let's build a house of fire, baby
Not one of wood or stone
Walk through my door of desire, baby
Come on in and make it your home
Don't need a window to watch you, baby
Don't need no roof overhead
Don't need no key to unlock ya, baby
I'll use my lovin' instead
I won't tire
Take me higher

Building a house of fire, baby
Buildin' it with our love
We are buildin' a house of fire every time we touch
House of fire
House of fire

We ain't gotta pay rent now, baby
No landlord to throw us out
I want to play in your garden, baby
When you want to give me a shout
I won't tire
Take me higher

Building a house of fire, baby
Buildin' it with our love
We are buildin' a house of fire every time we touch
We are building this house together, baby
Standing on solid ground
We are building a house of fire that you can't tear down

Brick by brick the flames get higher
Build it strong with our desire

Building a house of fire, baby
Building it with our love
We are building a house of fire every time we touch
Baby we are
We are building this house together, baby
Standing on solid ground
We are building a house of fire that you can't tear down
Building a house of fire, baby
Building it with our love
We are building a house of fire every time we touch
We are building this house together baby
Staning on solid ground
We are building a house of fire that you can't burn down

    General CommentI've always loved the absurdity of "brick by brick the flames get higher"! Cool song - OK, HOT song. But can we have an eternal ban on rhyming "fi-yurr" & "de-si-yurr"?

    General CommentEssentially this song is about consturcting a house of fire. Not one of wood or stone.

    General CommentEssentially, as are many of Alice's songs in one way or another... it's about sex.
    "Walk through my door of desire baby"
    "Building it with our love"
    "Building a house of fire every time we touch"
    and of course
    "I want to play in your garden, baby, When you want it give me a shout"

    General CommentIt's just about a great sexual relationship. Like most rock songs from the 80s it's a great song, but not too much depth to the lyrics (which isn't a bad thing, rock music is meant to be fun after all!)
