"Fire And Ice" as written by Tom Kelly, Scott Sheets and Pat Giraldo....
Ooh, you're givin' me the fever tonight
I don't want to give in
I'd be playin' with fire
You forget, I've seen you work before
Take 'em straight to the top
Leave 'em cryin' for more
I've seen you burn 'em before

Fire and ice
You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
I want to give you my love
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart

You'll just tear it apart

Movin' in for the kill tonight
You got every advantage when they put out the lights
It's not so pretty when it fades away
'Cause it's just an illusion in this passion play
I've seen you burn 'em before

Fire and ice
You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
I want to give you my love
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart

So you think you got it all figured out
You're an expert in the field, without a doubt
But I know your methods inside and out
And I won't be takin' in by fire and ice

Fire and ice
You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
I want to give you my love
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart

You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
I want to give you my love
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart

You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice

You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice

    General CommentWow...no one's posted for this song? There's no doubt she's had several HUGE hits, MOST of them having been played to death on the radio. This little gem definitely shows Pat and Neil at the top of their game. Pat's voice is AMAZING!!! She could easily have been a Heavy Metal vocalist. In this song in particular she pushes her voice to it's limit (listen to the way she pushes her breath out at the end of the chorus each time - after she says "Ice"), it almost sounds like she's sobbing at the end of the chorus.

    It's a very passionate song, after all...I mean most of us have been in this sort of relationship, at some point in our lives, the kind that burns so bright hot, but goes cold just as quickly. And sadly enough, usually only one person is really hurt by the whole "affair". This song of course being from the viewpoint of the "victim".

    And yes I do understand she's talking about a "player" taking advantage...but remember even though we're playing or being played we are still having ALOT of fun when things are HOT, not so much when things are cold. PAT RAWKS!!!

    General Comment I love this song- it has a great guitar solo, and she's talking about how he's hot for her one day, and cold for her the next.

    My InterpretationIt's about a relationship that gets hot one minute, but then turns cold.
