"Forest Fire" as written by Al Dubin and Harry Warren....
She crossed herself as she put on her things
She has promised once before not to live this way
If she don't calm down she will burn herself out
Like a forest fire, well doesn't that make you smile

If you don't slow down, I swear that I'll come round
And mess up your place, let's go for a spin
They say we shouldn't even know each other
And that we'll be undone
Don't it make you smile like a forest fire

I believe in love, I'll believe in anything
That's gonna get me what I want and get me off my knees
Then we'll burn your house down, don't it feel so good
There's a forest fire every time we get together

Hey pick you up, put you down
Rip you up and spin you round
Just like we said we would
'Cause we're a forest fire
Believe you me, we'll tear this place down

If we get caught in this wind, then we could burn the ocean
If we get caught in this scene, we're gonna be undone
It's just a simple metaphor
It's for a burning love
Don't it make you smile like a forest fire

    General CommentAs the song says: "It’s just a simple metaphor, it’s for a burning love". Two destructive personalities who fall giddily in love. It's fantastic how he describes a feeling that anything is possible:-

    "cause we’re a forest fire believe you me, we’ll tear this place down. If we get caught in this wind, then we could burn the ocean".

    A fantastic song!

    General CommentI just realised that it was not only in lyrics that is the meaning but also in the music wich brought me today a deep and beautyfull orgasm. A bit like a fire inside, a forest fire indeed
