"Buildin' More Fires" as written by and Joe Ely....
When I first met her she had fire in her eyes
There was more to that flame than I did realize
Her love was wild and crazy, there's not a flicker of doubt
She's been buildin' more fires than she's been puttin' out

The party lights were warm and bright
The wine made feelings glow
She told me that she loved me, I believed her so
The way she looked her men over I could really do without
She's been buildin' more fires than she's been puttin' out

Buildin' more fires?to fulfill her desires
Flames spreadin', burnin' my insides out
Buildin' more fires, higher and higher
Buildin' more fires than she's been puttin' out

Love's never certain, it takes some funny turns
At times it seems you see the smoke before you feel the burn
I wrote farewell on matchbook covers
I heard a thing about
She's been buildin' more fires than she's been puttin' out

Buildin' more fires, to fulfill her desires
Flames spreadin', burnin' my insides out
Buildin' more fires
Higher and higher
Buildin' more fires than she's been putting out

She's been buildin' more fires
Than she's been puttin' out

She's been buildin' more fires
Than she's been puttin' out
