"The Fire" as written by and Tobin Esperance Jacoby Shaddix....
Die a little everyday
Break the silence when you say
You don't love me anymore
In my face you slam the door
Making up, making out
Falling in and falling out
When you kiss me like a stranger
That is when we are in danger

Fly around the fire
In and out of desire
I gotta love you, I gotta have you
Don't want to let you down again

When I kiss you like a lover
That is when we discover
We are burning in the fire
This love will never tire
When I tell you that I need you
Please believe that I won't leave you
You're a diamond I'm a heart
Living in this house of cards

I gotta love you, I gotta have you
Don't want to let you down again

    General CommentI think its about a girl and when they kiss like strangers then they are in danger of not loving each other anymore. He loves her but she doesn't love him anymore.
    Thats just my opinion.

    General CommentI'm not going to lie, the lyrics to this song sounds a bit cheesy. No disrespect, but it does. For example: "You're a diamond I'm a heart living in this house of cards"

    General CommentLove the lyrics, and the story behind it, but the music for it ruins the song for me. Shame...

    General CommentI love this song... the lyrics are (yes) a bit cheesy, but I love them anyways... I love the music... I love his voice in it and stuff. I think I like it because it seems pretty different from their other stuff...

    General CommentCORRECT LYRICS:
    Die a little everyday
    Break the silence when you say
    You don't love me anymore
    In my face you slam the door
    Making up, making out
    Falling in and falling out
    When you kiss me like a stranger
    That is when we are in danger

    Fly around the fire
    In and out of desire
    I gotta love you, I gotta have you
    Don't want to let you down again

    When I kiss you like a lover
    That is when we discover
    We are burning in the fire
    This love will never tire
    When I tell you that I need you
    Please believe that I won't leave you
    You're a diamond I'm a heart
    Living in this house of cards

    Fly around the fire
    In and out of desire
    I gotta love you, I gotta have you
    Don't want to let you down again

    I gotta love you, I gotta have you
    Don't want to let you down again

    Fly around the fire
    In and out of desire
    I gotta love you, I gotta have you
    Don't want to let you down again

    the fire
    In and out of desire
    I gotta love you, I gotta have you
    Don't want to let you down again
    Don't want to let you down again
    Don't want to let you down again
