"Fuego!" as written by and Harris Solanki....
She walked with fire at her heels
The scent of smoke on the breeze
Wherever she goes that's where I'll be
Whatever she wants that's what I need
Baby, it's been so long that even the roses hips are turning me on
Baby, it's been so long

I want you
I want you

The heat floats on top of our skin
Like an ice cube in a glass of gin
I can't even hear the words you say
I need to leave, but I want to stay
Baby, it's been so long that even the roses hips are turning me on
Baby, it's been so long

I want you
I want you
I get the feeling if I stay with you
You'll never let me go
I want you

Feel like a ship on dry land
Or an island in the sand
Your kiss is cool, despite the heat
You've got my senses beat
If I stay, I won't last long
You've got a hold on me so strong
I hear your song
All I hear is your song
It's so hot
The bones show through our skin
It's so hot
That the bones show through our skin

    General CommentMy god this is a good one... LOVE it.

    I really feel like the narrator of this song is doing his best to break free of a bad relationship, but is being drawn back in over and over again, seduced by a woman that's bound and determined to keep him, even though she doesn't love him.

    But, everything's open to interpretation...

    General CommentThis song is sex. The part about the rose hips is brilliant, in an extremely sexy way.

    General CommentI've just listened to Adam's podcast about the album. He says Sarah helped him write this song, and she wrote the part about the rose's hips. That woman's brilliant.

    General CommentOne of my new favorite MBD songs.

    At the show, before the song, Adam said this song was about harpies.
