"Fire" as written by Michael Francis Flynn and Daniel Layus....
No it don't come easy
No it don't come fast
Lock me up inside your garden
Take me to the riverside

[Chorus]
Fire burning me up
Desire taking me so much higher
And leaving me home

There you were in your black dress
Moving slow to the sadness
I could watch you dance for hours
I could take you by my side

[Chorus]

Its like fire turning me on
Desire taking me so much higher
And leaving me home

    General CommentI don't know about anyone else but to me this song has a very sexual undertone. I don't even know if it's about love at all. it basically sounds to me like he just wants to have sex with this girl.
    "lock me up inside your garden" sounds more like "I wanna be inside of you" if you ask me.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful.... I think its about how he loves the girl and sees her there but he cant go, and hes just dying to love her and all those feelings he has for her.

    General CommentAnother beautiful song. Good job, boys!

    I don't think there is a sexual connotation to the song at all. It's about a passionate love that burns, but does not consume his heart. A love that seems to take everything, but in the end, leaves him "whole".

    General CommentThis is the song that made me fall in love with Augustana. I was obsessed with it, and played it over and over and over. I hadn't heard any of their other songs when I bought Can't Love, Can't Hurt, but now, I've fallen in love with them all. (: ♥
    But, this song is really beautiful. I agree both with Jordanzadanggit and sunshine16 for the meaning of the song- I think it's about passion, but it really sounds like it has a slight sexual undertone.
