I was seventeen and stupid,
She was pink[?] and perfect.
We were almost make-believe,
Innocent and nervous.
And you became a drug, (Hey!)
And I can't get enough.

You are the sound of fire burning up the night,
And I can't hold a beat to save my life,
So I don't wanna dance alone.
I don't wanna dance alone.

Into your arms, when time was still,
And nothing mattered.
You could take my heart and break it,
And shake it, leave me forsaken,
And I just want it badder.
And you became love, (Hey!)
And I can't get enough.

You are the sound of fire burning up the night,
And I can't hold a beat to save my life.
You are the sound of fire keeping me alive,
And I need you to need me to survive.

And I don't want anybody else,
If I can't have you to myself,
All to myself.
I don't wanna dance alone.

You are the sound of fire burning up the night,
And I can't hold a beat to save my life.
You are the sound of fire keeping me alive,
And I need you to need me to survive.
I don't wanna dance alone.
(Hey! Hey!)

    General CommentI love this song so much! :) This song is basically a guy singing to the girl he loved when he was younger and still loves now. Nothing really different than most love songs but I can't stop listening to it.
