"If I Built You a Fire" as written by Donald R. Sampson and Monty H. Holmes....
Baby I feel
A chill in the air
It's there in your touch
And your icy stare
Someone left you cold
At love's last turn
What I wouldn't do
To make your heart burn
If I built you a fire
Would you fan the flames?
Could I make it burn higher
If I whispered your name?
Give in to desire
Lay down by the light
If I built you a fire
Would you love me tonight?

Well, under the ashes
There's still a warm glow
With one little spark
It could still burn, I know
Let's take the last embers
Of a heart that's been broke
And watch those old memories
Just go up in smoke
Give in to desire
Lay down by the light
If I built you a fire
Would you love me tonight?
