[Chorus]
Atlanta burned again last night
And all the water in the ocean
Couldn't put out the fire this time
They gave into sin again
And Lord, it felt so right
When Atlanta burned again last night

She was over thirty
He was barely seventeen
She was in her second marriage
He dated a high school queen

Somehow they came together
In the heat of a Georgia night
Told her that he loved her
As she turned out the lights

[Chorus]
Atlanta burned again last night
And all the water in the ocean
Couldn't put out the fire this time
They gave into sin again
And Lord, it felt so right
When Atlanta burned again last night

Her son was almost his age
But he didn't seem to care
The only thing that mattered
Was the fever they would share

As she pulled him closer
And the moment felt so right
Two strangers turned to lovers
On a red hot Georgia night

[Chorus]
Atlanta burned again last night
And all the water in the ocean
Couldn't put out the fire this time
They gave into sin again
And Lord, it felt so right
When Atlanta burned again last night

She left in the morning
No tears in her eyes
What they shared that lonely night
Memory won't let die

Never stopped to wonder
They seemed to understand
It made her feel needed
She made him a man

[Chorus]
Atlanta burned again last night
And all the water in the ocean
Couldn't put out the fire this time
They gave into sin again
And Lord, it felt so right
When Atlanta burned again last night
