"Live Wire" as written by Damon Peter Savage, Buchanan, and Grear,....
If your lookin' for trouble
I'm the man to see
If you're looking for satisfaction
There's satisfaction guaranteed
Oh, I was cool as a bunny on ice
Hotter than the rolling dice
Send you to heaven take you to hell
I ain't fooling can't you tell

I'm a live wire
I'm a live wire
I'm a live wire
Gonna set this town on fire

And if you need some lovin'
And if you need some man
You've got the phone and the number
And I got no future plans
Oh come on honey you've got nothing to lose
You've got the thirst
I've got the booze
Give you an inch
Take you a mile
I'm gonna make you fry
I'm a live wire
(Live wire)
I'm a live wire
(Live wire)
I'm a live wire
(Live wire)
Holy smoking sweet desire
Like a hot rod baby
Oh stick this in you're fuse box
Oh cooler than a buny on ice
Hotter than the rolling dice
Wilder than a drunken might
You're gonna burn to night

I'm a live wire
(Live wire)
I'ma live wire
(Live wire)
I'm a live wire
(Live wire)

And I'm gonna set this town of fire
Live wire
(Live wire)
I'm a live wire
(Live wire)
Oh I'm your live wire
(Live wire)

I'm a live wire (Live wire)
Look at me burn
Ah look at me, guilty
Soak my circuit
Burn burn burn burn burn

    General CommentAh a GREAT song. Bon sounds so good in this one. A strong beat, steady riff, clever lyrics. I can't really put my finger on what its about though... it makes sense in my head but probably won't when i try to write it... ha...

    General CommentI think this song is about the 'live wire' in an electriucal circuit. There's three sorts of wires, neutral, earth and live. Live actually delivers the alternating current, which goes up and then dopwn. I think this going up and down of the voltage is the same as the opposite pairs in this song, troublesatisfaction, coolhot, heaven hell.
    Hope you get my point ;) cool song by the way.

    My InterpretationOk, so we all know wires are a very dangerous deal, you never know whether they are on or off, whether they are safe or deadly. Well, Live Wire is about a dangerous man that you'd never want to mess with. Thats the "Send you to heaven, take you to hell, I ain't follin', can't you tell" part. You f*ck with him and he will KILL you. But this dangerous man also has a soft spot for the ladies, he'd take advantage over any woman, get them drunk, and give them the ride (take you a mile). Point blank is, don't mess with him because he will mess you up.
