c'mon baby get the lighter
we're gonna start the fire

the army of words is in me
silent the soldier weeps
lying here back to back
waiting for you to be react

Sometimes all I need is a good push
roll over and whisper some goodness
go on baby you be the hero
now can we go back to zero

Chorus:
go on and get the lighter
we're gonna need some fire
let's get a little higher
the battlefield is tired
and why all that?
go on baby and get the lighter
we're gonna start the fire

just come here and cuddle up
I feel a little rough
I missed you in my sleep
are you still mad at me?

the moon must have mended my bad mood
come kiss me the way you're meant to
last night I was just playing
let's put it all away and

Repeat chorus

go on baby and get the lighter
we're gonna start the fire
go on baby and get the lighter
we're gonna start the fire

climb in, love with me
Climb in and love me
go on now baby you get it

had quite a heavy night
so delicate our love and pride
the most stubborn girl around
you really know how to bring me down
one more famous night to remember
let’s laugh at my silly temper
now let's spend the morning sweetly
get over here and complete me

repeat chorus

go on now baby you get it

    General CommentI agree that's it's about smoking pot together to relax, make up and get back together.

    Also lol at the bagpipe synthesizer.

    General Commentthis song is about the man I want but I am just friends with. I have slept in the same bed as him, stayed up all night with him at his house, listening to music til past dawn so the last verse is about our nights together. One thing though, it's not "so girl look it all up and bright" should be "so delicate our love and pride" - at least that's the way it is in the insert with the Rock Steady CD

    General CommentI always thought this song was about a couple who had gotten into a fight.

    She wants them to forgive eachother, and just go back to the way things were before they had the fight. Y'know, cuddling, kissing, the like. But they're going to need 'warmth' to get rid of the coldness they made. So start the fire.
