"Comin' Under Fire" as written by Robert John Lange, Stephen Clark, Joseph Elliott, Peter Willis, Richard John Cyril Allen and Richard Savage....
Your kind of woman gotta heart of stone
But watch it break when I get you alone
Take a chance, come lay down with me
Oh, I wanna make it

Slow and steady never lost the race
Don't stop runnin', I'm a fool for the chase
Play the game, surrender to me
Baby, I don't wanna fake it

Is it any wonder, you got me comin' under fire?
Comin' like thunder, you know you make me walk the wire

It's so easy to put on a show
Your body says yes but you won't let it go
My passion it won't slip away
Oh I'm going crazy

Is it any wonder, you got me comin' under fire?
Comin' like thunder, you know you make me walk the wire

Under fire
You got me comin', under fire
You got me comin', under fire
Oh yeah, I'm comin', under fire
You body says yes but baby, please let it go
Let it go, yeah, yeah

You got me, I'm comin' my back to the wall
No bed of roses, ain't no bed at all
I'm walkin' the wire, I stumble and fall
I got my message but I ain't gonna crawl

Is it any wonder?
You got me comin' under fire
Comin' like thunder
You know you make me walk the wire

Is it any wonder
You got me comin' under fire?
Comin' like thunder
You know you make me walk the wire

Under fire
You got me comin, under fire
You got me comin', under fire
Oh yeah, I'm comin', under fire
Oh yeah, I'm comin', under fire

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a guy wanting a girl, but she shows no signs of feeling the same. He just wants one chance with her, to show her how he feels, and I quote; "You kind of woman got a heart of stone, but watch it break when i get you alone". This is one awesome song, from start to finish, very moving.

    General CommentI understand about how this guy wants the girl to give him on chance, but the part "Got me comin under fire" really doesnt fit the bill. Oh well it is still a dope ass song

    General CommentDon't be so naive people...these lyrics are carefully contrived to get around radio censorship...yeh lyrics are about a woman whose hard-to-get act has him comin'. (in case you didn't notice the "under fire" bit is an afterthought, even the way it's sung).
