It's four a.m., I'm drunk and alone
trying to call you on a public phone
I wanted passion, I wanted desire
My heart is a flame that pains me
if I do not light it on fire

I'm the perfect picture of a perfect fool
You're out doing what I wanted you to
I'm in the heartbreak hotel and there's a desk clerk for hire
My heart is a flame that pains me
if I do not light it in fire

How can I tell you
just how it feels
How do you make love stay
and how do you know if what's staying is real

I was the one full of whiskey and talk
I was the one with the skip in his walk
You say the truth hurts, yeah well, so does a liar
My heart is a flam ethat pains me
if I do not light it on fire
