You've got me on fire

Poetry By: Aerial90

These are song lyrics for a song in-progress. I hope to one day and sing and play this song - if for no other audience than myself. It's set to a waltz beat.

With a smile you once told me, there was naught you could do

You pulled me into your arms, and whispered "I love you"

Ooooo oooooh ooooh you've got me on fire

Ooooo ooooh ooooooh ooooh you've got me on fire, remember when

That night by the river, you looked into my soul

I melted beneath your touch, lost all self control

Ooooh ooooh oooooh, you've got me on fire,

Ooooh oooooh ooooh oooh you've got me on fire, once again

Before this we were strangers, though I think we both knew

How our hearts and souls blurred into one, I cannot deny the truth

Now our lives are cast adrift, as I walk this lonely road

The depth I felt is never lost, I just wander here on my own

All these years I ached to know, to learn of what I'd lost

Now I see you in a window, gasp, my breath is caught

Years gone by without a word, though I hoped and I prayed

Looking back, I think you know, there was no other way

Ooooh oooh ooooh oooh, you've got me on fire,

Ooooh ooooh oooh ooooooh, I burn with desire, just like then

Ooooh oooh oooh oooh, you've got me on fire,

Oooh oooh oooh oooh, don't let me go, at the end
