​Flames Of Love

This song is by Boz Scaggs and appears on the album Boz Scaggs & Band (1971).

I've tried to run I've tried to hide
It just don't do no good
Nights grow long and love grows strong
I'd leave you if I could
Can't believe this power of love
This hold you've got on me
It's been so strong it seems so long
It just won't let me be

Help me love my heart's a-burning
Tell me why I keep returning
Set me up and turn me around
Flames of love keep burning me down

Put me off put me down
I won't die away
Love that's hotter than the sun
You know I'm here to stay
Do me right do me wrong
You're about to do me in
The way you move's a doggone crime
The way you loves a sin

Help me love my heart's a-burning
Tell me why I keep returning
Set me up set me down
These flames of love are turning me around

My tongue gets tied my eyes go blind
The truth is plain to see
I'm hooked my friend it's near the end
And you won't let me be
I can't eat I can't sleep
You've got me in your spell
If this goes on I won't last long
Darling you know darn well

Help me love my heart's a-burning
Tell me why I keep returning
I've tried to run I've tried to hide
It just don't do no good
The nights grow longer love grows stronger
I'd leave you if I could

Can't believe the power of love
This hold you've got on me
It's been so strong it seems so long
You just won't let me be

Do me right do me wrong
You're about to do me in
