​Cheatin' Fire

This song is by Conway Twitty and appears on the album Mr. T (1981) and on the album Red Neckin' Love Makin' Night (1994).

Cheatin' fire, it's gonna burn higher
Still we lay here in the ashes unconcerned
Every night the same ole thing, we just pour fuel on the flames
Before this cheatin' fire goes out someone'll get burned

Here we are again too far gone to gain control
And we can't find a way to kill the flame
We get lost in our love, don't know which way to turn
So we'll just build a fire and let it burn

Cheatin' fire, it's gonna burn higher
Still we lay here in the ashes unconcerned
Every night the same ole thing, we just pour fuel on the flames
Before this cheatin' fire goes out someone'll get burned

It doesn't feel so wrong 'cause the fires gone out at home
And right now this feeling's more than we can stand
We find we're just too weak to fight this strong desire
And tonight will build another cheatin' fire

Cheatin' fire, it's gonna burn higher
Still we lay here in the ashes unconcerned
Every night the same ole thing, we just pour fuel on the flames
Before this cheatin' fire goes out someone'll get burned

Cheatin' fire, it's gonna burn higher
(Cheatin' fire, higher and higher)
Still we lay here in the ashes unconcerned
Every night the same ole thing, we just pour fuel on the flames
Before this cheatin' fire goes out someone'll get burned

Cheatin' fire, it's gonna burn higher
(Cheatin' fire, higher and higher)
Still we lay here in the ashes unconcerned
Every night the same ole thing, we just pour fuel on the flames
Before this cheatin' fire goes out someone'll get burned

Cheatin' fire, it's gonna burn higher
(Cheatin' fire, higher and higher)
Still we lay here in the ashes unconcerned
Every night the same ole thing, we just pour fuel on the flames
Before this cheatin' fire goes out someone'll get burned
