​Light It On Fire

This song is by Cowboy Mouth and appears on the album Are You With Me? (1996).

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 on 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 flame that pains me
If I do not light it on fire.
