Lyrics:

 

I love you with a fever         

I love you like a fire

Everything is burning 

With the flames of my desire

 

Flames...

Love in flames...

I'm in flames...

Love in flames...

 

I love you like the movies

I love you like the TV

I love you when you're classy

And I love you when you're sleazy

 

Flames...

Love in flames...

I'm in flames...

Love in flames...

 

Only the ash remains...    

Everythings up in flames...

 

I wanna be your camera 

I wanna be your dancer

I wanna be your question

And I wanna be your answer

 

Flames...

Love in flames

I'm in flames

Love in flames

 

I wanna be your mystic

I wanna be your gypsy

I wanna be your target 

Anytime you wanna hit me

 

Flames...

Love in flames

I'm in flames

Love in flames

 

Only the ash remains...    

Everythings up in flames...

 

And there's nothing in the world

That can cure the fever...

There's nothing I can do 

To put out the fire...

There's nothing I can take 

That can take me higher...

'Cause you're my flame

You're my hot desire...

 

Oh, heartburn

Oh, heartburn
