out of the frying pan (and into the fire) lyrics – meat loaf

out of the frying pan (and into the fire)

its only two oclock and the tempertures beginning to soar
and all around the city you see the walking wounded and the living dead
its never been this hot and ive never been so bored
and breathing is just no fun anymore
and then i saw you like a summer dream
and youre the answer to every prayer that i ever said
i saw you like a summer dream
and youre the answer to every prayer that i ever said

you can feel the pulse of the pavement racing like a runaway horse
the subways are steaming and the skin of the street is gleaming with sweat
ive seen you sitting on the steps outside
and you were looking so restless and reckless and lost
i think its time for you to come inside
ill be waiting here with something that youll never forget
i think its time for you to come inside
ill be waiting here with something that youll never forget

come on! come on!
and therell be no turning back
you were only killing time and itll kill you right back
come on! come on!
its time to burn up the fuse
youve got nothing to do and even less to lose
youve got nothing to do and even less to lose

so wander down the ancient hallway
taking the stairs only one at a time
follow the sound of my heartbeat now
im in the room at the top, youre at the end of the line
open the door and lay down on the bed
the sun is just a ball of desire

and i wanna take you out of the frying pan (and into the fire)
out of the frying pan (and into the fire)
out of the frying pan (and into the fire)

and i wanna take you out of the frying pan (and into the fire)
out of the frying pan (and into the fire)
out of the frying pan (and into the fire)

and into the fire! fire! fire!
and into the fire! fire! fire!
and into the fire! fire! fire!
and into the fire!

its only two oclock and the tempertures beginning to soar
and all around the city you see the walking wounded and the living dead
its never been this hot and ive never been so bored
and breathing is just no fun anymore
and then i saw you like a summer dream
and youre the answer to every prayer that i ever said
i saw you like a summer dream
and youre the answer to every prayer that i ever said

come on! come on!
and therell be no turning back
you were only killing time and itll kill you right back
come on! come on!
its time to burn up the fuse
youve got nothing to do and even less to lose
youve got nothing to do and even less to lose

so wander down the ancient hallway
taking the stairs only one at a time
follow the sound of my heartbeat now
im in the room at the top, youre at the end of the line
open the door and lay down on the bed
the sun is just a ball of desire

and i wanna take you out of the frying pan (and into the fire)
out of the frying pan (and into the fire)
out of the frying pan (and into the fire)

and i wanna take you out of the frying pan (and into the fire)
out of the frying pan (and into the fire)
out of the frying pan (and into the fire)

and into the fire! fire! fire!
and into the fire! fire! fire!
and into the fire! fire! fire!
and into the fire!
