the fire lyrics – chely wright

he’s dating a lawyer with a gentle nature
says she ain’t nothing like me
and there’s fire and there’s water and all i can offer
is a temperament that he don’t need
well he’s making his rounds with the well bred in town
safe and out of harm
well he can say what he likes water is nice
but it’s fire that keeps you warm


maybe i’m rough around the edges
and stubborn to a fault
maybe i’m just a little too hard headed
stiff backbone and all
maybe i’m p*ssionate about being p*ssionate
say what you like boy water is nice
but it’s the fire that keeps you warm

well if you know me you know it’s true
and you can quote me if you want to

[repeat chorus]
