Fire On The Water



When I touch you I can feel you shivering,
I can feel your heart is beating fast,
We are alone in this crowded room,
Oh tonight there is something happening,
And it's something that should never be,
But there's a flame over you and me;

And I can see the fire on water,
I can see the light shining in your eyes,
I know that I can't stop it now,
'Cos I've been caught in the heat of the sun...

There's a place in an ancient fortress,
High above the worries of the world,
I'd love you there for a long, long time,
And we'll discover all our deepest secrets,
And let the spirit go flying free,
Until the dawn breaks over the sea;

It's burning like fire on the water,
I can see the light shining in your eyes,
I know that I can't stop it now,
'Cos I've been caught in the heat of the sun,
Yes I've been caught in the heat of the sun,
Oh let it shine on me,
And I can see the fire on the water,
I can see the light shining in your eyes,
I know that I can't stop it now,
'Cos I've been caught in the heat of the sun,
Yes I've been caught in the heat of the sun,
Oh let it shine on me;

And I can see the fire on the water,
Can't stop it now...
"It's about that moment in a crowded room when two people who really shouldn't be are attracted to each other. They just can't help it. There's not much of a story involved in this one, it's more of a mood and an emotion. It involves, say, two married people or two attached people being at a party. Their hands brush against each other, and they know they shouldn't get involved - but they're drawn together irresistibly. He's kind of musing about how he'd like to take her away to an old castle in the middle of nowhere and then they would discover each other's deepest secrets away from the rest of the world. It's a ballad with a real nice kind of slinky mood."
