Intro: D (3 times)  D(hold)


                   D    '                    '
I'm riding in your car, you turn on the radio. 
D              Em7    '          D
You pullin' me close, I just say no. 
D              Em7     '                  Bm
I say I don't like it, but you know I'm a liar. 
               G    A     '    '   '  D(hold)
'Cause when we kiss, ooh, fire. 

Late at night, you're taking me home. 
You say you wanna stay, I say I wanna be alone. 
I say I don't love you, but you know I'm a liar. 
'Cause when we kiss, ooh, fire. 

          G                D
You had a hold on me right from the start, 
  A                       D
a grip so tight I couldn't tear it apart.
   G                          D     
My nerves all jumpin', actin' like a fool
           E7                       A7          A7(hold)
Well, your kisses they burn, but my heart stays cool. 

Romeo and Juliet, Samson and Delilah.
Baby, you can bet, a love they couldn't deny.
My words say split, but my words they lie. 
Cause when we kiss, ooh, fire.
