Lyrics

Sure Fire

Written By: Donald Gibson

Let me break the ice
On second thought maybe I ought to think twice
But since first glance you've been an addiction
And though I know you're no angel with genuine conviction

Sparks are shooting off in my soul
I feel like love warmed over burning hot coals
What a heartbreaker, woman that's you
And every night you haunt me like ancient voodoo

And I know you would do me no good
'Cause it should be cold in these shadows where you've never stood
But you're living proof for the ages
In a burning desire, a sure fire rages

Always pray to the Lord on High
But come a moment of weakness in your wild eyes
My resistance breaks down 'til it's shattered
And though I know I could be dealing with immortal disaster

Fate is taking more than its toll
When we're standing so close, Babe, you're in control
And there's no avoiding the trouble I'm in
When I'm caught in hot water, it's a glorious sin

And I know you would do me no good
'Cause it should be cold in these shadows where you've never stood
But you're living proof for the ages
In a burning desire, a sure fire rages

It Hurts To Want You

Written By: Donald Gibson

What good is it to love you
Love won't make you mine
Nothing I could do would sway you
Or lower your bottom line
But when life gets so lonesome I could die
It hurts to want you

Yet I'll dream you in my weakness
When I'm bent on breaking down
Every moment makes me wonder
Just who you're holding now
In a perfect world, I'd walk on higher ground
But it hurts to want you

You've got all you need
But little do you know
Just how much the thought of your touch
Hits close to home

Now I've sweat out a killer crush
I've danced with all kinds of fantasies
I've faced myself in the mirror
Under the worst of third degrees
But there's no mercy in this world
Once you get the best of me
And so as long as I'm breathing
On my tired hands and knees
It hurts to want you
