I get up in the evening
I come home in the morning
I ain't nothing but tired
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help
You can't start a fire
This gun's for hire

Radio's on and I'm moving 'round the place
I want to change my clothes, my hair, my face
I'm just living in a dump like this
Baby I just know that there is
You can't start a fire
This gun's for hire

There's a joke here somewhere and it's on me
Come on baby this laugh's on me
Stay on the streets of this town
They say you gotta stay hungry
I'm dying for some action
I need a love reaction

This gun's for hire
You can't start a fire worrying about your little world falling apart
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Hey baby
