I came 'round to your front door, your back door was locked
I saw your window open wide, so I crawled inside
I was on my way up and you were going down
Fire in the basement
There's fire in the basement

Sweet infatuation when I get next to you
'Cause when the sparks start flying you'll never be the same

Burn me up, scream and shout
Only you can put it out
Smoky eyes burning bright
Surrender to the flame, what's your name
Give this boy a helping hand, come on light my fuse
