Whenever I'm with you
Something inside starts burning
And I'm filled with fire

Stop this, it's got a hold on me
I said this ain't the way it's supposed to be

It's like a heatwave burning in my heart
(It's like a heatwave)
I can't keep from crying
(Heatwave)
Tearing me apart

Whenever he calls my name
Sounds so soft sweet and plain
I feel this burning pain
This high blood pressure's got a hold on me
Is this the way love's supposed to be

It's like a heatwave burning in my heart
(It's like a heatwave)
I can't keep from crying
(Heatwave)
Tearing me apart

(Ooh, ooh heatwave)
(Ooh, ooh heatwave)
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)

So I'm starin' into space
Tears all over my face
I can't explain it
Don't understand it
I ain't never felt like this before

Well that funny feeling has me amazed
I don't know what to do
My head's in a haze
I got the heatwave

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Oh, he's gonna love her)
(Yes he's gonna love her)
Yeah, yeah
(Oh, he's gonna love her)
(Oh you know he's gonna love her)
Don't pass up this change, it could lead to romance
Oh, heatwave
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah,
Oh heatwave
Oh, yeah
Heatwave, yeah, heatwave
Burnin' burnin' burnin'
Heatwave, yeah, heatwave
Burnin' burnin' burnin'
