Billy Dean - Tryin' to Hide a Fire in the Dark Lyrics

From the thoughts that I've been thinkin'
I should think of an alibi
Though I'm innocent, I've still got a guilty mind
There's no place that I can turn to
When she turns out the lights
To keep her from seein' you burnin' in my eyes

It's like tryin' to hide a fire in the dark
Carryin' around this torch in my heart
I cannot conceal it, I cannot put it out
It's like tryin' to hide a fire in the dark
Tryin' to fight a flame I never meant to start
It's out of control and nothin' can help me now

At first it was no problem
Flickering thoughts of you now and then
Nothin' intimate that she could call a sin
Then you sparked my imagination
Temptation 'bout to drive me wild
These flares of desire you can see for miles

It's like tryin' to hide a fire in the dark
Carryin' around this torch in my heart
I cannot conceal it, I cannot put it out
It's like tryin' to hide a fire in the dark
Tryin' to fight a flame I never meant to start
It's out of control and nothin' can help me now
