Love In Flames
written by John Hiatt

One in one and one makes three
Baby, you know that it ain’t no big mystery
Just from where you’re at
You never had these feelings to burn
You took my love and baby you turned

Chorus:
Is it all in my mind
Or is it a cruel game
This love in flame

I was up so high
Where eagles fly
I just never looked down

Oh, but you were down there
With the wind in your hair
And your feet on the ground
We might have had the stars in the sky
You never had the courage to try

Chorus
Love in flames

Love in flames
Is it the same
As passion flooding in the name of love
Or is it fear of pain
When love comes crashing down from above

Tonight I lay me down to sleep
On your side of the bed
I pray so hard for somebody to keep
Keep you out of my head
But it’s no use the sheets take your form
Into the dawn the ashes still warm

Chorus
Love in flames
