Words & Music:

Bruce Springsteen


D   D/B   D   D/B   D    D/B  D  [D chord vamp]



I'm riding in your car -- you turn on the radio.

                  Em7                 D

You're pulling me close -- I just say no.

              Em7                           Bm

I say I don't like it -- but you know I'm a liar.

               G     A     D

'Cause when we kiss, oooh, fire.


Late at night – you're taking me home.

You say you want to stay -- I say I want to be alone.

I say I don't love you -- but you know I'm a liar.

'Cause when we kiss, oooh, fire.


          G                D

You had a hold on me right from the start

     A                           D

That gripped so tight I couldn't tear it apart.

   G                          D

My nerves all jumping, acting like a fool.

           E7                          A7

Well, your kisses, they burn -- but my heart stays cool.


Well, Romeo and Juliet -- Samson and Delilah.

Baby, you can bet a love they couldn't deny.

My word say split -- but my words, they lie.

'Cause when we kiss, oooh, fire.
