I'm On Fire

written by Bruce Springsteen
from VH1 Crossroads

Lyrics

Hey, little girl, is your daddy home
Did he go and leave you all alone
I got a bad desire
oooh, I'm on fire

Tell me now baby is he good to you
Can he do to you the things I want to
need you
to cool my desire
oooh, I'm on fire

yes, sometimes it feels like you took a knife
edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
through the middle of my soul
oooh, yes

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
with a freight train running through the
middle of my head
got a bad desire
oooh, I'm on fire

sometimes it feels like you took a knife
edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
through the middle of my soul
oooh, yes

Hey, little girl, is your daddy home
Did he go and leave you all alone
I got a bad desire
oooh, I'm on fire

I can take you higher
oooh, I'm on fire
