Glenn Frey Can’t Put Out This Fire Lyrics

Well, I finally got your letter today

Think I understand what you had to say

Your message came through loud and clear

You gotta get away from me, and away from here

Tell myself I’m over you-then, I’m just a liar

‘ Cause every time I think of you-fills me with desire

Love is like a burnin’ flame-keeps on gettin’ higher

And, I can’t put out this fire, can’t put out this fire

Well, I don’t know what went wrong with you and me

Sometimes you get so close, you just can’t see

Now I’m out here standing in the rain

Thinkin’ about us and living with the pain

If I could only talk to you-then you’d understand

If I could hold you close to me-you’d know I’m still your man

Love is like a burnin’ flame-keeps on gettin’ higher

And I can’t put out this fire, can’t put out this fire

You know, breakin’ up is harder than it sounds

People leave, but love still hangs around

Memories refuse to go away

They follow you, and haunt you night and day

Love like ours will never die-can’t put out this fire

‘Cause when I think of you and I-fills me with desire

Love is like burnin’ flame-keeps on gettin’ higher

And I can’t put out this fire, can’t put out this fire
