BLUE FLAME

Jack Tempchin, Glenn Frey, Tom Seufert

First time I saw you, I'll never forget
You burned my hand with your cigarette
I took you home from that downtown bar
I should've known better, I've still got the scar

You knocked on my door when it was five AM
Even when I told you not to do that again
Something about you is just what I need
But something about you I can't believe

It's a Blue Flame burning in your eyes
Blue Flame is it fire or ice
Blue Flame can I hold you or not
Burning me cold and hot

You broke the window and you tore the sheets
You smashed my guitar and threw it out in the street
baby you're so wild but you're still so cold
Something I want but I just can't hold

It's a Blue Flame burning in your eyes
Blue Flame is it love or lies?
Blue Flame can I hold you or not
Burning me cold and hot

Maybe I'm crazy and losing my mind
I just don't know where to draw the line
You're working me over but I'm still saying Yes
I'm sinking in quicksand, my life is a mess

It's a Blue Flame burning in your eyes
Blue Flame is it fire or ice
Blue Flame can I hold you or not
Burning me cold and hot
