Fire And Desire (Album Version)

Teena Marie

Rick James and Teena Marie

Wow
Its really good to see you again, baby
And I must admit you're looking very, very, very nice these days
I guess life must be treating you well
Oh, me
Well, Ive just been doing the same ol' thing Ive always been doing
You know, Ive got a new lady now
And its a little different then it was when I was with you
You know, I think back to when we met
The way I use to be and the cold way I use to act
But more than that. I think of how you changed me with your love and sensitivity
Remember when I used to

Love them and leave them
That's what I used to do
Use and abuse them
Then I laid eyes on you

It was pain before pleasure
That was my claim to fame
With every measure, baby
Tasted teardrop stains, yeah

I was cold as ice long ago, baby, baby
I wasn't very, very, very nice, you know
Sugar, sugar, sugar
Then I kissed your lips

And you tuned on my fire, baby
And you burn me up within your flame
Took me a little higher
Made me live again

You turned on my fire, baby
Then you showed me what a love could do
Fire and desire, baby
Feel it coming through

And I thank you, baby
Oh, how I thank you, baby
You taught me so much
And you showed me so much and love and insensitivity
That since you've been gone I don't think Ive ever felt this way before
You know its funny how a man can change
So quickly from a cold blooded person
Thinking hes God gift to women
Remember how I use to do that
I must have been crazy then
Remember when you used to

Love them and leave them
Oh, that's what I used to do
Use them and abuse them, whoa
Then I laid eyes on you

It was pain before pleasure
Oh, that was my claim to fame
With every measure
Tasted your teardrop stains, yeah

You were cold as ice (Woo, ho, ho, ho) baby, baby
(I-I wasn't, I-I wasn't very nice, I know, woo)
Sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar
Then I kissed your lips

And you (You turned on) turned (You turned on) on
(You turned on my fire) my fire, baby (oh, )
Then you showed me what a love could do (Woo, ho)
Fire and desire (Fire and desire)
Feeling good to you (Feeling good to you)

You turned on my fire (Fire, oh, oh) baby (Oh, baby)
And you burn me up within your flame (You burn me, you burn me)
Fire and desire (Fire and desire)
And were both to blame, both to blame (Oh oh)

You know
I guess I think we both said a little too much today (No, oh, ho ho)
After all Tee, you're kind of with somebody else
I'm kind of living with somebody (Oh, oh, oh)
But please do me a favor just before you go (What is it, baby)
Just put your arms around me and hold me like you used (I wanna hold you tight)
Tell me "Rick" (Oh oh) "Everything is gonna be alright"
(Everything, everything, everything is gonna be alright)
Put your arms around me
Put your arms around me (Oh)
(Oh oh)
Oh, baby (Wo oh oh)
Oh, baby (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, )
(oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
