lyrics

I realize I called you and asked for a ride
And I know we made plans to go out tonight
But I can't leave my guitar when I feel the spark
So I've got to light a candle and not curse the dark

Being late to get you wasn't part of the plan
And I'm sorry that we didn't see the opening band
But the spark caught a fire and it started a blaze
And it would burn me to ashes if I walked away

And I can't stop now, even with the house on fire

I never said I'd be an easy man to love
I spend time on my music, come push or come shove
I can't sit and hold hands when I've got things to write
And sometimes I get in a little late at night

But I love the way you realize it's not about you
I could never love a woman who made me choose
And that's why I can smile when I look at your face
Ever since I was a boy, it's been this way

And I can't stop now, even with the house on fire

This fire, it can burn you
I've got to tell you so you don't waste your time
'Cause this fire is a passion
And when it happens, you'll be mine tonight

And I can't stop now, even with the house on fire
