Lyrics
Tried to strike a conversation
You never heard a word I said
Tried to warm you with temptation
But got a cold shoulder instead

You hardly glanced up from your magazine
And when I tried to meet your eyes, you wouldn't see, you couldn't see

(Fire) I lit a candle, turned out the light
I've been tryin' to get it goin' all night
Stayed up late, gave up sleep
Would've thought by now I'd learn
This fire just won't burn

So I struggled to impress you
Workin' hard for you to notice me
Said some things I never should have
Tried to become what I'd never be

But you hardly glanced up from your work, baby
And when I tried to meet your eyes, you wouldn't look, you wouldn't look

(Fire) I lit a candle, turned out the light
I've been tryin' to get it goin' all night
Stayed up late, gave up sleep
Would've thought by now I'd learn
This fire just won't...

I'll keep tryin' as long as it takes
'Cause you mean too much to me to stop it now
No, I won't give up

I lit a candle, turned out the light
I've been tryin' to get it goin' all night
Stayed up late, gave up sleep
Would've thought by now I'd learn
This fire just won't burn
This fire just won't burn
This fire just won't burn
