Well I have spent nights with matches and knives
Leaning over ledges only two flights up
Hurting my heart, burning my soul nothing left to hold
Nothing left the blood and the fire
You have spent nights thinking of me
Missing my arms but you needed to leave
Leaving my cuts, leaving my burns, hoping I'd learn

But blood and fire are too much for
These restless arms to hold
And my nights of desire
They're calling me back to your fold
And I am calling you, calling you
From ten thousand miles away
Won't you whet my fire with your love, babe?

I am looking for someone who can
Take as much as I give babe
And give back as much as I need you know
And they, they still have the will to live
'Cause I am intense, I am in need
I am in pain, I am in love, but I feel forsaken
You know like the things I, I gave away

And blood and fire are too much for these
Restless arms to hold
And my nights of desire
They're calling me back to your fold
And I am callin' you, callin' you
From ten thousand miles away
Would you whet my fire with your love?
And it's babe, babe, babe

I am intense, I am in need
I am in pain, I am in love
You know and I am intense, I am in need
I am in pain, I am in love
I am intense, I am in need
I am in pain, I am in love

And blood and fire are too much for
These restless arms to hold
And my nights of desire
They're callin' me back to your fold
And I am callin' you, callin' you
From ten thousand miles away
Won't you whet my fire with your love, babe?
Won't you whet my fire with your love, babe now?
Whet my fire with your love
