Once in a lifetime something happens
No one understands
Turns the whole world inside out
Turns water into blazing sand

Who in the world would ever guess
That something wasn't right?
Who can explain when the sun comes up
In the middle of a winter night?

I'm burning up now, baby
I'm burning up now, baby, baby please

Who would have guessed that
When I first set eyes upon your face
History would be rearranged
And nothing would ever be the same?

Who would believe that in my heart
Is a piece of burning coal
Slowly turning from a fire
To a raging blaze without control?

I'm burning up now, baby
I'm burning up now, baby
I've seen so much, it scares me
I can't cool off 'cause something isn't right

What do you think would happen
If I sat outside your door?
Howled like a dog and played guitar
And begged you baby, baby please

How do you think your folks would feel
If I broke into your house?
Snuck in your room while you were asleep
And prayed to you, down, on my knees

I'm burning up now, baby
I'm burning up now, baby
I've seen so much, it scares me
I can't cool off 'cause something isn't right

Who in the world would ever guess
That somewhere in the middle of our cozy nest
There were dark things lurking in the back of your mind?
Just open the window and look with your eyes

Where in the good book does it say
That destiny cannot be changed
Who in the world would ever know
If you walked out the door and never came home?
'Cause something is not right
