Ooh, you're giving me the fever tonight
I don't wanna give in, I'd be playing with fire
You forget, I've seen you work before
Take 'em straight to the top, leave 'em crying for more
I've seen you burn 'em before

Fire and ice
You come on like a flame, then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
I wanna give you my love, but you'll just take a little piece of my heart
You'll just tear it apart

Moving in for the kill tonight
You got every advantage when they put out the lights
It's not so pretty when it fades away
'Cause it's just an illusion in this passion play
I've seen you burn 'em before

Fire and ice
You come on like a flame, then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
I wanna give you my love, but you'll just take a little piece of my heart

So you think you got it all figured out
You're an expert in the field, without a doubt
But I know your methods inside and out
And I won't be taken in by fire and ice

Fire and ice
You come on like a flame, then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
I wanna give you my love, but you'll just take a little piece of my heart

You come on like a flame, then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
I wanna give you my love, but you'll just take a little piece of my heart

You come on like a flame, then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
You come on like a flame, then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice

I had it with the same old routine
I had it with the same old faces, places
Everynight, in my life
I started feeling washed up, washed out
Hung up, wrung out, left to dry out
Everynight
But I know
Yeah, I know you're out there, somewhere
Oh, I, I can almost hear you callin'
I'm Looking For A Stranger in the night
I need a little danger in my life, tonight

I'm tired of the same old -
Hello baby, how ya doun'? Come here often?"
Where have you been all my life?"
Everynight

But I know
That someday, somewhere
I'll turn around and you'll be there
Ooo.., In my life
Everynight

But I know
Yeah, I know you're out there, somewhere
Oh, I, I can almost hear you callin'
I'm Looking For A Stranger in the night
I need a little danger in my life, tonight

I'm Looking For A Stranger in the night
I need a little danger in my life, tonight

Ooh baby, got a hold on me, I can't deny it
You locked the door and you swallowed the key
And I...and I kept quiet

Yeah baby, got a hold on me
I didn't want to be alone
I stayed with you 'cause I really believed
That I couldn't make it on my own

But I'm getting a little bit smarter
Gettin' tired of playin' the martyr
And I know what you're all about
I want out!
I want out!

Ooh baby, your lovin' told on me
I couldn't smile anymore
My friends all told me, baby, can't you see?
But I wasn't seeing clear before

Now I'm getting a little bit smarter
Gettin' tired of playin' the martyr
And I know what you're all about
I want out!
I want out!

Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I didn't want to be alone
I stayed with you 'cause I really believed
That I couldn't make it
I want out!

Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!

Your love's contagious, one kiss is dangerous
But I have more to risk, than you to lose
I feel passion growing, I know that love is only
Just one inch away, from striking us

We live for love, we live for love

When we get tired and watch the summer fade away
Will you think of romance, what will we do?
Is there a place where we can go?
Where time stands still for those who know?
'Til eternity, we'll fulfill our desires

We live for love, we live for love
We live for love, we live for love

I never planned to win the race
But you convinced me face to face
There was never a chance of losing at all

We live for love, we live for love
We live for love, we live for love
We live for love, we live for love
(to fade)

They cry in the dark, so you can't see their tears
They hide in the light, so you can't see their fears
Forgive and forget, all the while
Love and pain become one and the same
In the eyes of a wounded child

Because Hell, Hell is for children
And you know that their little lives can become such a mess
Hell, hell is for children
And you shouldn't have to pay for your love
With your bones and your flesh

It's all so confusing, this brutal abusing
They blacken your eyes, and then apologize
Be daddy's good girl, and don't tell mommy a thing
Be a good little boy, and you'll get a new toy
Tell grandma you fell off the swing

Because Hell, Hell is for children
And you know that their little lives can become such a mess
Hell, hell is for children
And you shouldn't have to pay for your love
With your bones and your flesh
No, Hell is for children

Hell, Hell is for Hell
Hell is for Hell, Hell is for children

Hell, Hell is for Hell
Hell is for Hell, Hell is for children

Hell, Hell is for Hell
Hell is for Hell, Hell is for children

Hell is for children
Hell is for children

You're a real tough cookie with a long history
Of breaking little hearts like the one in me
That's okay, let's see how you do it
Put up your dukes, let's get down to it

Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot?
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

You come on with the come on, you don't fight fair
That's okay, see if I care
Knock me down, it's all in vain
I get right back on my feet again

Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot?
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

Well, you're a real tough cookie with a long history
Of breaking little hearts like the one in me
Before I put another notch in my lipstick case
You better make sure you put me in my place

Hit me with your best shot, c'mon!
Hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot?
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

Never again, isn't that what you said
You've been through this before
You swore, this time, you'd think with your head
No one would ever have you again
And if takin' was gonna get done, you'd decide where and when

Just when you think you got it down
Your heart securely tied and bound
They whisper promises in the dark

Armed and ready, you fought love battles in the night
But too many opponents made you weary of the fight
Blinded by passion, you foolishly let someone in
All the warnings went off in your head, still you had to give in

Just when you think you got it down
Resistance nowhere to be found
They whisper promises in the dark

But promises you know what they're for
It sounds so convincing, but you heard it before
'Cause talk is cheap and you gotta be sure
And so you put up your guard
And you try to be hard but your heart says try again

You desperately search for a way to conquer the fear
No line of attack has been planned to fight back the tears
Where brave and restless dreams are both won and lost
On the edge is where it seems it's well worth the cost

Just when you think you got it down
Your heart in pieces on the ground
They whisper promises in the dark

. . .


Your love is like a tidal wave
Spinnin' over my head
Drownin' me in your promises
Better left unsaid

You're the right kind of sinner
To release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner
And you know that you are born to be

You're a heartbreaker
Dream-maker
Love-taker, don't ya mess around with me
You're a heartbreaker
Dream-maker
Love-taker, don't ya mess around, no no no

Your love has set my soul on fire
Burnin' out of control
You taught me the ways of desire
Now it's takin' its toll

You're the right kind of sinner
To release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner
And you know that you are born to be

You're a heartbreaker
Dream-maker
Love-taker, don't ya mess around with me
You're a heartbreaker
Dream-maker
Love-taker, don't ya mess around, no no no

You're the right kind of sinner
To release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner
And you know that you are born to be

You're a heartbreaker
Dream-maker
Love-taker, don't ya mess around with me
You're a heartbreaker
Dream-maker
Love-taker, don't ya mess around with me
You're a heartbreaker
Dream-maker
Love-taker, don't ya mess around with me
You're a heartbreaker
Dream-maker
Love-taker
Heartbreaker

We are young
Heartache to heartache
We stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield

We are strong
No one can tell us we're wrong
Searchin' our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

You're beggin' me to go and makin' me stay
Why do you hurt me so bad?
It would help me to know, do I stand in your way
Or am I the best thing you've had?
Believe me, believe me, I can't tell you why
But I'm trapped by your love and I'm chained to your side

We are young
Heartache to heartache
We stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield

We are strong
No one can tell us we're wrong
Searchin' our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

We're losing control, will you turn me away
Or touch me deep inside?
And if all this gets old, will it still feel the same?
There's no way this will die
But if we get much closer, I could lose control
And if your heart surrenders, you'll need me to hold

We are young
Heartache to heartache
We stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield

We are strong
No one can tell us we're wrong
Searchin' our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

We are young
Heartache to heartache
We stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield

We are strong
No one can tell us we're wrong
Searchin' our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

. . .


You've gotta admit, you paint a pretty picture
No one would ever suspect
You're so adept at the art
I hear the lonely lover sigh
You hide behind cosmetic eyes

Kiss them off with lipstick lies
Lipstick lies won't hide the truth
They won't keep you waterproof
The victim of your vanity

You're the Picasso of pain, a fantasy in flesh-tone
And though you're never the same
You're never far from the mark
Now and then you close your eyes
To see the heartbreak in disguise

Kiss them off with lipstick lies
Lipstick lies won't hide the truth
They won't keep you waterproof
The victim of your vanity

You see just what you want to see
Who's to blame?
Love is love by any name
Who's to blame?

Lipstick lies won't hide the truth
They won't keep you waterproof
The victim of your vanity
You see just what you want to see

Who's to blame?
Love is love by any name

Who's to blame?
Love is love by any name

Who's to blame?
Love is love by any name

Who's to blame?
