Al Jarreau – Flame lyrics

So close and yet so smart
Head first before the heart
Ain't no shame
Ain't no game
With the flame

Coldwaters rush in March
No place for April flowers
Take her name
Say she came
With the flame

I've been told when the stars all align
That even bitter lips like mine
Will call the moon a friend and kiss again
Some I'm told let their hearts read the signs
While other men are hungerin'
And can't let it in

Be still my foolish heart
Please don't upset the cart
Stay the same
Ain't no game
With the flame

I've been told I'll be dancin in time
Walkin' rhythm', talkin' rhyme
The earth will turn and send the sun again
All my gold for a light or a sign
Some kind of kin to say my friend
Let it out - let it in

Strange fire down below
So 'fraid to let you know
Change my name
Start the game
With the flame

[Vocal interlude]

Strange fire down below
So 'fraid to let you know
Change my name
Start again
With the flame
The flame (2x)
