Billy Dean – Trying To Hide A Fire In The Dark lyrics

From the thoughts that I've been thinkin' I should think of an alibi
Thought I'm innocent I've still got a guilty mind
There's no place that I can turn to when she turns out the lights
To keep her from seein' you burnin' in my eyes
It's like tryin' to hide a fire in the dark carrin' around this torch in my heart
I cannot conceal it I cannot put it out
It's like tryin' to hide a fire in the dark
Tryin' to fight a flame I never meant to start
It's out of control and nothing can help me now oh no

At first it was no problem flickering thoughts of you now and then
Nothing intimate that she could call a sin
Then you sparked my imagination temptation bout to drive me wild
These flares of desire you can see for miles
It's like tryin' to hide a fire...
It's like tryin' to hide a fire...
