My day started
Broken hearted
Like an old time country song
Right then I knew
All I had to do
Was pick up the telephone
I dialed the number
An old familiar number
I prayed hadn't changed
I knew the word, every single word
That my heart wanted to say
Ooo ooo baby
I still love you so
Ooo ooo
There's a burning deep down in my soul
I want us back to together
I'm talking about forever
And I ain't playing no games
Do you want to start a fire with an old flame?
Do you want to start a fire with an old flame?
Do you want to start a fire with an old flame?
Do you want to start a fire with an old flame?
The phone kept ringing
Just kept on ringing
A hundred times or more
I finally gave up
I had to hang up
When a knock came a knockin' on my door
I couldn't believe it
I could hardly conceive it
You were standing right in front of me
I thought I was dreamin'
I said I must be dreaming
Until she turned around and said to me
Oooo ooo baby
I still love you so
Oooo ooo
There's a burning deep down in my soul
There's a burning deep down in my soul
I want us back to together
I'm talking about forever
And I ain't playing no games
Do you want to start a fire with an old flame?
Do you want to start a fire with an old flame?
Do you want to start a fire with an old flame?
Do you want to start a fire with an old flame?
Now we're back together
We're talking about forever
We ain't playing no games
Nooo noo
I started up a fire with an old flame
She started up a fire with an old flame
Yeah, we started up a fire with an old flame
Now we're dancing by the fire with an old flame
Yeahh yah yah yeah
Old flame, baby

    Revisiting a love relationship that may have been abandoned due to some pressure probably parental. A youthful age is most likely also an issue
