  • Girl, I know the winter gets cold
    And what you know is comfortable
    We get burned but we don't learn
    We still do what we say we won't

    You call me, I pick up
    Come get me, I give up
    Baby, I need you tonight
    Before you know it, ah

    Taillights leaving where I should stay
    Pick you up and end up at your place
    Turn a one never hurt nobody drink
    Into an all nighter
    One touch, one kiss, next thing you know
    Me over you goes up in smoke
    Every time we're almost down to coast
    It's one more, one last timer

    We keep throwing wood on the fire
    We keep throwing wood on the fire
    When we shouldn't let it get any higher
    Baby, we keep throwing wood on the fire

    We wake up kicking ourselves
    We put us back onto that shelf
    We swear off each other again
    But we know it won't be the last 2 AM

    That you'll call me and I'll pick up
    Come get me, I give up
    Baby, I want you tonight
    I'll be there in five

    Taillights leaving where I should stay
    Pick you up and end up at your place
    Turn a one never hurt nobody drink
    Into an all nighter
    One touch, one kiss, next thing you know
    Me over you goes up in smoke
    Every time we're almost down to coast
    It's one more, one last timer

    We keep throwing wood on the fire
    We keep throwing wood on the fire
    When we shouldn't let it get any higher
    Baby, we keep throwing wood on the fire

    Baby, I don't even know why we're fighting
    Try to put it out but the flame ain't dying
    Blame it on the past, blame it on bad timing
    If it ain't nothing then why's there

    Taillights leaving where I should stay
    Pick you up and end up at your place
    Turn a one never hurt nobody drink
    Into an all-nighter
    One touch, one kiss, next thing you know
    Me over you goes up in smoke
    Every time we're almost down to coast
    It's one more, one last timer

    But we keep throwing wood on the fire
    We keep throwing wood on the fire
    When we shouldn't let it get any higher
    Baby, we keep throwing wood on the fire Writer/s: Dustin Lynch, Hunter Phelps, Jordan Minton, Jordan Reynolds
