  • Girl you melt me like ice and whiskey
    With those blue fling looks that you give me,
    You can't hide what's inside
    And it's killing me right now to see
    You wanna slip off with me again

    Why should we go round and round the truth,
    Like we been doin'?
    Every time we lie girl we're losing
    So why should we spend Saturday night alone,
    When I can call you on the phone, pick you up
    Make it up as we go along
    Pull and all nighter chasing that desire
    Sparks flying in her eyes like lighters (like lighters)
    Get a little higher (get a little higher)
    Sippin' on fire

    You act like you don't know what you're missing,
    Every time you end up back with him
    'Cause it's safe, and you're scared.
    Of everything you're feeling when
    We're burning the midnight down again

    Why should we go round and round the truth, like we been doin?
    Every time we lie girl we're losing
    So why should we spend Saturday night alone,
    When I can call you on the phone, pick you up
    Make it up as we go along
    Pull and all nighter chasing that desire
    Sparks flying in her eyes like lighters (like lighters)
    Get a little higher (get a little higher),
    Sippin' on fire

    Every goodbye is bitter sweet,
    So why should we fight what we both need?

    Why should we go round and round the truth, like we been doin?
    Every time we lie girl we're losing
    So why should we spend Saturday night alone,
    When I can call you on the phone, pick you up
    Make it up as we go along
    Pull and all nighter chasing that desire
    Sparks flying in her eyes like lighters (like lighters)
    Get a little higher (get a little higher),
    Sippin' on fire

    Girl you melt me like ice and whiskey
    With those blue fling looks that you give me,
    You can't hide what's inside
    And it's killing me right now to see
    You wanna slip off with me Writer/s: John Cole Taylor, Matthew Peters Dragstrem, Rodney Dale Clawson
