Album: Freeze Frame (1981)
  • All day long she holds it back
    Back with all her might
    She carries a burnin' torch inside
    She holds it firm and tight
    She punches out the clock
    While it keeps punchin' out her life
    She's a flamethrower, red-hot glower
    Flamethrower at night
    The things she wears at work
    They hang off her kinda loose
    Her blouse don't fit, the pants ain't right
    She ain't no front page news
    But when her work is done
    And the daytime turns to night
    The headlines flash in neon
    That the girl has taken flight
    Chairman of the board
    Won't look her in the eye
    The fire of her vision
    His money just can't buy
    Silently she waits
    Silently she contemplates
    She can make 'em tremble
    You know the reason why

    She's a flame, flamethrower
    She's a flamethrower at night
    She's a flame, a red-hot glower
    She's a flamethrower at night

    You might think you're burnin'
    All your candles at both ends
    Maybe you should go to church
    To make up some amends
    But if you think you're fireproof
    So cool and much too much
    Don't dare go near my baby
    Cause she'll melt you with her touch
    I forget the darkness
    I forget the pain
    When she's movin' through my heart
    And when she's pumpin' through my veins
    She's the part inside me
    I never can control
    And she's the only reason
    I know I've got a soul
