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
[Chorus] 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

In The Beatles "When I'm 64," Paul McCartney asks a woman if she'll still be there for him when he's 64. In 2006, he got his answer when shortly before his 64th birthday, he and Heather Mills separated.
