  • I heard you were back in town
    I heard you would come around
    Trying to get off the ground
    Every road you went down

    Walked down the old street
    Just to feel the old heat
    If you're burning on empty
    I'll be holding a golden ring

    Cause hey hey, they don't know you like I do
    I wait for the whole world to show you
    Maybe we're not, not that gone

    Do you ever think about me? Do you ever call my name?
    Ask me now I'll give you the reasons
    My love will not fade
    Through the fire and rain, the fire and rain

    I'll meet you half way
    If you're coming the long way
    Don't care what the people say
    Of the prodigal runaway

    Cause hey hey, they don't know you like I do
    I wait for the whole world to show you
    Maybe we're not, not that gone

    Do you ever think about me? Do you ever call my name?
    Ask me now I'll give you the reasons
    My love will not fade
    Through the fire and rain, the fire and rain

    We'll say goodbye, I'm gone
    Oh, it hurts to hold on
    If you settle your score, no, no
    Pick you up off the floor

    Do you ever think about me? Do you ever call my name?
    Ask me now I'll give you the reasons
    My love

    Do you ever think about me? Do you ever call my name?
    Ask me now I'll give you the reasons
    My love will not fade
    Through the fire and rain, the fire and rain
    The fire and rain, the fire and rain
