Lyrics

On Valentine's I think of you
It's just a poor excuse
You suffer me in my mind (In my mind)
Every single day, it's no use (Oh, oh)
It seems like cool sexy stares
But nothing's been ever said
Just keeps goin' 'round my head

I think I'm waiting for you
I think I'm waiting for you

You're more than a friend and almost a lover
It feels so good, I can't help but wonder
I keep thinking, ooh, when'll you discover?
We've got the flame, I want the fire

A-a-cting cool and casual (Yeah, yeah)
Check in 6 P.M. to say hey (Every day)
We're edging closer to broken rules
And getting carried away
I imagine that you've heard
Every hidden silent word
And we'd take it that bit further
(Take it that bit further)

I think I'm waiting for you
I think I'm waiting for you

You're more than a friend and almost a lover
It feels so good, I can't help but wonder
I keep thinking, ooh, when'll you discover?
We've got the flame, I want the fire

It's getting closer to now or never (Getting closer)
It's only us and it's clear (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
I can feel it when we're together

Ooh, you're more than a friend and almost a lover
It feels so good, I can't help but wonder
I keep thinking, ooh, when'll you discover?
We've got the flame
We've got the flame
We've got the flame
I want the fire, I want the fire
It feels so good, I can't help but wonder
I keep thinking, ooh, when'll you discover?
We've got the flame
I want the fire (You're more than a friend)
I want the fire (And almost a lover)
I want the fire (I want the fire)
I want the fire (Wonder)
I want the fire
I want the fire (Discover)
I want the fire (Yeah-eah)
Ooh-uh (You're more than a friend) Yeah-eah
Ooh-uh (It feels so good) Yeah-eah
Ooh-uh
Yeah-eah, ooh-uh

We've got the flame, I want the fire
