I get up in the evening 
And I ain't got nothing to say 
I come home in the morning 
I go to bed feeling the same way 
I ain't nothing but tired 
Man I'm just tired and bored with myself 
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help 

You can't start a fire 
You can't start a fire without a spark 
This gun's for hire 
Even if we're just dancing in the dark 

Message keeps getting clearer 
Radio's on and I'm moving 'round the place 
I check my look in the mirror 
I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face 
Man I ain't getting nowhere 
I'm just living in a dump like this 
There's something happening somewhere 
Baby I just know that there is 

You can't start a fire 
You can't start a fire without a spark 
This gun's for hire 
Even if we're just dancing in the dark 

You sit around getting older 
There's a joke here somewhere and it's on me 
I'll shake this world off my shoulders 
Come on baby this laugh's on me 

Stay on the streets of this town 
And they'll be carving you up alright 
They say you gotta stay hungry 
Hey baby I'm just about starving tonight 
I'm dying for some action 
I'm sick of sitting 'round here trying to write this book 
I need a love reaction 
Come on now baby gimme just one look 

You can't start a fire sitting 'round crying over a broken heart 
This gun's for hire 
Even if we're just dancing in the dark 
You can't start a fire worrying about your little world falling apart 
This gun's for hire 
Even if we're just dancing in the dark 
Even if we're just dancing in the dark 
Even if we're just dancing in the dark 
Even if we're just dancing in the dark 
Hey baby
