I have a song called "Fire" on a cd by English singer Des'ree. It's a duet with Babyface. From the first time I heard it, I was convinced I had heard it before, and my mind keeps telling me that it's a Springsteen song. I asked my friend Brian, who has a best of Springsteen album, but he didn't know it.

Can anyone help?

Is it a remake of a Springsteen song that is maybe called something else but Fire is a predominant word in it. Like Home something maybe???? I may be way off here I don't even know if this will help at all.

These are the Springsteen lyrics, is this the song?

I'm driving in my car
I turn on the radio

I'm pulling you close
you just say no.
You say you don't like it
but girl
I know you're a liar

'Cause when we kiss - Fire!

Late at night I'm taking you home

When I say I wanna stay
you say you wanna be alone.
You say you don't love me
girl
you can't hide your desire

And when we kiss - Fire! Fire!

You had a hold on me right from the start

There's a grirl so tight
I couldn't tear it apart.
My nerves all jumping
acting like a fool

Your kisses they burn but your heart stays cool.

Romeo and Juliet
Samson and Delilah

Baby
you can bet their love they didn't deny.
Your words say split
but your words they lie

'Cause when we kiss - Fire! Fire!
Burning in my soul
it's out of control!
it's out of control!

Btw, this is an Earth Angel Favorite as well. [Razz]

Pointer sisters did do a remake of it. Their version was a bigger hit than The Boss' original version.
