Story

This co-written song won the pop category of the Australian Songwriting Association Awards a few years back. I was fortunate to meet Erinn Sherlock while attending a Songwriting retreat—I sometimes wondered why she never became an artist herself as she could have easily ticked all the boxes that a marketing team would hope for.

 

She now lives most of her days still happily writing, on the other side of the world but I'm so glad I was able to find time to collaborate with her beautiful, creative spirit before she left these Aussie shores.

Lyrics

V1

And I watched the moon set

As I’m sitting on the edge of my bed

Where another night meets another day

Like another flame, watch it melt away

Oooh yeah, I thought I heard your whispers in the air

How could I, you’re not there, but-

Pre Chorus

What if I could touch you, and ah

What if I could taste you, and ah

What if I could feel you, touching me too?

CHORUS

Wanna play with fire (I'm aching for more)

Feel the heat of your fire (Of what we had before)

You had to leave me but why her? (You walked out that door)

Cause you’ve found a new flame (Found a new flame)

V2

Water falling

Down my head, ’cross the back of my neck

And I’m, trying hard to ease the pain

But it, but it flares right up again

Oooh yeah, I thought I saw your shadow by the stair

How could I, you’re not there, but-

Pre Chorus

What if I could touch you, and ah

What if I could taste you, and ah

What if I could feel you, touching me too?

CHORUS

Wanna play with fire (I'm aching for more)

Feel the heat of your fire (Of what we had before)

You had to leave me but why her? (You walked out that door)

Cause you’ve found a new flame (Found a new flame)

Bridge

When my heart beats fast in the dead of night

And I'm chasing 'round the echoes in the back of my mind

And I’m reaching for your body but you’re not at my side

Just take me back to that-

Night when you took me so impossibly high

Should’ve known at the time by the look in your eye

But I’ve never, ever heard such a beautiful lie

Melting my heart with your-

CHORUS/OUTRO

Fire (I'm aching for more)

Feel the heat of your fire (Of what we had before)

You had to leave me but why her? (You walked our that door)

Cause you've found a new flame, found a new flame

Fire (I'm aching for more)

Feel the heat of your fire (Of what we had before)

You had to leave me but why her? (You walked out that door)

Cause you’ve found a new flame (found a new flame)

Mmn ooh aay, mmn ooh aay aay

Mmn, you've found a new flame, found a new flame
