It's four A.M., I'm drunk and alone
Tryin' to call you on a public phone
I wanted passion, I wanted desire
[A]My heart is a flame that pains me if I do not
[A]Light it on [E]Fire
If I do not lig[A]ht it on [E]fire
If I do not lig[A]ht it on [E]fire
A (n.c.)
If I do not light it on fire
VERSE 2 (Main riff repeated through first 3 lines, last line A as above):
I'm the perfect picture of a perfect fool
You're out doin' what I wanted ya' to
I'm in heartbreak hotel and there's a desk clerk for hire
My heart is a flame that pains me if I do not
[C] [C] [E] [A]How can I [E]tell you
[C] [C] [E] [A]Just how it [E]feels
[C] [C] [E] [A]How can you [E]make love stay and
[A] How do you know if what's stayin' is real
MAIN RIFF + guitar solo
VERSE 3 (same as VERSES 1 and 2):
I was the one full of whiskey and talk
I was the one with the skip in my walk
You say the truth hurts, well so does a liar
My heart's a flame that pains.....
(repeated with A E chords into MAIN RIFF close)

(note: the easiest way to play the riff is to start with
your first finger on the D string, 2nd fret. After the first
two E notes and the note on the D string, move it to the A
string, where it remains, until you hit the A chords. After the
A chords, place your first three fingers on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th
frets of the D string, and pull off one after each note...)
