Red Hot Lovers
Dan Clanton

I love you, like an old house shoe,
Like my ragged jeans, you know the ones I mean.
You're my warmest coat, a muffler at my throat,
You're my toast with jam, you're my beans with ham.

When we take a walk, we don't have to talk
When we drive around, we don't make a sound.
Anything I say, you finish anyway
The conversation's clear, it's been that way for years.

Chorus:
Oh, but there's times in the middle of the night,
You light my match and the flame burns bright,
The clock rolls back and we're young again,
Red-hot lovers more than friends!

I've got my favorite chair, you have your sofa there,
We spend more time here now, seems that way anyhow
Then it's the evening news, while I watch you snooze
It's a quiet time, suits me just fine!
Repeat Chorus

Bridge
Time it makes the seasons,
It can let those fires burn low.
But love gives me the reason,
To fan those embers till they glow!

In the breakfast nook, I watch you cook,
Same thing today we had yesterday.
That's OK by me, I have a guarantee
With you I can't go wrong, that's why I wrote this song!

Repeat Chorus
"Because of those times in the middle of the night"
Repeat first two lines
