It was fifteen summers when the whip came down.
Happened at a small town rock show.
It was game over when I heard that sound,
Tommy blasting through on the radio.
Under the covers with the lights turned down,
A whole new world that I wanna know.

Hearts on fire in a one-horse town.
Green light’s on baby, let’s go.

Whoa ohh … feels like there’s nothing to lose.
Whoa ohh … only one thing to do.
You gotta turn up the heat.
Turn up the heat.
You gotta turn up the heat.
Turn up the heat.

The clock kept ticking but the feeling stayed,
Burning a hole in my pocket.
Can’t call time on our glory days,
And feeding the flame won’t stop it.

Live and learn, got no regrets,
Time runs out, but I ain’t done yet.
You gotta turn up the heat …

Written by Singleton/Grimmett.
