Hotter Than Hell In Houston
 
Lyrics
VERSE
I had not been gone very long; she was still on my mind
I had left where I did not belong; how could I have been so blind?
I went on down to Houston to get as far away as I could
Knock, knock, knock on wood, I knew the change would do me good

PRE-CHORUS
And I was right 'cause almost overnight, mmm, I hooked up with you

CHORUS
Now it's hotter than hell in Houston, (mmm) but it could be a lot worse
I could still be livin' with her and that would be a helluva curse
Yeah, it's hotter than hell in Houston, oh, but I'm lovin' this town
'Cause I'm in the house with you, babe, and your love is coolin' me down

RIDE

VERSE
The way you light my fire, understand my desire, God you're hot
It's like I'm flyin' so high I could touch the sun in the sky
But just before I can go no more, you make your moves a whole lot slower
And leave me to cool; you just took me school; baby, I love what you got

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yeah, it's hotter than hell in Houston
But, baby, that's cool with me

Description
Short Song Description:
Contrast between the hot weather outside and how "cool" it is inside with her.
Long Song Description:
Guy breaks up with a girl in Dallas. Moves to Houston to get away. It's way hot in Houston but he quickly finds another love interest and she "cools him down." So "it's hotter than hell in Houston, but that's cool with me."
Story Behind the Song:
No story from real-life experience. Just a story. Guy breaks up with a girl in Dallas. Moves to Houston to get away. It's way hot in Houston but he quickly finds another love interest and she "cools him down." So "it's hotter than hell in Houston, but that's cool with me." I also like the alliteration in the hook.
