Lyrics [verse]:
I DON'T EVER CARE
TO RISE TO POWER,
I WOULD RATHER BE WITH YOU
AN HOUR.
ALL THE THINGS
THAT ONE CAN BUY
AREN'T WORTH
A LOVER'S SIGH.

[Chorus]:
I DON’T WANT TO SET THE WORLD ON FIRE
I JUST WANT TO START
A FLAME IN YOUR HEART
I HAVE BUT ONE DESIRE
AND THAT ONE IS YOU
NO OTHER WILL DO
I’VE LOST ALL AMBITION
FOR WORLDLY ACCLAIM
I JUST WANT TO BE
THE ONE YOU LOVE
AND WITH YOUR ADMISSION
THAT YOU FEEL THE SAME
I’LL HAVE REACHED THE GOAL
I’M DREAMING OF
BELIEVE ME
I DON’T WANT TO SET THE WORLD ON FIRE
I JUST WANT TO START
A FLAME IN YOUR HEART

Lyrics [verse]:
IF YOUR HEART'S IN DOUBT,
MY LOVE,
WORRIED ABOUT MY LOVE,
THEN ALL YOUR FEAR
IS ONLY FOOLISH FANCY,
DEAR.

[Chorus]:
IF I DIDN'T CARE
MORE THAN WORDS
CAN SAY,
IF I DIDN'T CARE,
WOULD I FEEL
THIS WAY?
IF THIS ISN'T LOVE,
THEN MAYBE I'M WRONG;
BUT WHY DO I LIE AWAKE
ALL NIGHT
AND DREAM
ALL DAY LONG?
IF I DIDN'T CARE,
WOULD IT BE THE SAME?
WOULD MY EV'RY PRAY'R
BEGIN AND END
WITH JUST YOUR NAME?
AND WOULD I BE SURE
THIS IS LOVE
BEYOND COMPARE?
WOULD ALL THIS BE TRUE
IF I DIDN'T CARE
FOR YOU?
