Bad Company - No Smoke Without A Fire Lyrics

Ooh, you're like a book with a page torn out
You can turn from a whisper to a shout, ooh yeah
You come running just as fast as you can, into the arms of another man, yeah

But you can do what you wanna do now, tell me what you wanna say
You can take what you wanna take, babe, take it all away

Oh, there's no smoke without a fire, and there's no heat without a flame
Oh, there's no love without desire, but I won't play your games

Ooh, you've got the looks that can turn a head
You've got a turn that can leave a man dead, ooh yeah
You keep tellin' me our love is alright
You disappear, you don't come home all night

Just tell me what you wanna do now, tell me where you wanna go
It's your life, you can do what you want, baby let me know


Please don't ask me why
'Cos I can't quite explain, I'm like a moth to your flame


Yeah, just tell me what you wanna do now, tell me where you wanna go
It's your life, you can do what you want, baby let me know, yeah

[Chorus] - let's talk about it

[Chorus repeats out]

Bad Company No Smoke Without A Fire Comments
  1. Truman Lamberson

    Love this song

  2. Joshua Beyers

    I don't know why but the intro to this song always reminds me of a 1988 detective/vice movie lol.

  3. New Waver

    Take that, Paul Rogers! This dude sings circles around you.

  4. Brian Underwood

    Very few singers really stand out. Lou Gramm of Foreigner. Steve Perry of Journey. And Brian Howe, who made 4 albums with Bad Co. Those singers will never be forgotten. They are the best of the best.

    Seth Hughes

    Not discounting the fact that Paul Rodgers is, and always has been among the most gifted and prominent front men in Rock and Roll history.

    Brian Underwood

    Seth Hughes—Paul Rodgers is an alright singer. But he doesn’t have the vocal range of Gramm, Perry, and Howe. Rodgers is not even close.

    Seth Hughes

    ok.... Gramm and Perry, done. Howe ??? I like them all... I agree with your first post, the answer to mine.... we could debate for awhile. It is worth mentioning that there are over 25 today, young, extraordinary dynamic range, etc. who will surpass one or another in the end. My opinion only was that P.R. is in that 25 today still, barely, but there. Have a nice day.

  5. joan dingledine

    Just seen Bad Company August 2nd Awesome. Paul Rogers rocked the house

  6. Nestor Machno

  10. Ricky Pisano

    This record was as good as anything they did with Paul. My humble opinion.

  11. David Downs

    Bad Co the best Rock / Roll Band

  12. Jon Visser

    Kicks ass

  13. Jeffrey Wallis

    this was bad co's best song without paul rodgers. good effort lads, but paul rodgers is irreplaceable

  14. Anki Hansen

    Feels like I'm walking on Holy Water!

  15. TheJooomes

    1:17 What are these magical chords!? They sound so familiar, yet so new!

  16. randall scott burress


  17. Robert Rausch

    I know this band....have seen every lineup since inception.....This is there BEST song.....TURN IT UP..!!!!!😎

  18. Dios Sea Contigo

    I liked all the Bad Company versions - for me the band was Mick, he was in each version. Paul takes too much credit, way too much.

  19. Kiril Chemetovskiy

    Лайк кто смотрит в 2018

  20. Kevyn Hansyn

    For the over 20 years I known of this song, I always thought it was called "Die Hard".

  21. 3 hundred years ago

    I won't play your games...

  22. Rodney Brown

    can anyone tell me what cd i can find this song on?

    Michael Seay

    Rodney Brown Dangerous Age

    ben brown

    The cover is what the video shows....Bad Company Dangerous Age.......Holy Water is another good song off of this album...Something about you is mine and my wife's
    song.....awesome love song.

    Michael Seay

    ben brown Holy Water is a different album entirely, not on this one.

  23. Rodney Brown

    Caution!!! Do not listen to while driving

  24. runingblackbear

    they need to be in the rock n roll hall of fame cause this is real rock n roll back in 74

  25. Heidi Braham


  26. kylebuschfan100

    Paul Rodgers is the only voice for Bad Company!

    Brian Ezell

    Agreed. Bad Company isn’t Bad Company without Paul Rodgers.

  27. johnny woodie

    Paul Rogers or not, Bad Co. was/is AWESOME!!!!!!

  28. Powerage Scott

    Great band with or without Rogers.


    i'm torn, i like this song but i think its a lil disrespectful to call this Bad Co without Paul Rodgers BUT i may have never heard it otherwise, kna' mean?

  30. Shane Purveyor

    Please Help the Messiah bring More of the Spirit of God, to the World, The Messiah will Pray to the Father for us to have the Spirit of God, for a Teacher, and Comforter Forever, in the Bible book of John, chapter 14, verse 26.. The Book of John, chapters 14, 15, and 16, Teach us how to have the Spirit of Truth, Make a Home within us... Please hear the Messiah Speak about Spiritual Rebirth... Peace


    Shane Purveyor STFU......

    Shane Purveyor

    Do not, in any way infringe upon my right to free speech..... Why is the Head of Google in deep sh#t with the Feds.....? This is very Spiritual Music to Me, I will say what I want, when I want, How I want, Just as you have...


    Shane Purveyor Go Hit Your Crack Pipe Again And Shut The Fuck Up......

  31. joe Recto

    A different direction for the revamped Bad Company....I bought the CD when it was released. As a Die-Hard Bad Co. fan from the get-go.... I was not disappointed.

  32. tarasded

    This sounds pretty generic late 80s material. Decent song, nonetheless...but it's Bad Company only by name. The original bad co had a timeless sound.

  33. sleaze metal

    Now we're jamming.

  34. Jose luis Salazar

    BAD COMPANY forever 👏‼️‼️‼️

  35. kkash72

    This may be a good song but I'm sorry, Bad Company is and always will be Paul Rodgers. They should have never used the name just to sell records.

  36. Susan Szabo

    No more songs like this any more

  37. Bill Blissett

    Weep no more bad company 1996

  53. bob ward

    I'm old and i am ok with it because the bet band came out of the 70s and 80s

  54. Michelle Suiter

    It's ridiculous that Bad Company's not in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. They were the pioneers of Arena Rock for crying out loud! Then again, the RRHoF is notoriously biased. No matter, us fans know how AWESOME Bad Company is!

    Mark Isaac

    Ed Keene they are bought

    Bradley Bacon


    Jason Goodman

    Michelle Suiter your so right..
