Faithfull, Marianne - I'm On Fire Lyrics

I'm on fire
When I was young
Just for you
And my heart was pure
Such desire
I only wanted love
Just for you
I had allure
Still on fire
High heels ideals
Just for you
And not much fear
My desire
It's easy
Still for you
To make love appear

And then something sent me
For what they had meant to do
Whatever happened to you?

I'm on fire
Just for you
No more pain
Such desire
Just for you

And love did come
But in such disguise
That I could
Hardly recognise

I'm on fire
So with trust in fate
Just for you
And love of life
Such desire
Take my chance
Just for you
Roll the dice

And whatever sent me
I'll still be here for you
Whatever happens, it's true

And I'm standing still
Try to show the way
Try to change the stage

I only had to find the key
Surely love would come to me
You'd look into my glittering eyes
And everything will be all right

And so time passed
I began to change
I found that I
Could love again

I'm on fire
At first it feels
Just for you
A little strange
Such desire
Just for you
No more pain
Still on fire
Still on fire
No more pain
Still on fire
Still on fire
No more pain
Still on fire

  22. Helena Garcia

    what is the name of the artist?

  23. γιωτα μποφ

    Hey little girl is your daddy home
    Did he go away and leave you all alone
    I got a bad desire
    Im on fire

    Tell me now baby is he good to you
    Can he do to you the things that I do
    I can take you higher
    Im on fire

    Sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby
    Edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
    Through the middle of my soul

    At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
    And a freight train running through the
    Middle of my head
    Only you can cool my desire
    Im on fire

  24. mandy cappleman

  35. liveandmore

    This is heaven!

  36. David Joy

    @dadswizz I know exactly what you mean. I know Marianne is one of the greats.

  37. A Whiter Shade of Pail

    Great lamentation/maturation song. Marianne's use of her wistfully sweet, gin-soaked voice is genius.

    Young lovers take note: This song is a great testament of a person's love through the ages, though (he/she) finally does reach happiness, even after ostensible heartbreak and failure.

    "I only had to find the key
    Surely love would come to me
    You'd look into my glittering eyes
    And everything will be all right

    And so time passed
    I began to change.
    I found that I
    Could love again"
