Hartman, Dan - Vertigo / Relight My Fire Lyrics

Help me escape this feelin' of insecurity
I need you so much but I don't think you really need me
But if we all stand up in the name of love
And state the case of what we're dreamin' of
I've got to say I only dream of you
But like a thief in the night
You took away the love that I knew

Relight my fire
Your love is my only desire
Relight my fire
'Cause I need your love

Turn back the times 'til the days when our love was new
Do you remember?
No matter what was happenin' I was there with you
But if we all stand up for what we believe
And maybe live within our possibilities
The world would be wild for the dream
So baby don't turn away
Listen to what I gotta say

Relight my fire
Your love is my only desire
Relight my fire
'Cause I need your love
Relight my fire
Your love is my only desire
Relight my fire
'Cause I need your love

You gotta be sure enough to walk on through the night (yeah)
There's a new day on the other side (yeah)
'Cause I got hope (hope) in my soul
I keep on walkin', keep on walkin' baby

Relight my fire
Your love is my only desire
Relight my fire
'Cause I need your love

Hartman, Dan Vertigo / Relight My Fire Comments
  1. John Zeller

    Danced my butt off to music like this at the Gemini Disco in Yorktown Heights,N. Y. back in the mid 70s. Man do I miss those days!

  2. Bill Globe

    Got to be strong enough to walk all through the night, into a new day on the other side!

  3. DJ Hutcherson

    My favorite part is from 8:47 to 9:03...those strings are so beautiful!!!

  4. damian latimer

    thiis song played at the beginning of The Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder in the 1979-1980 season

  5. D. R. Cole

    An anthem of pure faith and joy when we needed it.........and we still do now. I love this artist.

  6. Bonita Knierim

    If you were there during the height of the Disco era in the 70s, you know what an adrenaline rush felt like dancing to music like this. You were getting a real physical workout and didn't even know it, lol but it was great as hell! Best time ever!

  7. Jay Blue

    this ain't right......CHI-TOWN U BETTA STAND DA FUNK UP!!!!!!!

  8. Anthony Gatta

    The quintessential go to, never fail song for the past three decades!

  9. Fabricio Rodrigues

  12. G P

    OMG! I remember dancing to this classic many times when it came. 💖💖💖

  13. Tony Vaughn

    One of the greatest club songs of all time!

  14. Michael O'Connor Jr.

    R.I.P. Dan Hartman! You could do it all; engineer, produce, bass, guitar, keyboards, piano and drums. Thank You for giving the world one of my favorite songs "Free Ride" when you were with the Edgar Winter Group.

  15. Marcus Aurelio

    **Celebrating the 42nd anniversary of Studio 54**

  16. Paul Kane

    When Dan breaks into Relight My Fire, it still gives me chills.

  17. Michael Gabriel

    The best to walk into a club back in the day and hearing this come on !
    I have to to the bar !! Later

  18. kelcey mccray


  19. Craig Peyton

    Loved working & playing on this track w Dan. He said it would be a big hit, even before the lyrics! RIP Dan, you were a giant!!

  20. Rob Connors

    Night Gallery Disco Brooklyn NY

  21. Tab Utu

    If you can get a hold of Classic Disco Mastercuts Volume 1 I highly recommend it. It opens with this & then just gets better.


    when this song kicks in at 3:10 i am back once more dancing the night away!

  23. Bradley Paulus

    More wonderful disco! There is nothing like it - it lives forever.

  24. Johnny MFan

    Relight My Fire seems like a sequel to Instant Replay. The passion of Instant Replay burned out and now he wants to get things going on again.

  25. John D

    ....and at 2:56 , was my introduction to the song. I didn't know for the longest that a song that makes me think of Tom Snyder, was really a longer track that obviously makes others think of disco, dance floors, and a few other things I missed. Dan and Miss Holloway, you truly left us with a great one, and a big colortini-cheers to Tom Snyder--you sir, are very much missed!

  26. patricky9

    Dan Hartman = amazing !!!!!

  27. Andre Cureton

    Omg this take me back in time when we were care free not goibg to the clubs without getting killed Dan music was the best omg and yes even in the hood we Danced our asses off his music the best dance moves omg !!!!

  39. shannon stewart

    To those who enjoyed this song who MAY be a lil young listen to another old song called
    "Loving is really my game". Dont know who sing it but its old and will make you move and feel happy. A maybe just maybe a lil gay lol. I secretly fell in love with the song and it turns me into a str8 punk🤣

    I knew when I heard this song for the first time that I had struck gold. This music is beautiful I’m a million ways Dan Hartman is truly one of the best. Was :( but his music lives on and so does he in our hearts. Such a shame his music career is so hard to find footage of

    I was 2 when this song came out. Whenever there was a 2 or 3 hr disco block on the radio in the years since, this song was always on the playlist. This song is...the only word I can come up with to do it justice is "majestic". It's just that damn good.

  49. James Carlo

    Damn this song is so amazing totally energized me almost missed my stop 😁

  79. Bonita Knierim

    One of the best intros into a phenominal song...kind of like foreplay, just waiting for it.... Even after all these years, still makes you want to get up and dance your ass off. Great song, nothing today offers this.

  86. DanVR

    Someone commented "We like papaya" and now I can't unhear it.

  87. nyneanderthal

    I remember when i went to the clubs in 1979 i danced so much I had to go outside and ring my shirt out it was soaked, had a smoke and went back to dance some more and when the clubs closed we went to the after hours clubs and got home like 10am, those were the days, makes these days look very boring comparatively.

  88. David Laidlaw

    Unfortunately people think its an original track by Take That.NoNo we were all dancing to this years ago and Loeatta Holloways vocal smashes anything lulu could do i love this

  89. Melvin Bennett

    When we danced and drank/smoked/snorted the nights away. V.I.P North, 2001 Pittsburgh,
    Heaven (Pgh.) The Ritz in Monroeville and the Spare Room (North HIlls).

    it not just disco ...
    it’s the sound system

    mind altering !!!
    i was like a deer-in-the-headlights
    Watching a UFO 🛸 landing


    One of the most iconic intro in disco history.....thanx for the disco memories. .RIP my friend.
