Ladyhawke - Back Of The Van Lyrics




In the dark, in the back of the van
Cautiously, holding your hand
Making eyes, making everything alright
Being home, being all alone
Feeling sad watching the phone
Singing out, singing everything's alright

You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire

In the dark in the back of the van
Cautiously, holding your hand
Making eyes, making everything alright
When I'm out, when I'm far away
Wanting you, wanting to stay
Singing out, singing everything's alright

You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire

When I wake and I'm far away, I know that you're leaving
In the dark when I'm all alone, I'm scared that you're leaving
When I wake and I'm far away, I know that you're leaving
In the dark when I'm all alone, I'm scared that you're leaving

Cause you set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire
You set me on, you set me on, you set me on fire

  8. John Hunt

    Fucking beautiful song

  9. Pat Mar

    as a massive fan of LH's self titled album (one of the greatest albums ever made) its almost an impossible decision to decide my favourite song from it, but for now in 2018 im going with this, because this is a fucking epic music video. its just like a time machine taking me back to the 80s watching this music show in Australia called Rage video clips of bands like the Bangles, Fleetwood Mac, artists so goddam beautiful hair all teased and highlighted like Blondie, Stevie Nicks. Literally as a child these women were living goddess on tv. the director of this video borrows from this era, paying such homage with his or her attention to detail. it absolutely kicks arse.

  10. SongBillong

    Ten years on and this is still gorgeous. Timeless track!

  11. ASAELO

  71. editmangiffard

    Anyone else get a kinda Cheesy 80's vibe from this video?

  72. editmangiffard

    Why bother looking up then?...

  73. sgx2000

    second coming of Chrissie Hynde?

  74. Pasi Palosaari

    Many of those who lived through the 80s want to bury the decade into oblibion. Maybe that's why. =)

  75. knolan101

    Good point re genre-crossing and I agree re the 80s. First time I heard this I was sure it was Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders.

  76. Alex U Rock ImI

    excelente cancion, excellent song

  77. Miami2Vegas

    You Set Me On Fire :)

    "Morning Dreams" is my favourite - don't miss that one

  80. Acuariorip

    LIKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE♫♫♫

  81. Jacob Miller

    CAUSE YOU SET ME ON, YOU SET ME ON, YOU SET ME ON FIREEEEEE!

  82. EduardoMacena13

    @MoralNihilism I know wy this happened. Her album was not released in many places on the world. Including my country, wich is Brazil. And how do I knew about her music? Because of a brazilian TV program called "TVZ Experimente" that brings some musics around the world... And I saw her videoclip... Saddly, they excluded the program...
    I've found her album on the internet and bought it, and I wasn't disappointed with it.
    I hope she releases her new album worldwide :)
    Merry Xmas 2 U

  83. Poprocks

    Ladyhawke is so underrated. Still love this song everytime I hear it.

  84. Aiden Paparoa

  89. RaZoR WrAiTh

    @SerenaRoberson lmao,hialrious

  90. catatuga

    lovin' it!

  91. Filip Galetic

    @MoralNihilism

    she didnt have enough money pumped into her. lady kaka was supposed to go the same way, but then her label came to the radio stations and pumped and pumped them with cash. poker face wasnt an instant hit, it was just heavily promoted for months.

  92. Aiden Paparoa

    I got laid to this song!

  93. VB_NZ

    any chance of uploading at the correct aspect ratio?

  94. Carlos Tellier

    for some reason she reminds me of Courtney Love
