I'm a man on fire
Walking through your street
With one guitar
And two dancing feet
Only one desire
That's left in me
I want the whole damn world
To come dance with me

(Ohhh. Come dance with me)

I'm a hunter at bay
Come and set you free
Over heartache and shame

I wanna see our bodies burning like the old big sun
I wanna know what we've been learning and learning from

Everybody want safety (safety love)
Everybody want comfort (comfort love)
Everybody want certain (certain love)
Everybody but me

I'm a man on fire
Walking down your street
With one guitar
And two dancing feet
Only one desire
That's left in me
I want the whole damn world
To come and dance with me

(Bah bah bah bah bah...)

Yay, yay. Come dance with me
Over heartache and rage
Come set us free
Over panic and strange

I wanna see our bodies burning like the old big sun
I wanna know what we've been learning and learning from

Everybody want romance (romance love)
Everybody want safety (safety love)
Everybody want comfort (comfort love)
Everybody but me

I'm a man on fire (he's a man on fire)
Walking down your street (walking down your street)
With one guitar (With one guitar)
And two dancing feet (two dancing feet)
Only one desire (one desire)
That's still in me (that's left in me)
I want the whole damn world (I want the whole damn world)
To come and dance with me (come and dance with me yeahhh...)

    I'm a man on fire
    Walkin' through your street
    With one guitar and two dancin' feet
    Only one desire that's left in me
    I want the whole damn world to come dance with me

    Ohhh come dance with me
    Over murder and pain
    Come and set us free
    Over heartache and shame
    I want to see your bodies burning like old big sun
    I want to know what we've been learning and learning from

    Everybody wants safety (safety love)
    Everybody wants comfort (comfort love)
    Everybody wants certain (certain love)
    Everybody but me

    I'm a man on fire (he's a man on fire)
    Walking down your street (walking down your street)
    With one guitar (with one guitar)
    And two dancin' feet (two dancin' feet)
    Only one desire (one desire)
    That's left in me (that's left in me)
    I want the whole damn world (i want the whole damn world)
    To come dance with me (to come dance with me)

    Ohhh, come dance with me
    Over heartache and rage
    Come and set us free
    Over panic and strange
    I wanna see your bodies burning like old big sun
    I wanna know what we've been learnin' and learnin' from

    Everybody wants safety (safety love)
    Everybody wants comfort (comfort love)
    Everybody wants certain (certain love)
    Everybody but me

    I'm a man on fire (he's a man on fire)

    That's left in me (that's left in me)
    I want the whole damn world (i want the whole damn world)
    To come dance with me (to come dance with me)
