Jefferson Starship – I'm On Fire lyrics

Oh, Jesus we live in such a special place

What do we do to deserve this fate

How long can it it last what must be done

To keep it like heaven for our little children

I'm on fire

I'm on fire

Falling in love in times of war

I'm on fire

This is for Kennedy

This is for love

This is for Tienanmen square

This is for America

Falling in love in times of war

These are the days for remembering

Kennedy King Tienanmen square

These are names worth remembering

I'm on fire

I'm on fire

Falling in love in times of war

I'm on fire

I walked strange shores in search of my country

I been away talking to the aliens

If we don't do something soon

The earth is gonna look just like the moon

I'm on fire

I'm on fire

Falling in love in times of war

I'm on fire

Where were you when the word was changing

Where were you when the passion was new

Stand a little closer to the fire

These are times worth remembering

Setting my tongue on fire

Writing in the book of people

My guitar it will not sleep

Remembering all the people..... The warriors

I'm on fire

I'm on fire

The bravest of all are falling in love

People on fire

From the red square to the Berlin wall

The Baltic sea to the streets of Managua

People on fire... Words on fire

I'm on fire.... Worlds on fire

Next is Washington

Next is America

I'm on fire...........!!!
