Growin' up - you don't see the writing on the wall.
Passin' by
Movin' straight ahead you knew it all.
But maybe sometime if you feel the pain

You'll find you're all alone
Everything has changed.

Play the game - you know you can't quit until it's won.
Soldier of only you can do what must be done.
You know
In some ways you're a lot like me

You're just a prisoner and you're tryin' to break free.

I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky

I'll be where the eagles flying higher and higher.
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels.
Take me where the fututre's lying; St. Elmo's fire.

Burning up - don't know just how far that I can go.
Soon be home - only just a few miles down the road.
And I can make it
I know I can

You broke the boy in me
But you won't break the man.
I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky

I'll be where the eagles flying higher and higher.
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels.
Take me where the fututre's lying; St. Elmo's fire.

I can climb the highest mountain
Cross the wildest sea

I can feel St. Elmo's fire burning in me
Burning in me.

Just once in his life a man has his time

And my time is now
I'm coming alive.

I can hear the music playin'
I can see the banners fly

Feel like a vet again
I hope I ain't high !
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels

Take me where the futures lying; St. Elmo's fire.

I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky

I'll be where the eagles flying higher and higher.
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels.
Take me where the fututre's lying; St. Elmo's fire.
I can climb the highest mountain
Cross the wildest sea

I can feel St. Elmo's fire burning in me
Burning in me.
Burning
Burning in me
I can feel it burning

Burning inside of me.
