Marianne Faithfull – I'm On Fire lyrics

I'm on fire
When I was young
Just for you
And my heart was pure
Such desire
I only wanted love
Just for you
I had allure
Still on fire
High heels ideals
Just for you
And not much fear
My desire
It's easy
Still for you
To make love appear.

And then something sent me
For what they had meant to do
Whatever happened to you?

I'm on fire
Happiness
Just for you.
No more pain
Such desire
Happiness
Just for you.

And love did come
But in such disguise -
That I could
Hardly recognise!

I'm on fire
So with trust in fate
Just for you.
And love of life
Such desire
Take my chance
Just for you.
Roll the dice.

And whatever sent me
I'll still be here for you.
Whatever happens, it's true.

And I'm standing still
Try to show the way
Try to change the stage.

I only had to find the key
Surely love would come to me
You'd look into my glittering eyes
And everything will be all right.

And so time passed.
I began to change.
I found that I
Could love again.

I'm on fire
At first it feels
Just for you.
A little strange -
Such desire
Happiness
Just for you.
No more pain.
Still on fire
Happiness
Still on fire
No more pain.
Still on fire
Happiness
Still on fire
No more pain.
Still on fire
