Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Man On Fire – ‘Come dance with me’

Standard

An uplifting song and video from one of my favourite bands. The expressions on the faces in this video are really moving.

These are the lyrics:

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

(ohhhhhhhh. 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 yeahhhhh…)
