DANCING IN THE FIRE
Melissa Etheridge


I think my heart was designed to fade and lose color

To turn inside out and wash in the rain

It loses all perfection in cold water

So the desired look is obtained



And it rises higher and higher

Like this filthy heat above the city sky

And I feel like I'm going mad dancing in the fire

As if I'm only here to prove there are mountains I could move



So love is spent dancing in the fire

Too high the cost and too quick the pain

And all that's left for the outsider

Is ashes from dancing in the fire



I think my eyes were made for deception

Interpreting lovers will call what they want the truth

With all I have seen burning behind these mirrors

The reflection they see is all that I pursue



And it rises higher and higher

Like this filthy heat above the city sky

And I feel like I'm going mad dancing in the fire

As if I'm only here to prove there are mountains I could move



So love is spent dancing in the fire

Too high the cost and too quick the pain

And all that's left for the outsider

Ashes from dancing in the fire



And voices get louder

And the air's too thick to breathe

Still I lie awake and I wait for the unknown power

Dying for want of sleep



I think my life line was stolen from a movie

The one where they are trying to solve the crime

But this prisoner is always one step before them

And everyone's running trying to stop me in time



And it keeps rising higher and higher

Like this filthy heat above the city sky

And I feel like I'm going mad dancing in the fire

As if I'm only here to prove

There are lovers I could move



Oh love is spent dancing in the fire

Too high the cost and too quick the pain

And all that's left for the outsider

Ashes from dancing in the fire
