Subject: Lyr Req: One Guitar, Two Feet

This is one of those songs you hear a snatch of on the radio while driving, no title given... that you just HAVE to have because it says it ALL.

I have about a minute and a half of it in MP3 format, because I was able to hit record on my player as I blew thru rush hour, but it is not clear enough or long enough to get much more than the beat and the stong, playful melody. (Can email; PM for addy.)


Clues:

"dance with me"

It was in a World Music segment on NPR I think;

It was on Rochester NY radio 88.5 on Thursday afternoon;

I believe the singer's idea is that he's busking on a corner and wants not only the various peeps passing by to dance (whatever their sitch,but in fact the whole world.


Any help appreciated,

~Susan

I am a man on fire
Walkin' through your street
With one guitar, two dancing feet
Only one desire that's left in me
Want the whole damn world to come dance with me
Come dance with me
Murder and pain
Come set you free
Oh hardly can change
On see our bodies burning like old big sun
Only one .. deep burning from
Everybody wants safety
Everybody wants comfort
Everybody wants certain
Everybody but me
I am a man on fire
Of the . street
With one guitar two dancing feet
Only one desire that is left in me
Hold on that road to come dance with me
Come dance with me
Yeah
Come dance with me
Murder and pain
Come set you free
Oh hardly can change
Won't see our bodies burning like old big sun
Only one .. deep burning from
Everybody wants safety
Everybody wants comfort
Everybody wants certain
Everybody but me
I am a man on fire
Of the . street
With one guitar two dancing feet
Only one desire that is left in me
Hold on that road to come dance with me
Come dance with me
Yeah

If that's it, it was done by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. The title is "Man on Fire".

THANK YOU!

I'm working on a straight-up Gospel adaptation, about Vocation/Call.

The lyric they are singing at YouTube and on my radio-recorded snippet area each a bit different from the above and from each other (Bruce-- where didja get 'em?).

I've begun transcribing what I have. The album this appears on (HOME) is due for May 29 release-- I must have heard the pre-release promo copy on the radio.

Here is what I have so far-- more ears welcome-- to work from.

I am a man on fire
Walkin' to 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
Oh, oh come dance with me

Oh, all the heartache and shame
Come set us free
All the murder and pain
I want to see our bodies burning like old big suns
I want to see everybody burning like old big suns

La da....
Everybody wants safety
Everybody wants certain
Everybody wants comfort
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 dance with me

La da....
Come dance with me
Yeah
Come dance with me
Oh, all the heartache and shame
Come set us free
All the murder and pain
I want to see your bodies burning like old big suns
I want to know what I've been lovin' burning like old big suns

Everybody wants safety
Everybody wants certain
Everybody wants perfect
Everybody but me

I am a man on fire
I'm walkin' down your street
With one guitar, and two dancing feet
Only one desire that's left in me
I want the whole damn room to come dance with me
Oh, to come dance with me
