When the Night's on Fire
Mike Oldfield Lyrics


(I was hoping) Could you be my inspiration?
Whatever should become in the candlelight.
(I was dreaming) Was it my imagination?
Tomorrow never comes in the candlelight.

[Chorus 1]
When the night's on fire,
Do you need love's arms to hold you?
It's a flame, there burns no finer.
When you see one bird,
There's another one watching over,
And the two can fly much higher.
I was listening to the wind that walks the hours.
I never would have heard, in the candlelight.
I was hoping, would you shelter me from showers?
I believe every word in the candlelight.

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2]
When the night's on
Fire and you burn,
Like a flame that's burning in the rain,
Do you need somewhere to turn?
When you see one bird,
It's the two that fly higher;
And a second in heaven's worth a whole life's.
Trouble and trial.
Trouble and trial.

[Chorus 2]

When's the night's on fire,
Do you need love's arms to hold you? (When the night's on fire)
When you see one bird fly,
There's another one watching over. (When the night's on fire)
When the night's on fire.
It's a flame, there burns no finer. (When the night's on fire)
When you see one bird fly,
It's the two that fly much higher. (When the night's on fire)

(I was hoping) Could you be my inspiration?
Whatever should become in the candlelight.
(I was dreaming) Was it my imagination?
Tomorrow never comes in the candlelight.

When the night's on fire,
Do you need love's arms to hold you?
It's a flame, there burns no finer.
When you see one bird,
There's another one watching over,
And the two can fly much higher.
I was listening to the wind that walks the hours.
I never would have heard, in the candlelight.
I was hoping, would you shelter me from showers?
I believe every word in the candlelight.

When the night's on
Fire and you burn,
Like a flame that's burning in the rain,
Do you need somewhere to turn?
When you see one bird,
It's the two that fly higher;
And a second in heaven's worth a whole life's.
Trouble and trial.
Trouble and trial.

When's the night's on fire,
Do you need love's arms to hold you? (When the night's on fire)
When you see one bird fly,
There's another one watching over. (When the night's on fire)
When the night's on fire.
It's a flame, there burns no finer. (When the night's on fire)
When you see one bird fly,
It's the two that fly much higher. (When the night's on fire)

It seems that Mike wrote some different melodies and arrangements after recording this with Barry Palmer. This is super and Anita sings it excellently.
