You Light My Fire
Nate Ruess Lyrics


I wanna throw the fight and kiss away your pain tonight
But that would only make this harder
She can't stand to sleep alone
Oh no and I hate losing so
I wait till we get tired

Well the could outside knows we can't be alone
So I throw my arms right beside hers
Then I close my eyes lean in for something more
And you light my fire

As your heartbeat keeps me warm
We take Fourth Street cross corners to the bar
Where I slurred convinced we could make it brighter

I know we're not as young as we'd like to be
But I like to think you're bound to get the best of me
C'mon babe your love gets me high

I know one day I'll fall for an oath
I just spend all my life trying to find her
But I burned down every door I'd ever shut
When you light my fire

I wanna throw the fight and kiss away your pain tonight
But that would only make this better

I know one day I'll fall for an oath
I just spend all of my life on the run looking over my shoulder
Now I burn down every door I ever shut
When you light my fire

I wrote LMF really quickly on my way to the studio cause we were moving fast on recording the songs I'd already written, and I knew Jeff would be upset if I didn't have anything else. Little did I know it'd turn into one of my favorites. 

I'd always wanted to write a prince/cure type song since the format days- but never had something that felt as simple and right as this one. 

The only lyrics I randomly sang on the original demo were "you light my fire" and Jeff and Emile weren't sure if it was cool cause those were already doors lyrics. I thought they were particularly cool because of that. And that's why I ended up writing the world "door" into the song. 

Josh Klinghoffer did an amazing job on guitar and kinda helped change the direction of the track for the better. And the grand romantic unsung hero (our engineer) Andrew Sarlo put down an amazing bass track to compliment the guitars. 

It's one of the "in love" tracks on grand ro- and has some of my favorite lines ("I've spent all my life on the run looking over my shoulder")- but the first verse (much like NWL) hints at some potential turmoil.

Nate Ruess A few years ago I begged my husband to buy me tickets to see Fun. He did & I was beyond ecstatic. We drove to Stubbs in Austin & saw you standing on the curb before the show. My hubby hit the brakes on his truck & yelled "get out & say hi". I panicked & didnt. Worst mistake of my life. I had no words to say to you. None that would be enough. That concert was truly life changing & I will never forget it. I will, however, kick myself til the day I die for missing even the slightest chance to meet you. Thank you Nate. Here's to hoping I will see you again.

I just think it's sad that so few people know about Nate. He's honestly my favorite artist…
