"Light the Match" as written by and Mirah Tom Tov Zeitlyn....
want to start a fire in your heart tonight
Oh tell me why do i so yearn to cause trouble?
I need you to be mine in the summertime
When the days are long and the nights are slow and sweet

But why do you turn and shield your eyes?
Do i burn too brightly?
Oh, don't take my love lightly, for i mean every word

You flicker, you amaze me
Your lips illuminate me
I want your eyes to tell me I'm the only flame
My glow it will attract you, my smoke will push you back
Until you call again please arsonist attack

But why do you turn and shield your eyes?
Do i burn too brightly?
Oh, don't take my love lightly, for i mean every word

I'll just light the match
And the flames will catch

But why do you turn and shield your eyes?
Do i burn too brightly?
Oh, don't take my love lightly, for i mean every word

    General Commentwow..I'm really surprised no one has commented on this song. The lyrics are pretty meaningful, I think it means that she's addressing someone afraid of going into a relationship and saying that she really wants to be with the person. The instrumental is pretty amazing by itself.

    General CommentI agree with dramatic on the meaning, and I've been in that situation before, myself...I'm still waiting for someone who is willing to be blinded by my light rather than turn away from it. :P
