"Soul On Fire" as written by and J. Spaceman....
You were born on a black day
Shot through with starlight
And all the angels singing
Just about got it right

Cut through the silver
And goodness did heaven know
I don't know where we?re going
But darling bless your soul

Baby, set my soul on fire.
I've got two little arms to hold on tight and I want to take you higher.
Baby, never should say never.
I've got a hurricane inside my veins and I want to stay forever.

Sweetheart, may not be easy
But we're trying hard to hold on
Trying to make it better
Sweetheart, got so much freedom
But freedom is just another word
When you've no-one left to hurt.
and i said

Baby, set my soul on fire.
I've got two little arms to hold on tight and I want to take you higher.
Baby, never should say never.
I've got a hurricane inside my veins and I want to stay forever.

Baby, set my soul on fire.
I've got two little arms to hold on tight and I want to take you higher.
Baby, never should say never.
I've got a hurricane inside my veins and I want to stay forever.

I've got two little arms to hold on tight and I want to stay forever.

I've got a hurricane inside my veins and I want to stay forever.

    General CommentApparently not all that obvious, supernuke.

    SHE doesn't set his soul on fire...Heroin does.
    Two pretty obvious examples:
    "I got a hurricane inside my veins and i wanna stay forever" -> Heroin in veins
    "cut through with silver" -> Needle cutting through skin

    Not to mention that most Spiritualized songs deal with Heroin.

    General CommentSong is pretty clearly about heroin. The lyrics about veins as someone already mentioned.... Also the line "got two little arms to hold on tight" - to me - conjures up an image of somebody tying off. This all can be about love, too, though (I've never done heroin myself, but I'd bet there is some overlap between it and the rush of love).. maybe that overlap is what this song is about.

    General CommentGrandiosa canción. Yo creo que esta canción trata acerca de la emoción que siente un padre cuando acaba de tener a un hijo o hija.
