"Dancer in the Fire" as written by and Paul Brady....
The last time I saw you
Was the spring of '75
And way back then I was afraid
To look you in the eye
Yes, even then I found it hard to
To look you in the eye

Come a-running to me with your soul in your hand
Like a child who knew no fear
With such a need to be alive
I was scared to get too near
With such a need to be alive
I was scared to get too near

You burned so bright into the night
A dancer in the fire
I wished I had your nerve back then
But I was scared to walk the wire
Yes, I was scared to walk the wire
I was afraid to walk the wire

And now it's three years later
You're still eager for the game
But your eyes can't hide the times you tried
To live too near to the flame
Your eyes can't hide the tears you cried
When you got too near the flame

But to you it makes no difference
Just how many times you fall
For you've seen the freedom through the flame
And you can't resist the call
You've seen the freedom through the flame
And you want to taste it all

You burn so bright into the night
A dancer in the fire
I wish I had your nerve right now
But I'm still scared to walk the wire
Yes, I'm still scared to walk the wire
I'm still afraid to walk the wire

The last time I saw you
Was the spring of '75
And way back then I was afraid
Of dancing in the fire
And even now I can't reach out
To join you on the wire
