Livin' with my eyes closed, goin' day to day
I never knew the difference, I never cared either way
Lookin' for a reason, searchin' for a sign
Reachin' out with both hands, I gotta feel the kick inside
All fired up
Now I believe there comes a time
All fired up
When everything just falls in line
All fired up
We live an' learn from our mistakes
All fired up, fired up, fired up, hey

Ain't nobody livin', in a perfect world
Everybody's out there, cryin' to be heard
Now I got a new fire, burnin' in my eyes
Lightin' up the darkness, movin' like a meteorite

All fired up
Now I believe there comes a time
All fired up
When everything just falls in line
All fired up
We live an' learn from our mistakes
All fired up, fired up, fired up
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an' learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith

Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an' learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an' learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an' learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
Now I believe

All fired up
Now I believe there comes a time
All fired up
When everything just falls in line
All fired up
We live an' learn from our mistakes
All fired up, fired up, fired up
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an' learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith

    I was just listening again casually, and the thought of him being drugs "popped" into my mind.

    General CommentThis song is about Harry's grandparents. What about I can't remember. But the performance by Pat Benatar at the 1987 tribute concert (On CD) is also amazing.

    General CommentIt sounds like a wife whose genius husband is suffering from Dementia or Alzheimers. A brilliant man whose vision went beyond the conventional, while she kept him grounded in reality. He was the sun - shining bright, and she was the moon, reflecting his light back to earth.

    Towards the end, his mind failed... but he always loved her as the one real thing in his life. And she watched him fade away, but she always saw the man she'd fallen in love with.

    General CommentOthers have said the song was about HC relationship with his wife Sandy, he was the out of touch male character and she was the grounded support he could always depend on ..."he could not make things possible but she could make them holy".

    That also holds true with the middle verse reference to their family life..."She gave him a daughter and she gave him a son..." as this song was written around the time his two youngest children were born (Jen & Josh - their first 3 children were actually Sandy's from her first marriage, which HC adopted and raised after their marriage).

    I the end the male finally sees that the one thing that isn't a dream or a adventure that in fact is real is her love for him, and he stays with her.
