I’m On Fire: An Investment by The Boss

I think that the feeling that some people feel when listening to this song comes from the fact that the song has some reminiscence of the nostalgia that hurts the most, the one of what could have been, but never was. And in this case it was “complicated” for something to happen, it was better to leave the key and go and think what could have happened. I think the song brings us something of the perfume of our own youth and what we could have done and everything that happened, that’s why a knot forms in our stomach, because we realise the finitude of our own life

Hey little girl, is your daddy home?

Did he go away and leave you all alone?


I got a bad desire

Oh oh oh,

I’m on fire

Tell me now, baby, is he good to you?

And can he do to you the things that I do?

Oh no

I can take you higher

Oh oh oh,

I’m on fire

Sometimes it’s like someone took a knife,

baby Edgy and dull and cut a six inch valley Through the middle of my skull

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet

And a freight train running through the middle of my head

Only you can cool my desire

Oh oh oh, I’m on fire Oh oh oh, I’m on fire Oh oh oh, I’m on fire Woo ooh ooh Woo ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh Woo ooh ooh Woo ooh ooh
