In love with the rhythms...

I have been utterly immersed in the music of Róisín Murphy for the past couple of months and wanted to share these poetic lyrics from her latest album (Track 3 I think?). For those of you who don’t know, she is the singer from Moloko and far more seductively obscure on her own. Hope you enjoy as much as I have…..

Róisín Murphy : Night of the Dancing Flame Lyrics

Curiosity
The young and the free
There for all to see
Entranced, burned by the flame
Have your senses taken leave into the fire of true belief
It’s the orgy of the free

It was at first as if they were shadows
Shimmering visions by the light of the dancing flame
Bodies in motion, the sound of the ocean
Came into vision on the night of the dancing flame

What of your own free will
Bodies are writhing still
There in the moonlight with my head up held high
Wish I could keep on walking by, but I
Find myself drawn to you
I let you do what you want to do
You had your wicked way
There on the site of the dancing flame

It was at first as if they were shadows
Shimmering visions by the light of the dancing flame
Bodies in motion, the sound of the ocean
Came into vision on the night of the dancing flame

To dance around the fire
On the night of the dancing flame
To make the flame grow higher
In the light of the dancing flame
To dance around the fire
On the site of the dancing flame
To make the flame grow higher
In the night of the dancing flame

On that starry night, lost my sense of time
I don’t know how I got my fingers burned
Maybe I got too close
To the light of the, to the light of the
To the light of the dancing flame
To the light of the, to the light of the
To the light of the dancing flame
