St Elmos Fire Lyrics

Artist: John Parr
Album: St Elmos Fire

Growin' up
You don't see the writin' on the wall
Passin' by
Movin' straight ahead you knew it all
But maybe sometime if you feel the pain
You'll find you're all alone
Everything has changed

Play the game
You know you can't quit until it's won
Soldier on
Only you can do what must be done
You know in some way
You're a lot like me
You're just a prisoner
And you're tryin' to break free

CHORUS:

I can see a new horizon
Underneath the blazin' sky
I'll be where the eagle's
Flyin' higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future's lyin'
St. Elmo's Fire

Oooh...

Burnin' up
Don't know just how far that I can go
(Just how far I go)
Soon be home
Only just a few miles down the road
I can make it
I know I can
You broke the boy in me
But you won't break the man

(CHORUS)

I can climb the highest mountain
Cross the wildest sea
I can feel St. Elmo's Fire burnin' in me
Burnin' in me

Just once in his life
A man has his time
And my time is now
And I'm comin' alive

I can hear the music playin'
I can see the banners fly
Feel like you're back again
And hope ridin' high
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future's lyin'
St. Elmo's Fire

(CHORUS)

I can climb the highest mountain
Cross the wildest sea
I can feel St. Elmo's Fire burnin' in me

Burnin'
Burnin' in me
I can feel it burnin'
Oooh, burnin' inside of me

Because the music that's made these days is garbage. All about ho's and money. No real substance. That's why!

by Joe on 4/5/2009 11:09pm
Some trivia about this song from IMDB: Singer John Parr, who co-wrote and sung the title song "St. Elmo's Fire" for the soundtrack, explained during a speech at the Childrens choice awards in Sheffield that he was "not particularly thrilled" to be working on the film and that, motivation for the song actually came from a young man who had recently become paralyzed. He said that "the wheels" of the Man in Motion referenced in the lyrics was popularly thought to mean the wheels of Demi Moore's jeep, but actually refers instead to those of a wheelchair.
by Great Prophet Zarquon on 4/6/2009 6:13am
One of the great pick-me-up songs of all time. 100% classic.

by MIryam on 5/26/2009 1:25pm

by Lauraaaaaaaaa. on 9/3/2009 12:58am
Awesome. End of.
by Celystior on 9/6/2009 8:35pm
ROCK ON
by Pino on 10/5/2009 1:15am
Powerful song. Both testosteron and emotion.

However John Parr sings about a pair of wheels. The association I get with that is my motorcycle. Referring to it as a wheelchair or a Jeep seems not logical, Joe (4/5/2009).

Both means of transport obviously have two pairs of wheels... or am I wrong?

Anyway song rocks, even here in Uruzgan!

Power to you all!
by miguel gaspar ponce on 10/21/2009 2:28pm
to be honest I really don't care what the song is all about, but I like it a lot anyways
by boru on 10/29/2009 1:53pm

by migite man on 12/30/2009 10:40pm
This 80's song is a very powerful song!! Tells how you should go through life !!!!!!!!!!! this song should be life!!!Love it!!!!!
by JOE on 1/4/2010 10:08am
This song was written by David Foster and John Parr who are both natives of British Columbia. The inspiration for the song comes from a young man from BC whose name is Rick Hansen. He was paralyzed in an automobile accident and went on to start a Man In Motion tour where he wheel chaired around the globe. Google it!
by james on 2/1/2010 1:26am
this is a inspirational, powerful and loving song, we need all the inspiration we can get to do what must be done.
by Steve on 3/13/2010 12:51am
This song didn't make any sense in 1985 and it doesn't make any sense in 2010. What has St. Elmo's fire got to do with anything in these lyrics. "I can feel St. Elmo's fire burning in me." What? This is exactly what popular 80s music was all about - horrible synthesizers and inane, empty lyrics, and is was gobbled up - these were bad, bad times for music on the radio. I'm so glad I had cassettes instead of having to listen to this in my car. It was bad enough at parties and college dining hall juke boxes. I don't ever want to hear this or "Take My Breath Away" again.
by Guy on 4/2/2010 3:46pm
Ahh I used to listen to this song all the time. Steve's right, alot of the music I loved kinda had jumbled lyrics, though I still found a strong purpose for them :) Songs like this were always so fun, where do the times go?
by Joe on 5/31/2010 6:18pm
Great song! even though the video shows the movie clips in it, it was not written for the movie.
by Chris Nielsen on 6/11/2010 11:31pm
Awesome song, one of the best of the 80's. Just so Dionysian!
by michael Castranio on 6/17/2010 3:23pm
i love this song soooo much and the movie is just amazing i can watch it over and over again
by alexis marco on 7/5/2010 8:03pm

by seb rodger on 9/3/2010 7:34am
Can I come round ? I love sticking willie up my arse !
by Southern Redneck on 9/17/2010 6:28am
Ralphy, Charlie, and Seb Rodger are 3 fags that need to be lined up on a wall and SHOT right between their eyes and I wouldn't mind doing it!!!!
by Steve on 9/24/2010 8:57am
We seem to being the thread here don't we ?
Lets get back to the lyrics eh ?
by Ralphy on 9/24/2010 11:42am
Southern Redneck,anytime you wanna shot one right between my eyes let me know my mouth will be wide open and waiting.
All of Alabama wants a piece of my ebony ass !
by Lanno on 1/24/2011 2:01pm
this may be the greatest thing to happen to music, nay, the world.
by HOLLY on 2/7/2011 1:48pm
Movie was even less than so so BUT

the song.....ABSOLUTELY GREAT!!!

I never get tired of hearing it and that's easy because it is seldom on the radio.
by Paula on 2/17/2011 8:22am
Great song.....I love singing this song! Music loud & clear!!

by monistA on 1/6/2012 3:27pm
This is a perfect song for someone becoming an Atheist who had been tormented by various fundamentalist Christian churches.
by Rob on 1/11/2012 7:07pm
Feel like I'm back again? No, the original words were "feel like a vet again, I hope I ain't high.
by Jarrad on 1/14/2012 10:53am
This is my theme song at the moment. It describes my life also. The boy in me has been broken by many people at my school.

But now, they will not break the man in me. The chorus reminds me also of myself running to the girl I love.

I always think about her when this is on, I'm glad I'll be with her for the rest of my life.
by Suzi on 1/20/2012 4:56pm
I LOVE this song, it is such a BIG sound with fantastic lyrics
by Me on 1/29/2012 10:37am

MOMA ID ALWAYS TOLD ME THAT ONE DAY SHE'D HAVE THE PRIVLEDGE OF HEARING ME SAY, "YOU KNOW MOM EVERYTHING YOU TOLD ME WHEN WAS I YOUNGER WAS DEAD ON. HERE GOES MOM YOU WERE RIGHT : )
by Aussie it on 3/27/2012 3:56pm
You can use this song to be the anthem for yourself to make changes in your life if things sent going that well , thumbs up to it
by VixenLinzy on 4/3/2012 5:21pm
This was the theme song for Rick Hansen, who is in a wheelchair, and did a cross-Canada "Man in Motion" tour to raise funds for spinal cord research. Those are the wheels John Parr is referring to!
by BlueNoser on 4/16/2012 9:05pm
Great running tune!
by Will Pimentel on 5/6/2012 9:16pm
This is one of those songs that can instantly place you in the place where you first heard it. Its a total definition of the 80's. It's also one of those inspirational songs that can psych you up into accomplishing anything. Definitely one of the best songs of all time.
by bells on 7/17/2012 2:51am
This song is cheesy, but the lyrics are spot-on ...we all have situations in life that bring us down and we have to just say, to hell with it, i'm going to get over this and get on...:o)
by Paulo on 7/30/2012 8:35am
Just heard St elmo's fire on the radio, superb
by SteveUK on 10/3/2012 7:11pm

John Parr a Canadian??? You are a moron!!! John Parr is English song writer and NOT some dumb and talentless Canadian. You Google it!

John Parr a Canadian??? Bwahahahaha!!!! Are you stupid or something? First of, John Parr is an English song writer and not some talentless Canadian. And secondly the song is full of metaphors... read the lyrics! So you Google it!!!

Geez... some people are dumb! And then people in Canada wonder why we in UK don't like them. Canadians are so stupid! Long Live the Queen!

This is positively the best song EVER! Hadn't played it in many years but just bought the CD to play it over and over again. Love it to drive to. The whole CD is phenomenal. Wish I could hear it performed live. I think I'd die! Love the horns.
by Sven J. on 5/7/2014 6:52am
