Raging Fire - Phillip Phillips


www.last.fmby Simon Cleary 

The Experience: Phillip Phillips allies his rootsy voice with his strong guitar-driven single. Raging Fire's meaning lights up the very lyrics themselves - won't you turn my soul into a raging fire? Love setting souls and music on fire. Love makes both live until we die. The Phillip Phillips we remember, bard of lifelong love, he's back.


Video: Phillip sings with several, fast-changing backgrounds: graffiti-filled streets and rooftops of Chicago, and lying on his back while people paint around him... then paint him. The meaning? You can see his raging fire passion in the close-ups, and he leaves that message with you at the end of the video: he's become one with the burning heart painted over him. Then he gets up and leaves you looking at a heart with a space for someone else to fill. He's asking you, 'Can I fill the emptiness in your heart?'

The meaning of Phillip Phillips Raging Fire is the power of love. We've all heard songs with lines like "your love lights up my life." Those lines sound clichè if the singer doesn't believe in their meaning. Raging Fire does mean it, and you can hear it, louder than the guitar, bigger than the lyrics, in how much Phillip wants his soul to be turned into a raging fire. The single means that love has to be like fire - nothing it touches stays the same. Raging fire reminds us how much we all need that heat. 

Ask Yourself: Am I on fire with love? Do I let it light up my life?  


LYRICS:
We are dead to rights, born and raised
We are thick and thin to our last days
So hold me close and I'll surrender to your heart
You know how to give and how to take
You see every hope I locked away
So pull me close and surrender to my heart
Before the flame goes out tonight
Yeah we'll live until we die

So come out, come out, come out
Won't you turn my soul
Into a raging fire
Come out, come out, come out
'Til we lose control
Into a raging fire
Into a raging fire
Come out, come out, come out
Won't you turn my soul
Into a raging fire

You know time will give and time will take
All the memories made will wash away
Even though we changed I'm still here with you
If you listen close you'll hear the sound
Of all the ghosts that bring us down
Hold on to what makes you feel
Don't let go, it's what makes you real
If the flame goes out tonight
Yeah we live until we die

So come out, come out, come out
Won't you turn my soul
Into a raging fire
Come out, come out, come out
Till we lose control
Into a raging fire
Into a raging fire
Come out, come out, come out
Won't you turn my soul
Into a raging fire

Let the world leave us behind
Let your heart be next to mine
Fefore the flame goes out tonight
We can live until we die

Come out, come out, come out
Won't you turn my soul
Into a raging fire

Come out, come out, come out
Won't you turn my soul
Into a raging fire
Come out, come out, come out
Till we lose control
Into a raging fire
Into a raging fire
Come out, come out, come out
Won't you turn my soul
Into a raging fire
