St. Elmo’s Fire (Man In Motion) | John Parr
This song was #1 on the Billboard charts 25 years ago today—-and 25 years ago today, I was born. I’m proud to share my birthday with Roald Dahl (!!!!), Fiona Apple, Mel Torme, Ben Savage. But most of all (I lie… it’s a tie with Roald), I love that this was the day Tupac died/”died” (sorry Tupac and/or come out of hiding).
I do have to go to work today, but you better believe I’m blasting this song and singing along on repeat on the 10min drive there.
Burning 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
I can see a new horizon underneath the blazin’ sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s flying 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
Just once in his life a man has his time
and my time is now, I’m coming alive
