Feel That Fire Lyrics
Dierks Bentley's song "Feel that Fire" is a rocking country tune that toped out at #1 on the country charts, but have you thought about "Feel that Fire's" lyrics? This song describes a woman that the singer has deep feeling for, and through the lyrics we learn about who she is and what she desires. It's a great tune with an interesting message.
On the one hand, many of the lyrics describe her as free-spirited and independent. Lines like "she wants to ride the bull at the rodeo," "she wants to stand where nobody stood," and "she wants to make love on a train" all tell us that she knows her own mind. She is adventerous, a little wild, and likes to have fun.
On the other hand, there are also lyrics that indicate she also wants some of the more "traditional" parts of life. Lines like "she wants the toy in the crackerjack," "she wants to make every stray a pet," and "someday she wants a couple kids of her own" suggest that though she can be wild, she also appreciates the simple things in life. She wants to have a house and kids and ride the bull at the rodeo.
What we're left with is a picture of a complicated woman who can't be easily pinned down.
Given the vast range of all of these things that she wants, needs, and desires, it'd be hard to imagine that there is one only thing that could make her happy. Yet that is what the chorus of "Feel that Fire" insists is true. Deep down, what she wants to feel is that her man is going to be there for her. "Her real desire," the chorus goes, "Is to know I'd walk alone out on the wire / To make her feel that fire." She wants to know that the man she loves is going to give his passion for life back to her.
Now that's a love song. Bring on the rodeo bulls!
