Song Lyric Sunday – Hearts on Fire by Marnie

The cool thing about the theme this week is that it forced me to go out and find some music that was new to me.  I was honestly surprised I found some singers with the first name Helen, and I was even more surprised when I actually liked quite a bit of Marnie’s music.

According to Wikipedia, Helen Marnie is Scottish and started a solo career a few years ago.  Her music is electronic/new wave, so not necessarily something I gravitate towards, but it was fun to listen to some of her songs and get to know her a little bit.  I think this song was my favorite one.  I really like the lyrics and it was sort of mellow as well.  I believe she writes all her own lyrics based on something I read on her Wikipedia page, but I don’t know for sure.

Anyway, I do hope you enjoy!

I heard you lost your way
Marching to the beat of a serpent
A fire burning your horizon
Beyond the barricade
Fallen but this black heart is fighting
The hand it was dealt by fate
I hear you now and don’t let me down
Leave the darkness behind
Cast aside and don’t look behind, only silence
Promises will be all we need through the dark days
Lying softly to ourselves
Always never felt so good
We’re the power
Our hearts on fire, hearts on fire
Promises we always made when our hearts on fire
Always never felt so good
We’re the power
Our hearts on fire, hearts on fire
Promises we always made when our hearts on fire
They looked the other way
And now you don’t even recognize them
Bound by a code of silence
So keep your enemies at bay
Marching to the beat of a serpent
Too close for comfort’s sake
Always never felt so good
We’re the power
Our hearts on fire, hearts on fire
Promises we always made when our hearts on fire
Always never felt so good
We’re the power
Our hearts on fire, hearts on fire
Promises we always made when our hearts on fire

  1. This is actually really great. Musically and lyrically it reminds me a lot of a certain band I’m very fond of. 😛

    Anyway, I enjoyed this. Been having an awful day. Needed something to take my mind off of it.

    Sunday lyric singer with my name.

    My blog is called after Oasis Wonderwall.

    My name is Sara. I asked Alexa to play a song by Sara. This is what she came up with… and then

  5. Oh, this song is so good! I love the sound of her voice and the video was pretty cool, too. Reminds me so much of Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries. SLS is so fun, Helen, because we get to hear lots of favorite songs along with some brand new to us songs. Thanks! 🙂
