Nadia Ali’s “Crash and Burn”


September 12, 2008 9:14 PM

Continuing on with this week’s theme of love and all that, this is a song by one of my favourite dance vocalists, Nadia Ali (formerly of Iio, of “Rapture” fame) called “Crash and Burn” – a song about the risk of falling in love. It’s cheesy but overlaid on a great beat and tune.

Here are the words to it, which reads like a script to every person’s first experiences with love …

You knew me better than anyone ever
And I remember your very first letter
We were so young and all that we wanted was more

We feed each other like rebels on Harley’s
And I knew how to enter your body
But at the speed that we drove we were bound to wash out

We flew…

And I could read every word you were thinking
You gave me something I never was given
It was heaven and hell all at once as we laughed, and cried

There always needs to be one that is willin’
To throw a rope down to someone who’s slippin’
But sometimes you gotta know when to let it go…

[x2]
We flew, rockets to the sun
Knowin’ we’d crash and burn
That’s the risk we run when you fall, in love

Rockets to the sun
Knowin’ we’d crash and burn
That’s the risk we run when you fall, in love

We flew, rockets to the sun
Knowin’ we’d crash and burn
That’s the risk we run when you fall, in love

In love, in love, in love, in love…

We flew rockets to the sun
Knowin’ we would crash and burn
We flew rockets to the sun
Knowin’ we would crash and burn

    As we grow, we don’t risk crash and burn anymore. We became afraid and insulate ourselves like greenhouse plants.

    “I’ll never do anything I’m not 100% confident in.”

    We heard that way too often nowadays, and are even guilty of that verbal charge at times.

    Where’s all the rockets and fires?

    elise: when we are younger, we don’t mind being burnt. But once we get burnt a few times, it’s instincts to avoid the things that hurt us. So it’s not necessarily a bad thing, even though we are taking less risks. But yeah, life becomes less dramatic as a result.

    Websighter: hey, thanks for reading and the compliment! 🙂
