I sit and wait for you
Like so many others do
Just like they do for me
Well so I do for you

I'd carry fire for you
Here in my naked hands
I'd bare my heart to you
If you will understand

I was a stranger there
Inside your promised land
That turned me inside out
And turned me upside down

I'd carry fire for you
Here in my naked hands
I'd bare my heart to you
If you will understand

Just like
Just like
Just like I scarred you
Just like
Just like
Just like I scarred you

I'm reaching out for you
Across the broken gate
I feel the gathering years
Beyond these lonely wastes

I'd carry fire for you
Here in my naked hands
I'd bare my heart to you
If you will understand

Just like
Just like
Just like I scarred you
Just like
Just like
Just like I scarred you

I don't mind this song but why do you play it so much?  What makes RP so great is the variety but this song in particular seems to be played a LOT.  
Since this sounds so much like Sufi music, I did a search to see if Plant had become one. Interesting article...

Ouch.........Grating..... {#Stop}
I found this song to be very repetitious... almost to the point of sounding like a record skipping. Not for me at all.
I like this song well enough but with the wide variety of music you play, why does this get played every.single.day?  Maybe at least mix it up with something else from the same album?
sounds like trying to find the Kashmir magic again, but not doing it for me.

Great in concert recently, nice multi-modal vibe. But I still find this meme pretty true!

You are absolutely right. I think for that reason that Bill is mentioning the name of Justin Adams now regularly! 
This is a great song...but why play it so many times?
The whole album is fantastic and deserved to be heard as much as this song
Would you prefer to put that on repeat over exposure to something you never knew? Even just for a test ride?

This is an absolutely terrible song. Enough already with the faux middle-eastern minor key dirges, Robert. 

 

The song is great, his voice is lovely on that tune, if you do not like, why not PSD?
But his music has evolved as has his voice... Accept musicians grow, as they get older, and are influenced by all genres of music, and the band, does not play faux middle eastern dirges.... They know their instruments...

Btw, what are middle eastern dirges, as the Middle East play a whole range of music ...

This song was okay the 1st few times, but it got old quick. I expect more from Plant.

Song is *okay* but two plays, four or so hours apart?  (9:57am and 1:33pm)  That's a bit much.
Love the Middle Eastern vibe. The entire album is hypnotic like this. It grown on me with repeated listening.
I prefer the rock and roll Robert Plant.
Just plain love it. When you're not playing it, Bill. I am.
PS: If you're looking for Stairway to Heaven, that was then.
