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

Everyone keeps praising Robert for this, but what nobody seems to know is that even Robert himself gives the credit to Justin Adams: as Robert says himself, Justin is steering this ship.  
This song was okay the 1st few times, but it got old quick. I expect more from Plant.

He sounds more like Kaa every day ...

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.
:)

Off to see him next Thursday, looking forward to it.
Please make it stop.{#Pray} 11 plays in 30 days?!

Sorry Robert, this ain't no Stairway by a long shot. {#Wall}
Not a fan of this at first, but it's growing on me.  That voice has always been haunting...Up to a 7.
oh WOW... new Robert Plant.  This makes me so happy Bill!  123K

great voice, fabulous artist (the title Carry Fire brought to mind Svankmajer's "The Torchbearer"  : )

Lost me at Radiohead. You gotta have physical copy of whiny depressing drone? 

 
Time to pull out the Anti-Nowhere League verse -

"You criticise us, you say we're shit
But we're up here and we're doing it
So don't you criticise the things we do
No fucker pays to go and see you"

That just about covers it.
Heavy rotation lately. Just a mood, Bill?

I bought the CD.  In this age of internet music piracy, I have amassed a very large collection of music, but there are still some artists where I will always buy the physical CD; Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson, David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Radiohead, and Robert Plant.  

He still regularly produces music that is relevant, innovative and beautiful.  VERY FEW people of his generation can claim that.

Anytime any day, fabulous!
I was at work listening and I thought "What is this song? I really like it!". Robert Plant does that to me.
So nice to hear new work from him....
once again a song catches my ear.  I need to stop what i am doing and just listen.  Very cool
