Light My Fire

Light My Fire

The Doors, one of America's best and more prolific rock and roll bands, had many great hits, but Light My Fire is one of the best of them.

Jim Morrison, the lizard king himself, was a true poet/performance genius, who's flame was extinguished far too soon. However, the music of the Doors lives on and like so many great inventions and creations, we can enjoy it for the rest of our lives. Inspired by it, motivated by it and moved by it. It is an expansion of consciousness. It opens the doors to perception...(*pun intended).

Jim Morrison and I were born on the same day, December 8th. He died exactly 48 1/2 years ago today on July 3, 1971. Just less than 18 months before I would be born in 1972.

The Robert Redd Legend is all about love. Not just amorous love, but unconditional love, the love of mankind, of pleasure, of invention, of creativity and yes, of course, of romance.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Jim Morrison and the Doors:

Light My fire

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire

Here's to you with future adventures in mind...

Warmly,

Robert
