Sound Bite Sunday

Round two of our Robbie Williams month! This song is a bit of an anomaly to me. I think it was on a major release in England (and perhaps elsewhere) but it wasn't on "The Ego Has Landed" which was his big break into the US market. (Although it wasn't really that big, was it? I've read that he lives in Los Angeles because America is the only country in the world where he can go unnoticed!) Regardless, I caught this song on some later compilation CD and have always loved it. I don't really have a good reason why, other than I like the tune. And with the exception of "Rudebox" my Robbie can do no wrong. So check it out and enjoy!
 
Phoenix from the Flames by Robbie Williams
 
Silence shields the pain
So you say nothing
Feel they've rigged the game
And you're done with lovin'
Only you can see the darkness in the northern lights

Phoenix from the Flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way
Oh yeah
Just like a Phoenix from the Flame

Wish they'd take you back
Cos you miss heaven
Too many bags to pack
So leave them where they are
Tonight you're flying on a golden dream

Phoenix from the Flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way

Everybody's talking
Nobody's listening
Too busy thinking about what you've
Been missing
Everybody said you're gonna take it
Too far baby now
Well come on

When you're done with lovin'
It comes down to nothing
Can you feel it
Can you feel it
Can you feel it

Phoenix from the Flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way
Oh yeah
Just like a Phoenix from the Flame

Phoenix from the Flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way
Oh yeah
Just like a Phoenix from the Flame

Why don't you come and deny it
You know you can't deny it
I always wanna feel this way
Just like a Phoenix from the Flames
