Song of the Day #3,637: ‘Fireproof’ – One DIrection

Like yesterday’s song, today’s track comes from One Direction’s fourth album, Four. That album also features ‘Night Changes’ and ‘Steal My Girl,’ meaning it more than qualifies for my “at least three great songs” rule. I’ll have to listen to the whole thing one of these days.

I’ve been pleasantly surprised to discover that a lot of One Direction songs, at least from their later efforts, owe a debt to Fleetwood Mac. Indeed, Harry Styles covers the band in his solo concert.

‘Fireproof’ has a laid-back 70s soft rock vibe that would fit perfectly on a Fleetwood Mac album. And that’s high praise in my book.

[Verse 1: Harry & Niall]
I think I’m gonna lose my mind
Something deep inside me, I can’t give up
I think I’m gonna lose my mind
I roll and I roll ’til I’m out of luck
Yeah, I roll and I roll ’til I’m out of luck
I’m feeling something deep inside
Hotter than a jet stream burning up
I got a feeling deep inside
It’s taking, it’s taking, all I’ve got
Yeah, it’s taking, it’s taking, all I’ve got

[Chorus: All & Liam]
‘Cause nobody knows you, baby, the way I do
And nobody loves you, baby, the way I do
It’s been so long, it’s been so long, maybe we’re fireproof
‘Cause nobody saves me, baby, the way you do

[Verse 2: Louis]
I think I’m gonna win this time
Riding on the wind and I won’t give up
I think I’m gonna win this time
I roll and I roll ’til I change my luck
Yeah, I roll and I roll ’til I change my luck

[Chorus: Zayn & Liam & All & (Harry)]
‘Cause nobody knows you, baby, the way I do
And nobody loves you, baby, the way I do
It’s been so long, it’s been so long, you must be fireproof
‘Cause nobody saves me, baby, the way you do
‘Cause nobody knows you, baby, the way I do
And nobody loves you, baby, the way I do
(It’s been so long, it’s been so long, maybe we’re fireproof
‘Cause nobody saves me, baby, the way you’ll do)

    I agree this song has a nice vibe and the whole album is probably worth a listen. I’m surprised Sophie hasn’t played the album for you on a long drive (or series of drives). 😊
