I need some help with finding a song...

I need help finding a song about the following topics.

Loss of innocence

or a song that had to do with air/fire/water/earth/animals. Either a combo of some of those topics, all 5, or just one will do.

Thanks in advance for your help.

live have quite a few water songs, and probably a couple of those other things come into play in a few of them. i can't remember too well off the top of my head...haven't listened to them recently. the distance to here probably has most of them, though.

savage garden 'the animal song'
melissa etheridge 'somebody bring me some water'

loss of innocence = The Boys of Summer by Don Henley

air = Wind Beneath My Wings

fire = Disco Inferno or the Roof, Roof, Roof is on Fire.

water = Take me to the river, etc Talking Heads

earth = I feel the earth move etc.

animals = You and me baby why dont we watch the discovery channel etc. (Major Brain Alert!)

The boys of summer
Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summerís out of reach
Empty lake,
Empty streets
The sun goes down alone
Iím driviní by your house
Though I know youíre not home
But I can see you-
Your brown skin shininí in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your
Sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you
Will still be strong after the boys of
Summer have gone
I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream?
Now I donít understand whatís happened
To our love,
But babe, Iím gonna get you back
Iím gonna show you what Iím made of
I can see you-
Your brown skin shininí in the sun
I see you walkiní real slow and youíre smiliní at everyone

I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
Out on the road today I saw a deadhead sticker
On a cadillac
A little voice inside my head said, donít
Look back. you can never look back.
I thought I knew what love was,
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-
I can see you-
Your brown skin shininí in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that radio on baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
I can see you-
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and
Those wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

umm. Theres sand in this one. Implies beach. Implies water?

It was a party night, it was the end of school
He's head was feelin' light, the first time
She seemed much older then, she had turned seventeen
And she knew some older men, the first time

Come said the boy, let's go down to the sand
Let's do what we wanna do, let me be a man for you
Oh-woh-woh-oh, oh-woh-woh-oh
Oh-woh-woh-oh, oh-woh-woh

And she said
Well I've been waitin' for a long time
And you've changed a lot
Up till now it's been the wrong time
To know whether to come here or not

Oh, now come with me boy, just take my hand
I'll let you see what you wanna see
Come on, be a man for me

Hoh-oh-oh, we've both been waitin' for a long time
We've both changed a lot
Up till now it seemed the wrong time
To know whether to come here or not

Oh, but come said the boy, let's go down on the sand
Let's do what we wanna do, let me be a man for you
Just say come with me boy, just take my hand
I'll let you see what you wanna see
Come on be my man for me
Oh-woh-woh-oh, oh-woh-woh-oh
Oh-woh-woh-oh, oh-woh-woh

It was a party night (oh-woh-woh-oh)
It was the end of school (oh-woh-woh-oh)
He's head was feelin' light (oh-woh-woh-oh)
It was the first time (oh-woh-woh-oh)
She seemed much older then (oh-woh-woh-oh)
She had turned seventeen (oh-woh-woh-oh)
'Cause she knew some older men (oh-woh-woh-oh)
For the first time (oh-woh-woh-oh)

umm. Loss of innocence and water, again.

They call me The Wild Rose
But my name was Elisa Day
Why they call me it I do not know
For my name was Elisa Day
From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
She stared in my eyes and smiled
For her lips were the colour of the roses
That grew down the river, all bloody and wild
When he knocked on my door and entered the room
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
He would be my first man, and with a careful hand
He wiped at the tears that ran down my face
[Chorus]
On the second day I brought her a flower
She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen
I said, "Do you know where the wild roses grow
So sweet and scarlet and free?"
On the second day he came with a single red rose
Said: "Will you give me your loss and your sorrow"
I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed
He said, "If I show you the roses, will you follow?"
[Chorus]
On the third day he took me to the river
He showed me the roses and we kissed
And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
As he knelt (stood smiling) above me with a rock in his fist
On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
And I kissed her goodbye, said, "All beauty must die"
And lent down and planted a rose between her teeth
[Chorus]

Dur. I just reread your question and you want loss of innocence OR the elements.

Take 5

Something in the spring
Is making me grow in love with you babe
Something in the summer breeze
Is blowing me into your arms babe
Girl you know you got me open there's no time for anyone else
You're a priceless pearl in my possession and you are rare
If you ever start to wonder what you mean to me
Let me sum it up in just two syllables
Water water

You are the earth beneath my feet
You are the wind that's blowing me (into your arms)
You are the fire in my heart (and most of all)
you are the purest ever made
Water water

Girl since I drink from your fountain I, I thirst no more babe
And girl you are the virtuous woman that I desire
Girl you know you got me open there's no time for anyone else
You're a priceless pearl in my possession and you are rare
If you ever start to wonder what you mean to me
Let me sum it up in just two syllables
Water water

You are the earth beneath my feet
You are the wind that's blowing me (into your arms)
You are the fire in my heart (most of all baby)
You are the purest ever made
Water water

I would run to the middle of the desert at the speed of light
Just to have one drop of you babe
I would run to the middle of the desert at the speed of light
Just to have one drop of you babe

You are the earth beneath my feet (yes you are)
You are the wind that's blowing me (blowing me to you)
You are the fire in my heart (you're the fire in my heart)
You are the purest ever made
Girl you're like water to me
Girl you're like water to me
Girl you're like water to me
Girl you're like water to me

umm sorry Im bored.....

Dark in the city, night is a wire
Steam in the subway, earth is a fire
Do-do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do
Woman you want me, give me a sign
And catch my breathing even closer behind
Do-do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do

In touch with the ground
Iím on the hunt Iím after you
Smell like I sound, Iím lost in a crowd
And Iím hungry like the wolf
Straddle the line, in discord and rhyme
Iím on the hunt Iím after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And Iím hungry like the wolf

Stalked in the forest, too close to hide
Iíll be upon you by the moonlight side
Do-do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do
High blood drumming ony our skin itís so tight
You feel my heart, Iím just a moment behind
Do-do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do

In touch with the ground
Iím on the hunt Iím after you
Scent and a sound, Iím lost and Iím found
And Iím hungry like the wolf
Strut on a line, itís discord and rhyme
I howl and I whine Iím after you
Mouth is alive all running inside
And Iím hungry like the wolf

-

(hungry like the wolf
Hungry like the wolf
Hungry like the wolf)

Burning the ground I break from the crowd
Iím on the hunt Iím after you
I smell like I sound, Iím lost and Iím found
And Iím hungry like the wolf
Strut on a line, itís discord and rhyme
Iím on the hunt Iím after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And Iím hungry like the wolf

Burning the ground I break from the crowd
Iím on the hunt Iím after you
Scent and a sound, Iím lost and Iím found
And Iím hungry like the wolf

Strut on a line, itís discord and rhyme
I howl and I whine Iím after you
Mouth is alive all running inside
And Iím hungry like the wolf...

BOY: On a hot summer night would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?
GIRL: Will he offer me his mouth?

BOY: Yes

GIRL: Will he offer me his teeth?

BOY: Yes

GIRL: Will he offer me his jaws?

BOY: Yes

GIRL: Will he offer me his hunger?

BOY: Yes

GIRL: Again, will he offer me his hunger?

BOY: Yes!

GIRL: And will he starve without me?

BOY: Yes!

GIRL: And does he love me?

BOY: Yes

GIRL: Yes

BOY: On a hot summer night would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?

GIRL: Yes

BOY: I bet you to say that to all the boys.

It was a hot summer night and the beach was burning
There was fog crawling over the sand
When I listened to your heart I hear the whole world turning
I see the shooting stars
Falling through your trembling hands

You were licking your lips and your lipstick shining
I was dying just to ask for a taste
We were lying together in a silver lining
By the light of the moon
You know there's not another moment
Not another moment
Not another moment to waste

When you hold me so close that my knees grow weak
And my soul is flying high above the ground
I'm trying to speak but no matter what I do
I just can't seem to make any sound

And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh it must have been while you were kissing me
You took the words right out of my mouth
And I swear it's true
I was just about to say I love you

And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh it must have been while you were kissing me
You took the words right out of my mouth
And I swear it's true
I was just about to say I love you

Now my body is shaking like a wave on the water
And I guess that I'm beginning to grin
Oooh, we're finally alone and we can do what we want to
The night is young
And ain't no one gonna know where you
No one gonna know where you
No one's gonna know where you've been

You were licking your lips and your lipstick shining
I was dying just to ask for a taste
We were lying together in a silver lining
By the light of the moon
You know there's not another moment
Not another moment
Not another moment to waste

And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh it must have been while you were kissing me

i'll give you some rem options that pop into my mind...

loss of innocence: nightswimming "these things they go away, replaced by everyday..."

water: find the river is DEFINATELY your best bet...this song is completely water. undertow is another good one.

animals: animal

fire: the one i love

air: does the sky work for this one? cause fall on me is about the sky...

this is just on first thought...if i think of anything else i'll let you know...

ben harper - not fire, not ice
the smiths - reel around the fountain

Wow thanks Beli and everyone else for helping out. I think my friend needs songs about these elements, not just word usage. I'm not 100% on this though, I was just asked to find a song about one of those two topics. I sent her Boys of summer (Thanks beli) so I hope that does the trick.

I wonder if "The River" by The Tea Party would work there? I'm going to go find out....thanks again people. Keep them comming!
