The Girl On Fire Songfacts says. This is the title track and first single from Alicia Keys' fifth studio album. Said the singer: "Before making this record, in some ways I felt like a lion locked in a cage. I felt like a girl misunderstood that no one really knew, I felt like it was time to stop making excuses for any part of my life that I wanted to change. Once I made that choice I became a Girl on Fire, the lion broke free!!" The song was made available on iTunes and radio on September 4, 2012. Top 5 hit 'Girl On Fire' was inspired by Keys' giving birth to her son Egypt and marriage to husband Swizz Beatz. Earlier this year Alicia performed the song with modified lyrics during President Obama's inaugural Ball, which celebrated his second term. She also performed it at the 2013 Grammy Awards. Catch Alicia on her global 'Set The World On Fire' tour kicking off on 7th March.

Girl on Fire - Alicia Keys

[Verse 1]
She's just a girl and she's on fire
Hotter than a fantasy, lonely like a highway
She's living in a world and it's on fire
Fill with catastrophe, but she know she can fly away

[Pre-Chorus]
Ooooohhhh...
She got both feet on the ground
And she's burning it down

Oooohhhhh...
She got her head in the clouds
And she's not backing down

[Chorus]
This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

[Verse 2]
Looks like a girl but she's a flame
So bright she can burn your eyes
Better look the other way
You can try but you'll never forget her name
She's on top of the world
Hottest of the hottest girls say

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, we got our feet on the ground
And we're burning it down
Oh, got our head in the clouds
And we're not coming down

[Chorus]
This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

[Bridge]
Everybody stands as she goes by
Cause they can see the flame that's in her eyes
Watch her when she's lighting up the night
Nobody knows that she's a lonely girl
And it's a lonely world
But she gon' let it burn baby burn baby

[Chorus]
This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

[Outro]
Oh, oh, oh...

She's just a girl, and she's on fire
