Lyrics for Girl on Fire by 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
Feeling the catastrophe, but she knows she can fly away

Pre-Chorus
Oh, she got both feet on the ground
And she's burning it down
Oh, 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 (fire, fire)
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire (fire, 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 (Fire, fire)
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire (Fire, fire)
This girl is on fire

Outro
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...
She's just a girl, but she's on fire
