Girl On Fire - Alicia Keys

This song was was recently submitted by one of our readers (see the dedicated tab at top of the page).  I have to admit that I had trouble to relate to this song at first. But the more I listen to it, the more I can capture the feeling transmitted by Alicia Keys' voice.

The girl in the song is simply unstoppable, yet lonely. She had a difficult life but she still have that fire inside of us that makes her enjoy life to the fullest.

My favourite part of the song is:

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

I'd like to know your take on the song. How do you relate to the lyrics?

Video & Lyrics 



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

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

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

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

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

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

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

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

Oh, oh, oh...

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

Young And Beautiful - Lana Del Ray

This is the kind of song that brings you in the future and makes you wonder what your life would be like. The first time I've listened to this cover from Lana Del Ray,  I felt that she truly understood my concerns about my future.

Still young and healthy, I find myself wondering if someone would be able to love me when I get older and less attractive.  That's a terrible question to ask myself, but still a non-negligable one. These lyrics keeps resonating in my head:

How do you relate to that song? Please share your thoughts in the comment section.

Video & Lyrics


[Verse 1]
I've seen the world
Done it all
Had my cake now
Diamonds, brilliant
In Bel Air now
Hot summer nights, mid July
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, city lights
The way you'd play with me like a child

[Hook]
Will you still love me
When I'm no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?

[Verse 2]
I've seen the world, lit it up
As my stage now
Channeling angels in a new age now
Hot summer days, rock n roll
The way you play for me at your show
And all the ways I got to know
Your pretty face and electric soul

[Hook]
Will you still love me
When I'm no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?

[Verse 3]
Dear lord, when I get to heaven
Please let me bring my man
When he comes tell me that you'll let him in
Father tell me if you can
All that grace, all that body
All that face makes me wanna party
He's my sun, he makes me shine like diamonds

[Hook]
And will you still love me
When I'm no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?
Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?
Will you still love me when I'm not young and beautiful?

Heart Attack - Demi Lovato

In Heart Attack, Demi Levato sings about avoiding love - a situation that probably most of us lived once in our lives. Our favourite lyrics are:


Never put my love out on the line
Never said yes to the right guy
Never had trouble getting what I want
But when it comes to you, I’m never good enough
When I don’t care
I can play ‘em like a Ken doll
Won’t wash my hair
Then make 'em bounce like a basketball

This part in itself represents the essence of the song. When trying to avoid love, we often take bad decisions because we fear to get hurt. However, letting it go is the best decision we can take. At the end of the day, we have to trust our feelings.

Video & Lyrics




Puttin’ my defences up
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If I ever did that
I think I’d have a heart attack

Never put my love out on the line
Never said yes to the right guy
Never had trouble getting what I want
But when it comes to you, I’m never good enough
When I don’t care
I can play ‘em like a Ken doll
Won’t wash my hair
Then make 'em bounce like a basketball

But you make me wanna act like a girl
Paint my nails and wear high heels
Yea you, make me so nervous
That I just can’t hold your hand

You make me glow, but I cover up
Won’t let it show, so I’m
Puttin’ my defences up
Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If I ever did that
I think I’d have a heart attack (x3)

Never break a sweat for the other guys
When you come around, I get paralyzed
And everytime I try to be myself
It comes out wrong like a cry for help
It’s just not fair
Pain’s more trouble than love is worth
I gasp for air
It feels so good, but you know it hurts

But you make me wanna act like a girl
Paint my nails and wear perfume
For you, make me so nervous
That I just can’t hold your hand

You make me glow, but I cover up
Won’t let it show, so I’m
Puttin’ my defences up
Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If I ever did that
I think I’d have a heart attack (x3)

The feelings got lost in my lungs
They’re burning, I’d rather be numb
And there’s no one else to blame
So scared I take off and I run
I’m flying too close to the sun
And I burst into flames

You make me glow, but I cover up
Won’t let it show, so I’m
Puttin’ my defences up
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If I ever did that
I think I'd have a heart attack (x2)
I think I'd have a heart attack
I think I'd have a heart attack (x2)

I Need Your Love - Ellie Goulding feat. Calvin Harris

This song is all about love celebration. It says to me: It's ok to be infatuated by love, to have that desire inside of you.

 Video & Lyrics




I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

[Beat break]

I need your love

I take a deep breath everytime I pass your door
I know you're there but I can't see you anymore
And that's the reason you're in the dark
I've been a stranger ever since we fell apart
And I feel so helplessly
Watch my eyes are filled with fear
Tell me do you feel the same
Hold me in your arms again

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

[Beat break]

I need your love

Now I'm dreaming, will ever find you now?
I walk in circles but I'll never figure out
What I mean to you, do I belong
I try to fight this but I know I'm not that strong
And I feel so helplessly
Watch my eyes are filled with fear
Tell me do you feel the same
Hold me in your arms again

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

[Beat break]

I need your love

All the years
All the times
You were never been to blame
And now my eyes are perfect
And now my heart is closing
And all the tears
All the lies
All the waste
I've been trying to make it change
And now my eyes are perfect

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free

[Beat break]

Just Give Me A Reason - P!nk ft Nate Ruess

This song is all about second chances. The character in the song is asking for reasons to give his loved one a second chance. I believe most people can relate to this songs because we're all be deciding one day to give a second chance to someone or not. Infidelity, deception and drugs can all leads to tricky situations...but who doesn't deserve a second chance?

Video & Lyrics


Right from the start
You were a thief
You stole my heart
And I your willing victim
I let you see the parts of me
That weren't all that pretty
And with every touch you fixed them

Now you've been talking in your sleep oh oh
Things you never say to me oh oh
Tell me that you've had enough
Of our love, our love

(Chorus)
Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
That we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

I'm sorry I don't understand
Where all of this is coming from
I thought that we were fine
(Oh we had everything)
Your head is running wild again
My dear we still have everythin'
And it's all in your mind
(Yeah but this is happenin')

You've been havin' real bad dreams oh oh
You used to lie so close to me oh oh
There's nothing more than empty sheets
Between our love, our love
Oh our love, our love

(Chorus)
Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

I never stopped
You're still written in the scars on my heart
You're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Oh tear ducts and rust
I'll fix it for us
We're collecting dust
But our love's enough

You're holding it in
You're pouring a drink
No nothing is as bad as it seems
We'll come clean

(Chorus)
Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
That we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
That we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
Oh we can learn to love again
Oh we can learn to love again oh oh
That we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Feel This Moment - Pitbull ft. Christina Aguilera

This song has a simple yet powerful meaning. Feel this moment is a reminder to live our lives to the fullest. The chorus, sang by Christina Aguilera, goes like this:

One day when the light is glowing
I’ll be in my castle golden
But until the gates are open
I just wanna feel this moment (ohhh)

For me, the castle represents the ultimate goal; the one thing you want to achieve in your life. But until you get there, make sure you enjoy every second of your life.

Carpe Diem!

Video & Lyrics



Ask for money, and get advice
Ask for advice, get money twice
I'm from the Dirty, but that chico nice
Ya'll call it a moment, I call it life

One day when the light is glowing
I’ll be in my castle golden
But until the gates are open
I just wanna feel this moment (ohhh)

I just wanna feel this moment (ohhh)

I just wanna feel this moment

Mr Worldwide
Christina Aguilera
Oye mamita, come on, dale, que la cosa esta rica

(I wanna feel this moment)

[Beat break]

Feel this moment...

Reporting live, from the tallest building in Tokyo
Long ways from the hard ways
Bill sos, and oh yeas
They count it always,
305 all day
Now baby we can party,
Oh baby we can party
She read books, especially about red rooms and tie ups
I got hooked,
Cause she seen me in a suit with the red tie, tied up
Meet and greet, nice to meet ya, but time is money
Only difference is I own it,
Now let's stop time and enjoy this moment

One day when the light is glowing
I’ll be in my castle golden
But until the gates are open
I just wanna feel this moment (ohhh)
I just wanna feel this moment (ohhh)
I just wanna feel this moment

[Beat break]

Feel this moment...

I see the future
But live for the moment, make sense don't it
Now make dollars,
I mean billions, im a genius,
I mean brilliant
This street is what schooled em
And made em slicker, to slick with the ruler
I've lost a lot, and learned a lot
But I'm still undefeated like Shula
I'm far from cheap,
I break down companies with all my peeps
Baby we can travel the world
And not given view, and all you can see
Time is money
Only difference is I own it,
Like a stop watch, let's stop time and enjoy this moment

One day when the light is glowing
I’ll be in my castle golden
But until the gates are open
I just wanna feel this moment (ohhh)
I just wanna feel this moment (ohhh)
I just wanna feel this moment

[Beat break]
Come on, feel this moment....(ohhh)
I just wanna feel this moment(ohhh)
I just wanna feel this moment

Shine bright like a diamond

Find light in the beautiful sea, I choose to be happy
