Three Line Tales: Songs on Fire #3Linetales #lyrics #music

Thanks to Sonya of Only 100 Words for hosting 3 Line Tales:


Dan Carlson


1.”She’s just a girl, and she’s on fire; hotter than a fantasy, longer 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 . . .” 

Alicia Keys “Girl On Fire”


2. “After I have traveled so far; we’d set the fire to the third bar; we’d share each other like an island; until exhausted, close our eyelids . . .”

Snow Patrol – “Set The Fire to The Third Bar”


3. “I’m a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm; and the scars that mark my body, they’re silver and gold; my blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones; it keeps my veins hot, the fire’s found a home in me; I move through town, I’m quiet like a fight; and my necklace is of rope, I tie it and untie. . .” 

Lorde -“Yellow Flicker Beat”


Decided to try some lyrics this week. This prompt made me think of many songs and how we use fire to describe so many feelings, situations, and experiences in life. There is fire in everything.

    Nice lyrics, Mandi. Music is so important, can distil so much emotion into such a short span. Great post

    We set the world aflame with our words be there in songs, hymns, spoken or written form.
