[Alicia Keys]
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

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

[Alicia Keys]
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

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

[Alicia Keys]
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

Oh, oh, oh...

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

    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.
    Fill with catastrophe, but she know 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.

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

    [Alicia Keys]
    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.

    Though women has problems in life other people wont notice it because she shows other people that she is still strong enough to continue her life.. Life must go on.. Sa likod ng pagiging matapang ay may kaakibat na karanasang hindi maganda...
