Came on a hurricane
From a southern town
Some place that had no name
She's fats and furious
And pretty boys on TV sets
Have made her curious
(chorus)
This girl's on fire
She can't get any higher
Right from the start
She'll break your heart
This girl's on fire
Love is not what she brings
She breathes a passion into me
It colours all my dreams
She says she'll never sleep
Until this city howls and screams
Burns down 'round her feet
(REPEAT CHORUS)
Yeah this girl's on fire
She can't get any higher
She's a passionate child
You know she'll love you wild
This girl's on fire
I wanted to take her home
A thousand summers all my own
But I just let her go
And witches still get burned
And boys get scared at every turn
When will they ever learn that
(REPEAT CHORUS)
This girl's on fire
She can't get any higher
She'll leave you blind
She'll leave you behind
This girl's on fire
