Fire
Sara Bareilles Lyrics


Door clicks while his wheels start spinning on the pavement
And I go fill the space up where he has been staying
Won't lose much sleep, he never went that deep
Love you, oh, you sweet thing, no, I never said that
Let me hold your ego while you get your bag packed
Don't take this the wrong way
But when the spade shows up, I call it by its first name

We were, we were never gonna catch fire
We'd've burned up in the flames
Long before they ever rose up higher
Someday I, I won't have to feel the cold
But I do now, so I'll know
What it feels like when I feel fire, fire

Mmm, fire
Fire

Talk, touch, kiss, bend, this one's just like all the others
And I know all too well that I won't beat the waters
I held my breath to swim
The shallow shores aren't safe enough to dive in

We were, we were never gonna catch fire
We'd've burned up in the flames
Long before they ever rose up higher
Someday I, I won't have to feel the cold
But I do now, so I'll know
What it feels like when I feel fire, fire

That comes-and-stays fire
On-blood-and-veins fire
I've only ever wanted, fire
In my chest, in my mouth, on my tongue, in my mind
In my soul, so my lungs can breathe in fire

We'd've burned up in the flames
Long before they ever rose up higher
Someday I, I won't have to feel the cold
But I do now, so I'll know
What it feels like when I feel fire, fire

Sara bareilles fire lyrics
[Verse 1]
Door clicks while his wheels start spinning on the pavement
And I go fill the space up where he has been staying
Won't lose much sleep, he never went that deep
"Love you," oh, you sweet thing, no, I never said that
Let me hold your ego while you get your bag packed
Don't take this the wrong way
But when the spade shows up, I call it by its first name

[Chorus]
We were, we were never gonna catch fire
We'd've burned up in the flames
Long before they ever rose up higher
Someday, I, I won't have to feel the cold, but I do now
So I'll know what it feels like when I feel fire, fire

[Post-Chorus]
Mmm, fire
Fire

[Verse 2]
Talk, touch, kiss, bend, this one's just like all the others
And I know all too well that I won't beat the waters
I held my breath to swim
The shallow shores aren't safe enough to dive in

[Chorus]
We were, we were never gonna catch fire
We'd've burned up in the flames
Long before they ever rose up higher
Someday, I, I won't have to feel the cold, but I do now
So I'll know what it feels like when I feel fire, fire

[Bridge]
That comes-and-stays fire
On-blood-and-veins fire
I've only ever wanted fire
In my chest, in my mouth, on my tongue, in my mind
In my soul, so my lungs can breathe in fire

[Chorus]
We'd've burned up in the flames
Long before they ever rose up higher
Someday, I, I won't have to feel the cold, but I do now
So I'll know what it feels like when I feel fire, fire

It has been an absolute pleasure watching her grow as a musician. I've been a fan since the very beginning and she honestly only gets better with age!

I've been getting more caught up with her music since I revisit Love Song (song from my childhood), and boy, how happy I am to finally be able to listen to her properly, she's amazing!

She is our hometown girl and we couldn't be more proud! She's reached, what I think of as a perfect balance between strength and beauty. A genuinely good person as well as phenomenal composer.

This video is an amazing metaphor for so many beautiful/terribly hard things, at least, that's my interpretation. The choreography is stunning, every frame full of so much feeling. And I LOVE these two's chemistry, and also how physically strong the woman dancing is, which is highlighted and wonderfully glorified by choice of dress and movement. And, the use of light and color and GEEEZ, this is just a wonderful piece of art to accompany an incredible song. CANNOT wait for April 5th!!!
