A belated #SoCS and on time #SLS are fab and on fire

Ah, peeps here I am and I am in a strange mood. It’s this sort of hanging in the air feeling where I am not in a bad mood but not in a good one either. It’s more “Am I bothered????”

So the computer originally said no but I watched the Hungergames two days in a row (yes no 1 AND 2 to the dismay of the best husband (Jeremy Clarkson voice) in the world and Jim’s prompt for today’s “Song Lyric Sunday” is “Burn/Fire/Flame” and the Hungergames fans of you know where this is leading πŸ™‚

I think both Alica Keys and Jennifer Lawrence are absolutely fab and believe you me “fab” is not a word in my vocabulary. I don’t think I ever used it. Even though I did feel rather fab when getting married to the above-mentioned hubby:

and I just realised that we got married in the year the first Hungergames and probably the above song came out: 2012! Yes, it was one of the years that the world was supposed to end ( can you remember? ) which would not be fab, would it?

But where are we?

Lyrics:

“Girl On Fire”

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
Filled with catastrophe, but she knows she can fly away

Ohhhh oh oh oh oh
She got both feet on the ground
And she’s burning it down
Ohhhh oh oh oh 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

Ohhhh oh oh oh
We got our feet on the ground
And we’re burning it down
Ohhhh oh oh oh 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 stares, as she goes by
‘Cause they can see the flame that’s in her eyes
Watch her as 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, oh ohhhhh oh oh oh ohhh oh oh oh ohhhh…

She’s just a girl and she’s on fire

Songwriters: Alicia Keys, Jeff Bhasker and Salaam Remi.

But don’t you feel that since 2012 the world at least as we knew it has ended? I definitely do and I also often feel like I walk on fire at times…

Never mind.

So back to the fab Alicia Keys and Jennifer Lawrence. I like Alicia’s music. To me, she is not only a fab musician but also a fab human who does her bit to change the lives of orphans and people in general. It is good share the good you got.

And I would love to be as outspoken as Jennifer when it comes to the problem’s women still face in this day and age when it comes to pay, opportunity and rights. Yes, I know a lot is changing since Mr Weinstein got caught at last but still lots to do ladies. We’ll get there, no doubt about that but it might need a little more time.

Ah, maybe one last word for the not Hungergames fans: The main character in the book played by Lawrence in the film is portrayed as “The girl on Fire” when she enters the Hungergames. Another character creates a dress for her which looks like it is on fire.

That’s for today. Hope you have a fab and not on fire Sunday!!!!!

  1. We were in an association once and one of the team leaders had “Girl on Fire” as her theme song so whenever she would go up on stage to speak they’d play it. Used to like the song…
