Just Like Fire - Pink



The Experience: If I can light the world up for just one day... Is it better to burn bright and fast, or to make a lasting difference?



Music video: P!nk follows her daughter Willow Sage into the mirror, through the chess match, the tea party, and a loss against Time. In the end she's dragged off into an insane asylum, no Willow Sage in sight, as the doctor assures her husband she'll be fine. There's a tension between the self-centered lyrics and the haphazard and ultimately failed attempt to stay by her daughter's side. 

The Meaning of Just Like Fire: Your way, your style, your dreams. We're wired to always want more and better - to want it all and fly free. Just like fire. But fire burns and goes out - I know that I'm running out of timeWhere is the line between being yourself and letting others - and yourself - down with your craziness?

Ask yourself: Can you just be yourself by yourself? Or do you need to take everyone else into account?

Movie Soundtrack: Alice in the Looking Glass (2016)

LYRICS:

I know that I'm running out of time
I want it all, mmm, mmm
And I'm wishing they'd stop tryna turn me off
I want it on, mmm, mmm
And I'm walking on a wire, trying to go higher
Feels like I'm surrounded by clowns and liars
Even when I give it all away
I want it all, mmm, mmm

We came here to run it, run it, run it
We came here to run it, run it, run it

Just like fire, burning up the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I'll be flying free
I'mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me any way
Just like fire, uh

And people like to laugh at you cause they are all the same, mmm, mmm
See I would rather we just go a different way than play the game mmm, mmm
And no matter the weather, we can do it better
You and me together, forever and ever
We don't have to worry bout' a thing, bout' a thing

We came here to run it, run it, run it
We came here to run it, run it, run it

Just like fire, burning up the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I'll be flying free
I'mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me any way

Just like fire, fire, fire
Run it, run it, run it
We came here to run it, run it, run it

So look I came here to run it
Just cause nobody's done it
Y'all don't think I can run it
But look, I've been here, I've done it
Impossible? Please
Watch, I do it with ease
You just gotta believe
Come on, come on with me

Oh, what's a girl to do?
(What, what?)
Hey, what's a girl to do?
(What, what?)
Oh, what's a girl to do?
(What, what?)
Oh, what's a girl to do?

Just like fire, burning up the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way

Just like fire, burning up the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I'll be flying free
I'mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me any way
Just like fire, fire

Running, running, running
Just like fire
Run it, run it, run it
