Ellie Goulding: Burn Meaning
Song Released: 2013
Cause we got the fire, and we're burning one hell of a something
They, they gonna see us from outer space, outer space
Light it up, like we're the stars of the human race, human race
When the lights...

I think its about being the best you can. live in every way you can. dont let other people stop you. live in the moment. be the best person you can be. if you listen to this song with your whole heart you will see the power and something just indescribable in this song.

I want to write something that has to do with music and I’ve been writing it about thirty minutes and I produced it with Angelina Jolie and also Gal Gadot she did amazing songwriter they’re incredible and they’re helping me with music and different cultures so me and Ben can go and do music videos and have some fun. And we can travel around for musicians.

I think it means something that we don't know about. She is the one who can tell the true meaning of the song

Upon its release, "Burn" was met with a mixed response from music critics, who praised it as "catchy" and noted it as one of Goulding's most radio-friendly songs to date, while others felt it was not memorable.

It's about a party.
Ever seen one of those parties, like say a super bowl game or something, where people light matches and raise their lighters? It's like that.
Could be they are showing appreciating everyone? She said "Giving love to the world" so maybe some form of memorial or something.
I always thought this song was about a passionate relationship that overpowers everyone like a fire.
Why I think this:
"When the light'so turned down they don't what they heard" (the only light and sound is fire crackling)
"Strike a match, play it loud, giving love to the world" (love is like a match that can ignite a fire)
"There's no secret now" (as in out love is no longer a secret because we are stating it)

Cause we got the fire - The holy spirit (God)
They gonna see us from outer space - The rapture, everyone left behind will see us floating to space
They don't know what they heard - The last trumpet sounding signaling the rapture

I think the meaning is about something that she knows and we don't know about planet earth and alien visitation or some explosion.
