Ellie Goulding: Burn Meaning

Song Released: 2013



Burn Lyrics

Play "Burn"
on Amazon Music

We, we dont have to worry bout nothing
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...

    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

    This song is about MONEY - Burn that paper, because we don't need money to have fun and LOVE one another. Burn the need for money, the greed of man made us want, work and kill for money. Not needed, we are free people.

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

    Its a party song (raising our Hands, let it burn)
    I think it should show that she is happy
