"Fire Burns" as written by Onika Tanya Maraj, Andrew Wansel and Warren Felder....
You shoulda left, the other day
You let me beg, for you to stay
This is a sickening joke that you play with my emotions
And so I pray you burn in hell and you never find the ocean

I hope your fire, fire burns baby
I hope your fire, fire burns baby
I hope you lay down in your sleep and you choke on every lie you told
And when you’re reaching out for me you’ll see you reap everything you sow

You piece of shit, you broke me down
Thought you said you, would hold me down
But I can see it in your eyes that your blinded by the flashing lights
And you's a stupid muthafucker for letting this thing pass you by

I hope your fire, fire burns baby
I hope your fire, fire burns baby
I hope you lay down in your sleep and you choke on every lie you told
And when you’re reaching out for me you’ll see you reap everything you sow

    My InterpretationThis song relates to me very much. Its a very dark song and I believe Nicki really speaks her mind. It is about a guy who is a player and he has played with her emotions. She also looks back and regrets begging for him to stay, when she should have just let him go. She believes that he was a great guy and he was sweet. It turns out that everything he ever told her, was a lie. He really hurt her because she cared a lot about him and he just crushed her in the end. So she is saying that you can "choke on every lie you told." Then when he comes crawling back she says "when you're reaching out for me you'll see you reap everything you sowe," meaing that he will she how bad he treated her and that karma will bite him in the ass.
