"Place for Us" as written by Mikky Ekko, Nick Ruth and Amar Malik....
There is a wall of silence in our way
What's quiet in the voices I cannot say
Through all the walls I fought in my mind
And your eyes are the only refuge I find

So we moved under the spotlight
And never thought about the price we'd pay
When all the world around us slipped away

Hey, is there a place for us
Where flames flicker and wave for us
And we can see the future and the dreams it's made of
Hey, is there a place
A place for us

A place for us

Well I'm not afraid to die here
But damned if I go on living a lie here

So long we revelled in the spotlight
And never think about the price we'd pay
When all the world around us slipped away

Hey, is there a place for us
Where flames flicker and wave for us
And we can see the future and the dreams it's made of
Hey, is there a place
A place for us

A place for us

Now from the streets we run
Eyes wild like the sun
We are the new creators
We are the chosen ones

And as the city blazes
You hear a voice that you can trust
Singing is this the place for us

Hey, is there a place for us
Where flames flicker and wave for us
And we can see the future and the dreams it's made of
Hey, is there a place
A place for us

A place for us
A place for us
A place for us
A place for us

    General CommentThis song reminds me of Katniss and Peeta on the Victory Tour. He says, "For so song we reveled in the spotlight but we never think about the price we'd pay." Katniss and Peeta walk a thin tightrope trying to appease Snow and the districts. They try so hard to find a place were they belong and the bridge says, Now from the streets we run
    "Eyes wild like the sun
    We are the new creators
    We are the chosen ones

    And as the city blazes
    You hear a voice that you can trust
    Singing is this the place for us"

    I think this means that Katniss and Peeta both choose the route of rebellion and now they finally found a place where they can belong. Just my interpretation.

    My OpinionI think the song is from Peeta's view about how he always strives for Katniss, would die for Katniss.
