"Things We Lost in the Fire" as written by and Daniel Smith....
Things we lost to the flame
Things we'll never see again
All that we've amassed
Sits before us, shattered into ash

These are the things, the things we lost
The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire
These are the things, the things we lost
The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire

We sat and made a list
Of all the things that we have
Down the backs of table tops
Ticket stubs and your diaries I read them all one day

When loneliness came and you were away
Oh they told me nothing new,
But I love to read the words you used
These are the things, the things we lost

The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire
These are the things, the things we lost
The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire

I was the match and you were the rock
Maybe we started this fire
We sat apart and watched
All we had burned on the pyre

(You said) we were born with nothing
And we sure as hell have nothing now
(You said) we were born with nothing
And we sure as hell have nothing now

These are the things, the things we lost
The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire
These are the things, the things we lost
The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire

Do you understand that we will never be the same again
Do you understand that we will never be the same again
The future's in our hands and we will never be the same again
The future's in our hands and we will never be the same again

These are the things, the things we lost
The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire
These are the things, the things we lost
The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire

These are the things, the things we lost
These are the things we lost in the fire fire fire

Flames they licked the walls
Tenderly they turned to dust all that I adore

    My InterpretationI think this means that things are lost because of anger. The fire in this song would represent anger, and when the song says "lost in the fire" it means that people lost things because they took out their anger and let it get the better of them. This song teaches that when people let that happen, they'll loose valuable things because of anger.
