"Fire and Flames" is the closing track of Joyride
. "It kind of felt like I needed to close the project with a different thought," Tinashe told Consequence of Sound
. "This song was kind of therapeutic, I guess, for me writing it to really reflect about my last relationship even though it was like, a really long time ago. I think that's part of what the song's really about, that it's hard to let go of someone that you care about even if you know they're not good for you. You know, you just really want to help people, sometimes that can't be helped and I think that song is kind of about that."
