Firework

You know, I always thought that Katy Perry had a good voice. But, I never found her lyrics to be very good. Hot 'n Cold was OK if you got past the one swear at the beginning, but I never liked California Gurls or Teenage Dream. Just didn't like the lyrics. And then a couple weeks ago I was listening to the radio in the car when this song came on.
And the lyrics were so GOOD. Really inspring. And when I turned up the volume I recognized the voice, and I thought "Wow. That's Katy Perry. With these awesome song lyrics."
You probably know what song I'm talking about.
It's Firework.


 Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting throught the wind
Wanting to start again?

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in

Do you ever feel already buried deep
Six feet under scream
But no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that tehre's still a chance for you
Cause there's a spark in you

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own

You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed
So you can open one that leads you to the perfect road
 Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it's time, you'll know

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
And now it's time to let it through

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em goin "Oh, oh, oh!"

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon


Such. Perfect. Lyrics.
So many good ideas.
Be yourself. Let your colors shine out. Don't be afraid. Let people know who you really are. Shine YOUR light. Bad things are going to happen (like hurricanes) but good things can follow (rainbows). Capture everyone's attention with your light, and brighten the room with your cheerful presence as a firework lights up the sky on the Fourth of July. You're your own person, an original, AND YOU CANNOT BE REPLACED.

So.

Ignite your light.


AND LET IT SHINE.

I think the lyrics are good, too! The only thing is I don't like her voice. I don't know what it is... I just don't like it...

But yes, I like that song :)

:D I liked this post. I love the message of this song, but to me the lyrics phrase it kind of awkwardly. Like yeah, I'm depressed, emo, etc, but I don't really feel like a plastic bag. Hahaha. :D

Peace,

Teenage Dream and all her others songs have fun beats but the lyrics are just blah. haha
