I knew you were
You were gonna come to me
& here you are

But you better choose carefully
Cause I...
I'm capable of anything
Of anything
& everything


Make me your Aphrodite
Make me your one and only

But don't make me your enemy
Your enemy
Your enemy


So you wanna play with magic
Boy you should know what you're fallin' for

Baby do you dare to do this
Cause I'm comin' at you like a dark horse


Are you ready for
Ready for
A perfect storm
Perfect storm

Cause once you're mine
Once you're mine
There's no goin' back


Mark my words
This love will make you levitate
Like a bird
Like a bird without a cage

We're down to earth
If you choose to walk away
Don't walk away


It's in the palm of your hand now baby
It's a yes or a no
No maybe
So just be sure
Before you give it up to me
Up to me
Give it up to me


So you wanna play with magic
Boy you should know what you're fallin' for

Baby do you dare to do this
Cause I'm comin' at you like a dark horse


Are you ready for
Ready for
A perfect storm
Perfect storm
Cause once you're mine
Once you're mine
There's no goin' back


She's a beast
I call her Karma
She eat your heart out
Like Jeffrey Dahmer

Be careful
Try not to lead her on

Shawty's heart was on steroids
Cause her love was so strong

You may fall in love
When you meet her

If you get the chance you better keep her
She swears by it but if you break her heart
She turn cold as a freezer

That fairy tale ending with a knight in shining armor
She can be my Sleeping Beauty
I'm gon' put her in a coma
Woo!
Damn I think I love her
Shawty so bad

I'm sprung and I don't care
She got me like a roller coaster
Turn the bedroom into a fair
Her love is like a drug
I was tryna hit it and quit it

But lil'mama so dope
I messed around and got addicted


So you wanna play with magic
Boy you should know what you're fallin' for
(You should know)
Baby do you dare to do this
Cause I'm comin' at you like a dark horse
(Like a dark horse)

Are you ready for
Ready for (Ready for)
A perfect storm
Perfect storm (A perfect storm)
Cause once you're mine
Once you're mine (ohhhh)
There's no goin' back

    It means if a guy decides to date a girl, he better not lie to her just to get into her pants because something magical happens when male and female unite on a spiritual level and will turn the female into your arch enemy number one. If you have sex with a girl don't tell her you love her just to get it. If you tell a girl you love her, you better mean it and stick by her the rest of your life and treat her right. Otherwise, karma is out to get you.

    The song is all about a love that should not be mistaken. A love that will be eternal. If you choose to realize that this love will not be perfect, it's a goodbye for you.

    Note. It's just about devil invitation, Katy Perry is one of the free masonic group. Look at the symbol shown, she accept the last gift from the man who is Pharaonic, she killed all of the other. And this song is not about love; She is insulting to all races except pharaonics. She destroyed the God Necklace in "1min-1sec".

    Most people think this song is about love-well, it's. But sometimes you only look at the love perspective. I love this song for one reason: it's dark and mysterious and different. This song is telling me alot of things but the one thing that stands out the most is how powerful the words are. It's saying don't only think of me as your girl. I came out of the blue turned out to be 'the one'. But now you are also mine. If you walk away, I'll get you back because I'm a person too. I'm just as powerful. I have a decisions. If you destroy me, I won't run away. I'll do the same to you. You knew this when you met me. I'm not under anyone's control.

    Never ever treat a girl wrong or karma will be out to get you. For me this not song only wants to entertain. This could mean something deeper in relation to love life. It's a lesson for every one. This is a life lesson you should never for get. Better to learn it this way not the hard way. If you have sex with a girl don't tell her you love her just to get it. If you tell a girl you love her, you better mean it and stick by her the rest of your life and treat her right. Otherwise, karma is out to get you. It's saying don't only think of me as your girl. I came out of the blue turned out to be 'the one'. But now you are also mine. If you walk away, I'll get you back because I'm a person too. I'm just as powerful. I have a decisions. If you destroy me, I won't run away. I'll do the same to you. You knew this when you met me. I'm not under anyone's control. It's also saying never under estimate the power of anyone. A dark horse is generally someone who appears like one thing on the outside, but is something else underneath, usually a 'dark side'. Taking this meaning into consideration, Katy is trying to warn any possible lovers that if they think they can screw her over, the cannot, as she isn't what she seems to be like in the song it says if you wat to play with magic then you should know what your falling for.
