Do you ever feel like a plastic bag,
Drifting through 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 screams, but no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that there'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 you're 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 falling down oh oh

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 the reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road

Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it's time you 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 you're 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 falling down oh oh


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


'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're 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 all in awe awe awe

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

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

    Oh really! She said that part. Oh, she's really doing her part as a wife of Mr. Russell Brand. Love you, Katy Brand. For you, gaby2011, you'd better not to see me cuz I don't know how or what should I do for you. I tell you I'm not that good in meeting others. But if I were to see you, I promisely tell you that I would proud of you of being a part of Katy Brand's life.

    This sing touches me personally right down to the core. During my bad times I was having a couple of weeks ago (my two best friends died, family problems, friend drama, stress) I heard this song and it just really helped me thru them. Sometimes I feel like giving up but then I remember this song and how Katy brand (^^) is saying that no matter what, you're a valuable person and no body can tell you different. This song is inspiring and heart warming and I love it.

    I think this song is alright. The lyrics are okay, maybe motivational for the Katy Perry lovers, but for girl who knows all types of music, I grant it okay. It tells you that you are special, that no one should ever make you feel like a loser, and that you do have something special in you. However, I think this song way too easily fits in the mold. The meaning is way to easy to interpret. Katy Perry is a great singer, but she still has some work to do.
