Katy Perry – Firework lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
You just gotta ignite the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the Fourth of July


[Chorus]
'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

[Verse 2]
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.

[Pre-Chorus]
You just gotta ignite the light, and let it shine,
Just own the night like the Fourth of July!

[Chorus]
'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
.

[Bridge]
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
.

[Chorus]
'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

[Outro]
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.
