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

    Many songs are like Firework meanings. We could have different meanings about Firework like having our self-confident and our hidden talents. BUT, surely I tell you this song is meaningful and could make you inspired and have good life with others. This song inspires me a lot.

    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 dont 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.

    It's always been inside of you-you-you and now it is time to let it through...
    * It's time for us to burst our hidden talents and character.. Don't let others to degrade you as someone who is too dirty and talentless.

    after a hurricane comes a rainbow.
    after the storm comes the shine.
    after the rain comes the sun.

    each problem has a solution.
    that would be my straight answer.
    thank you.
    by the way, i'll pray for all of you.
