Hold on cause I'm letting go
I'm gonna lasso your heart like a rodeo
I'm gonna give you some till you want some more
Cause all I see is an open door
And I see where it's leading me
All of this energy been bottled up way too long
It's powerful, powerful
You see what I'm getting at
I'm ready for all of that
If I'm not a star, you're blind

I've got rings on my fingers
And glitter in my hair
I bought a one-way ticket
And I just got here
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town
I've got high heel stilettos
And I'm kicking in doors
[Clean version:] And kissing your feet ain't what my lipstick's for
[Explicit version:] And kissing your ass ain't what my lipstick's for
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town tonight

I'm climbing high but there ain't no net
You'd like to see me jump a bit
Well everyday's just like Russian Roulette
I'm gonna play, play, play with no regrets
Cause I'm tired of second best
[Clean version:] Tired of doing this
[Explicit version:] Tired of sitting bitch
Tired of hypocrites
Twisted like licorice
I'm crushing them in my fist
Hushing their ignorance
You had your chance, now's mine

I've got rings on my fingers
And glitter in my hair
I bought a one-way ticket
And I just got here
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town
I've got high heel stilettos
And I'm kicking in doors
[Clean version:] And kissing your feet ain't what my lipstick's for
[Explicit version:] And kissing your ass ain't what my lipstick's for
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town

Tonight nothing's standing in my way.
There's no obstacles anymore.
In a minute I'll be on my way
To the moment I've been waiting for.

I've got rings on my fingers
And glitter in my hair
Bought a one-way ticket and I just got here
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town
I'm gonna run this town tonight

I've got rings on my fingers
And glitter in my hair
I bought a one-way ticket and I just got here
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town
I've got high heel stilettos
And I'm kicking in doors
[Clean version:] And kissing your feet ain't what my lipstick's for
[Explicit version:] And kissing your ass ain't what my lipstick's for
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town
I'm gonna run this town
Run this town
I'm gonna run, I'm gonna run, gonna run
Run this town

I'm gonna run, I'm gonna run, gonna run
Run this town tonight
Run this town, run this town tonight
I'm gonna run this town, run this town tonight
(Tonight, tonight, tonight...)

    It probaly means that anyone can do anything they can do so when theyre saying im gonna run this town, theyre saying no one can boss them around, they can do what theyre going to do what theyll do. Be yourselves!!!

    It means that people can't hold you back and tell you what you have to be. Just because you don't belong with them doesn't mean that you can't be cool in a different way, which is likely to be better than theirs. Ps, i love this song
