Katy Perry – Firework lyrics

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.

    Katy Perry was encouraging other people to do what they are afraid to do, she is saying that they can be brighter than the moon if they believe themselves that they can do it. Just what she said "'Cause baby your a firework, Come on show 'em what your worth, make them go oh-oh-oh as you shoot across the sky-y-y," which means that they can do better what they expect. She is saying that everyone is a firework and we can make our colors burst, and we can make the others oh-oh-oh or meaning we can make them say "WOW" because we all shine bright like a firework and a diamond.

    I think it kind of reminds me of a lady gaga thing. "baby your a firework, come one let your colors burst" I feel like it means 'let your colors burst' let you be you, be weird, let your feelings out and be shown. Make them gasp and gawk because you are amazing, you are strong, and you are just like a firework, loud, strong, proud, and amazingly beautiful inside and out. Yes I realize how frick'n gushy I sound, but that's what I think.
