Day 10: Firework

I love Katy Perry.  She’s quirky, and funny, and entertaining–especially if you’re on twitter and you get to read her tweets.  Those tweets with fellow artist, Taylor Swift, are funny–especially the cats.

Anyways, this isn’t a post about the artist but about the song.  And for today, I decided that Firework would be the song for the tenth day of the hundred day song challenge (yes, it is a challenge now).  This is perhaps one of the most popular songs we have airing on several radio stations and music channels.

What I love about this song is that it tells you to embrace who you are.  To not be ashamed of yourself no matter how different you may look or feel like.  It tells you that you are special and that you are meant for greatness as long as you take the initiative and grab it.  The song tells us not to be afraid of what other people may think; that their opinions about us do not matter much compared to what our opinion on ourselves are.  You won’t get anywhere if you believe that you’re not worth it.  You have to remember that everyone in this world is worth something.  We aren’t born just so we could pass through life without amounting to anything.  We were born so that we could live, and because we are meant for something–something greater than ourselves–and we can only reach that if we take pride in who we are as a person, as an individual.

The song is pretty catchy, and the first time I heard it, I knew that I wanted it on my iPhone (and iPod).  Firework is one of the tracks of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” album.  The song has garnered a lot of praise (and a couple of criticisms, which is to be expected).  It’s music video has been viewed 131, 347, 141 times (and counting).

Below are the lyrics to the song, which can be downloaded via iTunes.  The album can also be bought at the local music store near you.

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting throught 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 scream
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 gunna leave ’em fallin’ down-own-own

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 you’re 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 blow
And when it’s time, you’ll 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 all in awe-awe-awe”

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

Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on show ’em what your worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you’re a firework
Come on slet 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

There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling". Also, a YouTuber dealing with video games and gaming.
