Monday's Music Lyrics -- Firework by Katy Perry

Often songs (especially on the Top 40) might catch our attention because it's got a good beat or rhythm to it. The lyrics go unnoticed as you bop your head to the rhythm. But, if you listen closely there are some songs that might strike a reverent cord to you and move your body beyond the tempo of the song.

Firework by Katy Perry is a song, that I fear some people may miss the lyrics. I love this song because it conveys a strong message that really we all empower such brillance. And though there may be times where you may feel challenged or even insignificant if you can stop and realize how you can turn things around, you will astound yourself. As one of my favourite sayings states: "It's never too late to become what you wanted to be." As we embark on 2011 we are engulfed with hopes of possibilities of a brand new day... Remember this feeling all year long and that you are a firework!

I know I will! Watch out 2011!!! I'm coming for you!

FIREWORK
Songwriters: Dean, Esther; Eriksen, Mikkel; Hermansen, Tor Erik; Perry, Katy; Wilhelm, Sandy Julien;

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 4th of July



'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down

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 4th of July

'Cause baby you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down

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 you're worth
Make 'em go, oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
