Katy Perry says & Realization

I have a weird tendency to relate song lyrics to my own life. And it's not any different with this one.  I don't know about you, but I love Katy Perry, I think she's beautiful, I think her husband is hilarious, and I love her music!

I was watching Glee on Tuesday night (of course) and realized something.
I sing this song in the shower, hum it under my breath at work, and I always think of Bryan; one because I thought I was singing, "Baby you're a firework" to him, and two because 4th of July is his favorite holiday, double cute points.
This song that's been stuck in my head for the past - however long - is not about singing to a loved one telling them they're a firework, it's about loving yourself and knowing that

YOU are not a waste of space.
YOU gotta ignite the light and let it shine.
YOU are an original and cannot be replaced.
YOU are the firework-let your colors burst

Just a little realization I wanted to share - all too often we forget it.

Even if you don't like KP, I hope you can appreciate the message in this song :)

Happy day to you my lovies ♥


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
