Hope from a pop star

Thursday, July 07, 2011

So I use the radio as my alarm instead of that nerve-jolting beeping. Right as the radio came on, Katy Perry's Firework started to play. I've heard the song a million times, but never focused on the words. I laid there this morning and just LISTENED. If you were like me and never paid attention to the words, here they are:

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 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 falling down-own-own


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 falling down-own-own

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

I don't know if anyone else here believes in signs, but the fact that THIS song started, from the very beginning, as soon as my radio came on, tells me it was a sign. I never would have believed that such inspiration could come from such a place as a pop song. I'm taking this sign and running with it. This is my new mantra.

Needless to say, today wasn't near as dark as yesterday. I think my colors just may burst.

Okay, I'm going to finish my visits to everyone before I cry again. I've done enough of that. I hope this sparks someone else as much as it sparked me. Have a great night everyone.
