You are my sunshine, my only sunshine; you make me happy, when skies are gray It's a jungle out there Its as easy as pie That is the voice of an angel Shake it like a polarid picture Feelin so fly like a G6
Popular songs with metaphors  “Firework” by Katy Perry

---what are they really talking about

“Firework” by Katy Perry Do you ever feel like a plastic bag Drifting throught the wind Wanting to start again Do you ever feel. cannot be replaced If you only knew what the future holds After a hurricane comes a rainbow . oh. 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 your worth Make 'em go "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.

your heart will blow And when it's time. oh. oh!" You're gonna leave 'em all in awe-awe-awe" Boom. 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.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. boom . oh. moon It's always been inside of you. boom. oh!" You're gonna leave 'em all in awe-awe-awe Boom. oh!" As you shoot across the sky-y-y Baby you're a firework Come on let your colors burst Make 'em go "Oh. you. moon. 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. boom. oh. 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. boom Even brighter than the moon.

moon. boom Even brighter than the moon. boom. moon. moon Boom.Even brighter than the moon. moon .

.I was riding shotgun with my hair undone in the front seat of his car He's got a one-hand feel on the steering wheel The other on my heart I look around.. Sneakin' out late.. Our song is the slamming screen doors. tapping on your window When we're on the phone and you talk real slow 'cause it's late and your mama don't know Our song is the way you laugh The first date "man. I didn't kiss her.. tapping on your window When we're on the phone and you talk real slow 'cause it's late and your mama don't know Our song is the way you laugh The first date "man. Sneakin' out late.. before I said amen Asking God if he could play it again I was walking up the front porch steps after everything that day Had gone all wrong and been trampled on And lost and thrown away Got to the hallway. before I said amen Asking God if he could play it again I was riding shotgun with my hair undone .. and I should have" And when I got home .. turn the radio down He says baby is something wrong? I say nothing I was just thinking how we don't have a song And he says... Sneakin' out late. and I should have" And when I got home . I didn't kiss her. well on my way to my lovin' bed I almost didn't notice all the roses And the note that said. I didn't kiss her. and I should have" And when I got home . Our song is the slamming screen doors. tapping on your window When we're on the phone and you talk real slow 'cause it's late and your mama don't know Our song is the way you laugh The first date "man. before I said amen Asking God if he could play it again I've heard every album... listened to the radio Waited for something to come along That was as good as our song. Cause Our song is the slamming screen doors..

In the front seat of his car I grabbed a pen and an old napkin And I wrote down our song .

Hey. no highway. bloomin' in a summer shower. no daisy. an open field to play Hey. bloomin' in a summer shower. Forty acre farm. And I drive an old rusted out Chevrolet. bought some cherry lip gloss. I-I'm a wildflower. Soakin' up the way of life I was raised in. Ponytail dancin'. Painted my toes. Runnin' barefoot. I-I'm a wildflower. Ponytail dancin'. I can't help it. Runnin' barefoot. I'm a wild flower growin' in the sunshine. Ooh yeah Ooh yeah I'm a wildflower Ooh yeah Ooh yeah I'm a wildflower Yeah yeah yeah yeah I'm a wildflower . I can't help it. Runnin' barefoot. I can't help it. I can't help it.. bloomin' in a summer shower. yeah yeah ah yeah I was born off an old dirt road.Mmmm. I think I'm gonna borrow it and wear it this weekend. The boys all rubber neck while they're out makin' hay Hey. Yeah. Ooh yeah Ooh yeah There's a little cotton dress hangin' in my sister's closet. bloomin' in a summer shower. I'm a wild flower growin' in the sunshine. no interstate. Ponytail dancin'. I'm a wild flower growin' in the sunshine. Ponytail dancin'. I'm a wild flower growin' in the sunshine. I-I'm a wildflower. No rose. I-I'm a wildflower. Soakin' up the way of life I was raised in.. Runnin' barefoot. Soakin' up the way of life I was raised in. can't touch what I got. Soakin' up the way of life I was raised in. Ooh yeah Ooh yeah I'm just a girl that needs a little sun. A little rain.

it is a flower And you. its only seed It's the heart. afraid of dying That never learns to live When the night has been too lonely And the road has been too long And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong Just remember in the winter . afraid of waking That never takes the chance It's the one who won't be taken Who cannot seem to give And the soul. it is a hunger An endless aching need I say love.Some say love. it is a river That drowns the tender reed Some say love. it is a razor That leaves your soul to bleed Some say love. afraid of breaking That never learns to dance It's the dream.

in the spring Becomes the rose .Far beneath the bitter snow Lies the seed That with the sun's love.

I close my eyes Only for a moment and the moment's gone All my dreams Pass before my eyes a curiosity Dust in the wind All they are is dust in the wind Same old song Just a drop of water in an endless sea All we do Crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see Dust in the wind All we are is dust in the wind Now don't hang on Nothing lasts forever but the Earth and Sky It slips away And all your money won't another minute buy Dust in the wind All we are is dust in the wind All we are is dust in the wind Dust in the wind Everything is dust in the wind Everything is dust in the wind .

you will be my music I can't wait any longer if I'm wrong I'll never find the words to tell you All the things I need to say And I'm afraid that as time goes by That someday soon you'll go away And I'll be lost and trying Trying for songs I'll never sing Wanting you. wanting you is everything You will be my music Yes. you will be my song Yes you. you will be my song You will be my music I can't wait any longer if I'm wrong I can't wait any longer for my song .When all the songs are out of tune And all the rhymes ring so untrue When I can't find the words to say Or the thoughts I long to bring to you When I hear lonely singers Who are just as lost as me Making noise. not melody Then you will be my music You.

We slowly drove. Or rather. He kindly stopped for me. Since then 'tis centuries. The cornice but a mound. he knew no haste. We paused before a house that seemed A swelling of the ground.“Because I Could Not Stop for Death” By Emily Dickenson Because I could not stop for Death. he passed us. We passed the setting sun. and yet each Feels shorter than the day I first surmised the horses' heads Were toward eternity. in the ring. The carriage held but just ourselves And Immortality. For his civility. . My tippet only tulle. The dews grew quivering and chill. and my leisure too. We passed the school. We passed the fields of gazing grain. And I had put away My labor. The roof was scarcely visible. where children strove At recess. For only gossamer my gown.
