Need a Personal Anthem? Try this on for size…

Katy Perry -Teenage DreamTo borrow a baseball analogy… “Life often throws a few curve balls” at us! And that means there will be times when you’ll feel like crap… and not want to do much about, well… anything!

So to perk yourself up a bit when you are feeling down, it might help if you have a favourite song you can listen to and pump up the volume a bit to lift your spirits!

So try this one out and let me know what you think!

Lately I’ve found the “Firework” song by Katy Perry from the 2010 Album “Teenage Dream” to be useful in getting me going a little – especially the tremendous bass beat in the chorus when played through a decent sound system! Whew!

And yes… even though it’s a song about kids and teens overcoming difficulties in their lives, it’s even useful for us older farts too – male or female 😉

So turn up your volume and give it a go!

Lyrics:
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 them what you’re worth
Make them go, “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make them go, “Oh, oh, oh”
You’re gonna leave before they know

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 the reason why
All the doors are closed
So you could open one
That leads you to the perfect …

Like a lightning bolt
Your heart will glow
And when it’s time you 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 them what you’re worth
Make them go, “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make them go, “Oh, oh, oh”
You’re gonna leave before they know

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 them what you’re worth
Make them go, “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make them go, “Oh, oh, oh”
You’re gonna leave before they know

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