‘Cause maybe we’re all fireworks?

The moment I saw this I couldn’t wait to share this inspirational video with you – Katy Perry singing “Firework” with Jodi DiPiazza. The video explains why music is so important to Jodi, and Jodi’s story makes this duet all the more moving.

I had never really stopped and listened to the lyrics before – this video really brought them to life for me. I’ll admit, I shed a tear. It made me think about all the wonderful people I know who haven’t yet realised their potential to be beautiful fireworks, to light up the sky and bring happiness to themselves and others.

Fireworks come in all different shapes, sizes and colours. Some shoot quietly up into the sky and cascade down in glittering showers, others make us jump with their loud whizzes and bangs, filling us with adrenalin. I think the best fireworks shows are when all these different types come together, each has their part to play. If you ever feel like you don’t fit in, remember, the loud fireworks make us appreciate the quieter ones, and vice versa. Life is all about contrasts.

What sort of firework would you be? “It’s always been inside of you, now its time to let it through”.

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, oh, oh

As you shoot across the sky

 

Baby, you’re a firework

Come on, let your colors burst

Make ’em go, oh, oh, 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 the reason why, 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 glow

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, oh, oh

As you shoot across the sky

 

Baby, you’re a firework

Come on, let your colors burst

Make ’em go, oh, oh, 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, oh, oh

As you shoot across the sky

 

Baby, you’re a firework

Come on, let your colors burst

Make ’em go, oh, oh, 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!
