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've 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 them what you're worth
Make them go oh, oh, oh
As you shoot across the sky-y-y.
Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make them go oh, oh, oh
You're gonna leave them all in awe, awe, awe.

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

May be a 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 glow
And when it's time, you'll know.

You've 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 them what you're worth
Make them go oh, oh, oh
As you shoot across the sky-y-y.
Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make them go oh, oh, oh
You're gonna leave them 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-oh-oh

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-y-y.
Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make them go oh, oh, oh
You're gonna leave them 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
