KATY PERRY


Roar Lyrics

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing
So I fell for everything

You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger,
a fighter, dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh...
You’re gonna hear me roar

Now I’m floating like a buterfly
Stinging like a bee, I earned my stripes
I went from zero
To my own hero

You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger,
a fighter, dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh...
You’re gonna hear me roar

Roar-or, roar-or, roar-or

I got the eye of the tiger,
a fighter, dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh...
You’re gonna hear me roar

Sure, there will be obstacles that you will have to overcome. And sure, there will be things that will make you think twice. But trust me, it all pays off in the end. In this song Katy's obstacle was a person who made the journey so much harder for her. She is a champion. I am an avid soccer player. I wasn't very good at first, so I decided to not let that get the best of me. I would play every recess with the boys, and that would make me stronger both physically, and mentally. And sure enough, I made the school soccer team in Grade 4, when even the teachers said it would be hard for a little girl. I was the youngest on the team. So, just keep pushing and trying, there will be obstacles big and small, but overcome them. Don't let them stop you. Sometimes you have to understand that. Katy is such an inspiration in so many ways. Seeing her movie made me change my perspective about her. She is a fighter and a warrior. So if anyone or anything tries to stop you, take it as a compliment they think you are strong enough to make it, so they are putting obstacles in front of you. You are a champion, and THEY are gonna hear YOU roar.

I think that this meaning of Katy Perry Roar is that be strong, fight for your right, don't let anyone or anything get in your way and be who ever you want to be. I think that Katy Perry is the best singer in the world and she was the one who inspired me to sing and I really want to be as good as her.

All Katy trying to tell us is that you have to stand on your own sometimes... And always when you stand up for nothing you will always fall for everything. You have to stay strong like a tiger and fight. Fear has no place in the heart of the brave. You have to ignore the voice of reason.

Questa canzone mi fa pensare a tutte quelle person che nel corso della mia vita hanno cercato di abbattermi, umiliarmi e che mi hanno lasciato credendosi di aver vinto!!!! Ma nella vita il male non vince mai e nel mio cuore un ruggito di vittoria!!!!!

This song reminds me all those people during my life who have tried to put me down, shame on me when they left me thinking they've won!!!! But in life evil never wins and in my heart i hear a roar of victory!!!!
