Lyrics: Roar – Katy Perry

Roar by Katy Perry

[Verse 1]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
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 your ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

[Chorus]
I got the eye of the tiger, the 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 butterfly
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 your ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

[Chorus]
I got the eye of the tiger, the 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, the 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

Katy Perry Reunites With Rihanna at Album Release Party in NYC

Seems just like old times.

Katy Perry caught up with pal Rihanna Monday night in downtown New York City at the pre-album release party for Perry’s upcoming effort, Prism, just days after the album’s lead single, “Roar,” leaked online.

But there was nothing but smiles (and some fierce camera mugging) for the BFFs during their happy reunion.

In a snapshot that RiRi posted on Instagram, a beaming Perry cozies up to the Barbadian beauty, while Rihanna, lips pursed and eyes shut, strikes a playful pose.

“She. X She. #KatyAnna #RIHunited,” the “Nobody’s Business” songbird captioned the pic.

The last time two pals were spotted together, they were hanging out at Rihanna’s show in New York City back in May, where Perry tweeted: “Throw it [emoji pointing up] throw it [emoji pointing up] , that’s how we [ball emoji] #immacomintogetyouRiRi.”

Perry recently gushed to Elle U.K. about her friendship with Rihanna. “I love her and every time I see her, I’m reminded of the light that she has,” John Mayer’s gal-pal said. “There’s a lot of dark in this business.”
Still, Perry appeared to express her concern about the company that her friend keeps.
“I know a lot of people out there with the most detrimental entourages—they are the root of their demise,” she said, declining to name-check anyone specifically. “It’s really unfortunate but you can’t save these people. My days of celebrity saving are over.”

John Mayer Buys Guitar for Fan

Yeah, we’d probably have the same reaction if we were gifted a guitar by John Mayer.

Julie Fermin’s wildest dream came true at Rudy’s Music Shop in New York City Friday when Katy Perry and John Mayer happened to pop into the store shortly after Fermin and her two friends.

According to salesperson Brad Tretola, the three pals were browsing the acoustic guitars when they became aware of the couple’s presence and begin to squeal with excitement over their chance encounter with their music idols.

And after Tretola told Mayer he had a few fans in the shop, the “Gravity” singer casually joined in on the girl’s conversation.

“Katy and John treated them so kindly, they were such sweethearts!” Tretola tells E! News. “Katy told one of the girls, ‘I love your earrings.'”

After the elated fans snapped a pic with the superstars, John asked if any of the girls played guitar, and Fermin told Mayer she did.

The aspiring musician then showed Mayer the acoustic guitar she’d been testing out and said she had to wait on her dad to see if they could afford the pricey piece.

As if meeting the musician and Katy Perry wasn’t enough, watch as three fans flip out after learning their idol secretly bought them an instrument.

John proceeded to look at the guitar, glance at the price tag and continue to chat a bit more before leaving, but little did Fermin know, he secretly purchased the guitar on his way out of the store.

Gordon French, the shop’s manager, says Mayer paid as he was exiting the shop and politely asked him not to tell the girls until after he and Katy left.

Upon learning of Mayer’s generous purchase, the girls began to scream and jump for joy over the extravagant gesture.

“John Mayer bought me this guitar! This is my guitar now!” Fermin squeals in the adorable video.

Tretola also noted how the guitar could have been worth $20 or $20,000, but it was John’s simple gesture, and particularly the fact he did not want any recognition, that left Tretola in awe of the musician.

Watch the video to see the lucky girls dance, scream and totally freak out!

Talk about a real-life teenage dream.

Lyrics: The One That Got Away – Katy Perry

The One That Got Away by Katy Perry

The One That Got Away by Katy Perry

Summer after high school when we first met
We make out in your Mustang to Radiohead
And on my 18th Birthday
We got matching tattoos

Used to steal your parents’ liquor
And climb to the roof
Talk about our future
like we had a clue
Never plan that one day
I’d be losing you

And in another life
I would be your girl
We keep full of promises
Be us against the world

And in another life
I would make you stay
So I don’t have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away

I was June and you were my Johnny Cash
Never one we got the other we made a pact
Sometimes when I miss you
I put those records on

Someone said you had your tattoo removed
Saw you downtown singing the Blues
Its time to face the music
I’m no longer your muse

And in another life
I would be your girl
We keep full of promises
Be us against the world

And in another life
I would make you stay
So I don’t have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]
The one that got away

[Bridge:]
All these money can’t buy me a time machine (Nooooo)
Can’t replace you with a million rings (Nooooo)
I shoulda told you what you meant to me (Woooooow)
Cause now I pay the price

And in another life
I would be your girl
We keep full of promises
Be us against the world

And in another life
I would make you stay
So I don’t have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]

And in another life
I would make you stay
So I don’t have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away
