Listen to and read the lyrics a few times and answer the questions in brackets below.

What does it all mean to you?

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting thought the wind
Wanting to start again

(HAVE YOU EVER HAD TO START ALL OVER AGAIN?)

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in

(WHAT HELPS YOU IN YOUR MOMENTS OF WEAKNESS)

Do you ever feel already buried deep
Six feet under scream
But no one seems to hear a thing

(WHY DO SOME PEOPLE FEEL EMOTIONALLY DEAD?)

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

(CAN YOU SPOT THE SPARK IN PEOPLE AROUND YOU THAT MAKES THEM SPECIAL?)

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on show ’em what your worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

(WHAT GIVES AN INDIVIDUAL THEIR WORTH IN THIS WORLD?)

Baby you’re a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
You’re gonna leave ’em fallin’ down down down

(HAVE YOU EVER AMAZED AND SURPRISED PEOPLE WITH YOUR ACTIONS?)

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

(WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR YOU? ARE YOU HOPEFUL?)

Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed
So you can 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

(WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS IN LIFE?)

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 ’em what your worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you’re a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
You’re gonna leave ’em fallin’ down down 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 your worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you’re a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
You’re gonna leave ’em fallin’ down down down
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

(WHAT QUALITIES MAKE YOU SPECIAL?)
