    G                         Am

       Do you ever feel       like a plastic bag

    Em                                     C

         Drifting through the wind    Wanting to start again

    G                           Am

        Do you ever feel,       feel so paper thin

    Em                              C

        Like a house of cards    One blow from caving in

     

    G                           Am

       Do you ever feel         already buried deep

    Em                                      C

       Six feet under scream  but no one seems to hear a thing

    G                                     Am

       Do you know that there's      still a chance for you

    Em                                         C

        Cause there's a spark in you     You just gotta

     

    Pre-Chorus:

        G                Am

    Ignite the light

           Em         C

    And let it shine

          G            Am

    Just own the night

                  Em             C

    Like the Fourth of July  ‘Cause baby you're a

     

    Chorus:

     G          Am 

    Firework      Come on show 'em

         Em          C

    what you’re worth   Make 'em go

     G               Am

    "Oh, oh, oh!"     As you shoot across the

    Em       C

    sky-y-y   Baby you're a

     G     Am 

    firework   Come on let your

     Em     C

    colors burst   Make 'em go

     G            Am

    "Oh, oh, oh!"  You're gonna leave 'em fallin'

     Em                C

    down-own-own

     

    G                                    Am

         You don't have to feel        like a waste of space

    Em                    C

        You're original   cannot be replaced

    G                          Am

        If you only knew     what the future holds

    Em                         C

        After a hurricane     comes a rainbow

     

    G                                    Am     

       Maybe your reason why     all the doors are closed

    Em                                      C

        So you can open one that leads you to the perfect road

    G                            Am

       Like a lightning bolt   your heart will blow

    Em                                           C

       And when it's time, you'll know  You just gotta

    Outro:

     G                          Am     

    Boom, boom, boom,     even brighter than the

       Em                       C

    moon, moon, moon. 

    G                          Am
