Katy Perry: Roar Meaning

Song Released: 2013

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...

    When Katy was a kid she was bullied, and I think that in this song she is pretty much talking about how she has the wisdom to stand up to people now and let her voice be heard.

    as a kid, katy was bullied. She now has the bravery & courage to stand up for herself, & she will roar so her voice will be heard. She believes that herself & all others bullied are true champions

    Simply put, "Roar" is talking about standing up for yourself. We shouldn't stay quiet about things and hold in how we feel, we should roar, or stand up for ourselves and be heard. That way, we will be floating like a butterfly, being free.

    Not just bullying, but other situations that someone has held someone down and been mean. This is about the person who is stronger now and won't take it any more. Of course, this song isn't very original but I like the beat and I enjoy it.

    This song sucks. I have "the eye of the tiger" . Just about every line of this song has been said before. A crappy , unoriginal song with no beat.

    It is about the woman called Eve who viewed as a weakling in man's world because she likes to pretend and maintain quite. Mankind treated her as a property when the truth is she is that God. Eve saw that Satan was tricking Adam not to eat the fruit by pretending he is God so, Eve gave the fruit to Adam to eat so he can be God like her and to see the truth like the eye of the tiger. But Adam swore not to eat the fruit and he was condemned and thrown out of the garden. Eve was blamed because of that transgression so Eve went with Adam until Adam paid his death. Eve was the true Guardian of the tree of knowledge because she was also an Angel who likes to disguise like Satan. Satan despise her a lot because she likes the man called Adam. They've been fighting ever since that day and she roars like a lion when she found out Adam becomes a lawyer. She totally hates the lawyers because they are the deceiver of her own garden and turned her into nothing. That's is why mankind is being punish because they all turned against her because of the fruit of knowledge of good and evil called bible.

    I kind of think it could be about bullying, because she says "I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar!" And I think that's how a victim of bullying feels like!! We all are Champions!!
