Applause Lyrics

[Verse 1:]
I stand here waiting for you to bang the gong
To crash the critic saying, "Is it right or is it wrong?"
If only fame had an I.V., baby could I bear
Being away from you, I found the vein, put it in here

I live for the applause,...

    ******I stand here waiting for you to bang the gong
    To crash the critic saying, "Is it right or is it wrong?"
    If only fame had an I.V, baby could I bear?
    Being away from you, I found the vein, put it in here*****-----this is like a story sort of song, gaga says she waits for he sound of gong to start this rollercoster life where ultimately she is waiting for applause,her art confuses ritics or people and thy begin thinking is this right or wrong, iv is how you drip something in body so if fame is like iv can she bare it? can she bare the pain of it? but she found the vein and but the iv there------*****I live for the applause, applause, applause
    I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause
    Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me
    The applause, applause, applause
    Give me that thing that I love (I'll turn the lights out)
    Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
    Give me that thing that I love (I'll turn the lights out)
    Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
    Make it real loud
    Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
    (A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E) Make it real loud
    Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch*****-----she lives for applause{whole stanza stresses on this}-----*****I've overheard your theory, "Nostalgia's for geeks"
    I guess sir, if you say so, some of us just like to read
    One second I'm a Koons fan, suddenly the Koons is me
    Pop culture was in art, now art's in pop culture, in me
    I live for the applause, applause, applause
    I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause
    Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me
    The applause, applause, applause*****-----she overheard your theories or what u hd tosay about her butsome like to read or know what they said, shes lik a koon which means a crazy friend u can rely on, pop was in art but now art and pop both are within her and again she loves the applause----
    I FUCKING LOVE GAGA....
    GAGA FOREVER!!!!
    PAWS UP!

    This song was her comeback song. She was off the charts for quite awhile with an injury. But the song is about her doing what she loves making people happy and hearing them applaud her. Shes singing about how she loves performing and how she lives for it. Great song by a great artist

    I think this song is about trying to seek the approval of everyone. Its about doing things that at least most people agree with and "applaud".

    "Applause" is a song by American recording artist Lady Gaga, from her upcoming third studio album, Artpop (2013). Written and produced by Lady Gaga and DJ White Shadow, the song was released on August 12, 2013 by Interscope Records as the album's lead single.[1][2] Originally intended for a release through mainstream and rhythmic airplay on August 19, 2013, it was rush-released a week earlier after two snippets of the song were leaked online on August 10.[3][4] Details of the song were revealed throughout 2013 as Gaga tweeted its lyrics in early 2013. Written while touring for her Born This Way Ball, "Applause" almost missed inclusion on Artpop, let alone serving as a single.
