Katy Perry - Pearl

She was a pyramid
But with him she's just a grain of sand
This love's too strong like mice and men
Squeezing out the life that should be let in

She was a hurricane-cane-cane-cane
But now she's just a gust of wind
She used to set the sails of a thousand ships
Was a force to be reckoned with

She could be a statue of liberty
She could be a Joan of Arc
But he's scared of the light that's inside of her
So he keeps her in the dark

Oh, she used to be a pearl... Ohh
Yeah, she used to rule the world... Ohh
Can't believe she's become a shell of herself
'Cause she used to be a pearl

She was unstoppable
Moved fast just like an avalanche
But now she's stuck deep in cement
Wishing that they'd never ever met

She could be a statue of liberty
She could be a Joan of Arc
But he's scared of the light that's inside of her
So he keeps her in the dark

Oh, she used to be a pearl... Ohh
Yeah, she used to rule the world... Ohh
Can't believe she's become a shell of herself
'Cause she used to be a -

Do you know that there's a way out,
There's a way out
There's a way out
There's a way out

You don't have to be held down,
Be held down
Be held down
Be held down

'Cause I used to be a shell
Yeah, I let him rule my world
My world, ohh, yeah

But I woke up and grew strong
And I can still go on
And no one can take my pearl

You don't have to be shell, No
You're the one that rules your world, ohh
You are strong and you'll learn
That you can still go on

And you'll always be a pearl

She is unstoppable

Perry penned this song with Christopher "Tricky" Stewart and producer Greg Wells. Having nearly completed Teenage Dream, she felt the record was missing something and the singer told MTV News that she thinks this tune completes her record in just the right way. "I did one more song with Greg Wells, and it was called 'Pearl,' " Perry explained. "And it was kind of just like, 'All right, now I have this crown, and I have all these jewels, and I can put these little jewels into the crown, and I feel like it's a complete presentation, something I'm really proud of.'"
