Pearl New Song 2011 By Katy Perry
Saturday, July 16, 2011

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

She was a hurricane
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 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
Ohhhh cant believe she’s become a shell of herself
Cause she used to be a pearl

She was unstoppable
Moved fast as like an avalanche
But now she’s stuck deep in some man
Wishing that they 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
Ohhhh 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 Ohhh 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 a 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


 


Song Meanings


I think it's about being in an abusive relationship. The woman used to be a pyramid, a hurricane, unstoppable, etc, but the relationship makes her a grain of sand, a gust of wind, etc. She's not the same person anymore, she's a shell. Basically it changed her from this strong, independent woman to a weak, vulnerable one.

My favorite part is when Katy sings about how she used to be a shell, but she turned herself back into a pearl. And the very last lyric "she is unstoppable", gives hope that the woman in this song left the abusive man and turned back into a pearl

And, this song is about losing yourself in a relationship. "She is a pyramid, but with him she's just a grain of sand". Normally she is strong willed and independent but within the relationship she's lost a part of herself and is just a shadow of what she used to be . I especially like the part "Yeah I used to be a shell, I let him rule my world", especially because I was in a situation similar to this..I relied all my happiness on him and essentially let him rule my world even though he didn't treat me very well. We aren't together anymore, and I'm slowly getting my pearl back, and I feel great and better off without him. Realize your self-worth, and the fact that YOU rule your world and your happiness!
