what does the song roar by katy perry mean?

"Roar"

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 everything

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Already brushing off the dust

You hear my voice, you hear that sound

Like thunder gonna shake the ground

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Get ready 'cause I’ve had enough

I see it all, I see it now

[Chorus]

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire

'Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar

Louder, louder than a lion

'Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You’re gonna hear me roar

Now I’m floating like a butterfly

Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes

I went from zero, to my own hero

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Already brushing off the dust

You hear my voice, you hear that sound

Like thunder gonna shake the ground

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough

I see it all, I see it now

[Chorus]

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire

‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar

Louder, louder than a lion

‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You’re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You'll hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You're gonna hear me roar...

Ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire

‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar

Louder, louder than a lion

‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You’re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You'll hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You're gonna hear me roar...

those are the lyrics^^

    Katy Perry has explained her powerful new song in an exclusive interview with UK radio station Capital FM.

    "I'm excited, as I said, I'm excited to let the cat out of the bag, that's like my go-to statement these days!" she told the radio host just moments before they played her new tune Roar for the first time.

    "'Roar' is a song about being able to finally speak up for yourself.”

    "Strangely enough, as much as I'm so loud and proud about my music, sometimes in other aspects of my life I became very introverted and didn't feel like I could say what I meant, and I got to a boiling point and it would just boil over a little bit.

    "So 'Roar' was a song I wrote about really standing up for myself, finally, and hopefully people are going to adopt that same message," Katy explained, before promising: "I'm bringing my A-game I'll tell you that."

    She will probably write a lot of mean songs about Russell Brand. She said it will be darker and edgier than her other work. So I expect a lot of it will be from that relationship fallout. And he's been saying mean things about her too lately... trouble is that she's attracted to 'bad boys' lol and thinks she can change them and reform them. That doesn't work, and I think she's beginning to realize that you just have to stand up for yourself. She's a strong lady, she'll survive.

    Love this song, and with my upcoming divorce, it means, to me, that she got fed up and finally stood up, spoke up and did what she needed to do.

    I know I am
