Daisies - Katy Perry

The Experience: Why can't it be me? Daring to dream...
The Vibe: Strength. Love.
The Topic: Dreams. Hope.
The Value: Perseverance.
The Tension: Took those sticks and stones (hardship) VS. Showed 'em I could build a house (achievement).



Music video: Daisies' simple visuals underline a few key gestures. Katy Perry is dressed in white, linking Daisies' pregnancy back to Never Worn White's hard-won "I do" to true love. The brief non-graphic nudity is an effort to showcase maternity - the small town one in seven billion long-shot and Hail Mary dream Katy Perry is cherishing. It's that motherhood that lends truth to Katy Perry's nightgown flapping in the wind heroine pose: dreaming and fighting for someone else is what makes a hero.

The Meaning of Daisies: Dreams are expensive. They can cost you respect: told them your dreams and they all started laughing. They can cost you friends: they tried to count me out. They can also cost you your life if your brave enough to persevere: I'll never let them change me till they cover me in daises is a twist on the euphemism "pushing up daisies". What keeps you going? The hope that it actually happens. And the fact that your dreams aren't just yours. Katy Perry isn't dreaming just for herself. There's sacrifice and selfless love in this song. She's dreaming for someone else: told them your dreams.

Ask yourself: Who do you dream for? And how much are you willing to sacrifice for that dream?

LYRICS:


Told them your dreams and they all started laughing
I guess you're out of your mind till it actually happens

I'm the small town
One in seven billion
Why can't it be me?

They told me I was out there
Tried to knock me down
Took those sticks and stones
Showed 'em I could build a house
They tell me that I'm crazy
But I'll never let 'em change me
Till they cover me in daisies
Daisies, daisies

They said I'm going nowhere
Tried to count me out
Took those sticks and stones
Showed 'em I could build a house
They tell me that I'm crazy
But I'll never let 'em change me
Till they cover me in daisies
Daisies, daisies

When did we all stop believing in magic?
Why did we put all our hopes in a box in the attic?

I'm the long-shot
I'm the Hail Mary
Why can't it be me?

They told me I was out there
Tried to knock me down (Knock me down)
Took those sticks and stones
Showed 'em I could build a house
They tell me that I'm crazy
But I'll never let 'em change me
Till they cover me in daisies
Daisies, daisies

They said I'm going nowhere
Tried to count me out
Took those sticks and stones
Showed 'em I could build a house
They tell me that I'm crazy
But I'll never let 'em change me
Till they cover me in daisies
Daisies, daisies

Yeah
Yeah-eh-eh-eh, eh-eh-eh, eh-eh-eh (Cover me in daisies)
Yeah
Yeah-eh-eh-eh, eh-eh-eh, eh-eh-eh

I'm the small town
One in seven billion
Why can't it be me?

They told me I was out there
Tried to knock me down
Took those sticks and stones
Showed 'em I could build a house
They tell me that I'm crazy
But I'll never let 'em change me
Till they cover me in daisies
Daisies, daisies

They said I'm going nowhere
Tried to count me out (Count me out)
Took those sticks and stones
Showed 'em I could build a house
They tell me that I'm crazy
But I'll never let 'em change me
Till they cover me in daisies
Daisies, daisies
