Birds beware, expect me up there
Jets should hide, I'll fly alongside

I've been just explosive since you lit me
I've been shooting off sparks
And I'm feeling in love
I'm a rocket from a bottle shot free
I've been up in the clouds

Can't stop grins from going wide today
I feel strong like the tide today
