Intro: Ab Bbm Fm Db

Verse:
Ab                Bbm  
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, 
Fm                         Db
drifting through the wind 
                       Ab
wanting to start again? 
                  Bbm                Fm  
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin 
                     Db
like a house of cards,
                        Ab 
one blow from caving in? 
                 Bbm                   Fm
Do you ever feel already buried deep? 
                          Db                            Ab
6 feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing 
                          Bbm                   Fm
Do you know that there's still a chance for you 
                              Db
'Cause there's a spark in you 

Pre-Chorus:
                Ab          Bbm          Fm     Db 
You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine 
     Ab       Bbm             Fm        Db
Just own the night like the 4th of July 

Chorus:
                      Ab    Bbm
'Cause baby you're a firework
                   Fm           Db
Come on, show 'em what you're worth 
             Ab          Bbm
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Fm    Db
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 
               Ab    Bbm
Baby, you're a firework 
                   Fm     Db
Come on, let your colors burst 
             Ab        Bbm
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Fm              Db
You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own 


Verse -same chords as first Verse-:

You don't have to feel like a waste of space 
You're original, cannot be replaced 
If you only knew what the future holds 
After a hurricane comes a rainbow 

Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed 
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road 
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow 
And when it's time, you'll know 

Pre-Chorus:
                Ab          Bbm          Fm     Db 
You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine 
     Ab       Bbm             Fm        Db
Just own the night like the 4th of July 

Chorus:
                      Ab    Bbm
'Cause baby you're a firework
                   Fm           Db
Come on, show 'em what you're worth 
             Ab          Bbm
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Fm    Db
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 
               Ab    Bbm
Baby, you're a firework 
                   Fm     Db
Come on, let your colors burst 
             Ab        Bbm
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Fm              Db
You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own 

Bridge:
Ab               Bbm
Boom, boom, boom       
                       Fm           Db
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon 
                           Ab           Bbm 
It's always been inside of you, you, you 
                            Fm             Db
And now it's time to let it through-ough-ough 

Chorus:
                      Ab    Bbm
'Cause baby you're a firework
                   Fm           Db
Come on, show 'em what you're worth 
             Ab          Bbm
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Fm    Db
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 
               Ab    Bbm
Baby, you're a firework 
                   Fm     Db
Come on, let your colors burst 
             Ab        Bbm
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Fm              Db
You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own 

Outro: 
Ab               Bbm
Boom, boom, boom 
                       Fm              Db
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon 
Ab               Bbm
Boom, boom, boom 
                        Fm             Db
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

    Hey, just a tip for if you don’t want to keep scrolling and trying to play and sing all at once (okay maybe I’m the only one with this problem and I’m just posting this for myself), you can just play G, Am, Em, C over and over again and it works for the whole song, including the bridge!
    Anyway, never forget that you’re beautiful, and there’s always someone who needs you and is inspired by you, wether you know it or not! Have a sparkling day, you incredible human being.
