Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Mmm, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (J-J-J-J.R)
I'm feeling like a star, you can't stop my shine
I'm loving cloud nine, my head's in the sky
I'm solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, solo

Yeah, I'm feeling good tonight, finally doing me and it feels so alright, oh
Time to do the things I like, going to the club everything's alright, oh
No one to answer to
No one that's gonna argue, no
And since I got the hold off me
I'm living life now that I'm free, yeah

Told me to get my together, now I got my together, yeah
Now I made it through the weather, better days are gonna get better
I'm so sorry that it didn't work out
I'm moving on
I'm so sorry but it's over now
The pain is gone

I'm putting on my shades to cover up my eyes
I'm jumping in my ride, I'm heading out tonight
I'm solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, solo
I'm feeling like a star, you can't stop my shine
I'm loving cloud nine, my head's in the sky
I'm solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, solo (yeah)

Now I'm feeling how I should, never knew single could feel this good, oh (this good)
Star player, misunderstood, back in the game, who knew I would, oh (I would)
So fly how I spread my wings, loving myself makes me wanna sing, oh (sing)
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (oh)

Told me to get my together, now I got my together, yeah (yeah)
Now I made it through the weather better days are gon' get better
I'm so sorry (sorry) that it didn't work out
I'm moving on
I'm so sorry (sorry) but it's over now
The pain is gone

I'm putting on my shades to cover up my eyes (my eyes)
I'm jumping in my ride, I'm heading out tonight
I'm solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, solo

I'm feeling like a star, you can't stop my shine
I'm loving cloud nine, my head's in the sky
I'm solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, solo

Riding solo, solo,
I'm riding solo, yeah (solo, solo, solo)
It's like
S-O-L-O (O)
S-O-L-O (O, L, O)
S-O-L-O (O, O)
I'm living my life ain't got stress no more

I'm putting on my shades to cover up my eyes (oh, yeah)
I'm jumping in my ride, I'm heading out tonight
I'm solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, I'm riding solo, solo

I'm feeling like a star, you can't stop my shine (oh, oh)
I'm loving cloud nine, my head's in the sky

I'm solo,
I'm Han Solo,
Or Han Yolo,
You'll never know though (know though)

It's one or the other,
Or maybe my brother,
I can't say for sure,
There's too much damn lore,

I'm solo,
He's Han Yolo,
We like Derulo,
But no homo (homo)...
