Pendulum
Katy Perry Lyrics


You got patina, ain't so green, nah
You earned the spot, got your receipts, yeah
Funny, gotta add addendums to your dreams
Still, you never sleep, no, you never sleep, ah
Oh, you learn to dance, to bob and weave, yeah
To let that water roll off easy, yeah
You grew yourself above the weeds, taller than the trees, oh, so

Don't try and reinvent your wheel
'Cause you're too original
Baby, just stay classic
Ain't broke, ain't broke, don't fix it
Your highs, your lows, just ride it

It's a pendulum, it all comes back around
It's a pendulum, it's a pendulum
Life's a pendulum, it all comes back around
It's a pendulum, it all comes back, it all comes back

So just take those punches on the chin, yeah
Don't fight the changes in the wind, no no
'Cause you'll find your way home, oh
If you find a way to let go
Just let go

Don't try and reinvent your wheel (your wheel)
'Cause you're too original (original)
Baby, just stay classic
Ain't broke, ain't broke, don't fix it
Your highs, your lows, just ride it

It's a pendulum, it all comes back around (pendulum)
It's a pendulum, it's a pendulum (all comes back around)
Life's a pendulum, it all comes back around (pendulum)
It's a pendulum, it all comes back, it all comes back around

And there is no need to worry
The pages keep on turning
And it goes on and on, goes all the way around
And there is no need to hurry
There's a fire burnin'
'Cause it goes on and on, goes all the way around
All the way around
Hey, around
(All) all the way around (c'mon)
Ain't broke, ain't broke, don't fix it
Your highs, your lows, just ride it

It's a pendulum, it all comes back around (pendulum)
It's a pendulum, it's a pendulum
Life's a pendulum, it all comes back around, hey
It's a pendulum, it all comes back, it all comes back
It's a pendulum, it all comes back around (pendulum)
It's a pendulum, it's a pendulum (all comes back around)
Life's a pendulum, it all comes back around (pendulum)
It's a pendulum, it all comes back, it all comes back

It's a pendulum (all comes back around), it's a pendulum
Life's a pendulum, it'll all come back around (pendulum)
It's a pendulum, it all comes back, it all comes back

i don't know what was wrong with the people, Witness is by far Katys best album. It has much more substance than Teenage Dream yet it delivers bops. It's not as lame prodcued as PRISM and is more diverse in its sound. It brings a fresh wind just like One Of The Boys, she goes back to her christian music roots..I don't get how this hasn't a 60+/100 rating at least.

Nice joke

I never liked any of her music until I heard Chained and then listed to De Javu and Witness and Roulette and I was hooked. She recruited me with this album.

"Witness" is DEFINITELY Katy's BEST ALBUM!!!

YORAS SANJALEE

Honestly I think her team is sleeping on this song. It has a powerful chorus, strong vocals, strong instrumentation as well as production. - With a great music video and the right promotion, Pendulum could have been the "Roar" of this era, as in it would have been loved by the general public because of its catchy tune and empowering, anthemic lyrics.

What ate you even talking about? This is about me. Almost all her songs are. Slipping? Are you sure your not slipping?🥰

@Good For Nutting Roulette could've gone #1 if it was a single

Good For Nutting

I don't agree. change to the rhythm is so much better than this, but I also don't think any of her new songs will reach Roar. Not even close!
