"If We Ever Meet Again" lyrics
The jewel thief and art thief take note of each other when both are present at an art exhibit opening. The jewel thief steals a necklace, but caches it rather than trying to remove it from the premises. The jewel thief is later taken in by police for questioning about an art theft, but is released when the art thief secretly returns what she has stolen. As the jewel thief leaves the police station, the art thief is waiting for him outside, and the two join forces dressed in black clothes and masks to steal the original necklace and painting from the beginning of the video.

When Perry and McKee first met inthey both were "really into Lolita " and "had a mutual fascination with the adolescent state of mind. Perry wrote One of the Boyswhich touched on the early stages of discovering that boys could be more than friends, whereas McKee wrote " Confessions of a Teenage Girl ", which was about using sexual power to one's advantage. Perry at first wrote a lyric about Peter Panbut they later deemed it as "too young" since "we wanted it to have more edge, more sex.
There was a final version that was based around the metaphor of "trying me on" comparing clothes to sex, in a similar manner to Madonna 's single " Dress You Up ".
It was rejected by the producers, as McKee explained, "Luke always makes us 'Benny Proof' everything. He says that if Benny doesn't get it, America won't get it.
McKee said that "[We] looked at each other with dread, knowing we had to start all over again We were both so over it we just called it a night.
She explained, "I thought about my own adolescent years, my own first love. I thought about watching Baz Luhrmann 's ' Romeo and Juliet ' and putting on a little mini disco ball light and just dreaming of Leo.
It is a very descriptive word; it packs a lot of emotion and imagery into three syllables I couldn't believe after all of our agonizing over 'youth' themes, that we had overlooked such an obvious one — the teenage condition. McKee tried to approach Luke about her idea, but he was upset about the amount of time he had spent working in the chorus, so he banned them from changing it.
They started working on the verses, where Perry had already prepared most of the imagery. And also it kind of exudes this euphoric feeling because everybody remembers what their teenage dreams were — all the girls that were on your poster walls. The chorus was rewritten, and the line "Skin tight jeans" was taken from the early "trying me on" version. When the final version was finished, McKee said, "We were all so pumped that it had paid off.
I remember Max sitting back and saying 'I wish we could bottle this feeling'.

It was really magical. It's intense being in love and being a teenager. She added, "To me, this year is pretty heavy. I am going to be getting married and putting out this record, and there is so much going on that it's nice to think of those young dreams. According to James Montgomery of MTV, the lyrics refer to being in love, and about the feelings of commitment and security that it brings. He focused on two factors: At the same time, however, Perry begins singing the melody on that note, and returns to it frequently, even when it clashes with the dominant V chord as she sings "feel like I'm living a".
Her voice is the sun and the song is in orbit around it," he concludes. This contributes to the feeling of suspension that I mentioned above. As listeners, we're waiting for her to get to the point.** Katy Perry ** If We Ever Meet Again (Cover) Madilyn Bailey - Part C (No Maths)
Pallett than calls it "genius" that the chorus itself inverts the weighting of the verses, as the line "You make me feel like I'm living a teenage dream" goes from off beat to on and then back again, in a single line. The title of the song is rhythmically weighted two ways—it's like a flank attack.
