"Bigger Than Me" is the title of a song by Katy Perry from the album, Witness. The song was written by Katy Perry, Sarah Hudson, Oscar Holter, and Corin Roddick and Megan James of the electronic group, Purity Ring.

Background and inspiration

Perry confirmed the song title during an exclusive with Entertainment Weekly where she revealed it was inspired by the results of the election. She was a huge supporter and advocate of Hillary Clinton at the time.[1] "I have a song on the record called “Bigger Than Me,” and I think the song talks about Hillary and the election and something is happening that’s bigger than her. Yes, maybe at that moment she lost. But that might have been a battle, and we’re [now] looking at a war here. I think you have to think about long-term. I think [the election] woke up a sleeping giant that is now getting its strength back and breathing and about to just slay!", Perry told Entertainment Weekly about the song.[2]

Lyrics

Can't go with the flow, got to make waves
Even though I look at the sand, and I'm just one grain
But my intuition says there's a bigger mission I must embrace
So I'm, I'm pushing my thoughts to a new place

I'm kicking and screaming
'Cause it won't be easy
To break all the patterns
If I'm not evolving
I'm just another robot
Taking up oxygen

(Chorus)
It's something bigger than me
I can feel it beginning
Something bigger than me
Yeah, I can feel it opening
Tried to ignore it
But it keeps on growing
Out of control
It's something bigger than me
And I can feel it happening

So I'll speak my truth though my voice shakes (I must)
Try to summon the strength to look fear in the face

But I'm kicking and screaming
'Cause it won't be easy
To break all the patterns
If I'm not evolving
I'm just another robot
Taking up oxygen

(Chorus)
It's something bigger than me
I can feel it beginning
Something bigger than me
Yeah, I can feel it opening
Tried to ignore it
But it keeps on growing
Out of control
It's something bigger than me
And I can feel it happening

(Chorus)
It's something bigger than me
Something bigger than me
Yeah, I can feel it opening
Tried to ignore it
But it keeps on growing
Out of control
It's something bigger than me
And I can feel it happening

(Happening)
I can feel it (happening)
I can feel it (happening)
I can feel it (happening)
(I can feel it)
