"Titanium" as written by Sia Furler, Nick L Wall Van De, Giorgio Tuinfort and David Guetta....
You shout it out
But I can't hear a word you say
I'm talking loud not saying much
I'm criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

I'm bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium

Cut me down
But it's you who has further to fall
Ghost town, haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I'm talking loud not saying much

I'm bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium, I am titanium

Stone-hard, machine gun
Firing at the ones who run
Stone-hard, thus bulletproof glass

You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
I am titanium

    My Interpretationit sounds like she is someone who is used to hitting rock bottom and has become emotionally strong and apathetic, so she has "nothing to lose". ironically, not being happy is why she can celebrate feeling almost invincible like titanium!

    General CommentI think it´s about a quarrel. But she says nothing what he says can affect her. Nothing is going to let her down."It´s you who´ll have further to fall", she has more to criticize him."Stone hard, machine gun, fired at the ones who run", probably she wants to finish the relationship.

    General Comment"Nothing is going to let her down", I was wrong there. No words are going to make her feel bad,that was what I wanted to express.

    My InterpretationYou can take this song literally too though, it doesn't actually have to have a deeper message about relationships in it.... -_-

    General CommentAfter the creation of "Elastic heart", coming back to this song,which is one of my favourites ever made, i 've come to the conclusion that Sia has identity issues. She has seperate "self-states".She herself admitted it and acknowledges it,which shows that she is really smart and self-understanding.She is so creative and unique that can use her "biggest weakness", to the "normal" world, and turn it it to her biggest asset and the baseline of the maintenance of her career.I find her art extremely smart and emotional at the same time. Considering this song,we see throughout the whole song the emerge of the "Protector" self coming to the aid of the emotionally unstable vulnerable "Host" self of hers absorbing all the abuse she is taking and managing to keep her in track with her life.As long as that state of hers is by her side,she "has nothing to lose" no matter how much anyone "fires away" on her and she feels like "Titanium". Again, this is another one of her songs enforced with a powerful meaning of hope and strength for everyone.She is really amazing.Any other thoughts?

    My InterpretationSia is one of my Favorite Singer and what a Strong Lyric this one is, It can be interpreted that it's about a quarrel with a person, where the singer wanna just show his/her strength that with the time I've grown strong, so all these hits can never bring me down.
    But my Interpretation is, a Singer writes a Song for bigger reasons (Especially Sia)
    I see this is a Quarrel (a form of Love and Rage) to God, after praying and doing good deeds, still getting hit by the life from everywhere, Dreams, Job, Friends, People ( Dangerous creature around), Rules, Expectations...at the end of the day after fighting with all of em', Looking in the sky Singer is singing this song to HIM, No matter how hard you'll hit, how many tests you'll take, and I'll stay Strong.
    Like the radiant Sun, I'll again wake up again as I'm tough like titanium, and I'll Roar towards the life, That "You Shoot me down, But I Won't Fall" as I'm Bulletproof. I know the basic truth that I have to fight my wars alone and I've nothing to lose, that's how I'll fight which makes me invisible warrior.

    Beautiful Song for filling Strength if you are feeling low.

    Love
    Mann
