David Guetta – Titanium Lyrics | Titan Lyrics.com

[Sia:]
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
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

Cut me down
But it’s you who’ll have further to fall
Ghost town and 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
I am titanium

Stone-heart, machine gun
Firing at the ones who run
Stone heart loves 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

Song Facts: Guetta told Artist Direct about this track: “That song is interesting because it’s different from anything else on the album. All of the guests on the album are from pop and R&B, and ‘Titanium’ is a little bit like a UFO flying over it all because Sia is a more of an indie artist. I think she’s the only white girl on the record [Laughs]. I fell in love with the song. At first, she wrote that song and demoed it. She wanted to give it to another artist, but I felt her voice is so incredible and the song is so emotional that I really wanted her to stay on it. The song also uses some acoustic elements which is very different from what I usually do. I think it makes it very interesting.”
Sia recorded a demo guide vocal, which she sent first of all to Katy Perry, but the California Gurls singer turned it down saying she didn’t want to work with Guetta. After trying several other artists, Mary J. Blige finally recorded the song, but her version leaked online in July 2011, so Guetta decided to stick with Sia’s original version. He explained in an interview with News.com.au: “The first time I heard what Sia did, because she was not in the studio with me, I fell in love with it… I didn’t even want to give it to anyone else; it was perfect the way it was. It’s not only about how big you are in America, it’s about the song and the voice.”
The song was Guetta’s fifth #1 single in the UK, his fourth as lead artist. However, it was Sia’s first ever visit to the top spot, 12 years after she first made her British chart debut with the #10 peaking “Taken For Granted.”
