Circle the Drain (4:32)

Cover of Teenage Dream

From Teenage Dream and 6 other releases

Katy Perry (from Q magazine September 2010): “‘Circle The Drain’ is about having a boyfriend self-destructing. I have to tell him, ‘I’m not your f—-ing mother! All of the songs are from my diary but what I was really talking about is that ‘Mother Syndrome’ women have, thinking that we’ll be the one to save the person we love, and that’s why we stay with them even while they’re circling the drain. And at some point it’s time to flush or time to s—t and take care of yourself.”
