If you're thinking the song sounds a little like a big ol' adios to her ex-husband Russell Brand, then you may be right! The lyrics are: "I wish I knew then what I know now/Wouldn't dive in, wouldn't bow down/Gravity hurts/You made it so sweet 'til I woke up on the concrete." Ouch!

According to Celebuzz, during a recent interview Katy talked about her personal songs and getting her feelings out there instead of keeping them bottled up inside. “Well, there were two songs that I had from "Teenage Dream" that I couldn’t put on, it was ‘Part of Me’ and ‘Dressing Up.’ And then I knew we were doing the re-release and so I was like, ‘I got to get in the studio,’ because I can’t wait eight months to be able to put out this feeling that I’m feeling right now, ’cause God knows it would take eight months to do another record. I couldn’t do it on the fly, to set up records it takes time.”
