This self-empowerment song describes a deteriorated relationship with a man Perry can't understand. She pounds her chest and rises stronger over tribal beats and marching band drums. Perry wrote the song with her longtime collaborator, the Canadian producer Greg Wells, along with the Boston Folk-Rock singer-songwriter Jonatha Brooke. "That was so much fun," Brooke told Radio.com of her writing collaboration with Perry. "I had gotten word from friends over the years that she kept mentioning me in interviews as an influence and I thought, 'Well, that's wicked cool. How sweet is that?' I'm a huge Katy Perry fan. Finally a mutual friend at ASCAP hooked us up." "We spent three days in the studio [and] that was the first song we wrote," Brooke continued. "I brought this kalimba, which is a tiny wooden thumb piano. I thought, 'I'm going to go meet Katy Perry, what can I bring that's a little unusual and would be fun for the session?'" Brooke started jamming on the kalimba, which kicked off the writing session. "Greg heard the kalimba rhythmic thing and started building this really deep track around it and it just inspired all of us," she said. "It was like we were finishing each other's sentences in the room. When that happens you're pretty psyched. Once in a while it's like bad dating. Sometimes something happens and you're like, 'Oh God, when will this be over?' Luckily we were all inspired by each other." "The song materialized and was pretty fun and immediate," she added. "I'm psyched my kalimba is still a very big part of the track." "The main way it changed from our initial demo is that Katy added awesome unbelievable vocals, especially at the end," Brooke continued. "She started stacking vocals. I'm just a fan of that. That was very, very exciting. And that it made it on the record at all was cool."

Choose Your Battles - Katy Perry

You are my heart locker lover
Keep me walking on a wire
Don't no, when you blow
So I tip toe through your triggered mine
You fight me but I'm on your side
Defeated, not retreated

Why you trying to make me your enemy
All I really need is a little peace
I just wanna be your lover
Oh, this is not a competition
So baby why the ammunition
I don't wanna be the last one standing

Choose your battles, babe
Then you win the war
Stop digging your own crave
Within, so much to live for

Choose your battles, babe
Cause I'm not fighting anymore
I am not fighting anymore

I try to pick off your red flags
But dancing up on broken glass
Your mind games hit like glue names
Your course just like the Kennedys
But you somehow get me on my knees, defeated
Not retreated

Why you trying to make me your enemy
All I really need is a little peace
I just wanna be your lover
Oh, this is not a competition
So baby why the ammunition
I don't wanna be the last one standing

Choose your battles, babe
Then you win the war
Stop digging your own crave
Within, so much to live for

Choose your battles, babe
Cause I'm not fighting anymore
I am not fighting anymore

If you wanna go, then go
If you wanna stay then stay
Cause I don't wanna fight no more, baby
I am not fighting anymore
If you wanna go, then go
If you wanna stay then stay
I don't wanna fight no more
Anyway, I am not fighting anymore

If you wanna go, then go
If you wanna stay then stay
Cause I don't wanna fight no more, baby

(Stop digging your own crave
Within, so much to live for)

Choose your battles, babe
Cause I'm not fighting anymore
I am not fighting anymore

Anyway, I am not fighting anymore

If you wanna go, then go
If you wanna stay then stay

Cause I don't wanna fight no more, baby
