2017: Praying – Kesha

Anni passati a difendersi – la corte suprema di Manhattan ha negato a Kesha la possibilità di scogliere il contratto con la Sony e Dr. Luke – e dopo 5 lunghi anni dal precedente Warrior, torna a farsi sentire la cantautrice statunitense. 

Kesha ha infatti annunciato il suo nuovo disco intitolato Rainbow, pubblicato l’11 agosto da RCA Records e Kemosabe.

Nel nuovo long playing compaiono delle guest “appetitose” come gli Eagles Of Death Metal (la band di Josh Homme e Jesse Hughes) e Dolly Parton. Sostiene il progetto il singolo, Praying, scritta assieme a Ryan Lewis. 

Praying parla di sentire empatia per qualcun altro… una canzone che insegna ad essere orgogliosi della persona che sei, anche nei momenti più difficili della tua vita. 

Lyrics

Well, you almost had me fooled
Told me that I was nothing without you
Oh, but after everything you’ve done
I can thank you for how strong I have become.(praying)

‘Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just this is I wish you farewell.

I hope you’re somewhere praying, prayiiing
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayiiing.

I’m proud of who I am
No more monsters, I can breathe again
And you said that I was done
Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come
‘Cause I can make it on my own versuri-lyrics.info
And I don’t need you, I found a strength I’ve never known
I’ve been thrown out, I’ve been burned
When I’m finished, they won’t even know your name.

You brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just this is I wish you farewell.

I hope you’re somewhere praying, prayiiing
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, praying.

Ohhh, sometimes, I pray for you at night
Someday, maybe you’ll see the light
Oh, sometime, in life, you’re gonna get what you give
But some things, only God can forgive.

I hope you’re somewhere praying, prayiiing
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayinggg.
