Kippenvel bij videoclip 'Praying' van Kesha

7 juli 2017 · Leestijd 3 min

Na vier jaar brengt Kesha weer een single uit. En wat voor eentje. Al haar twijfels, depressieve gevoelens en wanhoop worden eruit geschreeuwd. Kesha: "Voor mij is God geen bebaarde man boven de wolken, maar iemand die groter is dan mijzelf en vrede brengt. Daar gaat dit lied over: ik ben er eindelijk achter gekomen dat ik niet alles kan controleren." Wij kregen kippenvel van begin tot eind. Wat vind jij? (met dank aan Gerjanne Hoek voor de tip)

Lyrics: Am I dead? Or is this one of those dreams? Those horrible dreams that seem like they last forever? If I am alive, why? If there is a God or whatever, something, somewhere, why have I been abandoned by everyone and everything I've ever known? I've ever loved? Stranded. What is the lesson? What is the point? God, give me a sign, or I have to give up. I can't do this anymore. Please just let me die. Being alive hurts too much. 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

[Pre-Chorus]
'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 say this is I wish you farewell

[Chorus]
I hope you're somewhere praying, praying
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, praying

[Verse 2]
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
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 [Pre-Chorus]
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 say this is I wish you farewell [Chorus]
I hope you're somewhere praying, praying
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, praying

[Bridge]
Oh, sometimes, I pray for you at night
Someday, maybe you'll see the light
Oh, some say, in life, you're gonna get what you give
But some things only God can forgive [Chorus]
I hope you're somewhere praying, praying
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, praying
