Praying - Kesha

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

'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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Interpretation of Praying

The single Praying from Kesha deals with the relationship between two persons: one (presumed female) main person, who is told by a second (presumably male) person, she is nothing without him. The song is about the detachment from this dependency. In this way, the main person was strengthened on the one hand because she had overcome the pain and the "hell" inflicted by a mysterious person. On the other hand, the main person is not looking for revenge. Although she has gained personal strength, she does not want anyone to be hurt, and she tells this other person that she hopes he will find his own "peace".

In the refrain, Kesha sings that she hopes he is "somewhere praying" that his "soul is changing" and he becomes a better person. She starts to hope again and assumes that her future life will be better than her past life.

After a period of oppression by another person who has now been overcome, the main person now draws unimagined strength.
