BackgroundEdit

In a letter she penned, Kesha described "Praying" as being written about "that moment when the sun starts peeking through the darkest storm clouds, creating the most beautiful rainbow".

This song is about coming to feel empathy for someone else even if they hurt you or scare you. It's a song about learning to be proud of the person you are even during low moments when you feel alone. It's also about hoping everyone, even someone who hurt you, can heal.

LyricsEdit

[Music video intro]:
Am I dead or is this one of those dreams
Those horrible dreams
That seem like they last forever
If I am alive... why, why
If there's 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 and 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 prayin', prayin'
I hope your soul is changin', changin'
I hope you find your peace
Fallin' on your knees prayin'

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 prayin', prayin'
I hope your soul is changin', changin'
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees prayin'

Oh sometimes, I pray for you at night
Oh someday maybe you'll see the light
Oh some say in life you gonna get what you give
But some things only God can forgive

I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin'
I hope your soul is changin', changin'
I hope you find your peace
Fallin' on your knees prayin'
