Kesha - Praying (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
    '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

          My family barely ever asks if I'm okay. I'm not okay but I always just say "I'm fine". My friend never has time to talk to me. My papa is dead. We have no money. I've given up all hope.

                When Kesha released this song, I couldn't bear to listen to it because I was in the midst of an abusive relationship. It's been two days since my abuser has been out of my life and this song radiates through my whole body. So much emotion, so much pain, and so much rebuilding to do. Hoping that I'll find my strength, and as weird as it is, I hope that douche bag is somewhere praying. And I hope his soul is changing.

                                    And also for those sexual abusers, rapists,and ect...I hate to admit it but I guess I have to pray for them too;every human makes a really big,terrible mistakes; God can truly forgive your wrong doings,but can also punish you...even if he never wanted too. but most of the wrong doings comes from the demon. And in every wrong doings these people have made ended up in jail.i pray there souls may change,but mostly I pray their hands are locked away from any young woman,men, girls,boys...I mean let's be real there are ladies who also sexual abuse too...

                                      No matter how many times I've been broken down by a guy doesn't mean I ain't gonna be praying for them;but I am gonna wish for them to do the same too; which would never happen 😔😔😔

                                          The song is good. Except my parents and I don’t like the H-word, but I guess it’s okay in this song. Not sure if it’s considered profanity or cussing, but we as kids were never allowed to use that word except in church.

                                              I understand this song as her freeing herself from her abuser and knowing that she is finally her own person again she is telling him she doesnt forgive him, cause she doesnt have to, maybe god will that she hopes he changes him and cleans his soul, cause what the abuser did is not something someone sane does, when she says "i hope you find your peace, falling on your knees" is so powerfull, she is acknowleding that he hurst her because he was so wrong and the only think she can expect is for him to maybe change one day, she is being the bigger person and that is such a fucking huge acomplishment

                                                              My sister was physically and verbally sexually assaulted by a guy in her school. She was too scared to tell anyone, including my parents. I could tell something was wrong by the way she tensed up whenever she was by the guy at school. My friend, the guy she used to like before she starting dating her now ex boyfriend, found out. She tried denying, but we could tell she was lying. She finally mustered up courage to admit it. Her boyfriend did nothing except for blaming it on her. My friend confronted her assaulter and ended up going to the office as did I, for fighting him. In the end, my sister broke up with her ex, and her assaulter never stepped foot to her... not that I know of at least...

But the only way to be able to move on. Is to forgive that person. No matter how much we hate that person to the core. I pray everyday for my rapist to get locked up. And to the others that got away with it. But one day I will move on. The one thing I have to do is to forgive that person, that took everything from me.
