Kesha's Fans Are Going Insane Over These Emotional Lyrics From Her ‘Rainbow' Album

RIP, you guys. Kesha has literally killed me. If there's anyone who I'd trust to write a eulogy at my funeral, it's her. Sorry, this got really dark, really fast, BUT I'M EMOTIONAL RIGHT NOW, OK? I just listened to Kesha's entire Rainbow album and now I want to cry, eat some ice cream, hold a baby, go to church. IDK, it's doing some sh*t to me. What I'm actually doing right now is trying to memorize Kesha's “Rainbow” lyrics because the title track is by far the most beautiful one from the album.

The song opens like this, just to give you a little preview:

I used to live in the darkness
Dress in black, act so heartless
But now I see that colors are everything
Got kaleidoscopes in my hairdo
Got back the stars in my eyes, too
Yeah, now I see the magic inside of me

I'M ALREADY DONE, YOU GUYS. I CAN'T DO THIS. This speaks to me so much because, uh, I wear black every single day and also used to/still currently live in darkness?! KESHA, I LOVE YOU.

She continues,

Yeah, maybe my head's f*cked up
But I'm falling right back in love with being alive
Dreaming in light, light, lights
This kitty cat lost her mind
Been lookin' for a star-sent sign that I'll be alright
Look to the skies

If I was 18 years old again, I'd 100 percent put these lyrics as the quote in my senior yearbook. “I'm falling right back in love with being alive.” I HAVE CHILLS.

Here's the chorus, if you can handle it:

I've found a rainbow, rainbow, baby
Trust me, I know, life is scary
But just put those colors on, girl
Come and play along with me tonight

It's not even 8 a.m. and I'm sobbing. Sorry, boss, I can't come into work today… I'm, uh, not feeling well?

Verse 2 goes like this:

I'd forgot how to daydream
So consumed with the wrong things
But in the dark, I realized this life is short
And deep down, I'm still a child
Playful eyes, wide and wild
I can't lose hope, what's left of my heart's still made of gold

AND THEN BRING IT BACK TO THE PRE-CHORUS/CHORUS:

And I know that I'm still f*cked up
But aren't we all, my love?
Darling, our scars make us who we are, are
So when the winds are howling strong
And you think you can't go on, hold tight, sweetheart

You'll find a rainbow, rainbow, baby
Trust me, I know life is scary
But just put those colors on, girl
Come and play along with me tonight
You gotta learn to let go, put the past behind you
Trust me, I know, the ghosts will try to find you
But just put those colors on, girl
Come and paint the world with me tonight
Night, night, night, night, night

ONE MORE TIME, Y'ALL, SING IT WITH ME:

I found a rainbow, rainbow, baby
Trust me, I know life is scary
But just put those colors on, girl
You gotta learn to let go, put the past behind you
Trust me, I know, the ghosts will try to find you
But just put those colors on, girl
Come and paint the world with me tonight
Oh, put those colors on, girl
Come and paint the world with me tonight
Come and paint the world with me tonight

I'm done, I can't, I'm dead. BTW, I'm not the only one losing my sh*t after hearing this. Twitter is virtually sobbing. Everyone is so freaking emotional.

I love you, Kesha. Thank you for the gift that is Rainbow. Can't wait to bawl my eyes out when I see you in concert this fall!
