Kesha's "Rainbow" Lyrics Are So Beautiful & Fans Can't Stop Listening

By

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!
