Kesha has recently released a new ballad called Praying and its received a lot of kudo for having such a powerful message. Im a long time Kesha fan, and her clever lyrics have always define her apart from other pop artists. She has given us amazing lines like, Feeling like a saber-tooth tiger, sipping on a warm Budweiser. I started looking into her lyrics a little more, and it turns out Kesha has already explained your entire 20 s. Heres every stage of your 20 s explained by Kesha lyrics.

Song : Tik Tok
Aint got a care in the world, but are plenty of brew. Aint got no fund in my pocket, but Im already here.
I dont think there are better lyrics out there to explain life in your early 20 s. At this stage of your 20 s, youre poor, but youve usually get just enough money to purchase that 30 pack of Keystone for Jasons house party coming up this weekend. You also havent got a care in the world at this age, as most of your scheduled life revolves around weekly drink specials, and trying to wake up for those seemingly early 10 am class schedules every Tuesday and Thursday. Luckily, at this age youre young enough not to get crushing hangovers so you are able to, Wake up in the morning impression like P Diddy.

Ballad: Your Love is My Drug
I’m looking down every alley. I’m making those desperate bellows. I’m staying up all night hoping, making my head against the wall and Won’t listen to any advice. Momma’s telling me I should think twice, better left to my own devices.
These are often big transition years in your 20 s. At 22 -2 3, youre most likely graduating college and starting a new job, or youve been in the same place long enough that youre seeming down different alleys of where to spend the next chapter of their own lives. Youll be making those desperate calls for job interviews, and youll be hitting your head against the wall after you is understood that procuring that perfect task is going to be much harder than you thought.
Its hard to take advice at this age, and your mothers will probably question many of your decisions, but in the end you are better off left to your own devices as nobody knows what you want to do with their own lives more than you. Now some advice is worth listening to and in hindsight trying to start that elevator repair business for that small town in South Dakota may have not been a great business investment, but hey, I was seem down different alleys.
Whether its taking a new job, or moving to a new city , now is the time to explore your passions and take chances. Just make sure you think them through yourself.
Ballad: Die Young
Young hearts, out our intellects, Runnin’ till we outta period, Wild children, lookin’ good, Livin’ hard just like we should.
At age 24, youre probably starting to feel a little out of your mind as adulthood starts to become more and more real. Youre still young enough to live hard on the weekends as a wild child, and youre still looking good just like you should. After all, youre in the prime of their own lives. Youre not too concerned about your current job situation yet because after all youre merely 24, and youve got your whole life ahead of you to decide the career path thats right for you. A 401 K still sounds like an imaginary grown-up word, and youre still living moment to moment like youre gonna die young.
We’re taking control. We get what we want, we do what you don’t. Dirt and glitter encompass the floor. We’re pretty and sick, we’re young and we’re bored.
This age finds people at a lot of different stages in “peoples lives”. The people putting in the time doing what others dont will find themselves closer to their dreams and aims at this phase if everything is all very well. Also at this phase, your life is in a constant balance of grime( hard work) and glitter( fun) and youre constantly teetering on how much period you should spend doing each one. Youre torn because youre still young, but you realize that youve got to take control in order to achieve your bigger goals. Other 25 year olds have settled into their career already and find satisfaction in being young and borne as long as it comes with health insurance.
Ages: 26 -2 7
Sung: We R Who We R
I’m so sick of being so serious, It’s stimulating my brain delirious
At this stage of your 20 s youve most likely been working on one thing for an extended period of time, whether its a undertaking, grad school, or putting together that piece of Ikea furniture you got when you were 24. Youll grow tired of being so serious all the time constantly are concerned about paying for rent, bills, and your food delivery service of selection. I may not make a lot of money, but Im not driving to pick up my food like a lowly peasant.
At this part of your 20 s, its important to get into a rhythm while staying out of a groove. So every once in a while you need to take some time to get out of the monotony of your usual schedule and follow the advice of the rest of the lyrics in the anthem by telling the D.J. to turning it up because, We’re dancing like we’re dum dum-dum dum-dum-dumb.
Let’s go for it just for tonight, C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon.
At 28 it becomes more and more difficult to find reasons for you to want to leave your home. You realize that most bars are too loud to talk to the people you go out to meet in the first place, and its difficult to find reasons to leave the consolation of your couch when there are infinite video streaming options available at your fingertips. A lot of people will try to convince you try and do things you dont genuinely want to do by saying, Cmon, lets go for it just for tonight. Much like the amount of Cmons in the lyrics, it takes about seven Cmons before everyone can convince you to do pretty much anything at 28.
If youre marriage, itll likely be your own spouse trying to convince you to do something that you dont want to do. Youll be talked into illogical undertakings like spending an entire Saturday sanding and staining an end table that your spouse found by the curb in order to sell it to Linda in accounts payable for $16.00. These types of chores will only cause you to become increasingly more aware of how finite your time on this earth is.
Pretty much the whole anthem but mainly- D-I-N-O-S–AU-R a dinosaur. D-I-N-O-S–AU-R a dinosaur, an O-L-D M–AN, you’re just an old man. Making on me what? You require a cat scan.
This ones pretty self-explanatory. Youre hanging on by a thread to your 20 s, and youre starting to feel the effects of your older age in small ways. Youll begin to feel like youre a little too old at a lot of bars that you used to frequent, and youll begin to opt the dimly lighted dive bars more and more. Also at this age, a lot of women begin to hear the internal tik tok of their biological clock, and 30 always seems to be a deadline they put upon themselves on when they want to try and start a family.
So enjoy your 20 s you fucking kids because theyll be gone before you know it especially if youre brushing your teeth with a bottle of Jack on the regular. I hope you find your peace by 30, and I hope youre somewhere praying to get through this rollercoaster of a decade.
