Ke$ha on Wednesday. (PacificCoastNews.com)
"I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums" is the first lyric in the song, which was co-written by fun. lead singer Nate Ruess. "Oh what a shame that you came here with someone / So while you're here in my arms / Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young."
As for the theme of Warrior, her second album, the 25-year-old described it as "magic" in an interview with Ryan Seacrest. "I went on a spirit journey by myself. No security guard. No managers. I just went around the world and lived on a boat. I was in Africa rehabilitating baby lions. I went diving with great white sharks, and just went on this crazy spirit quest. I got hypnotized, and I just really wanted this record to be really positive, really raw, really vulnerable and about the magic of life."
She was also inspired by, well, the dead. The singer explains that another track called "Supernatural" came about after "I had a couple of experiences with the supernatural. I don't know his name! He was a ghost! I'm very open to it … There are so many weird topics on this record, from having sexy time with a ghost to getting hypnotized and going into past lives."
