Love Into The Light

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Kesha opening up about her mistakes and flaws before she pledges in the chorus, "Maybe it's about time to let love back in the light. Maybe it's about the perfect place. Let go and forget about the hate."

    Speaking with MTV News, Kesha explained the track is, "a song that talks about how imperfections are what make life beautiful. Rather than try to cause divisions between people because of our differences and imperfections why don't we all let a little more love into the light. It's a subject that many people have written about, but I don't think it can be said enough."
  • Lyrically, this is one of several tracks on Warrior that reveal the vulnerable side of Kesha. She told Reuters: "I just wanted to make sure my entire personality was presented more accurately. I feel like people really got to know the super-wild side of me but then sometimes a more vulnerable side. I didn't really feel comfortable expressing it. So this time I kind of forced myself to express a little bit more vulnerability, less Auto-Tune, less vocal trickery. It's a little more raw."
  • Kesha co-wrote the track with Greg Kurstin, who also manned the boards. The Californian producer has accumulated quite a resume, having worked on such hits as Pink's "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" and Kelly Clarkson's "What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger)."
