I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums
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

We're gonna die young
We're gonna die young

Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young

[Beat break]

Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young

Young hearts, out our minds
Runnin like we outta time
Wild childs, lookin' good
Livin hard just like we should
Don't care whose watching when we tearing it up (You Know)
That magic that we got nobody can touch (For sure)

Looking for some trouble tonight
Take my hand, I'll show you the wild, side
Like it's the last night of our lives
We'll keep dancing till we die

I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums
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

We're gonna die young
We're gonna die young

Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young

[Beat break]

Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young

Young hunks, taking shots
Stripping down to dirty socks
Music up, gettin' hot
Kiss me, give me all you've got
It's pretty obvious that you've got a crush (you know)
That magic in your pants, it's making me blush (for sure)

Looking for some trouble tonight
Take my hand i'll show you the wild side
Like it's the last night of our lives
We'll keep dancing till we die

I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums
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

I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums
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

We're gonna die young
We're gonna die young

Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young

    General CommentThe first single from Ke$ha's sophomore album, Warrior, is a down-and-out dirty party anthem that was penned by the singer with Nate Ruess from Fun., Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco and Cirkut. Producer Blanco told Rolling Stone: "It's stomps and claps, and the chorus doesn't really have any drums in it, basically. The feeling is so good... And then the verse just pops in, and it's very unexpected and it pops into electronic. So it's rock, it's big electronic breaks and drums." The song premiered at radio and was made available at all digital providers on September 25, 2012.


    Ke$ha originally previewed the tune using a viral video clip featuring her bursting into song on the subway in Tokyo.


    Dr. Luke told MTV News about the writing of the tune. "This song was kind of one of the songs we were working with as we were doing the whole record," he said. "It wasn't like, 'OK, let's set out to do this.' We first had a different chorus on it, and it was pretty good. Then we did another one with Nate, and we liked the vibe of it better. I felt like what he brought to it, his world mixed in with production was an interesting sound, all the guitars and stuff. Ke$ha hadn't really done guitars before really in songs. On her last record it was a strict no-guitar rule."


    Regarding the song's meaning, Ke$ha told she told Carson Daly on 97.1 AMP Radio: "It's kind of an anthem. It's a celebration song, which I'm obviously known for writing those, but this one, the concept of it was to live each and every single day like it's your last and to always remain having a youthful spirit no matter how old I get."


    The song's music video has an apocalyptic theme: "Well it's about me being a cult leader at the end of the world," Ke$ha told UK radio station Capital FM. "And everybody else is kind of being scared and hiding. And we are running around like wild people, making out with each other and taking over a small border town in Mexico. And the federals are after us because we're so wild!"

    My InterpretationIt's about the singer flirting with someone who already have a date to a club. She justifies her actions with this exciting carefree attitude.

    General CommentLike a lot of Kesha's songs, it's a electronic party song that tells us to live each day like it's your last and just have a good time.
