Avril Lavigne Shares Powerful Story Behind “Head Above Water”

Published

on

Singer Avril Lavigne opens up about her battle with Lyme disease in a new interview with Uproxx. Avril reveals that at one point she accepted that she was going to die and at that moment song lyrics came flooding into her mind.

The song would ultimately become what we know now as “Head Above Water” Avril Lavigne’s powerful inspirational anthem that helped launch her comeback in recent months. The singer says she grabbed her iPhone and began writing the lyrics down in her Notes app as they came to her.

The song which is the title track off Avril’s latest album released this month is a prayer to God to help her stay strong during the battle she was facing. Avril Lavigne says that writing new songs was part of the recovery process.

Avril reveals in the interview that when she went into the studio to record the song “Head Above Water” she didn’t know what her voice would be like. She didn’t know if she had lost her voice or if it would be weak.

Avril reveals that as she began singing the lyrics to the powerful anthem her body began to feel warm and she was fighting back tears. She decided to keep that take as the one we hear today saying that it was important to show vulnerability in her vocal. At one point you can hear her voice crack as she’s singing the first verse.

The video has only been available for less than an hour and its already reached up to 8 million views on YouTube with the numbers still climbing.

In the beginning, we see Avril in a dark Cave holding a lantern while daunting a beautiful white dress. She eventually makes her way out of the cave and runs through a stunning scenery of hillsides and water.

At one point in the video, Lavigne is submerged under water and appears to be drowning while different colors flash creating a visual that is truly breathtaking.

At the end we see Avril finding the surface finally freeing herself from the waves, but what really stuck out to us is the light shining down afterward; obviously a representation of God’s salvation and mercy.

Recently in an open letter on her website Avril recalls a time early in her diagnoses where she felt that she was at death’s door, she didn’t want to die and had more to live for she cried out to God and thus Head Above Water was born.

God keep my head above water. Don’t let me drown it gets harder, I’ll meet you there at the alter as I fall down to my knees.

This lyric is particular talks about her salvation and finding God in one of her darkest moments.

The whole song is truly an Anthem for people who have ever felt hopeless and alone. Reminding all of us that God will always meet us where we are.

We here at Trevor Decker News are extremely happy that Lavigne chose this song as her return track because nothing is better then glorifying our Lord and Savior.
