Song Description

"Head Down", third song on my EP ,highlights only one of the struggles many teenagers go through,finding out who they are. Being a teenager is no walk in the park. Self acceptance/discovery is already hard enough as is, add in peer pressure and insecurity

Story Behind the Song

In grade 10, a very close friend of mine stopped talking to me for months. We had been inseperable for two years prior, as most best friends are. When they stopped talking to me I realised I had no identity...a little dramatic, but I didn't know what kind of person I was. I was so reliant on my friend that I had lost all sense of who I truly wanted to be. This song is representative of how I felt about this situation, the unceratinty and insecurity that I felt.

Lyrics

Been living in her shadow for so long
That once she left I didn't know where I belonged
Pretended to be someone I am not
It was all an act a survival tactic and now I feel I've got

To keep my head down and melt into the crowd
Afraid to speak up and let the real me out
Ikeep my head down and melt into the crowd
I'm afraid of what they'll think

When they see I'm not the girl I pretended to be
Can barely recognize myself anymore I'm stunned
And I don't like just who I've become
Is it too late now, too late to change
Or do I give it all up and stay the same
Oh I keep my head down and melt into the crowd
Afraid to speak up and let the real me out
Ikeep my head down and melt into the crowd
I'm afraid of what they'll think
When they see I'm not the girl I pretended to be

Isolated and now I'm fading away
No longer to be seen
My heart is racing as I'm taking one more step away from who I want to be

Oh I keep my head down and melt into the crowd

Afraid to speak up and let the real me out
Ikeep my head down and melt into the crowd
I'm afraid of what they'll think

When they see I'm not the girl I pretended to be...
