She’s not as angst-y as “Complicated”. But instead, Avril Lavigne’s anger has matured into an underlying anger—ready to kick you in the crotch at any moment if need be.
She’s wised-up from trying to smile and act cheery like she did in that disaster of a turn a few years ago. Remember that laughable thing called “Hello Kitty”?
In “Head Above Water”, Avril is just trying to keep it together. Haven’t we all felt that way? Perhaps she's emoting about her failed marriages and her struggle with Lyme disease. The gal's been through a lot.
God, keep my head above water
Don't let me drown, it gets harder
I'll meet you there at the altar
As I fall down to my knees
Don't let me drown, drown, drown
Don't let me, don't let me, don't let me drown
Avril may have just gotten her career back on track with this one. We’re feeling so much zen… what is wrong with us?
Haus of V is a creative collective that shares a similar mindset -- with a twist.
