The Comeback of Avril Lavigne With the Song Titled, “Head Above Water” Avril Lavigne has released the full-length version of her new song, “Head Above Water” which was inspired by her struggles with Lyme disease. The new song is Lavigne’s first song in five years. “One night, I thought I was dying, and I had accepted that I was going to die. My mom laid with me in bed and held me. I felt like I was drowning. Under my breath, I prayed, ‘God, please help to keep my head above the water.’ In that moment, the songwriting of this album began. It was like I tapped into something. It was a very spiritual experience. Lyrics flooded through me from that point on.” Lavigne wrote in a letter to fans. The song’s message will also be echoed through Lavigne’s foundation. T-Shirts will be sold in order to raise funds for those suffering from Lyme disease and can’t afford the treatment needed. Have you heard “Head Above Water”? What are your thoughts?
