Lyrics speak to mental health

As mental health continues to be a huge topic that affects millions of people we are seeing more artists talking about mental health in their songs. The lyrical content in Khalid's song speaks out about mental health in the second verse,

"So I'ma light it up, I'm getting high (So high)

Ask me how I am, I'm getting by (Getting by the minute)

But I'm thankful that I'm still alive (Alive)

Cause there's so much more I'm left to find."

There are references to gratitude and being grateful for what we have is something that helps with anxiety.

In addition, the song talks of getting by, which is how many people describe what it's like to live with a mental health disorder. You breathe in during the tough times and try to take it day by day and breath by breath. Living inside your head is never easy when you have a mental health disorder and Khalid reinforces this in his song. In the chorus, he mentions that thoughts are keeping him up all night and this is common with anxiety and depression. A racing mind can keep you up all night leading to many sleepless nights.

Relatable song
