Keep your Head Up Lyrics

Whoa-oa-oa
Eh-eh-eh-eh
Whoa-oa-oa-oa-oa

I've been waiting on the sunset
Bills on my mindset
I can't deny they're getting high
Higher than my income
Incomes bread crumbs
I've been trying to survive

The glow that the sun gets
Right...

    I think this song speaks out to everyone struggling in this country. He says,"I've been waiting on the sunset, bills on my mindset. I can't deny they're getting high. Higher than my income, incomes breadcrumbs...."

    My guess is, we're all struggling these days to make ends meet. So, I think that this song, is supposed to remind us what to do when life gets hard. We just have to say to ourselves, "The worse that I thought could happen to me, just happened to me. But, I'm going to be all right."

    Bottom line, the moral of the song seems really self explanatory. When life gets hard we have two choices: We could either cry and complain about it, then that doesn't solve anything. Or, we could pick ourselves back up, be strong, and keep our heads up. Hence the name of the song.

    Andy Grammer - Keep Your Head Up
    I've been waiting on the sunset
    Bills on my mindset
    I can get deny they’re getting high
    Higher than my income
    My income's breadcrumbs
    I've been trying to survive

    The glow that the sun gives
    Right around sunset
    Helps me realize
    This is just a journey
    Drop your worries
    You are gonna turn out fine
    Oh, you'll turn out fine
    Fine, oh, you'll turn out fine

    But you gotta keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down, eh eh
    You gotta keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down, eh eh

    I know it's hard, know its hard,
    To remember sometimes,
    But you gotta keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down, eh eh eh eh eh

    I've got my hands in my pockets,
    Kicking these rocks
    It's kinda hard to watch this life go by.
    I'm buyin in the skeptics,
    Skeptics mess with, the confidence in my eyes

    I'm seeing all the angles, starts to get tangled
    I start to compromise
    My life and the purpose
    Is it all worth it,
    Am I gonna turn out fine?
    Oh, you'll turn out fine
    Fine, oh, you'll turn out fine

    But you gotta keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down, eh eh
    You gotta keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down, eh eh

    I know it's hard, know its hard,
    To remember sometimes,
    But you gotta keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down, eh eh eh eh eh

    Only rainbows after rain
    The sun will always come again.
    Its a circle, circling,
    Around again, it comes around again
    I said

    Only rainbows after rain
    The sun will always come again
    Its a circle, circling,
    Around again, it comes around,

    But you gotta keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down, eh eh
    You gotta keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down, eh eh

    I know it's hard, know its hard
    To remember sometimes,
    But you gotta keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down, eh eh

    Keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down, eh eh

    Keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down, eh eh

    Keep your head up, oh oh
    And you can let your hair down

    this song is about when your down. you will be alright. Just keep your head up. When your down dont show your down and just move on. if you keep your head up no one will see your down and you wont be down anymore because you would move on.

    I believe Keep Your Head Up by Andy Grammer is about staying strong no matter what happens in life. Mostly everyone is struggling in life so what we all gotta do is keep our heads up. Everything will be alright and just fine.
