A Song About Self-Care

 

“It’s Ok Not To Be OK” – Marshmello & Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato is an American singer, songwriter, and actress from New Mexico. She started her career at a young age and since then has been known for acting in several popular films and television series, as well as, releasing several top-selling songs and albums. She has sold over 24 million records in the United States and has won a number of awards including an MTV Video Music Award, and a People’s Choice Award. Marshmello is an American DJ and electronic music producer. The two worked together to release their new song “It’s Ok Not To Be OK.” The song discusses mental health and the fear of expressing negative emotions. It’s an important topic in the world today as many have had to deal with new shocking and stressful circumstances. The song is a reminder to many that you do not have to be happy and have everything sorted at all times. It’s acceptable to have moments when you feel down and to know that there are others experiencing the same.

“…All you need is somebody to say. It’s okay not to be okay”

 

Lyrics

Feeling like a drop in the ocean
That don’t nobody notice
Maybe it’s all just in your head
Feeling like you’re trapped in your own skin
And now your body’s frozen
Broken down, you’ve got nothing left
When you’re high on emotion
And you’re losing your focus
And you feel too exhausted to pray
Don’t get lost in the moment
Or give up when you’re closest
All you need is somebody to say
It’s okay not to be okay
It’s okay not to be okay
When you’re down and you feel ashamed
It’s okay not to be okay
Feeling like your life’s an illusion
And lately, you’re secluded
Thinking you’ll never get your chance
Feeling like you got no solution
It’s only ’cause you’re human
No control, it’s out of your hands
When you’re high on emotion
And you’re losing your focus
And you feel too exhausted to pray
Don’t get lost in the moment
Or give up when you’re closest
All you need is somebody to say
It’s okay not to be okay
It’s okay not to be okay
When you’re down and you feel ashamed
It’s okay not to be okay
When you’re high on emotion
And you’re losing your focus
And you feel too exhausted to pray
Don’t get lost in the moment
Or give up when you’re closest
All you need is somebody to say
It’s okay not to be okay (ohh)
It’s okay not to be okay (no, no, no)
When you’re down and you feel ashamed
(When you feel ashamed)
It’s okay not to be okay (no, no)
It’s okay not to be okay
