As I stated in one of my previous text posts, it is definitely one of my favourite songs by not only Lights, but including other musician’s work.
It’s not only the musical side of it that I enjoy it. The lyrics hit me harder than a train could ever.
For this past year I have been living in my own hell. I’m currently in recovery for severe self-harming and suicidal tendencies. A lot happened to me when I was a child, not only bullying but physical, mental, emotional and sexual abuse. My mind is a complete and utter mess. I am dealing with multiple mental illnesses, some of them being severe. I am attempting to recover completely on my own, and oh my it has been a difficult year attempting to do that.
The song speaks to me because I can relate to it more than anything. It’s been a hard year for me, more than a hard on actually. I have been at the lowest point in my life, and it’s only up I can go from here.
When I first read the lyrics and listened to the official auto, I burst into tears. It was as if Lights was writing about my life. Every word I could relate to. Her song Pretend stopped me from committing suicide when I was twelve, and now her song Up We Go has inspired me to accept my past and move forward. To only go up from this moment.
Everyone here is ready to go. It’s been a hard year and I only know. From down this low, it’s only up we go.
