In a recent article Canadian mainstream singer songwriter Avril Lavigne says her new song “Head Above Water” was inspired by what she has gone through, while suffering from Lyme Disease. The song talks about how she found help from God when she thought she was at the end of her life. In an interview with Elite Daily she said, “Under my breath, I prayed ‘God, please help to keep my head above the water.’ At 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.”
