Walk Me Home Above Water

Walk me home in the dead of night

I can’t be alone with all this on my mind

So say you’ll stay with me tonight

‘Cause there is so much wrong going on outside

P!nk, Walk Me Home

This refrain really resonates with me. Because, when I occasionally have sleepless nights, my mind is racing with thousands of different thoughts and beating myself up about things that have already happened or comparing myself to people and blaming myself for not being at the same point in life that they are when I know I probably could be. I can’t be alone on nights like this, and all I want is a member of my family of choice to climb into bed with me and hold me. I try to hug myself sometimes, or cover up with my blankets, but it’s not the same.

Yeah my life is what I’m fighting for

Can’t part the sea

Can’t reach the shore

And my voice becomes the driving force

I won’t let this pull me overboard

God keep my head above water

Don’t let me drown

It gets harder

I’ll meet you there at the altar

as I fall down to my knees

Don’t let me drown

Don’t let me drown

Avril Lavigne, Head Above Water

As I was listening to “Head Above Water” this morning, I noticed similarities with “Walk Me Home”. Both songs are about survival, maybe more specifically not wanting to be alone. Wanting someone to be by your side to help you fight through whatever life throws at you.

Definitely two songs I need right now.
