Avril Lavinge: Head Above Water Featured
New to the Life FM playlist is the new single from Avril Lavinge, inspired by a near-death experience after being diagnosed with Lyme disease.
Lavigne says she penned "Head Above Water" from her bed, where she thought she was going to die.
"I had accepted death and could feel my body shutting down. I felt like I was drowning. Like I was going under water and I just needed to come up for air. Like I was in a river being pulled in a current. Unable to breathe. Praying to God for Him to help me just keep my head above the water. To help me see through the stormy weather. I grew closer to Him. My mother held me. In her arms, I wrote the first song that I am releasing to tell my story."
