I’ve gotta keep the calm before the storm
I don’t want less I don’t want more
Must bar the windows and the doors 
To keep me safe to keep me warm 
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 
上帝保佑我不再沉淪 在水中上別被淹沒
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
So pull me up from down below 
‘Cause I’m underneath the undertow
Come dry me off and hold me close
I need you now I need you most 
我現在祈求祢和我同在 非常需要與我同在
And I can’t see in the stormy weather
I can’t seem to keep it all together 
And I can’t swim the ocean like this forever
And I can’t breathe 
God keep my head above water
I lose my breath at the bottom Come rescue me I’ll be waiting
無法呼吸困在深海 請來救贖 我將等待
I’m too young to fall asleep 
God keep my head above water Don’t let me drown 
上帝保佑我不再沉淪 在水中上別被淹沒
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
keep my head above water



  Hi guys,

  I’m so excited to finally be able to announce the first single off my new album along with its release date. Five years have gone by since I released my last album. I spent the last few years at home sick fighting Lyme Disease. Those were the worst years of my life as I went through both physical and emotional battles. I was able to turn that fight into music I’m really proud of. I wrote songs in my bed and on the couch and recorded there mostly as well. Words and lyrics that were so true to my experience came pouring out of me effortlessly. Truly... by keeping my spirits up, having goals to reach and a purpose to live for, my music helped to heal me and keep me alive.



Thank you for waiting so patiently as I fought through and still continue to fight, the battle of my lifetime. The first song I am choosing to release is called “Head Above Water.” It is also the first song I wrote from my bed during one of the scariest moments of my life. 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. I later met a beautiful soul, Travis Clark, and we sat down at the piano and sculpted the rest of the song. Then I took it to the genius, Stephan Moccio and love what he did to the music.

  謝謝你們在我與疾病抗爭期間如此耐心的等待,而我仍在繼續與疾病扛爭,這將是我一生的戰鬥。我選擇發布的第一首新歌名為“Head Above Water”。這也是我躺在床上寫的第一首歌,那時正值我生命中最可怕的時刻。我已經接受了死亡,能夠感受到自己的身體正停止運作。我感覺自己快要淹死了。就像我正沉入水中,想要掙脫上岸去呼吸,卻又被水流拖住。我祈求上帝讓我浮出水面,幫助我度過這狂風暴雨。當我離他越來越近時,媽媽抱住了我。在她的懷中,我寫出了這首即將發布的首支單曲,講述自己的故事。後來我遇到了一個美麗的靈魂Travis Clark,我們一起坐在鋼琴前,打磨歌曲剩下的部分。之後我把它帶給了天才製作人Stephan Moccio,我很喜歡他對這首歌的製作。



I have decided to be truthful about my struggle, open and more vulnerable than ever before. And to be honest, part of me doesn’t want to talk about being sick because I want it to all be behind me, but I know I have to. Because not only is it a part of my life, I need to bring awareness to the severity of Lyme Disease. A single bug bite can f*ck you up hard. People aren’t aware that Lyme must be treated almost immediately. Often if they are aware, they go untreated simply because they can’t get a Lyme diagnosis! And even when they do get a diagnosis, a lot of times they simply can’t afford the treatment.




My Foundation wants to be sure that doesn’t happen as often as it does, so on our website, we’re now providing Lyme prevention resources, and links so you can connect with Lyme Literate doctors (that have learned how to correctly diagnose this disease and provide treatment as quickly as possible). Soon we’ll be announcing an alliance with top scientific teams that will accelerate Lyme research. And we’re about to launch an initiative that YOU can help us with - so that together, we can help more individuals affected by Lyme Disease get the treatment they desperately need to come out the other side of this insidious disease. Please, join us in the fight while I tell the world my story and bring awareness to Lyme Disease. I’m taking my life back into my own hands and doing what it is I know I am meant to be doing in this life time. Making music. And sharing my healing and hope, through my music. I wish for this all to touch you, to bring you strength, to lift you up, to inspire and to encourage you. I want more than ANYTHING to be back up on stage. To be holding my guitars and running around. To sing my heart out and travel around the world to see all of my fans. I will do EVERYTHING I can to get back up on stage, to travel, to sing to you, to work again. But I have to always listen to my body and keep a healthy balance, so please be patient as we go. I wrote and recorded this album and to me this is a victorious moment. A huge accomplishment. I am very proud and thankful to everyone who waited so patiently and lovingly with me to support this process for me.




Here. I now have a very strong, triumphant, powerful and true record to me and my experiences over the last few years. My first single is called “Head Above Water”, and it will be here on September 19th. I’m so excited to be returning with new music and to have you on this journey with me. Let’s do this! New era!

  過去幾年的我和我的經歷,讓我現在擁有了這張強大,成功,有力且真實的唱片。首發單曲名為“Head Above Water”,將於9月19號公開。我很高興能帶著新音樂回歸,也很高興有你們和我一起踏上這段旅程。讓我們開始吧!新的時代!

  All My Love,

  Avril Lavigne
