About Head Up High

"Head Up High" is a song by Danish singer-songwriter Oh Land, taken from her fourth studio album Earth Sick (2014). It was released as the album's lead single on 14 October 2014 through Tusk or Tooth Records. The single was written and produced solely by Oh Land. In order to record both the song and the parent album, the singer relied on donations from fans to a PledgeMusic campaign she created. Described as a dance-pop recording, "Head Up High" originated as a song written for a close friend of Oh Land who was having relationship issues. Noted as a standout track on Earth Sick, "Head Up High" received praise from music critics. Other reviewers noted that the single was interesting and uplifting. An accompanying music video for the track was released onto her Vevo account in October 2014. It was directed by Duncan Winecoff and features Oh Land dancing and singing in a dark studio. A live performance of "Head Up High" was also uploaded onto her Vevo account in March 2015.

Where were you when I needed heat?
I'm frozen
Gotta get myself up and believe
I'm broken
Swim forward, we're under water
She took your breath away
Tell me love, thought you said you'd die for me

No heavy rain's gonna hold me down anymore
No sin or shame's gonna strain my soul, oh no
Another day I'm the shine in your eyes
Another day
Gonna hold my head up high

Higher, higher, higher,
My head up
My head up
My head up

One day was all it took for us
To fall apart
Ship sinking with my heavy heart
Come rescue us
I stay strong, melt the words on my tongue
Lights flash, you walk away
Love's so big
Got no room for hate in me

No heavy rain's gonna hold me down anymore
No sin or shame's gonna strain my soul, oh no
Another day I'm the shine in your eyes
Another day
Gonna hold my head up high

All these times I told myself
Inseparable but time would tell
Nothing is set in stone
Carved in wood can't control
All these nights I begged for rest
Spin off into the wilderness
Nothing is set in stone
Turn my back
Hit the road

No heavy rain's gonna hold me down anymore
No sin or shame's gonna strain my soul, oh no
Another day I'm the shine in your eyes
Another day
Gonna hold my head up high
