Avril Lavigne’s ‘Head Above Water’ viewed 5million times on YouTube in Just 5 days after Release

Avril Lavigne’s battle with Lyme Disease inspired her to write a God-centric song that even could be labeled “praise and worship.”
Titled “Head Above Water,” the song quickly reached No. 1 on the iTunes download chart. Its YouTube lyric video has been viewed more than 5 million times, five days after its Sept. 19 release. It is her first single in five years.
The disease caused Lavigne, now 33, to pause her successful music career for more than two years. She fought it with antibiotics and herbs for two years and stayed in bed the “majority of the time,” according to her website .
“One night, I thought I was dying, and I had accepted that I was going to die. My mom laid with me in bed and held me,” she said. “I felt like I was drowning. Under my breath, I prayed ‘God, please help to keep my head above the water.’ In that moment, the song writing 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.”
“Head Above Water” describes the emotions she felt during her battle and includes the chorus, “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, drown, drown / Don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me drown.”
