“Keep Your Head Up”

Written by: Andy Grammer

Released: February 24, 2011

Andrew Grammer wrote this song at the beginning of his professional music career. It was written after a long day in the streets, trying to sell his album with little success. It was meant to be a pep talk to himself to not give up–to keep his head up.

Ironically, the song he wrote in this low point in his career would end up launching his career.

The song was a personal note to himself. However, the message applies to all of us. In those moments when we’re downtrodden, feeling hopeless, or struggling to make ends meet, let these lyrics be a reminder to also keep our head up.

“Keep Your Head Up” Sung by Andy Grammer
Keep Your Head Up: Lyrics

I’ve been waiting on the sunset
Bills on my mindset
I can’t deny they’re getting high
Higher than my income
Income’s bread crumbs
I’ve been trying to survive

The glow that the sun gets
Right around sunset
Helps me realize
That this is just a journey
Drop your worries
You are gonna turn out fine.
Oh, you turn out fine.
Fine, oh, you turn out fine.

But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh.
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh.

I know it’s hard, know it’s hard
To remember sometimes,
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh.

I got my hands in my pockets,
Kicking these rocks.
It’s kinda hard to watch this life go by.
I’m buying into skeptics,
Skeptics mess with
The confidence in my eyes

I’m seeing all the angles
Thoughts get tangled
I start to compromise
My life and my purpose.
Is it all worth it?
Am I gonna turn out fine?
Oh, you turn out fine.
Fine, oh, you turn out fine.

But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh.
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh.

I know it’s hard, know it’s hard,
To remember sometimes,
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh.

Only rainbows after rain
The sun will always come again.
And it’s a circle, circling,
Around again, it comes around again.
I said,

Only rainbows after rain
The sun will always come again.
And it’s a circle, circling,
Around again, it comes around,

But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh.
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh.

I know it’s hard, know it’s hard
To remember sometimes,
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh.

And keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh. (3X)
I said oh, no, no, no, no, no
