about

Heavyweight Champion is the first single from my upcoming project 'Sad Summer Feelings'; a six-episode music and visual series portraying the feelings and experiences that span across the summer months.

I felt like I really needed to go somewhere different musically for a moment, having experienced depressive feelings over the last year. Sad Summer Feelings is my roadmap through the highs and lows to come, and I hope it will help people in the same way it’s helping me.

Heavyweight Champion is about the rush of excitement and the stream of reckless behaviour we tend to indulge in during difficult times. We can end up riding the line between recklessness and having a good time. This song is about the month-long party I’m going to be having at the beginning of the Summer when life starts to return to normal.

lyrics

Sip sippin'
Everybody's inside
Sweet livin'
Somebody call up the lifeline
It's a spit fire
Baby don't cry
I'ma take you higher

Blue summer
They said it on the radio
Trade lovers
And i don't wanna go slow
It's a dark day
In a drunk haze
And i'll let go
If you say so

Hi, I just wanna cry get real high
Lose my mind to another life
So are you gonna take me on a sick ride?
Holla it's a pill and we're good tonight
baby I'm estranged and i wanna change
I don't really know where the land lies
Gonna pick you up take you out my mind
Swallowing the pill like it's ride or die

I'ma ride I'ma ride I'ma ride tonight
I'ma die I'ma die 'til the feeling's right
I'ma ride I'ma ride I'ma ride tonight
I'ma die I'ma die 'til the feeling's right

Cheap lovin'
I'm seeing life in stereo
It's too much though when you gonna let me go?
With the tired eyes
Let the heat rise
And we capsize
Pull you right back to me

Give me love now, give me love
I know, we'll be fine when it's over
Pretending not to know you ya
Tryna stay sober, pull you right back to me

Now I'm a little torn
Lying on the floor
And i really wish you weren't the enemy
Find me in a mess when the high's not free
Dream a little dream and we're good tonight

Take a little chance have a little dance
Walk along the line like you'll never leave
Think of all the things that we'll never be
Dream a little dream and we're good tonight

I'ma ride I'ma ride I'ma ride tonight
I'ma die I'ma die 'til the feeling's right
I'ma ride I'ma ride I'ma ride tonight
I'ma die I'ma die 'til the feeling's right

I'm a heavy heavy heavy weight
I'm alright if you cry my name
I'm a heavy heavy heavy weight
I'm a heavyweight champion
I'm a heavy heavy heavy weight
I'ma die come alive today
I'm a heavy heavy heavy weight
I'm a heavyweight champion
