Young Blood - Bea Miller


The Experience: Being an outcast is an all to common experience for many people. Instead of trying to fit in maybe its time to stand up for ourselves and let those who are worth it value us for who we are. Maybe its time to set the tone ourselves instead of living up to other's standards.


Music video: Bea Miller performs Young Blood surrounded by the rejected and unappreciated young men and women for whom she has written this anthem. The reasons for this rejection vary from body weight to style of clothes. But the common reality is that these unique and valuable people aren't appreciated for who they are and have to go to all different extremes to try to get that appreciaton. One by one they congregate around Bea and begin to find in her and those like them the support and acceptance they are seeking. This support begins to brighten their lives and gives them the courage to stand together with confidence in the closing scene of the video. They might not be the popular and powerful, but they are no longer alone and together they can face the battles life throws their way.


The Meaning: We all want to be valued for the unique person we are and often invest lots of effort in being accepted ...we were making history ...soaking in the glory of it allTrying to get this recognition we often cross lines and try to be someone we are not ...breaking rules and breaking free, questioning the writing on the wallThe problem is that ...in dark times when we close our eyes... and people abandon us ...it’s a nightmare, it’s a nightmare... what are we going to fall back on? Bea reminds us that it is not about being accepted, but about being the unique and priceless person we are and letting those worthy of us appreciate us for who we are ...we’ve got young blood, no one chose us, we make our own love in this world.

Ask yourself: Do I spend tons of time and effort trying to fit in or do I have the courage to set the tone myself?


LYRICS:

We were making history
Breaking rules and breaking free
Questioning the writing on the wall
Coming from the underground
Laughing as we're falling down
Soaking in the glory of it all

But in dark times when we close our eyes
It’s a nightmare, it’s a nightmare
When the sun don’t shine we lose our minds
But I swear, we can get there

We’ve got young blood
Can’t destroy us
We make our own luck in this world
We’ve got young blood
No one chose us
We make our own love in this world

Someday we could run away
See it all before the pictures fade
And bottle up the feeling in a jar
Pass around to all our friends
We can breathe it in and out again
Huddled in the backseat of the car

But in dark times when we close our eyes
It’s a nightmare, it’s a nightmare
When the sun don’t shine we lose our minds
But I swear, we can get there

We’ve got young blood
Can’t destroy us
We make our own luck in this world
We’ve got young blood
No one chose us
We make our own love in this world

And the voices will get loud
If you never learn to shut them out
If you’re lost you can be found
If you follow me until you hear the sound
Put ‘em up, put ‘em up now
If you know we’re never backing down
We’re never backing down, no

We’ve got young blood
Can’t destroy us
We make our own luck in this world
We’ve got young blood
No one chose us
We make our own love in this world

We’ve got young blood
Can’t destroy us
We make our own luck in this world
We’ve got young blood
No one chose us
We make our own love in this world
Yeah, cause we’ve got young blood
