Keep Up

I wrote “Keep Up” when feeling particularly lonely in my diverse ways of thinking. I needed a song to pick me up. I don’t always go with the flow of public opinion – my neurodiverse mind doesn’t always see the point of that. I have strong beliefs and I stand by them. Sometimes this is isolating – but compromising my values is a greater obstacle.

Being of different mind often puts up obstacles, but many people who are neurodiverse are also incredibly resilient. Although sometimes I want to curl up and hibernate (and sometimes I do, let’s be honest), I keep going. Sometimes I need to ask for help. Asking for help is not weakness – oh no! There is strength in knowing when you need aid. That’s what makes us human. We are not meant to do things in a bubble!

The chorus speaks to the fact that, however weird and off the beaten path I am – these are the qualities that have led me to the best people in my life. They love me for who I am, in all my weirdness. And that’s gold. I wish for everyone to find their fellow weirdos and embrace themselves fully for who they are. That is the core meaning of this piece ❤️. Be weird, and be proud! Your true ones will embrace you for it.

As for “Keep Up”? It’s a call for those who vibrate with me to keep walking by my side. I need my tribe!

Here’s the lyrics!

In my life, in my life
I’ve hit many a wall, many a wall
But I won’t let that keep, let that keep
Me from my path

I’ve walked the high road high,
high road high,
I’ve walked the low road low,
low road low,
I’ve seen them come and go, come and go
While I walk

Many people are blind, people are blind
Their eyes are closed all the time, closed all the time
They don’t know where to go, know where to go
They are lost

Call out loud, call out loud
Someone will come your way, come your way
They’ll hold your hand, hold your hand, hold your hand
While you walk

Hey you know I’m pretty weird and you love it
You know I’m really weird and you love it
Hey you know I’m pretty weird and you love it
Hey you know I’m pretty weird and you can’t get enough of it

Hey you know I’m pretty weird and you love it
You know I’m pretty weird and you love it
Hey you know I’m really weird and you love it
Hey you know I’m pretty weird and you love it

Keep up
Keep up
Keep up
Keep up
