Copeland - Chin Up Lyrics




With your eyes closed,
Watching a strange show
Play out in your head,
But you were smiling somehow
And your day froze,
And everyone in it
Sat still as a rose,
But we were moving somehow.

Back to where we started,
Losing who we were,
Maybe we should only
Tip a bottle back to keep us filled up.

Back to where we started,
Losing who we were,
Everybody knows that,
You’d break your neck to keep your chin up.

Open your eyes,
And the drops come,
And a snail raced down to your neck,
And looked up,
But you were smiling somehow.

Back to where we started,
Losing who we were,
Maybe we should only
Tip a bottle back to keep us filled up.

Back to where we started,
Losing who we were,
Everybody knows that
You’d break your neck to keep your chin up.

    With your eyes closed watching a strange show play out in your head
    But you were smiling somehow
    And your day froze and everyone in it sat still as a rose
    But we were moving somehow

    Back to when we started, losing who we were
    Maybe we should only tip a bottle back to keep us filled up
    Back to when we started, losing who we were
    Everybody knows that you'd break your neck to keep your chin up

    Open your eyes
    And the drops come in a snail race down to your neck
    And look up but you were smiling somehow

    Back to when we started losing who we were
    Maybe we should only tip a bottle back to keep us filled up
    Back to when we started losing who we were
    Everybody knows that you'd break your neck to keep your chin up

    You'd break your neck to keep your chin up

  23. Payvand Pajoohi

    I wish the video had the same meaning as the song. It really doesn't do the song now justice. :/

  24. Lux Orbis

    what a suck video for beautiful song

    Asmara Dewi

    Lux Orbis yessss...you right 😥

    The GalvaKnight

    Agreed. It never made a lot of sense to me in the context of this track.

    NickPuentes

    I have to agree.

    carooolineem

  36. Austin Meador

    Thank you for describing my life.

  37. Miih J. Scott

    Boa tarde

  38. SociallyAwkwardGirl

    no, it's because she was suffering in the first place, and despite being surrounded by people, she was empty inside, and as time passed, she became increasingly aware of it.
    She tried to distract herself, with the video, with cleaning, with friends eventually even though she was isolated in the first place... then she realized that even having friends wouldn't help the loneliness, she was forced to face her truth.

  39. Matt

    Dylan Anderson's version is just as beautiful.

  40. Wulfric Bantum

    Dylan Anderson covered this and its amazing, you should check it out

  41. SociallyAwkwardGirl

    I had no idea this video was so perfect. I just posted the video for the song, because I related to the song to describe my thoughts, but then I saw the video afterwards, and it's exactly how I feel. I was looking all night for a song to describe what only this video has said, because nobody knows

  42. James Lynn

    If it's not anything else by Copeland, maybe something by Owl City? This song also kind of reminded me of "Oh Well, Oh Well" by Mayday Parade. Hope this helps?

  43. Luciano Ramirez

    she is gorgeus ...love her mustache

  44. imkerenful

    i don't get it :/ que bodrio de video!

  45. xXwheresfluffyXxx

    Hahaha her hand at the end is fat.

  46. Wearing Kale

    can someone please explain the music video?

  47. Jhube

    It's a good song, but I'd like to know the exact meaning to the video.

  48. Tamelancholy

    how is this deep or clever? so the girl is obviously lonely, its not in a profound way or anything. i cant believe i waited till the end of the video and nothing awesome happened.

  49. MBIIdollaBill

    wow this girl is very hot.

  50. supalove

    yeah its a shame for people who have seen the video before listening to the song because the song by itself is 100 times better! but ill cut them some slack because it was a low-budget mv. i find it to be very scary however and i will probably have bad dreams about this tonight.....

  51. Incasinoout c

    Disappointing video

  52. Danny Colemire

    that video sucks, the girls ugly.
    the song however is so beautiful, its ridiculous

  53. elliport14

    she's the swan queen

  54. nolessthanill

    i am convinced now that Copeland doesn't leave home to make a video.

  55. MrNiCK10111

    i FUCKING HAAAATTTTEEee WHEN THE FUCKING AD FUCCCCKKIINNGGG FREEEZZEESSS LIKE WHAT THE FUCK!!!! oh wait.. nevermind... its playing now C:

  56. Izmir Fariz

    Ultimately, her desire to be accepted eats her up on the inside, either because she hasn't been honest with who she really is, or because she's trying too hard to please everyone but herself.

  57. Izmir Fariz

    @neongeno5 I think it's supposed to be her checking her mail several times a day. It's sort of like a representation of her being paranoid about being accepted. That parcel she receives in the mail is the gratification that she seeks to affirm her worth. Well, that's my understanding.

  58. nowandforever117

    This girl is very pretty.

  59. daurpm

    this sounds a great lot like frou frou

  60. Avery Henry

    People who dislike this video just don't get the meaning behind it. I won't be your english teacher and analyze this for you. There's a reason it was shot like this instead of with flashy lights and colors. It's raw. Figure it out.

  61. classiclyred

    This song is absolutely beautiful, but this video sucks.

  62. tofuleg

    @GuitarHero2790 Well, right. I'm saying that Deathcab made that hole (early Deathcab was maybe a little Red House Painters mixed in with The Beatles, or some shit?) a little wider, so bands like Copeland could reach a broader audience. Not that any of this is of consequence. Also, I'm not talking about any top 40 bullshit.

  63. tofuleg

    @monagibbs Yeah, I hear you. I really like the vocals, I guess it's Aarons (what I consider) polished delivery and the similarity I hear with Deathcab, a band which became mainstream and helped this type of music become more familiar and accessible.

  64. tofuleg

    @markrazmandi "Ignorant fuck" eh? Do I know you? Or do you often go around acting like a douche bag and calling people derogatory names? Copeland is a pop band. And a good one, as my opinion is supported my the coincidence of me wearing one of their shirts as I type this. Being objective and thinking about music, I will sometimes hope my opinions will strike up intelligent conversations. Obviously this isn't going to happen with someone like yourself. Have a good one.

  65. monagibbs

    i wouldn't exactly call it mainstream, but it depends on what you would consider that. I've never heard copeland on the radio, and they seem to have a distinct sound.

  66. tubeuify

    can someone explain to me what they believe is the meaning?

  67. tofuleg

    @JohnMark8403 yeah, maybe it was a little harsh.

  68. John Amos

    @tofuleg Really? a "song for pre-teens"?

  69. tofuleg

    Not bad for a gooey song for pre-teens. Straight up polished mainstream pop. Great song though.

  70. Michelle Aviles

    good song! :)
