Avril Lavigne Shares A Story Of A Time She Was A Fool In Love In “Tell Me It’s Over”: New Single
Avril Lavigne didn't just release her new single “Tell Me It’s Over” yesterday on digital platforms. She premiered the official music video on YouTube at the same time. How is the new single performing so far? Well, it's not the quick iTunes hit “Head Above Water” was but that doesn't mean it's a bad song. I personally like it. Is it a strong/radio-friendly second single? That's a whole different story. But with this upcoming album, I don't think Avril is focusing on the charts whereas she's focusing on sharing with her fans experiences she has gone through in the past few years. She isn't with a major label anymore so she's fully in control now. Her mind right now should be saying: “If I get a hit, cool, but if I don't, it's okay. I just want to give my fans these super personal songs”.
“Tell Me It’s Over” is a power ballad and a kind of worrying one. Why? Avril refers in the lyrics about a bad experience with a guy she was completely hooked on but whom she knew wasn't right for her. He told many lies and he just would have been a dark future for her. But at that time her mind wasn't the one making the decisions. She found herself in his arms over and over again every time he would go see her, even though she knew she was a fool for doing that. The only escape she could see at that time wasn't a very feminist one. She wanted him to be the one saying the goodbye words so she could have her peace. Until he didn't say a serious farewell, she was his fool.
What a story, huh?

I'm really intrigued to hear all the rest of songs from Avril’s upcoming album “Head Above Water”, which comes out on February 15th.
I'm already envisioning Grammys for it.
