music news 19/11/2018

The music industry was shook to the core when the news of Avicii's passing hit them earlier this year, and the more information we learn about him prior to it, the more the world realises he had been struggling for a very long time.

Most recently, lyrics from unreleased tracks of Avicii's has surfaced, giving us a really saddening insight into what might've been going through his head at the time.

Check out some of the lyrics below:

Crossbows and arrows
The smoke in the shadows
You’ll lose your mind
Standing on the battle line
Starting to choke on
Your heart in your throat and
It feels just like
You can’t remember how to fight

We’ll crack before we shatter
We can’t fall apart
We don’t get to die young
Trouble keeping our head sometimes
We just have to push on
We don’t get to give up this life
All the breath in your lungs
Is stronger than the tears in your eyes
It’s do or die
But we’re alive
And while we’re here
Will hold the line

Don’t hold your hands up
It’s your final stand
Put your white flag down
Oh don’t you surrender now
No hero’s story
There’s no blaze of glory
But dawn only comes
At the end of the night

We’ll crack before we shatter
We can’t fall apart
We don’t get to die young
Trouble keeping our head sometimes
We just have to push on
We don’t get to give up this life
All the breath in your lungs
Is stronger than the tears in your eyes
It’s do or die
But we’re alive
And while we’re here
Will hold the line

Extremely heartbreaking to read.
