mental health day

by Ryan Burrows

Genre: Folk/Acoustic


Rank: 26


This is the first song I have ever written, it is very personal and special to me. The mood / sound is the simple, yet dramatic, with a single piano, breathy, layered vocals. It was a song that really hit me hard, and got me through some times When I literally struggled to get out of bed, due to an untreated anxiety disorder. Mental Health Day originally had a lot more lyrics and a melodic chorus, but I decided to strip it back, as I feel repeating ‘honestly I’m fine’ is incredibly powerful. It can either be taken as literally – Im fine, just need a day to myself. Or, as though I’m trying to convince myself I’m fine. I first listened to the final version, it literally gave me chills. I’m really proud of this song and hope it is meaningful to others needing some self care.
