HEADHIGH
Doja Cat Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

Never hold my head high
Can you feel the head high?
Never hold my head high
Can you feel the head high?
Never hold my head high
Can you feel the head high?
Never hold my head high
Can you feel the head high?

I'm so afraid to put you down
But when we're safe we're all allowed
And I got a gift, I use my voice
But you can't hear amongst the noise
There's dirt around my neck, I'm blind
No, I don't have to hear them, why? It's nice
I got a mother, y'all got moms
And they love every fuckin' song
They help me hold my-

Never hold my head high
Can you feel the head high?
Never hold my head high
Can you feel the head high?
Never hold my head high
Can you feel the head high?
Never hold my head high
Can you feel the head high? (Yeah)

Fatherless, I do act so fatherless
Except that's not acting, actually, I lack some confidence
They draggin' my name through the web
They should call me, "Spider Bitch"
You got no designer, you gotta take care your momma 'nem
You work 9-5s and you still managin' to comment this?
Fuck is your problem, bitch?
I know you ain't proud of this
Deep down you just wish you didn't feel stuck in the life you live
Deep down you got power to change the view they assigned you with
Lost faith in humanity
Also, lost the common sense
Also, lost the motivation to begin to find this shit
I won't take it personally, 'cause I get addicted as well
Had to wish enemies well
That's how the internet feel
Herd to hold my

Never hold my head high (hard to hold my head high)
Can you feel the head high? (Can you feel the head high?)
Never hold my head high (hard to hold my head high)
Can you feel the head high? (Can you feel the head high?)
Never hold my head high (hard to hold my head high)
Can you feel the head high? (Can you feel the head high?)




Never hold my head high (hard to hold my head high)
Can you feel the head high? (Can you feel the head high?)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Doja Cat's song "HEADHIGH" reflect themes of self-doubt, insecurity, and societal pressures. The repetition of the phrase "Never hold my head high, can you feel the head high?" suggests a struggle with maintaining a sense of confidence and self-assuredness. The singer appears to be grappling with feeling afraid to assert themselves and show their true identity to the world. The repeated questioning of whether others can feel the same sense of confidence emphasizes a desire for validation and connection.


The lyrics also touch on the singer's internal conflicts and challenges. The reference to having a gift and using their voice, but feeling unheard amidst the noise, highlights the frustration of feeling overlooked or misunderstood. The mention of dirt around the neck and being blind metaphorically symbolizes feeling weighed down by external influences and unable to see clearly. Despite having a supportive mother figure who loves their work, the singer still struggles to maintain a sense of self-worth and confidence.


The mention of being fatherless and lacking confidence further delves into the singer's emotional struggles and feelings of inadequacy. The reference to having their name dragged through the web, likened to a spider, conveys a sense of being trapped and vulnerable to outside judgment and criticism. The lyrics also allude to societal expectations and pressures, such as working a 9-5 job and managing personal responsibilities, while facing scrutiny and negativity from others.


Overall, "HEADHIGH" explores the complexities of self-perception and the impact of external influences on one's sense of worth and identity. The lyrics communicate a message of resilience and self-empowerment in the face of self-doubt and societal pressures. The repeated questioning of holding one's head high and the struggle to feel confident and secure reflect a universal human experience of navigating personal challenges and striving to maintain a sense of self-assuredness in the midst of adversity.

I feel like everyone’s overlooking how vulnerable this song is and what the message is. I hope she’s healing from all the bullshit she’s been going through because it can’t be easy especially being under public scrutiny literally everyday.
