If you’re looking for an uplifting message in the form of a catchy song, “Look Up” by Robbie Boyd is perfect for you. Based in the UK, Boyd is an accomplished artist that delivers yet again with this new song. Full of self-reflection and passionate growth, “Look Up” is a lovely reminder of the importance of getting to know your inner child.
“My hearts on my sleeve, now I can just be like I was back in my youth.” When we reminisce on our childhoods, it is too often to laugh at our naivety. But there is something to be said of the natural vulnerability and emotional expression that comes with youth. Children are not afraid to wear their emotions on their sleeves, yet growing up sometimes teaches us that our feelings are burdensome to others. Boyd wants to unlearn that here and get back to the core of himself, and he encourages us to do the same: “let’s look up and see ourselves.”
Boyd wants the listener to “open up and just be love.” When you embrace vulnerability, you can connect with your inner child. With this comes childlike joy and wonder, allowing you to see the beauty of the world and within yourself. Living as if you are love itself is a beautiful theme in “Look Up.”
As the vocals build towards the end of the song, overlapping in a rejoiceful manner, the effect is very heartwarming. This song lifts you up, holds you there, and sends you out to seek your inner self. A great song with a great message, “Look Up” by Robbie Boyd is a must listen.
