They’re all upon me
And I find it hard to sleep
When the whole world’s with me
Hanging off my shoulder

Kimberly Anne - Start Over lyrics meaning


Kimberly Anne's official lyric explanation

The lyrics in Start Over and referring to not being able to sleep... I'm a, genuinely, I'm an awful sleeper. I'm a worrier - not a warrior. I'm a self-proclaimed worrier. I over-think everything - and I admit that - and at nighttime is when I find it the hardest to switch off. Which is why a lot of my writing happens at night - or in the shower for some reason.

So, yeah, I'm normally up until about 3 or 4am sometimes just, sort of, thinking things over and I, sort of, I take a lot of things on board, relationships with friends, just relationships in general, family or what's going on in the world.

So, literally, yeah, I just, sort of, turn everything over in my head a lot of the time and carry worries and I don't know how to switch off a lot of the time.. but I'm happy. I'm a happy person.
