Shawn Mendes Releases Emotional Music Video for “In My Blood”

By  | 

Shawn Mendes‘ new single, “In My Blood,” is an emotional, raw take on his battle with anxiety. It’s the 19-year-old’s most personal he’s ever written and the just-released music video matches that vibe personally.

The Canadian crooner lays on the floor (“Laying on the bathroom floor, feeling nothing“) throughout the whole thing as he literally weathers a brutal storm. But even though he’s being pelted with raindrops at one point, the sun eventually comes out and flowers grow around him. It’s a stunning visual representation of the phrase, ‘After the rain comes a rainbow.’

Check out the “IMB” music video above and the lyrics below. And if you’re as obsessed with the tune as we are, you can download it on iTunes or Spotify now!

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t
It isn’t in my blood

Laying on the bathroom floor, feeling nothing
I’m overwhelmed and insecure, give me something
I could take to ease my mind slowly
Just have a drink and you’ll feel better
Just take her home and you’ll feel better
Keep telling me that it gets better
Does it ever?

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
No medicine is strong enough
Someone help me
I’m crawling in my skin
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t

It isn’t in my blood
It isn’t in my blood

I’m looking through my phone again, feeling anxious
Afraid to be alone again, I hate this
I’m trying to find a way to chill, can’t breathe, oh

Is there somebody who could
Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
No medicine is strong enough

Someone help me
I’m crawling in my skin
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t

It isn’t in my blood
It isn’t in my blood
I need somebody now
I need somebody now
Someone to help me out
I need somebody now

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t
It isn’t in my blood

It isn’t in my blood
It isn’t in my blood
I need somebody now
It isn’t in my blood
I need somebody now
It isn’t in my blood
