Lyrics

You know what's funny?
I never used to think about the fact about loving myself
I just wasn't that guy
The thing about loving myself
Came when I hit rock bottom
And I really hit bottom and it was a desperate attempt to save myself
I really fundamentally believe in the power of commitment and making commitments to yourself, you gotta keep them
And in this desperate moment I made this vow to myself
I was at bottom
My company had fallen apart, I lost everything, I was really sick, I was miserable and I was depressed
One morning or one night, it was dark and I just got out of my bed and I was like, I can't do this anymore
I can't do this anymore
I can't do this anymore
I'm either gonna get out of this
Or die trying
And I walked over to my journal, grabbed my pen and I wrote
I knew I had to make a vow to myself to get out this
I didn't know what
And I just sat down and I wrote
It was freehand

[Chorus]
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself

Where that came from, I had no idea
I still don't
It was a pure, primal vow
It came from a deep place of, literally, I was trying to save myself
And then I realized that, what I'd done I was like, okay, I don't know how to do that
I gotta figure it out 'cause I made a commitment to myself
And a vow to yourself is a sacred act
You do that, you keep it, and life will change
And I had to figure out how to do it
I knew I had to work on my internal self
It wasn't about taking bubble baths
It's an internal thing, it's a mindset, it's a belief. It's a rock solid belief where your thoughts and your feelings and your emotions rise from
If they rise from there then your life rises from there

[Chorus]
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself

We're human beings, and fundamentally we're stuck with the human mind, this monkey brain that runs around on this untamed horse, right?
The details differ, the core is the same
And fundamentally it's fear and love
I had a literal near-death experience going, that's what I experienced
The only things that came up
Were fear and love, fear and love
And those are the primary motivators
Fear and love, fear and love
Fear and love, fear and love
You can't fight fear
You can't fight darkness
Darkness is the absence of light
So what you do is you work on the light
You bring the light in, and that takes away the darkness
And so that's something I actually really learned trying to save myself
If I worked on the light it would take care of the rest
And that's love
And that's love

[Chorus]
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
I vow to love myself
