Debby Ryan Shares Personal Lyrics From Her Upcoming Album

Debbby Ryan took to her Twitter this weekend to share some very personal lyrics from The Never Ending’s upcoming album due out on June 24th.

The lyrics read, “I don’t think I know how to rest in the mellow and slow I just make my bed on the storm inside my head, hours and hours in the day and the rest I spend awake; Hours and hours in the night it’s the rest I try to fight.”

Such beautiful lyrics! Debby goes on to say,

“I moved around a lot. I felt alone a lot. and scared. And weird. I dreamt too big for such a little girl, in such a big world. I wrote sometimes because I had a notebook and nobody else. I wrote until I didn’t need anybody else. And then, when it was just me and my stories, I learned that sometimes people could want to hear those stories. To understand the stories. I learned that the most important thing is not when someone understands your stories. It’s when your stories make people feel understood. I stumbled across talented, lovely people that felt understood by my stories, and needed to help tell them. So we became @TheNever_Ending. And right now? This thing that was born out of feeling so alone means something to people. I don’t feel alone in caring about this anymore.”

You are not alone Debby, your fans support you and can relate to the meaningful lyrics you share.

We can’t wait to hear the upcoming album, especially after knowing how personal and important it is to Debby. Music really can change lives and inspire others in such a positive way. We admire Debby for not only her talents but her honesty.

Selena Gomez At We Day CA: “I Lost Sight Of Who I Was” — Watch Her Confessional, Inspirational Speech!

Sure, you saw all the gorgeous pics of Selena Gomez at the first ever We Day California in Oakland, CA today (March 26), but you haven’t seen Selena Gomez until you’ve watched the speech she gave on stage at the Oracle Arena in front of a huge crowd of young people who had earned their seats by actively making positive changes in their communities and/or the world at large.

Selena, who came with a speech prepared on note cards, ditched the words she’d written down in favor of a candid talk with the supportive crowd, her voice often wavering with emotion — one that covered her early life as the daughter of a single teenage mother, her early days as an actress, the doors she had shut in her face, and the lessons she’s learned in the process.

“Let the critics be critcs, and let us just trust ourselves,” her mother once said to her, and it was a mantra she adopted for quite some time, and, boy, did she prove those who thought she wasn’t good enough wrong!

However, Selena acknowledged that trusting yourself and being yourself isn’t always easy: “They tell me what to wear, how to look, what I should say, how I should be. Until recently, I had given into that pressure,” she admitted. “I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people and I tried to change who I am because I thought that others would accept me for it. And I realized I don’t know how to be anything but myself.”

Her brief stint in rehab, possibly, is to thank for her renewed perspective on herself. We’re happy that Selena found her way back, and hope that others who struggle with identity and the pressures put on them daily can take her message to heart and take strength from it.

Watch her full speech in the video below and let us know what you think of what Selena had to say!
