Demi Lovato Details Mental Health, Addiction Struggles in New Song ‘Anyone’

Demi Lovato performed her new single “Anyone” at the Grammy Awards. The personal song detailed Lovato’s struggles with mental health and depression, and it was reportedly written just days before her near-fatal overdose in 2018.

In the song, Lovato is calling out for help.

“Anyone, please send me anyone / Lord, is there anyone? / I need someone,” she sings.

Lovato had previously explained why “Anyone” is the song she wanted to perform in her first performance after the overdose during an interview with Zane Lowe.

“If I ever come back, I want to sing this song,” Lovato said. “I almost listen back and hear these lyrics as a cry for help, and you kind of listen back to it and you kind of think, how did nobody listen to this song and think, ‘Let’s help this girl?’ I was recording it in a state of mind where I felt I was OK, but clearly I wasn’t. I even listen back to it and I’m like, ‘Gosh, I wish I could go back in time and help that version of myself.’”

Demi Lovato – ‘Anyone’ (Audio & Lyrics)

[Intro]
Uh, uh

[Verse 1]
I tried to talk to my piano
I tried to talk to my guitar
Talked to my imagination
Confided into alcohol
I tried and tried and tried some more
Told secrets till my voice was sore
Tired of empty conversation
’Cause no one hears me anymore

[Pre-Chorus]
A hundred million stories
And a hundred million songs
I feel stupid when I sing
Nobody’s listening to me
Nobody’s listening
I talked to shooting stars
But they always get it wrong
I feel stupid when I pray
So why am I praying anyway?
If nobody’s listening

[Chorus]
Anyone, please send me anyone
Lord, is there anyone?
I need someone
Anyone, please send me anyone
Lord, is there anyone?
I need someone

[Verse 2]
I used to crave the world’s attention
I think I cried too many times
I just need some more affection
Anything to get me by

[Pre-Chorus]
A hundred million stories
And a hundred million songs
I feel stupid when I sing
Nobody’s listening to me
Nobody’s listening
I talked to shooting stars
But they always get it wrong
I feel stupid when I pray
Why the fuck am I praying anyway?
If nobody’s listening

[Chorus]
Anyone, please send me anyone
Lord, is there anyone?
I need someone
Anyone, please send me anyone
Oh, Lord, is there anyone?
I need someone
Oh, anyone, I need someone
Oh, anyone, I need someone

[Outro]
A hundred million stories
And a hundred million songs
I feel stupid when I sing
Nobody’s listening to me
Nobody’s listening
