Level Of Concern lyrics

(Need you, tell me)
(Need you, tell me)

Panic on the brain, world has gone insane
Things are starting to get heavy
I can’t help but think I haven’t felt this way
Since I asked you to go steady

Wondering
Would you be, my little quarantine?
Or is this the way it ends?

‘Cause I told you, my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
And you could bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay

Panic on the brain, Michael’s gone insane
Julie starts to make me nervous
I don’t really care what they would say
I’m asking you to stay
In my bunker underneath the surface

Wondering
Would you be, my little quarantine?
Or is this the way it ends?

‘Cause I told you, my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
And you could bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay

Tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
Tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
Bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay

‘Cause I told you, my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
You could bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay

I need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
Need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
I need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
Need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay

Need you now
I need you now

‘Cause I told you, my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
You could bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay

Tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
Tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
You could bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay

In a world, where you could just lie to me
And I’d be okay
We’ll be okay
We’re gonna be okay

(My level of concern)
(Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay)
I need you

(Need you, tell me)
(Need you, tell me)

Song meaning

Need you, tell me: meaning

“Level of Concern” is a “simple but hopeful” song about Tyler’s thoughts concerning the effects the coronavirus made on society and the music industry. In the song, Tyler’s thoughts are presumed to be shared with his wife Jenna as he also asks them for comfort, even if it is a lie.

“Panic on the brain, world has gone insane” verse meaning:

This song was released during the coronavirus panic so many of the track’s lyrics mirror what was happening in the world at the time. “World has gone insane” likely references the fact that the World Health Organization had recently declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a pandemic. “Panic on the brain” most likely refers to the state of panic that numerous people went to, many of them buying stores out of supplies like toilet paper.
COVID-19, or the coronavirus, is an infectious disease that causes respiratory illness symptoms that are similar to pneumonia. Those suffering from it often experience a cough, fever, or in more serious cases, difficulty breathing. Many citizens all around the world were being encouraged to quarantine themselves in their houses in an attempt to help slow the spread of COVID-19, and with the United States issuing state-wide stay-at-home orders.

” Things are starting to get heavy, mm” meaning

KISS 107.1 Cincinnati tweeted some of the song’s deeper backstory, revealing that much of the song is inspired by Tyler’s relationship with his wife, Jenna, with whom he had just celebrated their five-year wedding anniversary. The radio station shared:
Tyler’s mom inspired him to write a song for their fans in this unprecedented moment in all of our lives. He decided to write about the last time he felt this out of control. This virus has taken such a huge toll on everyone and as a new dad now in lockdown it makes him feel helpless. He chose to turn it into a love song about his wife. He compares this time of little control to that moment when he decided to commit to a life with Jenna & that uneasy feeling of realizing that when you make that kind of a commitment to someone else, you give up a good portion of control. Its no longer all about you, its about us!
Throughout the song, Tyler compares the commitment of a relationship to being in a quarantine together and a “bunker underneath the surface.”

And you could bring down my level of concern meaning

Often during times of crises, people lie that things are going to get better when they don’t actually think they will. They just say they will to comfort those around them.
Tyler is presumably asking for comfort from his wife Jenna throughout the song, a theme that was introduced in “Tear in My Heart” and returned in “Smithereens.”
But if I’m feelin’
Someone stepping towards you, can’t describe
Just what I’m feelin’

And you know
I got your six…
This shows their working marriage relationship in that they both support and help each other. Jenna often posts about the two of them on Instagram. When their daughter Rosie was born, she wrote to Tyler in a post saying:
tyler,
you’re a thinker, you’re a trooper, you’re a fixer, you’re a looker still at 6am with no sleep. you work so hard. you are the most diligent and supportive person, I’m lucky you’re my person. Rosie and I love you.
