HAYLEY KIYOKO | SLEEPOVER

March 12, 2017

She's back at it again with her newest music video for, 'Sleepover', a video that completely encompasses the importance of representation in the music industry for queer individuals who have only a handful of idols to look up to in the media.  Not even just look up to but to inspire and generate a feeling of, "I am okay being me and I will never apologize for that."

 

We can only hope that Hayley Kiyoko continues this inspirational and daunting path to create a sense of hope among these hard time's we're all dealing with in the world around us.  

 

 

Hayley goes to show us with this video that she is against the norm and proud.  She shows us how complicated relationships can be, how hard it can be when you're queer and you don't know how to tell the person you like.  The stages shown in this video, represent beauty, pain, heartbreak, and a sense of risk that comes with it all.  

 

From Paper Magazine: "Hayley Kiyoko, a Los Angeles-based singer and actress, does an excellent job of capturing that particular brand of unrequited desire from a close friend in her music video for new single "Sleepover." Hayley's song talks about having a slumber party with a friend while secretly imagining it turning into something more. "But at least I got you in my head," she sings on the song's chorus."

 

I don't wanna talk about it
I don't wanna think about it
I'm just feeling low, feeling low
Even when you're next to me
It's not the way I’m picturing
I'm just feeling low, feeling low
You wanna be friends forever?
I can think of something better
I'm just feeling low, feeling low
Sleeping here right next to me
But will you ever mess with me? No

 

[Chorus]
But at least I got you in my head, oh yeah
At least I got you in my head, in my head
Sleepovers in my bed, oh yeah
At least I got you in my head, in my head
In my head
In my head

 

[Verse 2]
Always there to brush your hair
Help you pick out what to wear
I just feel alone, feel alone
You will never understand
Even when you hold my hand
I just feel alone, feel alone
I don't wanna talk about it
I don't wanna think about it
I just feel alone, feel alone
Even when you're next to me
It's not the way I'm picturing, no
