  1. Highlight Reel

From the recording Highlight Reel

Highlight Reel addresses the negative effects and illusions of social media. Bella wrote Highlight Reel when she caught herself falling into the social media delusion trap and realized it was hurting her mental wellbeing. This is the first single off her upcoming EP.

Lyrics

You used to be the place where I could be myself
But now you’re detrimental to my health (to my health)
Designer on your body, polished to a T
Everybody wants your reality

Gotta flaunt no flaws like a Barbie doll
Got a perfect picture double tap by all
But it’s just a movie you put out to see
That doesn’t make it hurt any less for me (less for me)

Highlight reel no it’s not real
But it still messes with my head
Highlight reel oh it makes me feel
Insecure why am I addicted?
Don’t know what you do to me
I’m so low why do I let you ruin me?
Highlight reel no its not real
So why do I compare myself to your reel?

Looking skinny in, your tiny bikini
I guess I won’t eat cause I need to compete (to compete)
I’m seeing happiness, but I’m feeling emptiness
Filtered and edited drowns my confidence

Gotta flaunt no flaws like a Barbie doll
Got a perfect picture double tap by all
But it’s just a movie you put out to see
That doesn’t make it hurt any less for me (less for me)

Highlight reel no it’s not real
But it still messes with my head
Highlight reel oh it makes me feel
Insecure why am I addicted?
Don’t know what you do to me
I’m so low why do I let you ruin me?
Highlight reel no its not real
So why do I compare myself to your reel?

Watch the time tick as I sit waiting for
The numbers to go up the hearts to show up
Feel bad when it stays flat, why don’t I look like that?
Why don’t I look like that? Why don’t I look like that?

Watch the time tick as I sit waiting for
The numbers to go up the hearts to show up
Feel bad when it stays flat, why don’t I look like that?
Why don’t I look like that? Why don’t I look like that?

Highlight reel no it’s not real
But it still messes with my head
Highlight reel oh it makes me feel
Insecure why am I addicted?
Don’t know what you do to me
I’m so low why do I let you ruin me?
Highlight reel no its not real
So why do I compare myself to your reel?
