Swedish singer Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson under the name Tove Lo has released 'Habits' on 25 March 2013 as her second single, on her debut extended play 'Truth Serum' and debut album" Queen Of The Clouds'. She then re-released the song on 6 December 2013 under the title "Habits (Stay High)". According to Tove, the song was written right after she was having a breakup. It is a pop song that depicts the protagonist's attempts to forget about her previous beau through alcohol and drugs.

"It all happened. my habit isn't go to sex clubs, but I have been. Some people have a problem with me portraying that ugliness, but that's the only way I can write." Tove Lo in interview with Qmagazine.

What I like about the song is that I can really feel what Tove has gone through during that period of time. The lyrics of  song sound really sad as the person is destroying herself with drugs and alcohols
 just so that she could forget about the relationship with her ex. What do you think about the song? Feel free to leave your opinions in the comments below. Enjoy the music video. Till then, au revoir! :)

Habits (Stay High) lyrics

I eat my dinner in my bathtub
Then I go to sex clubs
Watching freaky people gettin' it on
It doesn't make me nervous
If anything I'm restless
Yeah, I've been around and I've seen it all

I get home, I got the munchies
Binge on all my Twinkies
Throw up in the tub
Then I go to sleep
And I drank up all my money
Dazed and kinda lonely

You're gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I'm missing you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

Pick up daddies at the playground
How I spend my day time
Loosen up the frown,
Make them feel alive
Oh, make it fast and greasy
I'm numb and way too easy

You're gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I'm missing you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

Staying in my play pretend
Where the fun ain't got no end
Ooh
Can't go home alone again
Need someone to numb the pain
Ooh

Staying in my play pretend
Where the fun ain't got no end
Ooh
Can't go home alone again
Need someone to numb the pain

You're gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I'm missing you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
