Songs About Teenage Pregnancy
Recent years have seen a dramatic increase in the number of teenage pregnancies. Teenage pregnancies are never anyone’s choice. Girls who become pregnant as teenagers face severe stigma because of the negative attention society has traditionally given to this issue. These girls’ mental health is being negatively impacted by well-meaning but hurtful words from family, friends, and strangers alike.
Teenage pregnancy really isn’t the end of life and as such, girls who end up getting pregnant at their teenage age need even more care and courage.
Girls who experience this need a medium to express or let out their frustrations and that’s where this article comes in. In the following paragraphs, we’ll go through a number of songs about teenage pregnancies and their detailed lyrical interpretations. Playing these tunes should help you relax, at least that is my hope. Enjoy!
5 Songs About Teenage Pregnancy
1. “There goes my life” by Kenny Chesney
First on our list of songs about teenage pregnancy is “There goes my life” by Kenny Chesney. The narrator of this song is a man who must confront the reality that he and his partner are expecting a child against their will. When he initially hears the news, all that goes through his head is how it seems as though his life has been turned upside down.
From the moment the man’s daughter is born until the moment she leaves for college, the events of this tale are told in story form. The man’s life revolves around his daughter by the time the song comes to an end. This song illustrates how our goals in life shift dramatically as the years pass by.
“Unexpected fatherhood” is the overarching theme that Kenny Chesney addresses in his song “There Goes My Life,” and it is one that many men fear. Being a father is a serious responsibility that respectable men acknowledge and value. This respect, however, is tinged with apprehension due to the fact that the obligations of parenthood, when viewed from the perspective of a young man, can be rather intimidating.
The man in the song had fleeting dreams at the beginning of the song as he is giving up everything for his child, but the song ends with the complete opposite. The song ends with his grown daughter, who represents his entire world, driving away. In a similar vein, the song discusses being a father and lets the audience in on both the positive and negative aspects of fatherhood.
2. “Fall For Anything” by The Script
In “Fall for Anything,” Danny gives relationship advice to a girl, and a lot of it has to do with her being naive and getting taken advantage of in her romantic relationships.
Because she has a pattern of experiencing heartbreak and pain after a relationship that has ended badly, Danny tries his best to caution her against having one-night stands, giving too much of herself to men, and giving too much of herself to men.
If you can not stand up for yourself or for what you believe in, then anyone will be able to push you around and move you like a little Popsicle stick– this is basically what this song is all about. You are the only one who can decide what is good for you, and you should not let anyone tell you otherwise.
3. “Baby Mama” by Fantasia
Because it was composed as an anthem with the purpose of encouraging single mothers all over the United States particularly and the world at large to pursue their ambitions, the song holds a lot of significance for Fantasia.
Fantasia has claimed that the song “Baby Mama” is meant to be dedicated to “all of those single moms out there that fight it out to take care of the kids while also working two jobs and going to school.”
Some people think that the song gives the wrong impression to young people about having sexual relationships and having children. The term “baby mama” was used as the inspiration for the song’s title.
Rickey Smiley, the comedian, is the one who came up with the spoof version of the song. Indeed, this is one of Fantasia’s best records. She really poured out so much emotion into this single piece.
4. “Breathe (2am) ” by Anna Nalick
Anna had a friend, and she called her at 2 am to tell her the whole story about how she made a mistake by being with a man she was currently in a relationship with, and how she does not love this man but loves another man instead. Therefore, she is caught in a predicament in which a guy loves her, but she has feelings for someone else.
As a result, she is perplexed and looking for advice from her friend (Anna). It is as if your friend just called you and said all of these things, and you are advising her to calm down and take some deep breaths; to relax and take things easy.
To take it easy and ponder things through – something along those lines. Because once you make one mistake after another, you can never go back and fix the first one. In order for her to make the right decision, Anna is urging her to listen to and follow her heart.
5. “Two Pink Lines” by Eric Church
Last on our list of songs about teenage pregnancy is “Two Pink Lines” by Eric Church. This song is about the singer going out with a girl, having fun with her, and then later waiting for the results of a pregnancy test to find out if she is pregnant.
The characters of this song are a young man and woman who are anxiously awaiting the results of a pregnancy test. The narrator of the song is ruminating on the consequences of the test, but by the time the song comes to a close, it is evident that he would not change what has already taken place.
Eric Church, a country musician from the United States, is credited for co-writing and recording the song “Two Pink Lines.” It was the second single to be released from his debut album, Sinners Like Me, which was released that same year (2006). Church and Victoria collaborated to write the song.
