Lyrics

I’m the strong one, I’m not nervous
I’m as tough as the crust of the Earth is
I move mountains, I move churches
And I glow, ’cause I know what my worth is
I don’t ask how hard the work is
Got a rough indestructible surface
Diamonds and platinum, I find ’em, I flatten ’em
I take what I’m handed, I break what’s demanded, but

Under the surface
I feel berserk as a tightrope walker in a three-ring circus
Under the surface
Was Hercules ever like, “Yo, I don’t wanna fight Cerberus?”
Under the surface
I’m pretty sure I’m worthless if I can’t be of service

A flaw or a crack
The straw in the stack
That breaks the camel’s back
What breaks the camel’s back, it’s

Pressure, like a drip, drip, drip that’ll never stop, whoa
Pressure that’ll tip, tip, tip ’til you just go pop, whoa, oh, oh
Give it to your sister, your sister’s older
Give her all the heavy things we can’t shoulder
Who am I if I can’t run with the ball?
If I fall to

Pressure like a grip, grip, grip, and it won’t let go, whoa
Pressure like a tick, tick, tick ’til it’s ready to blow, whoa, oh, oh
Give it to your sister, your sister’s stronger
See if she can hang on a little longer
Who am I if I can’t carry it all?
If I falter

Under the surface
I hide my nerves, and it worsens, I worry something is gonna hurt us
Under the surface
The ship doesn’t swerve as it heard how big the iceberg is
Under the surface
I think about my purpose, can I somehow preserve this?

Line up the dominoes
A light wind blows
You try to stop it tumbling
But on and on it goes

But wait, if I could shake the crushing weight of expectations
Would that free some room up for joy
Or relaxation, or simple pleasure?
Instead, we measure this growing pressure
Keeps growing, keep going
‘Cause all we know is

Pressure like a drip, drip, drip that’ll never stop, whoa
Pressure that’ll tip, tip, tip ’til you just go pop, whoa-oh-oh
Give it to your sister, it doesn’t hurt, and
See if she can handle every family burden
Watch as she buckles and bends but never breaks
No mistakes, just

Pressure like a grip, grip, grip, and it won’t let go, whoa
Pressure like a tick, tick, tick ’til it’s ready to blow, whoa, oh, oh
Give it to your sister and never wonder
If the same pressure would’ve pulled you under
Who am I if I don’t have what it takes?
No cracks, no breaks
No mistakes, no pressure

Team Review

  • To me, the best part is that Mirabel isn’t ever afraid of Luisa. She shows confusion and concern when Luisa starts freaking out, but Luisa is never treated as a freak or monster. Instead, Mirabel clings to her sister for comfort and protection. I love it.
  • This song makes me burst into uncontrollable tears and sobbing. I spent about seven years of my life being emotional support for my family and directing a mentally and emotionally abusive man’s attention to myself to hopefully give my younger siblings some space to grow. I know, not the smartest thing, but it was all I could do as a middle and high schooler. I was never the best, but I endured being called names, told I would never amount to much, and denying the depression that resulted from loneliness amidst loved ones. I don’t think I’ll ever get over water being poured over my head — one of the few times his abuse turned physical. My mother turned a blind eye to all of it until I moved out, when everyone else saw how bad he was without me as a buffer. It’s not the worst life, but I haven’t fully recovered, and neither has my family. Luckily, that guy is out of the picture, so everyone is able to move on. Now one of my siblings knows my side, but others may harbor grudges from when I first left them alone. I still deal with feeling responsible for them, and guilt for leaving, but I continue to remind myself it was probably better that way — plus, my mental health matters, too, though I don’t always act like it.
  • Give it to your sister and never wonder if the same pressure would have pulled you under….”
  • The lyrics of this song are just incredible The Rhymes, rhythm, variety; the lyric changes, tempo, crescendo, demonstrating the lyrics and pressure building, the tone and impression of the end of the song “no pressure”:: the metaphors; each and every word, every note, serves to show you more of the story. I truly think this is the #1 Disney song to date.
