Alexander 23 Releases Lyric Video for “Sad”

Alexander 23 is a pop singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from LA who just released a lyric video for his newest track, “Sad.”

“The song is about the challenges of someone you love battling mental health issues. The line between helping and hurting can become so thin,” says Alexander 23.

With lyrics like, “Don’t know if I’m hurting or helping / It’s just so damn hard to tell when you’re just too good at being sad,” and “All I wanna do is take the sad from me you,” Alexander 23 perfectly tells the story of a person trying to help someone dealing with mental health issues.

Mental health is starting to be talked about more, but the person on the other side is never discussed as much.
