Song Lyric Sunday – Big White Room by Jessie J

Fear is a pretty powerful thing. I find it interesting that some scary movies out there actually deal with overcoming fear even while they’re trying to scare you to death. Gotta love those jump-scares though. They get me almost every time.

I first started thinking about songs with zombies and other types of scary movie horrors, but then I came across this song this morning and I knew it was going to be my song. I remember the first time my daughter played it for me. We were in the car, driving home from school. I cried while I was listening to it. Not only does Jessie J sing it masterfully (especially in the live, acoustic version), but the lyrics are powerful. They don’t contain the word “fear”, but they do refer to a genuine fear that I’ve dealt with in the past.

I do hope you enjoy!

Sitting in a big white room alone
Tilt my head back, feel the tears fall down
Close my eyes to see in the dark
I feel young, broken, so, so scared
I don’t wanna be here anymore
I wanna be somewhere else
Normal and free, like I used to be
But I have to stay in this big white room
With little old me
I’m going crazy
I’m losing my mind
I’m going crazy
In this big white room of mine
I’m going crazy
I’m losing my mind
I’m going crazy
In this big white room of mine
Sitting in a big white room alone
Close the door
Don’t want the pain to come in
I clench my fist
And try to stay strong
I cry, feel sick
My heart is beating out of control
Can I run run faster than you
I wanna feel my body again
Feel the wind in my hair
But I have to stay in this big white room
‘Cause no one else cares, no
I’m going crazy
I’m losing my mind
I’m going crazy
In this big white room of mine
I’m going crazy
I’m losing my mind
I’m going crazy
In this big white room of mine
Everybody’s looking at me
Everybody’s staring at me
What do I do now
Smile, yeah
Everybody’s looking at me
Everybody’s staring at me
What do I do now
Smile, yeah
I’m going crazy
I’m losing my mind
I’m going crazy
In this big white room of mine
I’m going crazy
I’m losing my mind
I’m going crazy
In this big white room of mine
I’m going crazy
I’m losing my mind
I’m going crazy
In this big white room of mine
I’m going crazy
I’m losing my mind
I’m going crazy
In this big white room of mine

  1. I have to say that I have never been one to want to see scary movies. It’s just not a genre that got to me. I know so many people that do, however, and I do know how much they enjoy it. I am glad it created this week’s prompt.

    Not familiar with this song, but understand the sentiment.

  3. Sometimes I think we all feel like what these lyrics are saying. It’s not a good place, and she sings it with such passion.
    Oh, scary movies…I love them! Most seem kind of silly, at least the horror ones do, but the psychological thrillers are most scary to me.
    Thanks for a fun prompt today! 🙂

  4. I used to enjoy scary movies, but they play with my mind, so I do not watch them anymore. Powerful words, a wonderful singer. Thanks for sharing with us. Love you sweet girl!!

  5. I don’t do scary… ever. If there’s a zombie or buckets of blood involved – I’m a memory! Give me a great action/superhero movie or a wacky romantic comedy any day! LOL!

    Jessie has a POWERFUL voice and great delivery of the lyrics. Impressive.
