NF Songs for Every Occasion

September 22, 2019

Okay so not every occasion but most occasions; “Every occasion” sounded a lot better than “most occasions.”

Anyway, I wanted to do something a little different today. I don’t know if I’ve ever really talked about this before, but I am a huge fan of NF. Like, HUGE.

The other day, I found myself starting a journey of listening to all four of NF’s studio albums he recorded under Capitol Christian Music Group (Mansion, Therapy Session, Perception, The Search). As I was listening to them, I realized how each of his songs can personally relate to anyone’s situation/occasion so I decided to list NF songs that could relate to different occasions.

I hope that makes sense.

Before we hop into it, I wanted to say
A) this isn’t a complete list of all his songs (but they all have lyrics that are relatable)
B) this is based on personal opinion and experiences

Mansion

INTRO
When you’ve overcome obstacles and are starting to feel yourself

I’m not so sure about the occasion/vibe I got from this one. I didn’t know the best way to explain it, but after listening to it, I hope you understand what I was trying to say.

MANSION FT. FLEURIE
When you’re stuck in your head and can’t get out

This one speaks to me on an incredibly deep level because I get stuck in my head at least once a day.

ALL I HAVE
When you’re crazy enough to make your passion your career/your passions are all you have

Again, I didn’t really know how to explain it, but if you listen to the song, hopefully you’ll understand what I’m trying to say.

MOTIVATED
When you need motivation

I’LL KEEP ON FT. JEREMIAH CARLSON
When you’re feeling defeated but know the Lord is on your side

Any time I’m feeling down and doubtful, I listen to this song; it helps me keep going.

Therapy Session

I JUST WANNA KNOW
When a good relationship goes bad

HOW COULD YOU LEAVE US
When you lose a loved one

I can’t listen to this without crying.

GOT YOU ON MY MIND
When you’re developing a crush/falling in love

For me, there are lyrics in this song that describe exactly what it’s like when you can’t get someone you’re falling in love with/developing a crush on out of your head.

ALL I DO
When you’re passionate about your passion

Again, I don’t really know how to explain it, but you’ll understand when you listen to the song (if you listen to the song).

Perception

OUTCAST
When you’re different/feeling different from everyone else/an outcast

LET YOU DOWN
When your parents have failed as parents (or any important figure in your life)

This one hits close to home every freaking time.

DESTINY
When you’re following God’s plan/purpose for your life

IF YOU WANT LOVE
When you’re seeking love (a kind that’s deeper than a romantic, honeymoon phase love)

The Search

LEAVE ME ALONE
When you want to be left alone

Honestly, it’s self-explanatory.

CHANGE
When you want change

(Whether it be personal, in the community, the world, etc.)

MY STRESS
When you’re stressed out and need to relax

Literally me the entire time I’m in college

TIME
When you’re going through a rough patch in a relationship

WHEN I GROW UP
When you’re dreaming big

LET ME GO
When the little voice inside your head is overpowering

I relate to this on a deep level.

HATE MYSELF
When you’re feeling guilty/hating yourself

To me, his one is kind of a combination of both, so I couldn’t put my nose on exactly what this song is about.

I MISS THE DAYS
When you miss the happier times/younger days


If you’re a fan of NF, did I get some of the songs right, or are there any songs you listen to that you can relate to like no other? NF’s music speaks to my soul, and I want nothing but the best for him.
