Even though her nose swollen and eye was closed
I told her keep her head up

from Big KRIT – Down & Out Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

People with facial injuries, especially if the injuries are inflicted by their lover, typically try to cover them up somehow.

Also, KRIT cleverly mentions a ‘swollen nose’ as one of the women’s injuries. An injury that would infact require the tilting back of her head in order to keep her nose from bleeding.
