Breathe
Anna Nalick Lyrics


2 AM and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake
"Can you help me unravel my latest mistake?
I don't love him, winter just wasn't my season"

Yeah we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to criticize
Hypocrites, you're all here for the very same reason

And 'cause you can't jump the track,
We're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, girl
So cradle your head in your hands

And breathe, just breathe
Oh breathe, just breathe

In May he turned 21 on the base at Fort Bliss
"Just a day," he said down to the flask in his fist
"Ain't been sober, since maybe October of last year"

Here in town you can tell he's been down for a while
But, my God, it's so beautiful when the boy smiles
Wanna hold him, maybe I'll just sing about it

'Cause you can't jump the track
We're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, boys
So cradle your head in your hands

And breathe, just breathe
Oh breathe, just breathe

There's a light at each end of this tunnel
You shout 'cause you're just as far in as you'll ever be out
And these mistakes you've made, you'll just make them again
If you only try turning around

2 AM and I'm still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, it's no longer
Inside of me threatening the life it belongs to

And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
'Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you'll use them however you want to

But you can't jump the track
We're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button now
Sing it if you understand

And breathe, just breathe
Oh breathe, just breathe
Oh breathe, just breathe
Oh breathe, just breathe

Oh, breathe, just breathe

This song has become the signature song for remembering my Mom

She died 11 months ago of COPD
She couldnt breathe on her own
I played this song at het services
And every day since its my new
Jam to remembering my mom

Thank you Anna
You gave me an outlet to survive thee most painful loss of my life

I absolutely love this song but the fact that they censor the words “flask” and “sober” is just freaking ridiculous

John Dorcic

Agreed

That would be fantastic. They’d finally self immolate.

@John Dorcic Then don't watch it. That's their choice. Changing the artists song because of someone else's religion is stupid.

this is my “anti anxiety” song. i got the word “breathe” tattooed on the inside of my pinky and just sing this song in my head when i feel like i’m about to have a panic attack

Jennifer Hammer

It does work. I think she meant for that to happen. Amazing song and video

Jazzy Lorraine

I have anxiety real bad & this made me tear up🥲 I’m going through a lot right now I always have panic attacks. I don’t have any tattoos but now I want to get “Breathe” tatted on me 😊

Devare Wilson

Nice!! Too bad my anti-anxiety song is " Xanax." Life is fucked up isn't it? Pandemics, WW3(almost), social injustices, suicides, wealth gaps, fake news, heartaches, death in general, animal cruelty, a total disregard for the environment, it sucks! Aside from the Xanax bars, my anti-anxiety song(s) is "Moonlight Sonata," followed by " One more time," Daft Punk, and then I throw on a Chakra binaural(just whatever I feel I need to work on at the time) and then comes the sun and all the bullshit is recycled, or rinse and repeat rather

babyimastar🤟🏼

this is a good idea
