breathin
Ariana Grande Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Some days, things just take way too much of my energy
I look up and the whole room's spinning
You take my cares away
I can so overcomplicate, people tell me to medicate

Feel my blood runnin', swear the sky's fallin'
How do I know if this shit's fabricated?
Time goes by and I can't control my mind
Don't know what else to try, but you tell me every time

Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, keep on breathin'
Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, keep on breathin'

Sometimes it's hard to find, find my way up into the clouds
Tune it out, they can be so loud
You remind me of a time when things weren't so complicated
All I need is to see your face

Feel my blood runnin', swear the sky's fallin'
How do I know if this shit's fabricated, oh?
Time goes by and I can't control my mind
Don't know what else to try, but you tell me every time

Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, I keep on breathin'
Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, I keep on breathin', mmm, yeah

My, my air
My, my air
My, my air, my air
My, my air
My, my air
My, my air, yeah

Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, I keep on breathin'
Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, I keep on breathin', mmm, yeah

Feel my blood runnin', swear the sky's fallin'
I keep on breathin'




Time goes by and I can't control my mind
I keep on breathin', mmm, yeah

Overall Meaning

The song "breathin" by Ariana Grande is a powerful anthem about anxiety and perseverance. It describes the feeling of being overwhelmed and out of control and the importance of taking deep breaths and pushing through. The opening lines of the song capture this feeling perfectly: "Some days, things just take way too much of my energy, I look up and the whole room's spinning." This feeling of being dizzy and drained is one that many people with anxiety can relate to.


The song goes on to describe the struggle to find a sense of control when everything seems to be spinning out of control. Grande sings about the temptation to medicate as a way to cope with anxiety and the frustration of not knowing what is real and what is just in her head. Despite these challenges, she turns to the one constant in her life: her breath. She repeats the lyrics "Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'" as a mantra to remind herself to stay present and grounded.

She encourages listeners to keep breathing as a way to stay connected to the moment and find strength in the present. The song is a powerful reminder of the importance of self-care and finding healthy ways to cope with anxiety.

Some days, things just take way too much of my energy
Alguns dias, as coisas apenas tomam muito da minha energia

I look up and the whole room's spinning
Eu olho para cima e toda a sala está girando

You take my cares away
Você leva embora minhas preocupações

I can so overcomplicate, people tell me to medicate
Eu posso ser tão complicada, as pessoas me dizem para me medicar


Feel my blood runnin', swear the sky's fallin'
Sinto meu sangue correndo, juro que o céu está caindo

How do I know if this shit's fabricated?
Como eu sei se essa merda é inventada?

Time goes by, and I can't control my mind
O tempo passa, e eu não consigo controlar minha mente

Don't know what else to try, but you tell me every time
Não sei mais o que tentar, mas você me diz todas as vezes


Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
Apenas continue respirando e respirando e respirando e respirando

And oh, I gotta keep, keep on breathin'
E, oh, tenho que continuar, continuar respirando

Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
Apenas continue respirando e respirando e respirando e respirando

And oh, I gotta keep, keep on breathin'
E, oh, tenho que continuar, continuar respirando


Sometimes it's hard to find, find my way up into the clouds
Às vezes é difícil encontrar, encontrar meu caminho para as nuvens

Tune it out, they can be so loud
Ignore, pessoas podem ser tão barulhentas

You remind me of a time when things weren't so complicated
Você me lembra do tempo em que as coisas não eram tão complicadas

All I need is to see your face
Tudo que eu preciso é ver seu rosto


Feel my blood runnin', swear the sky's fallin'
Sinto meu sangue correndo, juro que o céu está caindo

How do I know if this shit's fabricated, oh?
Como eu sei se essa merda é inventada? Oh

Time goes by and I can't control my mind
O tempo passa e eu não consigo controlar minha mente

Don't know what else to try, but you tell me every time
Não sei mais o que tentar, mas você me diz todas as vezes


Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
Apenas continue respirando e respirando e respirando e respirando

And oh, I gotta keep, I keep on breathin'
E, oh, tenho que continuar, continuar respirando

Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
Apenas continue respirando e respirando e respirando e respirando

And oh, I gotta keep, I keep on breathin', mmm, yeah
E, oh, tenho que continuar, continuar respirando, mmm, sim


My, my air
Meu, meu ar

My, my air

This song is definitely the definition of “when you’re happy you enjoy the music, when you’re sad you understand the lyrics”

@majo9873

I wish I could thank Ariana Grande in person for creating this inspiring song. This song literally saved me from ending my life because my best friend threw me out of his life and made me feel like i didnt matter. But after listening to this song on repeat for 9 hours straight just thinking about my life and how much meaning it has. I realized how dumb I was for trying to end it all. So thank you Ariana for saving my life.

@anthonyrussell4888

I understand the impulse but I'm so glad you made a different decision. I hope your life has more triumphs than challenges.:)

@JudyCerda

I'm so glad you are still alive and let yourself be helped. Music is always a healer and there's always a way to make your life work no matter who is in it.
