"Breathin" riguarda la respirazione quando sei ansioso. Riguarda l'ansia e la sensazione di non riuscire a respirare a fondo. È come la peggiore sensazione di tutto il mondo. È una canzone su quella sensazione, stavo avendo molti [attacchi d'ansia]. Eravamo in studio, stavamo scrivendo ed ero tipo "Ugh non riesco a respirare". E loro hanno detto "Scriveremo questa canzone". Ed io "Ok, non riesco ancora a respirare, ma la scriveremo".

–  Ariana al The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon[1]

Testo Modifica

[Verso 1]
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 over-complicate, people tell me to medicate

[Pre-ritornello]
Feel my blood runnin', swear the sky's fallin'
I know that all this shit's fabricated, mmm
Time goes by and I can't control my mind
Don't know what else to try, but you tell me every time…

[Ritornello]
Just keep breathin and breathin and breathin and breathin
I know I gotta keep, keep on breathin
Just keep breathin and breathin and breathin and breathin
I know I gotta keep, keep on breathin, mmmm

[Verso 2]
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 (You remind me of a time) when things weren't so complicated
All I need is to see your face (All I need is to see your face)

[Pre-ritornello]
Feel my blood runnin', swear the sky's fallin'
I know that all this shit's fabricated, mmm
Time goes by and I can't control my mind
Don't know what else to try, but you tell me every time…

[Ritornello]
Just keep breathin and breathin and breathin and breathin
I know I gotta keep, I keep on breathin
Just keep breathin and breathin and breathin and breathin
I know I gotta keep, I keep on breathin, mmmm, yeah

[Bridge]
My, my air
My, my air
My, my air, my air
My, my air
My, my air
My, my air, yeah

[Ritornello]
Just keep breathin and breathin and breathin and breathin (Now)
I know I gotta keep (I know I gotta keep), I keep on breathin (I keep on breathin)
Just keep breathin and breathin and breathin and breathin (Breathin and breathin and breathin and breathin)
I know I gotta keep (Oh, yeah), I keep on breathin, mmmm (Oooh), yeah (Yeah)

[Outro]
Feel my blood runnin' (I feel my blood runnin), swear the sky's fallin' (Ooh, woah, yeah)
I keep on breathin (Oh, yeah)
Time goes by and I can't control my mind (And I can't control my mind, yeah)
I keep on breathin (I keep on breathin), mmm (Ooh), yeah (Yeah)
