Lyrics

[Verse 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-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
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'

[Verse 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 when things weren't so complicated
All I need is to see your face

[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
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', mmm, yeah

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

[Chorus]
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', mmm, yeah

[Outro]
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
