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 guess I over complicate, people tell me to medicate

[Pre-Chorus]
Feel my blood running, swear the sky's falling
I know that all 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 everytime

[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 and through the clouds
Doing it up there can be so loud
You remind me of the time when things weren't so complicated
All I need is to see your face

[Pre-Chorus]
Feel my blood running, swear the sky's falling
I know that all 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 everytime

[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]
Mmm ah, mmm ah, yeah
Mmm ah, mmm ah, yeah
Mmm ah, mmm ah, yeah, ah, yeah
Mmm ah, mmm ah, yeah
Mmm ah, mmm ah, yeah
Mmm ah, mmm ah, yeah, 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 running, swear the sky's falling
I keep on breathing
Time goes by and I can't control my mind
I keep on breathing, mmm, yeah
