​​breathin Lyrics

[Intro]
Cigam gnihtemos od ot
Thgin laiceps ruoy s'thginot tub


[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'
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 every time

[Chorus]
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'


[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'
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 every time

[Chorus]
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


[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'
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


[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

About “​​breathin”

On “breathin”, Ariana sings about days when her anxiety makes it seem as if the “sky’s falling” and “things just take way too much of [her] energy,” but she finds the courage in herself to keep “breathin” through it.

Ariana appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show once the album was released and described more in depth what the track was truly about.

‘Breathin’ is about breathing …when you’re anxious. It’s about anxiety and feeling like you can’t …you know, when you can’t get a full breath. It’s like the worst feeling in the whole world. It’s a song about that feeling…I was having lots of [anxiety attacks]. We were in the studio, we were writing and I was like, ‘Ugh can’t breathe.’ And they were like, ‘We’re going to write this song.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I still can’t breathe, but we’ll write it.’"

The track is is the ninth track from Ariana Grande’s fourth album, Sweetener. The track was teased in her “No Tears Left To Cry” music video and was alluded to again in the “No Tears Left To Cry (BTS – Part 2)” video. The song reached #1 on the US iTunes singles chart on August 19, 2018.

Following the song’s success across charts and it being uploaded to Grande’s YouTube channel, “breathin” is expected to be released as the album’s 3rd single in the near future.

A music video released on November 7, 2018 which contains words such as “Needy” and “Imagine”. These words are speculated to be teasing the track-list of “thank u, next”, her fifth album.
