breathin - Ariana Grande




The Experience: You tell me every time just keep breathin'... When your friends are the lifeline you need...


Music video: The first video showcased a baby pig wandering around on top of the blankets as Ariana lazes in bed offscreen, offering low expectations and efforts for when just breathin' seems like an accomplishment. The music video offers a collection of feelings that accompany times when just breathin is an accomplishment. Regret - Ariana Grande alone at the bar. Loneliness - Ariana as the rest of the worlds speeds by. Uncertainty - Ariana lost in the mists. Journey - Ariana alone with her luggage waiting for her train. And hope - Ariana swinging in the clouds and sunshine.

The Meaning of breathin: Friendship supplies much needed support when things just take way too much of my energy. When the whole room's spinning and you swear the sky's fallin' mere acquaintances might take the easy way out, distance themselves and tell me to medicate. But true friends will always be there to take my cares away and tell me to just keep breathin'. 

Ask yourself: How many faithful friends support you right now?

Album: Sweetener (2018)

LYRICS:


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 sh-t'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 sh-t'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
