Day 4: Breathe

Day 4: Breathe

Here I am day four, and today I have the song Breathe by Michelle Branch to share with you. Michelle is just a music icon, from a young age she was writing her own songs and performing. Her music stands out because of the strong connections she makes with her lyrics and is able to relate them back to her audience.

I’ve been driving for an hour
Just talking to the rain
You say I’ve been driving you crazy
and its keeping you away
So just give me one good reason
Tell me why I should stay
‘Cause I don’t wanna waste another moment
in saying things we never meant to say

And I Take it just a little bit
I, hold my breath and count to ten
I, I’ve been waiting for a chance to let you in

If I just breathe
Let it fill the space between
I’ll know everything is alright
Breathe
Every little piece of me
You’ll see
Everything is alright
If I just breathe

Well it’s all so overrated
In not saying how you feel
So you end up watching chances fade
And wondering what’s real

And I Give you just a little time
I, Wonder if you realize
I’ve been waiting till I see it in your eyes

If I just breathe
Let it fill the space between
I’ll know everything is alright
Breathe,
Every little piece of me
You’ll see
Everything is alright
If I just breathe
Breathe

So I whisper in the dark,
Hoping you hear me
Do you hear me?

If I just breathe
Let it fill the space between 
I’ll know everything is alright
Breathe,
Every little piece of me
You’ll see
Everything is alright
Everything is alright if i just breathe… breathe

I’ve been driving for an hour 
Just talking to the rain

This song says to me that she is trying so hard to either make this relationship work or make it stop, and having a rather difficult time of it. In the chorus, I do agree that she’s kind of telling us how she’s coping. But she isn’t supposed to be with this guy for whatever reason, and really wants things to work out one way or another, but for now she’s just stuck in limbo.

For some people this will either be a song that plays on repeat in their head and for others it will be a getaway song, concealing their thoughts out of reality for a while, and enjoying a really meaningful music.
