Anna Nalick - Breathe (2 AM) Wrote:
2 AM and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake
"Can you help me unravel my latest mistake?
I don't love him, winter just wasn't my season"

Yeah we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to criticize
Hypocrites, you're all here for the very same reason

And ‘cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, girl
So cradle your head in your hands

And breathe, just breathe
Oh breathe, just breathe

In May he turned 21 on the base at Fort Bliss
"Just a Day," he said down to the flask in his fist
"Ain't been sober, since maybe October of last year"

Here in town you can tell he's been down for awhile
But, my God, it's so beautiful when the boy smiles
Wanna hold him, maybe I'll just sing about it

'Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, boys
So cradle your head in your hands

And breathe, just breathe
Oh breathe, just breathe

There's a light at each end of this tunnel
You shout 'cause you're just as far in as you'll ever be out
And these mistakes you've made, you'll just make them again
If you only try turning around

2 AM and I'm still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, it's no longer
Inside of me threatening the life it belongs to

And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
'Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you'll use them however you want to

But you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button now
Sing it if you understand

And breathe, just breathe
Whoa breathe, just breathe
Oh breathe, just breathe
Oh breathe, just breathe


I like singing this.

    I forgot about that song...I kinda wanna do a cover of it when my cables come in and I grow a big enough pair to be in front of a camera smilies/icon_sweatdrop.gif

    You? Shy to be in front of the camera? That seems silly.

    I have the beat down on the keyboard. owo;

    Yeah, I'm pretty much only cool with being that focused on if I go out of my way to personally make it happen...

    I have a keyboard, but I've only ever messed with it semi-seriously for like an hour or two total (everything else has been hitting a note or two and playing very simple songs by ear after several attempts lol )

    That picture of you rolling down a hill definitely seems like you really tried to get the picture. At least, I hope you did. Otherwise, do you have a camera crew that rolls with you?
    ...Personally, that would be awesome. I want a rolly polly camera crew...

    I pick up on sounds fairly well. I could play the Halloween theme song by ear. Also picked up on Exorcist and Good Enough by Evanescence.

    XD It was a still from like a 10-second video of me rolling down a hill.

    I can pick up sounds pretty well, too, but I don't remember lyrics all that well... n_n;;

    So not just a picture, but a short video? Psh, totally not camera shy. smilies/icon_razz.gif

    I've caught myself mouthing or even saying/singing words to a song once I recognize it. Each song you played on Guitar Hero was like that. smilies/icon_razz.gif
