Music Lyrics #2 – Breathe Me (Sia)


It’s that time again to share some lyrics that mean so much to me when I need them to. These lyrics by Sia I first heard at the end of the final episode of “Six Feet Under”, a show that was on HBO. I recall that I wept powerfully listening to them and watching the final footage. If you didn’t see the show, it’s hard to explain what you are seeing if you watch the video. The show was about a family that ran a mortuary.

During the opening of each show, you watched the death of someone who they would then care for to burial. The final episode, during this song, you then saw how each of the main characters lives ended. It is one of my favorite shows and many of the actors went on to do great work. It was so very powerful. Then I listened to the lyrics of this song and realized the other power they have. Thank you, Sia for Breathe Me.

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And the worst part is there’s no one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Ouch I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah I think that I might break
I’ve lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me
