Breathe (2 AM) Lyrics

Songwriters: Anna C Nalick

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"

Give him time, 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

Well, it obviously isn't about a Grey's Anatomy episode because it was written in like , 2005 and if i'm not mistaken, that episode hadn't been made yet. I personally think that it's about a girl in a world, surrounded by people who are ignorant to the true meaning to life and don't understand life the way that she does. And because the people don't understand, they cast her out and she just have to "breathe" and wait for them to catch up and figure out what she's saying.

This song is her diary. People will find a way to bully her, but she just has to breathe through it. Everyone is making her feel like she's left otr. All she has to do is roll with the punches, let it roll right off your shoulders.

The BOMB episode of grey's anatomy in which it was played was very stressful. Has anyone even seen that episode? Or are you all writing all this stuff just like that? Well, if you haven't seen the episode ,you must see it as it is ver touching.It appeared in Season 2 Ep.- 17 As we Know it(Part 2).

She says these words are my diary screaming out loud (as in her own experiences) but i know you'll use them however you want to (as in put your own meaning into the lyrics).
