Lyrics:

Most crawl
Before they walk
I ran
I had to do it all
And now I’m stumbling

Most cry
Before they speak
I sang
Overworked from the start
And now I’m gasping

I’m learning to breathe
It’s alright, it’s okay
Breathe
Take it in, let it out
I’m learning to breathe
In and out.

Most taste
Before they eat
I swallowed down
Everything that I’d seen
And now I’m choking.

I’m learning to breathe
It’s alright, it’s okay
Breathe
Take it in, let it out
I’m learning to breathe
It’s alright, it’s okay
Breathe
Take it in, let it out
I’m learning to breathe
In and out.
Breathe
In and out.

Took my ambitions higher
Than they should have gone.
I thought they would lift me up,
They only tied me down.
I took in a breath of air
I felt it fill my lungs.
And oh, somehow I’m floating.

I’m learning to breathe
It’s alright, it’s okay
Breathe
Take it in, let it out
I’m learning to breathe
It’s alright, it’s okay
Breathe
Take it in, let it out
I’m learning to breathe
In and out.
Breathe
In and out.
