Anna Nalick - Breathe (3am)

Recommended Posts

Please help me-- I have become obsessed with finding this song and I don't have much info to go on. I just heard a snippet on the radio, and I don't even have the exact lyrics. It is sung by a female and it says something about waking up in the middle of the night and needing to write down words before they "take the life that made them" or that created them or something like that. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

It sounds like Anna Nalicks song Breathe (3am). The part that matches what you wrote goes:

2Am and I'm still awake writing this song

If i get it all down on paper it's no longer inside of me threaten' the life it belongs to.

You can listen to the entire song HERE.

Full lyrics:

2 Am and she calls me cause I'm still awake

Can you help me unravel my latest mistake

I don't love him and winter just wasn't my season.

Yea 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.

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 just cradle your head in your hands.

And breathe, just breathe, whoa breathe just breathe

May he turned 21 on the base of Fort Bliss

Just today he sat 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 while

But my God it's so beautiful when the boy smiles

Wanna hold him but 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, whoa breath just breathe

There's a light at the 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'll only try turnin' around

2Am and I'm still awake writing this song

If i get it all down on paper it's no lonmger inside of me threaten' the life it belongs to.

And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd

Cause these words are my diary screamin' out aloud

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...yeah breath

Just breathe, ohho breathe,
