Sia - Breathe Me



Artist: Sia
Track: Breathe Me
Album: Colour The Small One
Year: 2004

This is and probably always will be my favorite song by Sia. It was also the first one I ever knew by her. I love Sia's voice. There's just something so raw and effortless and beautiful about it. I feel like this song perfectly captures all of that. 

The instrumentals are simple with a beautiful piano line that is later joined by drums and violins and slowly builds up the emotion of the song. The piano alone can make me teary. To me, Sia's voice is the main focus of the song, which I absolutely love. Then the instrumentals have their own dramatic solo at the end. I just love everything about this song! 
Also, this may be a weird thing to like, but I rather like the big sigh she takes at the very beginning of the song before she begins to sing.

LYRICS:

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
I 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
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
