Song In My Head: Breathe In, Breathe Out

I don’t exactly remember why and when I downloaded this song on my phone but I think I heard on the radio, Shazam’d it and it’s been there for awhile but I only just really appreciated this song recently. Anyway, I don’t even know who Tich is, but her accent is British, so let’s assume she is because I couldn’t be bothered to research about her. I used to play this song while driving because my singing voice (or the lack thereof) sounds good especially during the BRIDGE part, and I also like to play the start of the song to my sisters who used to take the MRT (train) to work everyday–saying this should be on their playlist.
Breathe In, Breathe Out
Tich

Woke up too late for the train
Routine is always the same
Another day in a life like any other
I ran straight trough the rain
Saw your face when I felt the flame
Both knew it wasn’t a day like any other

We’re in a moment now
I can’t believe how

One touch, and suddenly I need you
Tough luck, won’t you tell me that it ain’t true
If you’re gonna push me
Promise you’ll break my fall

Oh, hold me close as I
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
I’m on the edge
Just take me now
And if you’ll gonna push me
Then promise you’ll break my fall

Face down, I hit the floor
Nothing to hide anymore
I’ve tried, but what is use ya
I was always
Looking from a Birdseye view
Dreaming of when I’d find you
But I know I will never be the same

We’re in a moment now
I can’t believe how

One touch, and suddenly I need you
Tough luck, won’t you tell me that it ain’t true
If you’re gonna push me
Promise you’ll break my fall

Oh, hold me close as I
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
I’m on the edge
Just take me now
And if you’ll gonna push me
Then promise you’ll break my fall

Breathe in, breathe out
Like a drug I can’t stop
Need you here, need you now
Cause you’ve got my heart
Breathe in, breathe out
Baby, forever free falling, free falling

One touch, and suddenly I need you
Tough luck, won’t you tell me that it ain’t true
If you’re gonna push me
Promise you’ll break my fall

Oh, hold me close as I
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
I’m on the edge
Just take me now
And if you’ll gonna push me
Then promise you’ll break my fall

Then promise you’ll break my fall…
Anyway, I realized it’s beautifully written despite it being upbeat, and I think it basically sums up how it is to be a girl when she meets a man for the first time. That was a long time ago for me, meeting a man you know, but I remember how it is to feel so excited that something is brewing but then at the same time you feel really anxious because FALLING in love can actually mean falling and hurting yourself.
Men have the tendency to do that, you know? They lay out all their cards and you place your bets, but you find out in the end that they’ve kept one card hidden. “If you’re gonna push me, just promise you’d break my fall”, isn’t that what a lot of girls say in the beginning? Please be careful with my heart because I am vulnerable. Please don’t make promises you cannot keep because I do not know where to go from here. Anyway, as a 30-something woman who has gone through so much, here is what I have to say about this: falling in love is really just like breathing, you let it in and out. Sometimes it will be fast, sometimes it will be hard, sometimes it will be free-flowing and one day, it will just stop. So no matter what the outcome, regardless of the inevitable failure, let yourself FREE FALL–but perhaps afford yourself enough cushion for the impact, just in case.
In other words, inasmuch as you would want to control everything, you can’t. There is no way that you can maneuver things to make it work your way. You can try… you can try to trick people through it, but what should happen, will happen. So “breathe in and breathe out”, and hope that the guy you’re with understands that when he pushes you, there’s a limit, and if you fall–he ought to be on the other end to catch you.

Are you ready to breathe in and breathe out?
