Here Are the Lyrics to Ariana Grande's 'Breathin'

Dave Meyers
Ariana Grande

"Breathin" is Ariana Grande's third single from her latest studio album, Sweetener. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart back in August, making it Grande's third time taking the top spot. The album also includes her current hits "No Tears Left to Cry" and "God Is a Woman" which have so far peaked at No. 3 and No. 8 on the Hot 100, respectively.

"Breathin" has an upbeat pop beat and her lyrics motivate listeners to "just keep breathin'" when times are tough. Grande herself has been through a whirlwind these past few months, including the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller in September and her recent split from fianc√© Pete Davison. Grande released a simple music video for the song, which features her pet pig, Piggy Smalls.

Check out the full lyrics and music video below:

Some days, things just take way too much of my energy
I look up and the whole room's spinning
You take my cares away
I can so overcomplicate, people tell me to medicate

Feel my blood runnin', swear the sky's fallin'
How do I know if this shit's fabricated?
Time goes by and I can't control my mind
Don't know what else to try, but you tell me every time

Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, keep on breathin'
Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, keep on breathin'

Sometimes it's hard to find, find my way up into the clouds
Tune it out, they can be so loud
You remind me of a time when things weren't so complicated
All I need is to see your face

Feel my blood runnin', swear the sky's fallin'
How do I know if this shit's fabricated, oh?
Time goes by and I can't control my mind
Don't know what else to try, but you tell me every time

Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, I keep on breathin'
Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, I keep on breathin', mmm, yeah

My, my air
My, my air
My, my air, my air
My, my air
My, my air
My, my air, yeah

Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, I keep on breathin'
Just keep breathin' and breathin' and breathin' and breathin'
And oh, I gotta keep, I keep on breathin', mmm, yeah

Feel my blood runnin', swear the sky's fallin'
I keep on breathin'
Time goes by and I can't control my mind
I keep on breathin', mmm, yeah
