about

This is Barely Breathing, the first track from our new album, Drama Queen. We wrote this one about the end of a relationship. It's a very lonely, toxic place to be.

lyrics

Barely Breathing

Verse:

You always walk away when things are getting heavy
You always walk away when things are too rough
I'm always left behind just carrying your baggage
You're just a little boy who never grew up

But, Oh, where you going now?


Chorus:

You put it on me, You put it on me
When it all goes wrong, You put it on me

You put it on me, You put it on me
When it all goes down, You put it on me

When I needed a friend, you put it on me
When I needed someone...
When I asked you for help, you put it on me
Now I am done, and you can't put it on me


Verse 2:

You always smile at me when you're up to something
But I can see the truth behind your lyin' eyes
You always come at me with your cheap excuses
All of those things I've heard about a million times

But, Oh, not this time.



Chorus:

You put it on me, You put it on me
When it all goes wrong, You put it on me

You put it on me, You put it on me
When it all goes down, You put it on me

When I needed a friend, you put it on me
When I needed someone...
When I asked you for help, you put it on me
Now I am done, and you can't put it on me

Bridge:

Barely breathing, suffocating in a frozen wasteland
Barely breathing, hardly seeing who you were
Can't take a breath

Barely breathing, suffocating in a frozen wasteland
Barely breathing, hardly seeing who you were
Can't take a breath
