Be my friend, hold me
Wrap me up, unfold me
I am small, and needy
Warm me up, and breathe me -“Breathe Me”
Sia is my absolute favorite artist and someone who is truly gifted in music.
Sia once said that "'Breathe Me' is about feeling worried, generally anxious. Being overwhelmed by your own inner dialogue and having some sort of conniption fit and potentially doing yourself some harm, then asking for help."
I once struggled with self image and self worth, causing me to make some dangerous and irrational decisions, so it's a song I deeply connect with.
Sia also said that the very night she wrote Breathe Me, she attempted suicide by taking 22 Valium and downing a bottle of vodka.
To think that such a wonderful person wouldn't have been alive to impact the world in the way that she has and that such a powerful song wouldn’t exist if she were to have died that night is heartbreaking. - 2 minutes ago
