Sia “Breathe Me” (Ballad/Sad Song) [Music/Track]

Year: 2006
Genre: Sad Songs/Ballad
From: The album “Colour the Small One

“Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And the worst part is there’s no one else to blame”

“Breathe Me” is the lead single from Sia’s third studio album Colour the Small One. It’s a sad, orchestral ballad about being in depression and needing a friend for comfort. It was introduced to me at the series endings of HBO’s amazing five season Six Feet Under. It always get me in an extreme melancholic mode, thinking about life & death, what’s the point of everything (if any), how we don’t really appreciate friends and family until it’s too late.

Sia told ilikemusic.com about recording this track:

It always felt like a good song that one. Sam and Felix had put the drums and bass down, they played it all live together one night after they’d been to dinner, and I was really sick with flu and I walked in the next day and the track was there without me singing on it and it was just so sleek. I don’t really listen to my own music. I don’t think most people listen to their own music after they’ve recorded it. Some of my musician friends get really anal and listen to it all the time, analyzing it. But once I’ve done it, I listen to it once and put it to bed, but with that one I was like, “yeah! Again! Again!”

“Breathe Me” introduced Sia to the United States, years before her smash single “Chandelier”. It received attention after being used for the finale of Six Feet Under. It continued to pop up on television over the years, including: Veronica MarsThe HillsOrange Is the New Black, and even a Coca-Cola commercial for the 2010 Winter Olympics.

The music video was shot in a London theme hotel and was composed from 2500+ Polaroid stills.

“Breathe Me”

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