Anna Nalick - Breathe (2 AM) Lyrics




2 AM and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake,
"Can you help me unravel my latest mistake?
I don't love him. Winter just wasn't my season."

Yeah we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to criticize.
Hypocrites, you're all here for the very same reason

'Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, girl.
So cradle your head in your hands
And breathe... just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe

May he turn 21 on the base at Fort Bliss
Just today he sat down to the flask in his fist,
Ain't been sober, since maybe October of last year.

Here in town you can tell he's been down for a while,
But, my God, it's so beautiful when the boy smiles,
Wanna hold him. Maybe I'll just sing about it.

'Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable,
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table.
No one can find the rewind button, boys,
So cradle your head in your hands,
And breathe... just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe

There's a light at each end of this tunnel,
You shout 'cause you're just as far in as you'll ever be out
And these mistakes you've made, you'll just make them again
If you'd only try turning around.

2 AM and I'm still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, it's no longer inside of me,
Threatening the life it belongs to

And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
'Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you'll use them, however you want to

But you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable,
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button now
Sing it if you understand.
And breathe, just breathe
Whoa breathe, just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe.

    This isn't an "accident". This is the result.

    This is a very beuatiful song!.........😜

  25. TiTs McGee

    We are, we are. The youth of a nation

  26. Hank Harrison

    Ah, such poetry; it's always such a great thing to hear pop with haunting lyrics like this.

  27. twylock

    Thumbs up if you love this song!
    Thumbs up if you miss the early 2000s!
    Thumbs up if you have great memories of this song!
    Thumbs up if you love life!
    Thumbs up if you fear your own mortality!
    Thumbs up if you see him coming
    Thumbs up if you hear him break the window in the next room to get in
    Thumbs up if you run when he nears your room
    Thumbs up if you know you're not fast enough to escape him but you're in denial and keep making futile attempts to save your own life
    *Thumbs up if he finds you*

  28. Olivia Acevedo

    I am listening to this in 2019 and it is literally giving me epic nostalgia that the feels came in.

  29. 2019, anyone??

  30. Casey B

    Thanks for the greys anatomy spoilers!

  31. Kelly Robinson

    i love this song

  32. Maggie O'Brien

    listening to this because I'm crying my eyes because of my parents and they couldn't care less-- like usual

  33. Ally Son

    This'll definitely get lost in the endless sea of *"anyone here in/from (insert redundant year/tv show here)* comments, but this song is my life.

    It's brought peace to my restless mind as a child, and brings the same peace and nostalgia to me as it used to, every time I listen to it. It was my mom's favorite, used to pay it in the car all the time. Now it's my favorite. And I hope its message helps someone else out there, at any point in time, looking for inner peace.

  34. Andrea A

    Thinking about her so much today.. and the day has just begun....

  35. Marie Faulkner

    How did I forget this song?

  36. Tina Petreshock

    The one song that I can sing perfectly as if my life was to depend on it

  37. Amanda Collins

    Oh my God my childhood is screaming.

  38. Jessica Janes

    Just breath...

  39. Lal Mami

  42. musicaltheatergeek79

    Here in town you can tell he's been down for a while,
    But my God it's so beautiful when the boy smiles!
    Wanna hold him!
    Maybe I'll just sing about it...

  52. Natali Almeida

    2019 ... Someone ?

  53. Healthy Beans

    The most amazing words ever sung. This song is HUGE. Amazingly underheard.

  54. Healthy Beans

    The chorus is the most amazing truest words you can ever say.

  55. Healthy Beans

    You have to look at the BIG PICTURE when listening. It applies to everything we live for...and about.

  56. Healthy Beans

    This is an under rated song. It holds as much meaning as Sarah Mcglouchlans "Arms of an Angel". This song speaks to so many feelings with wisdom.

  57. Healthy Beans

    This song is so righteous on so many levels. This song is a chapter written by a soul who "gets it"

  58. Healthy Beans

    One of the greatest words ever put together though sheer life's expierences. Womderfully written and true.

  59. nichole Roberts

    Its 3:12am...I am really in my feelings...💔😢😞

    And can't get him out of my mind. No matter how hard I try. I can't...I miss him so much. And feeling like I am lying myself. Telling myself I don't love him. But deep inside I do... but I tell him that. He is with someone eles.

  60. Elijah Mota

    When it’s 2:am and this song is in your subscriptions

  61. Oliver Mason

    I forgot about this song

  62. Jonathan Labrecque

    When its 2 am and she actually calls you

  63. brisbride

    I've loved this song since 2005!!!!

  64. Meara LeFevre

    I listen to this song when I have panic attacks... It helps

  65. megan nicole

    I keep coming back for the "life's like an hourglass glued to the table" line

  66. Hey it's Beth xo

    To everyone who loved this song way before Greys Anatomy, or who like me never watched that show...

  73. John Henry

    Dawn Duplechein

    John Henry they used this song a lot throughout the show

    John Henry

    Dawn Duplechein can you name one episode so I can watch one for myself.

  74. Lincoln 23

    I ended up here because of Smallville. The one and only Smallville🤘

    Lincoln 23

    @Oliver Mason really dude? How old are you exactly??

    Oliver Mason

    Lincoln 23 I looked it up it came on 2 years before i was born sounds cool though

    Lincoln 23

    @Oliver Mason oh... Ok I get it. Just so you now if the Arrowverse exists is all because of Smallville

    Oliver Mason

    Lincoln 23 I don't watch arrow I'm not into shows like that

    Lincoln 23

    @Oliver Mason I don't watch the Arrowverse either, but smallville was unique. In those the show was hit

  75. Richard Robbins

    Its a good song. heard it around the time my little girl was born 2005 she is 14 now - Here because of the song Bro.

  76. Jay Corby

    Damn! Everytime I listen to this song I love it even more. The cadence of Anna's voice, the message in her lyrics and the harmony are truly outstanding. I am close to 74 years old, have listened to a lot of music and gone to a ton of dance clubs and in addition to countless hours of searching and researching paerticular songs, and I have to say that Breathe ( 2AM ) is among my top ten favorites.

  77. Murder Of Crows

    What the hell is greys

  78. Rose Joy

    I looked at the clock and it read 2:21. I don’t want to go to bed yet. So I thought to myself, what does one do at 2 am? Listen to 2am of course or I guess breathe

  79. Allen Levi

    2019...still breathing! 🙌🏾

  80. Sleeping Cinderella

    what's so cool about knowing this song other than from greys anatomy? :D that was a great episode and I'm proud

  81. Elijah Jan Valeras

    I am here because I've just watched "A Lot like love" ❤️

  82. EJgaming

    I’m here because of my APLAC class. Shout out to miss Soto!

  83. Just Jordan Marie

    This song helps so much for mental breakdowns. I love it.

  84. Simona Lynette Fullinfaw

    I absolutely love this song. I first heard it in high school and used to hum it during class.
    I stumbled across it again the other day and thought of covering it. If you're into acoustic covers, please check out mine and let me know if you like it.

  85. Satan

    And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. it's music and movies that have an image

  92. SJZach

    Can't blame Grey's Anatomy for playing this song it did help spread it around, but people who've heard it before Grey's are just naturally better than the rest of you

    imunderpressure uggjhg

    You had to of heard the song somewhere. Had to of found it somewhere.

    Jerome Valeska Is adorable

    SJZach that logic makes no sense
