Kelly Clarkson: Catch My Breath Meaning

Catch My Breath Lyrics

I don't wanna be left behind
Distance was a friend of mine
Catching breath in a web of lies
I've spent most of my life
Riding waves, playing acrobat
Shadowboxing the other half
Learning how to react
I've spent most of my time

    It's about how she let others make her decisions, get her down about herself, and make her stop caring about others. Now she's taking control of her life, not trying to keep up her celebrity image. Seems to be very personal, about her struggles with being famous: suddenly people want her, but it's for the money she can make them. Then they start hating on her bc that's how they keep her from saying screw you. She was so caught up in doing what others told her and trying, at the same time, to deal with the haters. Now she has the courage to stand up for herself and live for herself.

    Moving so fast in life, you can forget who you are.

    Its about being yourself and not letting anyone tell you what wrong or right.

    I think this song is about doing what you want in life and not letting anyone try to change your life.

    Catch my Breath is a very good song where Kelly is trying to say that she is torn between appeasing her critics and following what she wants in her life (This is mostly seen in the first verse) This problem is solved by Kelly by finding herself among theses cloudy problems she is facing.
