Just Breathe Lyrics

Yes, I understand that every life must end, uh-huh
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, uh-huh
Oh I'm a lucky man, to count on both hands the ones I love
Some folks just have one, yeah, others, they've got none

Stay with me...

    This song helps me in the grieving of our Son who was born only at 19 weeks gestation. I was older in age & a Grandmother of 3 & Mother of 3 girls & 1 boy with him at 12 years old & him being our youngest. Our kids were thrilled & couldn’t wait!! I Brought him home & wrapped him up & we buried him at our home.

    I believe this song could be very relatable to loving someone and having a drug addiction yourself, and what you have put them though.

    This song gives me the vibes of grief and there's the presence of the thought of death and opening up with someone really important, letting them know that we are humans after all and telling them how important they are in our lives and wanting them to just stay by our side until the end.

    He feels guilty to the girl he loves and finally opens up to her and "comes clean" she gave him a lot always giving never taking but he is always receiving.

    I think Vedder finally feels guilty of his atheism.
