Ouch, I have lost myself again
Updated: Feb 12
Most people that know me, know that I am a pretty big fan of Sia. My favorite song that she wrote is still the first song of hers that I ever heard. Breathe Me came out in 2004, and is about her struggles with isolation, and loneliness while struggling with her own mental health. It's one of the only songs that has ever made me cry, and even now, 19 years later, it'll still put a lump in my throat. Back in 2004, I couldn't understand exactly why the song described the ways I felt so well. I couldn't understand how I could have all the friends in the world, while, at the same time, not having a single one.
Now that I understand myself a lot better, I see that this song is an absolutely beautiful expression of some of the worst feelings one can experience. Give it a listen.
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
