About Breathing

"Breathing" is a song recorded by American recording artist Jason Derulo for his second studio album, Future History (2011). It was written by Derulo, Jacob Luttrell, Lauren Christy, Julian Bunetta, Krassimir Tsvetanov Kurkchiyski, Shope Trad and Folksong Thrace, while production of the song was helmed by DJ Frank E. "Breathing" was initially released as one of four promotional singles for the album in September 2011. It was later released to contemporary hit radio in Australia on October 24, 2011, and elsewhere from January 31, 2012, as the third single from Future History. Musically, "Breathing" is a Eurodance song that displays influences of electro and house, and features "tribal vocal chorales" in the background. It samples the song "Pilentze Pee", which is sung by the Bulgarian State Television Female Vocal Choir. Lyrical inspiration for the song came from the death of Derulo's cousin, who died in 2011. "Breathing" garnered positive reviews by many music critics, most of whom praised the production. The song attained moderate chart success, where it peaked inside the top-ten on the singles charts in Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Slovakia and Switzerland. Additionally, it reached the top-thirty in France, the Netherlands, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The song peaked at number 28 on the US Pop Songs chart. "Breathing" was certified double platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA), for shipments of 140,000 copies. The accompanying music video was directed by Colin Tilley, and features Derulo in an abandoned warehouse, as well as other scenes of him shirtless in a blue tinted room. Derulo performed "Breathing" live at the Belfast City Hall in Northern Ireland, to coincide with the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards. The song has been covered by British recording artist Cher Lloyd.

I only miss you when I'm breathing
I only need you when my heart is beating
You are the color that I'm bleeding
I only miss you when I'm breathing

This ain't no ordinary feeling
You are the only thing that I believe in
I know you're coming back to me
I will be waiting here for you til the end

I only miss you when I'm breathing!
I only miss you when I'm breathing!
Without your love, don't know how I survive
It's you, it's you that's keeping me alive
I only miss you when I'm breathing!

Ay ay ay ay
Ay ay ay ay

I wanna see pictures of you leaning
I needs for walls, and on the ceiling
Gave you a kiss, but I'm dreaming
These crazy thoughts are so deceiving
You are the drug, I am fiening
Paradise that I'm so seeking
I'm still alive, hope there's a reason
Can't move my lips, but my heart's screaming

I only miss you when I'm breathing!
I only miss you when I'm breathing!
Without your love, don't know how I survive
It's you, it's you that's keeping me alive
I only miss you when I'm breathing!

Ay ay ay ay
Ay ay ay ay

Oh baby, I only miss you when I
I'm screaming at your name, but you don't answer me
I know I kissed your face, is this my fantasy?
Sound the alarm, tell everyone that I only miss you

I only miss you when I'm breathing!
I only miss you when I'm breathing!
Without your love, don't know how I survive
It's you, it's you that's keeping me alive
I only miss you when I'm breathing!

I only miss you when I'm breathing
