“Gonna Get over You” and “Breathe Again” by: Sara Bareilles
For a good period of time, I had some really close people to me, relationships and friendships that I thought were going to last a long time, for forever really, just disintegrate. For whatever reason, it just wasn’t enough. It was really hard for me to let them go, they all left me quite unexpectedly, it kinda left me feeling broken. I gave everything I had, I did everything I could, there was nothing that I could do to stop the inevitable from happening.
These songs reminded me during those times that even though I’m not okay now, one day I will be. They were two song I held close to me. Both provided the same ease of “I’ll be okay one day,” but in two different tones. While, Gonna Get over You had a perky, upbeat tone that left me looking up. Breathe Again had a somber tone that allowed me to mourn the broken relationship.
“I’ll be alright, just not tonight”
“Hoping someday, I’ll breathe again”
