Just Breathe

You would think a Seattle girl would know all songs by Pearl Jam, but even I am still discovering their music.

Ms. Kay of Diary of a Married Woman is another Pearl Jam fan and when I posted Nothingman, she chimed in with a great request for a song of theirs I haven’t heard called Just Breathe. Β It’s beautiful. And so here is my version on the harmonium!

Thanks, Kay! I hope you enjoy it. πŸ™‚ Β And you get to meet my cat Cotton about 1:10 minutes in.

Just Breathe ~ Pearl Jam

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 got none, uh huh

Stay with me
Let’s just breathe

Practiced on our sins
Never gonna let me win, uh huh
Under everything
Just another human being, uh huh

Yeah, I don’t want to hurt
There’s so much in this world
To make me bleed

Stay with me
You’re all I see

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh if I didn’t, I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
As I come clean

I wonder everyday
As I look upon your face, uh huh
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take, uh huh
Nothing you would take
Every thing you gave

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh if I didn’t, I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
I come clean

Nothing you would take
Every thing you gave
Hold me ’till I die
Meet you on the other side

    1. Aw, thank you. πŸ˜‰ Yes, the harmonium is cool. I also play piano, but this is my current obsession…as if it were my version of guitar, I was thinking today. If you have a song you’d like to request that you think may be a good fit for it, let me know. ❀
