Still Breathing lyrics by Green Day

 Still Breathing song lyrics by Green Day from Rev Rad


Still Breathing song lyrics by Green Day


Still Breathing is a new Green Day song from their album Revolution Radio (often refereed to by fans as the ‘Rev Rad’ album.

Singer and chief lyric writer Billie-Joe Armstrong said that Still Breathing is a song that touches on yet more social issues – drug addiction, gambling and entwines them around the person lives of a soldier and a single mother and of course a boy who this grew up without a father.

Billie Joe said the song's meaning is not about himself (as he has famously struggled with drug addiction himself) but that he want’s the song’s intent to be more a more universal discussion rather than one  about his own travails:


‘I'd rather write something where my eyes are forward, not so much internal. I hope it makes people happy and creates a difference in some way, just by people recognizing themselves in the song.’


Still Breathing song lyrics


I'm like a child looking off in the horizon 
I'm like an ambulance turning on the sirens
Oh, I'm still alive
I'm like a soldier coming home for the first time
I dodge a bullet, I walk across a landmine
Oh, I'm still alive
Am I bleeding
Am I bleeding from the storm?
Just shine a light into the wreckage
So far away away
Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away
Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away
My way to you
I'm like a junkie tying off for the last time
I'm like a loser that's betting on his last dime
Oh, I'm still alive
I'm like a son that was raised without a father
I'm like a mother barely keeping it together
Oh, I'm still alive
Am I bleeding
Am I bleeding from the storm?
Just shine a light into the wreckage
So far away away
Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away away
Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away away
As I walk down ledge
Are you scared to death to live
I've been running all my life
Just to find a home that's for the restless
The truth that's in the message
Making my way away away
Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away
Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away
Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away
My way to you
