lyrics

Orijin:
Breathe, let it out
Breathe, settle down
Take a day to break away, ain't nothin to sweat about
Breathe, when in doubt
Breathe and set yourself free

I’m waking up to the taunts of my alarm clock
Ready for my schedule's nonstop onslaught
Launch off the pillow giving God props
For a new day and the privilege of grinding
It's only Tuesday, I'm feeling riddled with assignments
Workin’ nine to five, spendin’ the nights on a stage
Somewhere in-between, penning life to a page
Middle of the week, I'll be at meetings with the brethren
Fellowship is bread, I'd be dead if I didn't get it in
Conducting business while I'm headed to the next event
Fittin’ big commitments in a schedule that's stretching thin
Never spend time at home, busy on the mission field
Send a text, try to phone, eventually we'll get to chill
Don’t worry Mama, I ain’t skipping meals
I just wish to fill a void, kill the noise, ease the stress
Need a break, need to rest, need to pray and read the text
Need a day to recollect, recreate, reconnect, just breathe

Arianna King:
Relentlessly
Your love, it fills me
I’ll be alright
All I gotta do is breathe, breathe, breathe
All I gotta do is breathe, breathe, breathe, yeah

Orijin:
Ooh Lord, my soul needed this Saturday
Gon’ sleep in and gravitate closely to my mattress
The whole week I've been at it, nose deep in the madness
It's so sweet to just breathe, both feet up relaxing
The Lord, me, and a pad with some dope beats, and a stack of some torn sheets
In the lab we compose pieces of passionate poetry
It’s low-key no schedule
I proceed at slow speed and got no need to be professional
Today I'm being flexible, dressed up in my sweats
And disconnecting from the net so every second is intentional
It’s so refreshing spending time up in your presence, Lord
Contentments the only treasure that I’m contending for
When efforts are plentiful to slave and to serve and to write
Your rest is incredible, You say that your burden is light
And Lord it’s so true, my soul’s soothed by the Sabbath
I’d be a fool not to make this a regular practice just to breathe

Arianna King:
Relentlessly
Your love, it fills me
I’ll be alright
All I gotta do is breathe, breathe, breathe
All I gotta do is breathe, breathe, breathe, yeah

Orijin:
Now all my people take an inhale
And just hold it for a sec
Now everybody on the exhale
And get the weight up off your chest

Now once again let’s take an inhale
And just hold it for a sec
Now everybody on the exhale
And get the weight up off your chest
All I gotta do is breathe

Arianna King:
Relentlessly
Your love, it fills me
I’ll be alright
All I gotta do is breathe, breathe, breathe
All I gotta do is breathe, breathe, breathe, yeah

Orijin:
Breathe, let it out
Breathe, settle down
Take a day to break away, ain't nothin to sweat about
Breathe, when in doubt
Breathe and set yourself free
