Breakdown
by Sick of Sarah

About the Song:
"We wrote Breakdown when we were quite literally broken down in Metropolis, Illinois. We were at the end of a mini-tour and it was this series of shows and cities and hotels, and our van broke down and we were completely stuck. It came from this place of like, 'Is this what we really want to be doing? Sitting in gross hotel rooms in the middle of nowhere all in the name of music?' And the answer was Yes! And Breakdown was a product of this weird situation. I think so much of being a musician, and a touring musician at that, is a daily struggle with yourself, and your love of creating music, and performing, and on the underside of that, the intense work that goes into trying to make it. So it's like, do we keep fighting or go find a lame desk job? I'm pretty sure we're going to keep fighting!!"
— Abisha Uhl, Sick of Sarah

Lyrics:

So the sun fades and the lights break and the spark is blown away
A million miles from here to there and Superman's not anywhere
The road's about to sleep
And the smoke is thickening
Just like a part of me is dissolving
Collapsing

Were walking, but not talking, everything is hazy
Like we all are strangers and the cat took our tongues away
His lips were very still
Let the words out if you will
Cuz I'm running, I'm running out of time
We're running, we're running out of time.

It happened, I heard it in the breakdown
If it ever lets go
You know there's no stopping now

So we stepped up, and we checked in
Another bed I'm sleeping in
Another smoke-filled crowded room
Another mirror I look into
This feeling takes awhile
Laugh it off when you make me smile
But I'm running, I'm running out of time
We're running, we're running out of time

It happened, I heard it in the breakdown
If it ever lets go
You know there's no stopping now
It happened, I heard it in the breakdown
If it ever lets go
You know there's no stopping now

You know, you know...
You knew exactly what I was looking for
You knew exactly what I was looking for

It happened, I heard it in the breakdown
If it ever lets go
You know there's no stopping now
It happened, I heard it in the breakdown
If it ever lets go
You know there's no stopping now
