"Dead but breathing" as written by Max Martin, Lesley Roy, Par Aldeheim and Camela Leierth....
Well, it finally had to end this bitter way
We had no more left to give no matter what we said
'Cause I worried every night and slept all day
I was lying to myself pretending to be someone else

You love me so but it's over
Just let me go, we're going nowhere
I feel like I'm dead but breathin'
I know because my heart is beatin'
Just let me go 'cause it's over

So you try to work it out and get some help
You've been fooling everyone but I know what's going on
I can't hold your hand through this again
We keep lying to ourselves pretending to be something else

You love me so but it's over
Just let me go, we're going nowhere
I feel like I'm dead but breathin'
I know because my heart is beatin'
Just let me go

I'm sorry that I couldn't stay to fill your empty space
It's alright, you'll be fine
I know that you'll be better off in a different place
It's alright, you'll be fine

You love me so but it's over
Just let me go
I feel like I'm dead but breathin'
I know because my heart is beatin'

You love me so but it's over
Just let me go, we're going under
I feel like I'm dead but breathin'
I know because my heart is beatin'
Just let me go 'cause it's over

    General CommentAbsolutely love this song!

    I think it's about a relationship that just isn't working out, and though the singer and her partner are still in love, it's just not going to fix them this time. So she's saying to let her go.
