Katy Perry – I'm Still Breathing lyrics
I leave the gas on
Walk the allies in the dark
Sleep with candles burning
I leave the door unlocked
I'm weaving a rope and
Running all the red lights
Did I get your attention
Cause I'm sending
All the signs that
The clock is ticking
And I'll be giving
My 2 weeks

Pick your favorite
Shade of black
You'd best
Prepare a speech
Say something funny
Say something sweet
But don't say
That you loved me

[Chorus:]
Cause I'm still breathing
Though we've been
Dead for awhile
This sickness has no cure
We're goin down for sure
Already lost a grip
Best abandon ship

Maybe I was too pale
Maybe I was too fat
Maybe you wanted better
Better luck off in the sack
No formal education
And I swore way too much
But I swear you didn't care
Cause we were in love

So as I write this letter
And she'd my last tear
It's all for the better
That we end this this year
Let's close this chapter
Say one last prayer
But don't say
That you loved me

Cuz I'm still breathing
Though we've been dead for awhile
This sickness has no cure
We're going down for sure
Already been diagnosed
So let's give up the ghost

Cuz I'm still breathing
Though we've been dead for awhile
This sickness has no cure
We're going down for sure
Already lost a grip on this abandoned ship
Oh..

I'm still breathing
I'm still breathing

    I genuinely think that this song is about katy committing suicide.
    In particular, lines like "i'm wearing a rope", "cause i'm sending. All the signs that. The clock is ticking. And i'll be giving my 2 weeks. Pick your favourite. Shade of black. You'd best prepare a speech", "maybe i was too pale. Maybe i was too fat", "but i swear you didn't care" and "so as i write this letter. And shed my last tear. It's all for the better. That we end this year. Let's close this chapter. Say one last prayer" stand out to represent this meaning.
    Great song, and if it is about suicide, I can relate 1000%.
