I'm Still Breathing

Katy Perry



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This obituary for a dead relationship was produced and co-written by former Eurythmic Dave Stewart. Perry recorded this with Stewart in London, England. In our interview with Dave Stewart, he explained that he excels at writing songs with a melancholy kind of atmosphere, and cites this as an example. Says Stewart: "If you go to Katy Perry's album, the one really sad and melancholy song on it is 'I'm Still Breathing.' It's talking about a relationship, but it's putting it into a strange context. It has lines like, 'I'm still breathing, but we've been dead for a while.' You know, 'I think we're losing grip, let's abandon ship,' and all that kind of funny imagery mixed together."
Three different ex-boyfriends show up on Perry's One of the Boys album. This and "Thinking of You" are about the same guy, while "Ur So Gay" and "Mannequin" are about the other two.

Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.
