"Catch My Breath" is the lead single off Kelly Clarkson's Greatest Hits—Chapter One compilation, released in November. Far from your typical phoned-in Greatest Hits bonus track, "Catch My Breath" is a worthy inclusion to the hits album, a song that takes stock of the first ten years of Kelly's rollercoaster pop career and its behind-the-scenes drama, confirms that she remains undaunted, and looks forward to the next chapter to come. Let's take a deeper look into the details:
Riding waves, playing acrobat
Shadow boxing the other half
Learning how to react
I’ve spent most of my time
Addicted to the love I’ve found
Heavy heart now a weightless cloud
Making time for the ones that count
I’ll spend the rest of my time
Laughing hard with the windows down
Leaving footprints all over town
Keeping faith karma comes around
I won’t spend the rest of my life
Catching my breath
Letting it go
Turning my cheek for the sake of the show
Now that you know
This is my life I won’t be told what’s supposed to be right
Catch my breath
No one can hold me back
I ain’t got time for that
Catch my breath
Won’t let em get me down
It’s all so simple now
