Review

Jesse & Joy Respirar's meaning and lyrics explained

Respirar – “Breathe” is a song by the Mexican band Jesse & Joy. It was released in January 2022 and like most of their songs, Respirar tells us about the sad story of a couple that is ready to end their relationship.

Most of Jesse & Joy's songs are about relationships or sad moments in life that you can feel related to because the lyrics speak about what we felt in those moments when our world was crumbling above us. 

Respirar take us to the point of view of a girl, who is telling her partner to stop before leaving, she asks him to look at her face so he can see she’s not perfect. She starts talking to him with her heart, saying that she failed him, but he did the same and now she regrets it.

At some point their love was like a fairytale, but now she can’t find that feeling anymore, she wants to amend things with him, she’s tired of counting the pieces of her broken soul, maybe if they try, they will be able to save their relationship, and if it’s not possible at least they will end in good term and they would breathe calmly.

Respirar by Jesse & Joy is a beautiful song, with easy lyrics to practice Spanish and a slow rhythm if you aren’t still used to following the singing. Overall there aren’t difficult sentences and most of the verbs are used in easy-to-understand phrases, recommended for those with mid-level Spanish knowledge.
