Riff: Kelly Clarkson – “Catch My Breath”

Dec 26, 2012

I’ve spent most of my life/Riding waves, playing acrobat/Shadowboxing the other half

from Catch My Breath lyrics by Kelly Clarkson

A reflection on the craziness of the 10 years since her Idol victory, this best-of lead single sees Clarkson admit she hasn’t always been in control of her own career. But backed by a suitably euphoric array of gleaming 80s synths, she now claims she has the power to focus on the things that matter.
