Mat Kearney explains that the song is his journey battling perfectionism and being in control. He explains, “I am a micro-manager and I love being involved in every detail of my life, but in the big picture you realize how little control you have. ‘Air I Breathe’ is about those moments of surrender where you get to something that is bigger than you and you don’t have answers for it. Sometimes those moments can be very freeing because they are humbling. You realize you have been holding onto something and trying to control it when there’s grace available for you that is bigger than your own control.”
