lyrics

Sometimes I need to cry
Sometimes I can't even look my life in the eye
Sometimes I need to run
Frightened of facing the day before it's begun

But you, you give me breath
You're all that I need when there's nothing else left
You give me breath.

Just when I lose my ground
You say my name and I feel your warmth all around
Solace may come and go
But you're here with me and that's all I need to know

'Cuz you, you give me breath
You're all that I need when there's nothing else left
You give me breath.

I know there's something running through my veins
Pumping my delicate heart
I know that I won't feel so suffocated
Except when we're apart

'Cuz you, you give me breath
You're all that I need when there's nothing else left
You give me breath.
