"Reason for Breathing" as written by Joe L. Thomas, Quincy Q. Patrick, Joshua Thompson, Scott Sheldon Andrews and Warren Wilson....
If I cried like a baby would you change your mind?
If I told you I'm crazy would you come running back to me?
The harder I try to break away, the more I get lost in yesterday
The man that you know is just a shell, living without your life is hell

I turn on the radio just to take the hurt away
Another night and I'm missing you
Girl, it's killing me, well

[Chorus]
I don't want to die tonight, but I think I might be going down
'Cause the only one I ever cared about is nowhere to be found
I don't want to close my eyes 'cause I might not see the light of day
I'm almost out of air
You're my reason for breathing
You're my reason for breathing

I don't want to go clubbing, I got no one to dance with me
I don't want to go shopping, I got no one to spend my money on
Spending my time with one glass of wine
Playing solitaire just to ease my mind

Poured one for you, but I drank that too
Anything to kill the pain of losing you

I turn on the radio just to take the hurt away
Another night and I'm missing you
Girl, it's killing me

[Chorus: x3]

So I'm reaching out on this distant line
Hoping deep inside your heart's gonna find a reason
To keep me breathing
But I'm lost in this pain and I don't have much time

I'm so tired of walking this same old line
So I'm taking my pride, gonna throw it aside
Please let me breathe girl, I'm sorry

[Chorus: x2]

Baby girl, don't leave me standing here
I'm barely breathing, girl, I'm running out of air
Baby girl, don't leave me standing here
I'm barely breathing, girl, I'm running out of air

    General Commentwow. this song is very sweet. very painful. very emotional. i really like all the feeling behind this ong. i hate those dumb songs that are so polished and the singer has no feeling or emotion at all.
