"It Only Hurts When I Breathe" as written by Todd C. Ashley, James Coleman, Christopher Nantz, Philip C. Puleo and Steve Mcmillen....
Was a time I would have cried
Those days have all gone by
You always walked a crooked line
And so did I
You read my thoughts, you knew my fears
Weren't as old as you appeared
But so much wiser than your years
And I was blind
If I mentioned love I take it back
I saw your heart and it was black
I finally found out what you lack
And that's a soul
You left a trail of rubber checks
Broken hearts and busted necks
What the fuck did I expect
I don't know
You can give your confession tomorrow
If you find a priest dumb enough to believe
It only hurts when I breathe
Purge and binge, binge and purge
Gorged on speed and bitter words
Found ourselves on be and 3rd

One more time
Feast and fast, burn and crash
Couldn't seem to make it last
You stole my confidence and cash
But I will survive
You can give your confession tomorrow
If you find a priest dumb enough to believe
It only hurts when I breathe
Tears and laughs, laughs and tears
Days are weeks and months are years
Up the on-ramp grinding gears
Away we go
Looking for a bar to burn
Waiting for the tide to turn
Some people never learn
And I should know
You can give your confession tomorrow
If you find a priest dumb enough to believe
And me I'll just beg steal and borrow
Because it only hurts when I breathe
It only hurts when I breathe
