"Out Of Breath" as written by Ron John Aniello and Jason Wade....
I still feel the same
Though everything has changed
The pain it cost now I feel lost inside of my own name
But I keep running
I am running
I keep living for the day that I'm with you
That I'm with you

The past has left its stain
Now I feel the shame
I'll seize the day if you take away the chains of yesterday
But I keep running
I am running
I keep living for the day that I'm with you

And I am waiting
I am waiting
I keep waiting for the day that I'm with you

A new day the sun is shining
Seems I'm closer to finding
That life is more than what we hide
No way that I am turning
As long as the sun is burning
Now it seems that all I want is you

I still feel the same
Though everything has changed
The pain it costs now I feel lost inside of my own name

But I keep running
I am running
I keep living for the day that I'm with you

And I am waiting
I am waiting
I keep waiting for the day that I'm with you
That I'm with you

    General Comment"the past has left its stain, now I feel the shame. I'll seize the day if You take away the chains of yesterday."
    I like that part because he's telling God that his past and his shame hold him back, and keep him in bondage. he tells God if He will take away these chains, he'll seize the day and take the freedom that God offers.
    I like this song because as a Christian I've had to deal a lot with the "chains of yesterday". I've messed up a lot in the past, and I feel like I pay the consequences for it all the time. But that's why God's grace is so awesome. Because I could never do anything to deserve that much love. I'm the least worthy person on the planet for redemption, but it's not about being worthy. that's what's so awesome. while we were still sinners, Jesus loved us so much that He would die for us. He died for everyone. Even those people that spit His name out on the sidewalk... there's no reason or explanation in it except that it's by total grace that we've been saved. I can't NOT have reverence for that. And I'll keep living for the day that I'm with Him.

    General Commenti think this song is a view from a man who is looking back on a past relationship and wishing that they could give it another go. He is saying that if u take away the chains of yesterday (the problems that caused them to break up) then he would be more than willing to give it another go. He is saying in the chorus that since they've been apart all he's been trying to do is get back together because he has still got feelings for this girl even though they had problems which cause them to split up in the first place. " a new day the sun is shining, seems im closer to finding........it seems that all i want is you" i think that means that its a new a day and that they should forget about the past cause he wants her back! i think the best part of this song is " no way that i am turning, along as the sun is burning, now it seems all i want is you" he is saying that as long as our feelings are still there then she is the only one he wants and that he will never walk away as long as there still there! another amazing lifehouse song!

    General CommentThis has got to be Lifehouse's best song.

    They should sent this as a single. It would blown up on radio, and been a huge hit. Instead they released Spin and this album failed commercially.
