OXYGEN - David Franj:

Head-lights, swirving cars, white man chasing ghosts, bleeding my heart,
City smog feels your eyes, let me catch the words that spill from your mind.
You're gonna be alright.

Cross my heart, hope to die, you're my oxygen, I'm alive,
Cross my heart, hope to die, you're my oxygen, I'm alive.

Say a prayer in your room for the friends that you once knew,
To that person that you wanna be.
Hold your breath (hold your breath) for the sun (for the sun),
But the clouds are all we've got, now it's better, just like before.
And it's nothing else more.

Chorus

Say a prayer for yourselves and a love that we leave behind,
Save that look while it lasts, coz it might not come again.

Chorus

    General Commentwell..hmm....what does this song mean to me? ALOT it was mine and my ex's song and my ex meant everything to me and still does, it makes me wanna cry everytime i hear it because i think of them. But..anyways what i think this songs is about...is...well i can only think of someone loosing a love and then one day possibly regaining it again. As well as losing that person they cared about it has forced everything else in their life to be messed up, basically not the same as before.

    General Commentgreat song. hey kat i gotta say. i have lost the one that means everything to me and i gotta say, you have to let go or it will continue to hurt. everything in your life isn't messed up it may not be the same as before i totally agree with that, but we all go through changes and without them our lives would be typical and boring. But dont wanna tell you what to do with YOUR life. nonetheless this song is really really good.

    General Commentfrist verse is slightly incorrect. its

    headlight, swearving cars
    while i'm chasing ghosts Bleeding my heart
    city smog fills your eyes
    let me catch the words that spill from your mouth.
    your mind your going to be alright

    and the last verse/bridge is wroung slightly too.

    sat a prayer for ourselves, and the love we leave behind.
    take that love, while it lasts 'cause it might not come again

    i think the song is about the loss of something/one important and coming to accept it.
