"Breathe" as written by Jarrod Douglas Montague, Michael Frederick De Wolf, Philip M. Lipscomb and Stephen Steele Richards....
Jealousy is raining down on me right now
As the fear of losing you is setting in
But I'll continue to do my best
Although it's scary
Wondering if this will be my very first time to lose
And not to win
And I've got no back-up plane
But I'm not a quitter

I'm not a quitter

I try to scream but I can't breathe
Can anybody hear me?
I try to dream but I can't sleep
Can anyone shield me?
I shut my eyes and hold my cries to myself
My pride's in the shitter
But I
Never quit

Never quit

Confidence is coming back to me right now
As the strength in earning you is coming to
Cause I've continued to do my best
Although it was scary
Wondering if this will be my very first time to win
And not to lose
'cause I've had no back-up plan
But I'm not a quitter

I'm not a quitter

I try to scream but I can't breathe
Can anybody hear me?
I try to dream but I can't sleep
Can anyone shield me?
I shut my eyes and hold my cries to myself
My pride's in the shitter
But I
Never quit

Never quit

Confidence is coming back to me right now
As the fear of losing you is setting in
But I'll continue to do my best
Although it's scary
Wondering if this will be my very first time to win
And not to lose

I try to scream but I can't breathe
Can anybody hear me?
I try to dream but I can't sleep
Can anyone shield me?
I shut my eyes and hold my cries to myself
My pride's in the shitter
But I
Never quit

Never quit

    General CommentI think it's obvious, don't ever quit even if your losing. If you don't quit you are bound to start winning again and the feeling of earing something that you didn't give up on is something you would kick yourself for not going for.

    General Commentsounds like something is about to work out and the person is sued to failing but even so , they wont back down . he doesnt know where to start or where it will end , or if it even will .

    its good to take things a step at a time , instead of seeing it as a whole ..

    General CommentI think this song is talking about a person that broke up with a girlfriend/boyfriend, and the broken heart that goes with a close relationship. But as the song goes through the person gets better and stronger.

    General CommentTHis song represents the full spectrum of a relationship. At first he is scared that he will not be able to be with them. Next, he has her in his life and is scared that they are going to go to the next level, ex. marriage. Finnaly, either one of two things happen. One: they bread up and the relationship ends. (This leaves a little room for error.) Or two: His beloved dies and leaves him alone, although he will never be without her.
