"Places For Breathing" as written by and Robert Wayne/cox Davis....
Look around you
Do you see what you've got
With something so beautiful
Afraid it would drop
Into a thousand regrets

And I bet you were left there
It's getting me down
And I can't understand
Why everyone Stares when I crash at the landing
And around were they stand

Everyone talks again

We try to say with confidence
That were picking up oblivion
And I was tryin' to make some sense
Speaking to you

We try to say with confidence
That were picking up oblivion
Inside of you

All around you there's a feeling you lost
That everything beautiful
Is not what it was
Whenever you were on top

Of all you left up there
It's getting me down
To the place that I land
That hits me so hard
With a cruel understanding
That It might be the end

Everyone talks again

[Repeat Chorus]

I'll bury myself into the corner
I can't even tell if I won't see anymore [2x]

    General CommentI think this could be about a man trying to get in touch with God or anything out there that would listen to him
    'I was trying to make some sense speaking to you'
    Maybe saying God is losing his touch with the world because nowadays its so packed with violance and no one cares about each other like people used to a few decades ago.
    'All around you there's a feeling you lost
    That everything beautiful is not what it was
    Whenever you were on top of all you left up there '
    Or maybe he's suffering from a mental breakdown or something thats made him upset or angry
    'when I crash at the landing'
    or maybe hes a loner and a social outsider
    'I'll bury myself into the corner'
    i'm not too sure!

    my view

    verse 1

    someone fucked up a really good relationship because he/she couldn't see the beauty that it truly made, and the really regret it, and in the process of fucking everything up they see what could have been and realize how much they not only hurt the person they lost, but themselves as well. that's verse one.

    chorus

    is saying how that even though they're apart they realize that they are both trying to move on from what they left behind, and they both realize it effected them in a major way, to the point where they had to work on who they were inside and change themselves to let go of each other.

    verse 2

    this time they both feel they've lost something profound, close, and beautiful, and there's a feeling of regret or sorrow that they hold for walking away, or for not trying hard enough, besides that they both feel that where they ended up was a place where everyone's opinion on the matter different, and that the realization it was over was over bearing and that people talking about it so much was too much and disheartening

    bridge

    saying that though they moved on,and pretend they've forgotten of gotten over it, they'll never fully be over each other no matter how hard they try and that they will always always always be fully, and truly depressingly, in love with each other.

    my view on this song, hope it helps
