"Breathe" as written by and Sean Paul/matias Henriques....
I wish I could breath, I wish I could stand.
I wish I had a chance here holding your hand.
Wish I could speak, I wish could talk
I wish I could breathe

Since the first day, I was alive,
I feared we would meet here in the misty outside
I wanted to run, I wanted to hide
I wish I could breathe

I feel a chill deep in my bones,
Nothing can heal, the way my blood moans.
Nothing can quench, My bitter thirst
I wish I could breathe.

I grasp at my heart, That burns in my chest,
It's your precious art, That makes my soul stressed.
I run short of blood, light headed I swoon.
I wish I could breathe.

I fear I can't over come this place
I know your face, your hands
I wish I could breathe.

I wish I could breath, I wish I could stand.
I wish I had a chance here holding your hand.
Wish I could speak, I wish could talk
I wish I could breathe

Since the first day, I was alive,
I feared we would meet here in the misty outside
I wanted to run, I wanted to hide
I wish I could breathe

I fear I can't over come this place
I know your face, your hands
I wish I could breathe.

    My InterpretationMy first guess was that this could be about abortion, or at least a child in a mother's womb about to be aborted, the child wishes it could breathe and be outside in the world and actually have the CHANCE to hide from the needle of abortion. It's blood is drained from it's body and it faints, most likely never to be alive again. It says "I know your face, your hands" most likely because it inherited the hands from his/her mother and father.
    But I also guess that it could be a ghost wishing it wasn't dead and back in it's human form. "Fear we would meet here in the misty outside" possible nthe spirit world.
