I'm finding it hard just to breathe
I'm finding it hard just to breathe without your breathe of life
I'm finding it hard just to breathe in you
I can't breath, can't you see that I'm suffocating
Are you here with me now? Well everyone keeps telling me how you're the air I breathe
and everything I need is in you

I'm one step away from
Another bad decision and
I've already made up my mind
Cause I've strayed so far away from
The air that I breathe and I'm suffocating

Where am I?
I can't see a thing
I'm getting swept off my feet
And where are you I can here your words resounding
Not by the wind but by the waves that drown me
Don't let go, don't you let go

Oh why didn't it occur to me
That your love runs deeper
Than my moods or reservations
And all my stupid lines like,
"I'm just not in the mood for this"
I once was blind but now I see
You're breathing your life into me

So I'll swallow all my pride
Take a deep breath and fall at your feet
So this is breathing
Breathe in you

Where am I?
I can't see a thing
I'm getting swept off my feet
And where are you I can here your words resounding
Not by the wind but by the waves that drown me
Don't let go, don't you let go

Why didn't it occur to me
That your love runs deeper
Than my moods or reservations
And all my stupid lines like,
"I'm just not in the mood for this"
I once was blind but now I see
You're breathing your life into me

I'm finding it hard just to breathe (In You)
I'm finding it hard just to breathe without your breathe of life (In You)

    General Commenti love it, the song makes me feel like i'm flying... maybe it's love?

    well, anyway, that's what i think this song is about.
    about finding how much you love someone, and suddenly realizing how much they care for you and what they do for you....

    General Commenti think that people keep telling him that God is the air he breathes. and he is telling us about how he was straying away from the air he breathes (God). And now he realizes. "I once was blind but now I see"

    General CommentThis is about religion, fairly certain. He has been breathing all of gods air, and he got on the wrong path, so he was suffocating. But at the end of the song he realizes the correct path. He says he will swallow his pride and take a deep breath and fall at your feet, which means he will stop caring what others will say and take a breath of religion.
