"Breathe" as written by Rollo Armstrong, Rob Dougan and Kristine E. Weitz....
I played the fool today
And I just dream of vanishing into the crowd
Longing for home again
But home is a feeling I buried in you

I'm all right, I'm all right
It only hurts when I breathe

I can't ask for things to be still again
I can't ask if I could walk through the world in your eyes
Longing for home again
But home is a feeling I buried in you

I'm all right, I'm all right
It only hurts when I breathe
I'm all right, I'm all right
It only hurts when I breathe

My window through which nothing hides
And everything sings
'Cause I'm counting the signs
Cursing the miles in between
Home is a feeling I buried in you

I'm all right, I'm all right
It only hurts when I breathe

    General CommentYou know, Greenwheel (who is represented by the same label as Melissa) was flattered to have her cover the song as this is the ONLY cover she had recorded on an album until her Greatest Hits album where she covered Janis Joplin(Piece of My Heart) and Tom Petty(Refugee).

    Melissa has said in interviews that she was reluctant to cover a song on an album, but in the end it was more of a record label decision than hers. It's good, but I would rather hear the songs that she has written. They are much more raw than when she covers a song. The only exception being when she sings Piece of my Heart, or anything by Janis Joplin as she has said many times Janis was a big influence on her and her music...
