never try to understand me,
expectation makes me old
hide your pennies in the sand
somehow i am supposed to know
the hardest thing to do
let it go

and i know we've been affected
perfected
the power too short,
did we serve to entertain?
did we find someone to blame?
what i said & what i did
were the not the same

oh, i am breathing
oh, i am leaving in the morning
maybe you can think about it
when i'm gone

could we lie
behind the fables
heroes & heroin
the weight here is far too much
to be worth so little
but will she come & stay with me?

oh, i am breathing
oh, i am leaving in the morning
maybe you can think about it
when i'm gone

did we serve to entertain?
did we find someone to blame?
was it something in your head?
was it something in your veins?
give me something i can hold on to -
i can try my best to help you
if you never let me down

never try to understand her
her rose & her ruin
are very unforgiving
do the things you think you should
to let you know you're alive
you are young, you are beautiful -

oh, i am breathing
oh, i am leaving in the morning
maybe you can think about it
when i'm gone

oh, i am breathing
oh, i am leaving in the morning
maybe you can think about it
when i'm gone
