"Breathe Your Name" as written by and Matthew Preston Slocum....
It's everyday I'm in this place
I feel this way, I feel the same.
It's everyday I'm in this place
I feel this way, I feel the same.
Is it all inside my head?
Is it all inside my head?

I view the list and take my pick,
I'll view my fate and make the choice,
'Cause it's nobody else's but mine.

But You're in my heart, I can feel your beat.
And You move my mind from behind the wheel
When I loose control,
I can only breathe Your name.
I can only breathe Your name.

So many days within this race,
I need the truth, I need some grace.
I need the ? to find my place,
I need some truth, I need some grace.
The part of You that's part of me
Will never die, will never leave.
And it's nobody else's but mine.

You are in my heart, I can feel your beat.
And You move my mind from behind the wheel.
When I loose control,
I can only breathe your name,
I can only breathe your name.

You view the list and take your pick,
You view my fate and make the choice,
'Cause I'm nobody else's but Yours.

And You're in my heart--I can feel your beat,
And You move my mind from behind the wheel.
When I loose control,
I can only breathe Your name.
'Cause you're in my heart--I can feel Your beat,
And you move my mind from behind the wheel.
When I loose control,
I can only breathe your name [Repeat: x4]

    General CommentJust a great song, whether you believe it is about God or not. Could be just about the feeling of being "in love", which means in love, with anything or anyone.

    General CommentDue to the nature of Sixpence's Christian rock lyrics, this is probably a lengthy yadda yadda about God. For example, notice:
    "You'll view the list
    And take your pick
    You'll view my faith
    And make a choice
    'Cause it's nobody else's but yours "

    General CommentI think it's about her and this guy that she kinda wants to sleep with or something. So in the first verse she's saying about how she always feels like this, and in the second she's saying that it's her choice and what she's trying to decide based on.

    The chorus is all about how he makes her feel, and how she can't go any further than 'breathe your name'.

    Then in the next one she's telling him that it's his choice whether or not he's gonna wait for her and stick around or whether he'll leave her because of the constrictions of her religion.

    This is probably all complete crap, but it's what I like to imagine the song to be about.

    General CommentNormally I despise Christian music because it's so bland, insipid, and utterly toothless, but I love Sixpence for some reason. This is a multivalent song--if you wanted to focus on the Christian aspect, you could, but it could also be about romance. I choose to follow the latter interpretation, partly because I first heard the song on pop radio and I have a hard time believing that it would play a Christian song.

    General CommentI think it's definitely about a guy. She has choices (other guys interested in her) verse: "I view the list and take my pick and he has choices too (other girls interested in him) verse: "You view the list and take your pick," but they choose each other.

    My InterpretationThe chorus sounds like she's talking about a really good orgasm :-) but that doesn't mesh with the rest of the lyrics.
