"Breathe" as written by Matthew Lambert, Barry Francis and Daniel Smith....
In life, we struggle as individuals
A fine line between a cliché saying and something original
As if in death we left something residual
Behind to mark our time up in this pitiful
Existence and i’m a man of many issues
If I ever dissed you, no disrespect I never wished to
Hold a grudge the stress makes me act like this
The day I get it off my chest I won’t write tracks like this
But i’ll be bitter on them when all is done and is forgotten
Cos it’s easier to sit and complain than fix the problem
But the power of speech endowers our beliefs
With sour defeats, man nothing is out of reach
Got plenty to answer for, all do is answered back
Done a thousand things I regret, apologize for none of that
So you get back what you put in no regrets
And keep on until they know your sweat, you only get

(we get)one chance, so I live for the moment
I’m just one man what I wouldn’t give for this moment
We got one world; still we take it in stride
In this one life we stand still waiting to die
(we get)one chance, so I live for the moment
I’m just one man what I wouldn’t give for this moment
We got one world, still we take it in stride
In this one life we stand still waiting to die
Now breathe in

Now if life is what you make it it’s time to build
Man I’m for real ain't no telling what this life will yield
I’m a career man, cos I career off any path
That would lead me to a start of financial gains I’m scarred
We learn from our mistakes, that makes me a scholar on
Being a walking talking fuck up and a better man for being wrong
I’m humble and loyal, my friendships are honored
A mans success ain't measured by the depths of his pocket
I give good advice but never follow it, what’s left for me
I’m a hypocrite and if I weren’t I’d be a success story
View this wide world through a narrow gaze, these harrowed days
Seen to many men end in a shallow grave
I guess it’s better to have loved and to lost, than never stumbled across
The gift of knowing you what ever the fucking cost
To put it in perspective and under my vision
This world is superficial, I’m done with others opinions

(we get)one chance, so I live for the moment
I’m just one man what I wouldn’t give for this moment
We got one world, still we take it in stride
In this one life we stand still waiting to die
(we get)one chance, so I live for the moment
I’m just one man what I wouldn’t give for this moment
We got one world; still we take it in stride
In this one life we stand still waiting to die
Now breathe out

    "We learn from our mistakes, that makes me a scholar on,
    Being a walking talking fuck up and a better man for being wrong"

    "A mans success aint measured by the depths of his pocket"

    "I guess it’s better to have loved and to lost, than never stumbled across,
    The gift of knowing you what ever the fucking cost.
    To put it in perspective and under my vision,
    This world is superficial; I’m done with others opinions."

    General Commentthis song always spoke to me, breathe is about believing that we only get one chance so take the time to enjoy life for the moment, every moment is important, even breathing, the rest of the song is testimonial as in like to realise that life is special and it is spoken through these words perfectly
