"Reason To Believe" as written by and Chris Carrabba....
Oh sweet lungs don't fail me now
Your burning has turned into fear
Drills me in my every step, I'm moving quick but you're always on my heels

Just one more breath, I beg you please
Just one more step, my knees are weak
My heart is sturdy but it needs you to survive
My heart is sturdy but it needs you

Breathe, don't you want to breathe
I know that you are strong enough to handle what I need
My capillaries scream, there's nothing left to feed on
My body needs a reason to cross that line
Will you carry me there one more time?

Steady lungs, don't fail me now
I feel you bursting but you won't let me die
Fill me up with every step
I'm feeling sick, but I'm leaving it behind

Just one long breath I beg you please
Just one more step you are not weak
My legs are sturdy but they need you to survive
My heart is sturdy but I need you

Breathe, don't you want to breathe
I know that you are strong enough to handle what I need
My capillaries scream, there's nothing left to feed on
My body needs a reason to cross that line
Will you carry me there one more time?

I have reason to believe that I have victories to taste
I can feel them on my teeth, upon my lips and in my chest
I can roll them on my tongue, they are more subtle than defeat
I feel the tension in my lungs and every move is filled by my resolve to

Breathe, don't you want to breathe
I know that you are strong enough to handle what I need
My capillaries scream, there's nothing left to feed on
My body needs a reason to cross that line
Will you carry me there one more time?

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, it's meaning is obvious. It's just about trying to go on.. sometimes you get so wrapped up in life that you just forget to breathe.. so he's screaming at his lungs to breathe.

    General CommentFunny how this song is going to be in the upcoming videogame Madden 2007.

    I love the fact that this mysterious album kicks off with such a bang after the well-known "Don't Wait" concludes. With the gritty striking guitar riff, you can trick many people into thinking it's 'Taking Back Sunday' or some hardcore band.

    When I hear this song, I feel that Chris truly revisited his FurtherSeemsForever roots-- so tough to sing along with him because of the high notes! Stand out line for me is, "My Body needs a reason to cross that line, won't you carry me there one more time?".

    The rest of the lyrics don't stand out--I'm getting tired of biology lessons on the human heart, lungs, and how we breathe. I want Chris to write as clearly as the classic songwriters he looks up to---he's getting there. But not with this song.

    General Commenti like the biology part of it
    makes it a bit more real somehow
    gorgeous song
    only semi-bad thing is
    that in england we pronounce capillaries differently
    and it makes me giggle how he pronounces it
    which slightly takes away from the emotion in the song
    but not too much though!
    still love it.
    lol

    General Commentapologies for the second comment
    lol
    i've had this album on repeat since i got it.
    this song is by far my favourite.
    the way he sings "oh, sweet lungs" etc.
    with such emotion
    sends shivers down my spine.
    it's perfect =]
