I climb I slip I fall
Reaching for your hands
But I lay here all alone
Sweating al your blood

If I could find out how
To make you listen now
Because I'm starving for you here
With my undying love

And I, I will

Breathe for love tommorow
cause theres no hope for today
Breathe for love tommorow
cause maybe there's another way

I climb I slip I fall
Reaching for your hands
But I lay here all alone
Sweating al your blood

If I could find out how
To make you listen now
Because Im starving for you here
With my undying love love

And I, I will

Breathe for love tommorow
cause theres no hope for today
Breathe for love tommorow
cause maybe there's another way

I climb I slip I fall
Into your empty hands
But I lay here all alone
Sweating all your blood

    General CommentI agree with SammaeL, sorry LovelyTay64, but I'm pretty sure you're off. I don't think God has anything to do with this song. When I first heard the song, I thought Hayley was singing about being let down by someone she cares a lot about, and probably loves. She says that she lays in his "empty hands, all alone." I interpreted that as the one she loves he has no love left for her. But, who knows, I might be way way off.

    General Commenthands down my favorite paramore song, as of the moment.
    "Breathe for love tomorrow, cause maybe there's another way" i think its definitely about loving someone you can't be with but trying to make it work, or something along the lines of that.

    General CommentJesus christ people...THIS SONG HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGIOUS STUFF!!!

    This is simply a depressed girl that got her heart completely trampled on because of some asshole...She reaches out for this guy, and all she ends up grabbing is nothing but air.

    It has NOTHING to do with Jesus...or god...or any of that bullcrap...Honestly guys, just because there is something deep and pretty and can make you cry JUST BY LISTENING TO IT, doesn't mean someone was religiously touched.

    I'm going to marry Hayley!!!...My girlfriend gave me permission if she could join!! =D

    General CommentIt's a very touching one for me...

    I can relate to this, especially with the line:


    If I could find out how
    To make you listen now
    Because I'm starving for you here
    With my undying love

    And I, I will

    It's as if she is really loving a person who doesn't love her back but she hopes she will have a chance on his heart...

    General CommentI don't usualy cry when I listen to songs, but this one's intro gets me so down. The lyrics are simple but powerful, and it's just completely raw and from the heart. I love that.

    My InterpretationFavourite song, Favourite Band,

    This is about being in love with someone but them not loving you back, but also about having hope that in the future, it will get better"Breathe for love tommorow" and at the same time realising that this the person you're in love with will never love you "cause theres no hope for today".

    General CommentI'm not sure if this is really by Paramore.. I definitely think it's Hayley's voice.. Please if anyone can assure me if it is by Paramore, drop a comment.. Cause I asked around, no one seemed to know this song..

    General CommentThis is in fact Paramore [one of their old, unreleased songs that no one was supposed to hear yet...haha oops] and was written by Josh. Also, the correct name for the song is 'Breathe.'
