"Breathe" as written by and Thomas Delonge....
A blue, black shade of love.
Sent from above.
My hands are tied to worlds alone,
And this I know.
Your breath's like wine,
And just like clouds, my skin crawls.
It's so divine, the sky it glows with fields of light.

Did you know that I love you?
Come and lay with me.
I love you.
And honestly, I will love you.
You make me feel alive,
And I'll love you
Until the end of time.

My hands shake clasped with fear as you come near
To say goodnight, just like a dove.
A peaceful sign.
To help us by as you come in.
Let this begin.
Stars fall like dust, our lips will touch.
We speak too much.

Did you know that I love you?

Come and lay with me.
I love you.
And honestly, I will love you.
You make me feel alive,
And I'll love you
Until the end of time.
Did you know that I love you?
Come and lay with me.
I love you.
And honestly, I will love you.
You make me feel alive,
And I'll love you
Until the end of time.

I've got a lot to say, if you will let me
It's always hard, when you're around me
But here right now, there's interest in your eyes
So hear me out, and hear this the first time

That I love you (come and lay with me)
That I love you (and all this day)
And I love you (you make me feel alive)
That I love you
Till the end of time

    General CommentI can understand why someone wouldn't like this song, it's one you either hate or love. However, I absolutely love it. This song brought me to tears the first time I heard it. I just sat at my computer listening while reading along, tears welling up in my eyes. How could something be more beautiful than this? This song has the simple aspect that so many relationships lack. This is all anyone ever wants, is to have someone say, "I love you" with so much passion it makes your heart ache. Amazing song.

    General CommentThis song is brilliant. It seems to be the song with less Blink-182/Box Car Racer influences out of the Promo collection. Definitely self-explanatory. I almost wish Tom & the crew would have pushed more in this direction than in the one that are going in for the new album. But, I think that helps this song stand out even stronger.

    General Commentthe chorus is slightly wrong. i think its:

    Did you know, that i love you?
    Come and lay with me, i love you,
    And on this day, i will love you,
    You make me feel alive, and i'll love you,
    Until the end of time

    General CommentThis is one awesome song. Angels and airwaves is a band you either love or hate. I love them personally because this song has minimalistic lyrics but just the sound and these simple lyrics create a sincerity i have not seen in music in a long time. It seems passionate

    the real lyrics are "on this day"
