"Take a Breath" as written by Nicholas Jonas, Joseph Jonas, Kevin Jonas Ii and Jess Cates....
I walked across a crowded street
A sea of eyes cut through me
And I saw you in the middle
Your upset face, you wear it well
You camouflage the way you feel
When everything is the matter

We've all been down that road before
Searching for that something more
Worlds are spinning 'round
There's no time for slowing down
So won't you take a breath? Just take a breath

People change and promises are broken
Clouds can move and skies will be wide open
Don't forget to take a breath

We blink our eyes, life's rearranged
To our surprise, it's still okay
It's the way things happen
Summer comes and then it goes
Hold on tight, and brace for cold
And it's only for a moment

We've all been down that road before
Searching for that something more
Worlds are spinning 'round
There's no time for slowing down
So won't you take a breath? Just take a breath

People change and promises are broken
Clouds can move and skies will be wide open
Don't forget to take a breath

Life isn't suffocating
Air isn't overrated

Worlds are spinning 'round
There's no time for slowing down
So won't you take a breath? Just take a breath

Worlds are spinning 'round
There's no time for slowing down
So won't you take a breath?
Just take a breath, take a breath

People change and promises are broken
Clouds can move and skies will be wide open
Don't forget to take a breath

Worlds are spinning 'round
There's no time fore slowing down
So won't you take a breath?
Don't forget to take a breath
Don't forget to take a breath

    General CommentThis song is my new favorite song of theirs. I mean, it is so good! Often times people, especially those who are under a lot of stress, want to just give up because everything in their life is moving so quickly and time is going by so fast. This song is just encouraging to take one second and stop, and breath.
    I agree with michelle, their music does seem to progress with every song they write.
    Keep it coming JB!

    General Commentthis song is so amazing and extremely meaningful. i think that this song is about someone (probably a girl...) who is kind of depressed and kind of gave up on life, but she tries her best not to show the world how upset she really is. and i agree with gengen319 when she said that it was very mature for them. i think that they have improved so much since their start, and they just get better and better vocally, instrumentally, and lyrically (wow. those are some big words! lol.).

    General Commentthis song is my current obsession -- so amazing

    i totally agree with you njroxmysox.... when i first heard the song, i totally related to the whole depression piece so this song goes deep for me. when i listened a little more, i started to think that it deals with suicide... like njroxmysox said, some girl is depressed, and is giving up on life, and it's about begging her to hang on. joe's voice in this, along with the harmonies makes it even more powerful.
