If I could just breathe
I have a feeling life could be so easy
I could just close my eyes
And not remember a thing

I won’t get ahead of myself
I’m not the same as when this started
I’m growing up but I know what I deserve

And now I know I gotta let some things go
You can always forgive but who can really forget
Some of the things you’ve done

So I’m staring at the insides
Of the tear stained brown eyes
That I don’t even recognize anymore

If I could just breathe
I have a feeling life could be so easy
I could just close my eyes
And not remember a thing
And if I had just said
Every single word that came to my head
I wouldn’t be in the mess that
I find myself in now.

And who are you to talk to me
About making good decisions
How about making an example?

And who are you to talk to me
About not making excuses
You’re the biggest hypocrite of them all

So I’m staring at your brown eyes
There’s nothing on the inside
I don’t even recognize myself anymore

If I could just breathe
I have a feeling life could be so easy
I could just close my eyes
And not remember a thing
And if I had just said
Every single word that came to my head
I wouldn’t be in the mess that
I find myself in now.

I’ll scream and shout
Break down these walls and let all the demons out
Oh, oh
And I’ll finally free my heart
And the truth will come out
About what really tore us all apart
Oh, oh

Now if I could just breathe
Life would be so easy
If I could just breathe
Things would all be okay

If I could just breathe
I have a feeling life could be so easy
I could just close my eyes
And not remember a thing
And if I had just said
Every single word that came to my head
I wouldn’t be in the mess that
I find myself in now.

If I could just breathe
I have a feeling life could be so easy
I could just close my eyes
And not remember a thing
And if I had just said
Every single word that came to my head
I wouldn’t be in the mess that
I find myself in now.

Now if I could just breathe
Life would be so easy
If I could just breathe
Things would all be okay
