"The Air I Breathe" as written by and Matthew Wentworth....
Don’t let me forget
Where I started
'Cause I keep losing my sight
I'm blinded by the light

My dreams are in front of me
And everything I've worked for is standing at my door

I know I may be the first to forget
But I appreciate the air I breathe
I know that I may be the first to forget
But I appreciate the air I breathe

We choke when we focus on negativity
When did this turn into something we took for granted
This road wont take us home
This road wont take us home to the place we thought we know

I know I may be the first to forget
But I appreciate the air I breathe
I know that I may be the first to forget
But I appreciate the air I breathe

Take a breath, take your time
Take a breath, take your time

My dreams are in front of me
And everything I've worked for is standing at my door

Keep me alive

The faces we ignore
Could be the faces that keep us alive
The faces we ignore
Could be the faces that keep us alive

I know I may be the first to forget
But I appreciate the air I breathe
I know that I may be the first to forget
But I appreciate the air I breathe

    But I'm not positive.

    General CommentPretty legit song

    I see it as being in a band and following their dream of making music but not getting caught up in it and taking it for granted. "The faces we ignore, Could be the faces that keep us alive" is talking about their fans being the reason they're able to keep following their dream because without any of us, they wouldn't be able to keep touring and making music.
