"Every Breath" as written by and Alejandro Luis Manzano Fabian Rafael Manzano....
It sounds like this is nothing new
And that it hasn't been for a while
You wake up on the other side
And you strain to force a smile
The fairy tale inside your head
Has become your new best friend
But I can show you that I'll be there
Before the story ends

'Cause when I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me
You'll be the only light I see

I'm racing to the finish line
Of a lifetime that's barely started
The peace of mind I left behind
I pray you'll keep in your perfect garden
You're waiting on a minute hand
And a countdown that lasts for days
But I'm here tell you
It won't be long before I'm here to stay

'Cause when I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me
You'll be the only light I see

The weightlessness and a lack of rest
Away from you I'm in over my head

Even when it's dark before the dawn
I'll feel your grace and carry on
And with every breath of me
You'll be the only light I see

When I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me
You'll be the only light I see

Even when it's dark before the dawn
I will feel your grace and carry on
And with every breath of me
You'll be the only light I see
The be the only light I see

    General CommentI love this song :) I think it's about a girl and guy who have both been through really hard times in their own lives, but they're always there for each other, either as friends or a couple.

    My InterpretationCORRECTTION: You were there to _wear it_ from the start

    Interpretation:

    I think its about a boy who has been through many failed relationships and everytime one ends he turns to a girl thats always been just a friend for support but she's always loved him

    "You strain to force a smile
    The fairytale inside your head
    has become your new best friend"

    And then he is away from this girl (or she is away from him) when he needs her again, and without her he feels empty

    "Away from you, I'm in over my head"

    and he realizes how perfect this girl would be for him and he can't wait until they can finally be together

    General CommentThis is the real meaning of this song - as told by Alejandro -
    'Every Breath' is a song written by my brother Daniel, and it is about being away from the people you love most in life but knowing that they will always be there with you, either in this life or the next. The more we toured the world as a band, the more we experienced being separated from the people we loved back home, so this song began to take on a deeper meaning every time we hit the road.
