"Breathe" as written by Natalie Stewart and Lee Jr. Hutson....
It's been so long since you've gone away
And I know things will never be the same
I break it all down so it will show to me clear
But all the while I'm wishing you were here

In my dreams I can see and feel your face
But next to me sits an empty space
Sometimes this life doesn't make any sense to me
I need some time to heal and some space to breathe

I'm breathing you in and I'm breathing you out

As I lay on the floor and I wonder why
The question lingers why did you die
I thank God for you and the memories
But I still wish you were here with me

I'm breathing you in and I'm breathing you out

Gone away and I pray for the strength to
Strength to carry on
As I am breathing you in and I'm breathing you out
I still feel you though you're gone

I'm breathing you in and I'm breathing you out

    General Commentwhat i see in this song is the artist losing one of his loved ones. whether it be a friend or a family member. and now, once he's gone, it seems he can feel him/her there with him. but every time he looks around, he sees nothing and remembers his loss. now the artist is just searching for a way to stay alive without him

    General Commentthis song is truly amazing and I can't figure out why it didnt do a lot better than it did, Im the only person I know whose ever heard this song. its about someone dying I know but I like to think of it as a girl (or guy i guess) who you were really in love with and then you broke up and its really devestating, thats what I think about in this song

    General CommentI agree with sic n twisted. I've heard that it was written about someone who died. But, to me, it talks of someone you're no longer with. After me and my ex broke up, I used to listen to this song a lot, cuz the words were exactly what was going through my head.

    General CommentThe song, to me means that he's had someone close to him die. I've seen them live, and they really get into their shows, one of the best bands to break out this year by far.
