"Breathe" as written by and Joseph Washbourn....
A friend I had once told me
Such an unusual story
That other men did breathe in
But never did breathe back out

This tale reminds me of you
Although a different shade of blue
You've gotta always take, and never give
This is not how to live

You've gotta breathe in and out
You've gotta spread a little love around

Although I don't know this for sure
It's just another knock at my door
Thinking of amusing all things that never did
And ill tell you when I find out
And show you what it is to breathe out
'Cause natural progression
Lends the lesson of your mind

You've gotta breathe in and out
You've gotta spread a little love around
You've gotta breathe in and out
You've gotta spread a little love around, oh

And I'm feeling you
Another way to be
Yeah yeah yeah
And I'm watching you
Breathe over me yeah yeah yeah
Breathing

I could tell the jack and ourie
Into this unusual story
It's a breath upon the window pain
So come on step out of the rain, yeah yeah
Though id like to think its the truth
You've become a deeper shade of blue
And in my eyes this comes as no surprise
There's nothing left for you, no

You've gotta breathe in and out
You've gotta spread a little love around
You've gotta breathe in and out
You've gotta spread a little love around, oh

Breathe in and out
You've gota breathe in and out

Breathe in and out
You've gotta breathe in and out

Breathe in and out
You've gotta breathe in and out

You've gotta
Breathe

    General CommentThere was this girl I liked which this song applies to perfectly. I did so much for and she was more than happy with the attention but she, for whatever, reason never did reciprocate the affection. It was frustrating. She wasn’t being rude she just didn’t know what to do.

    This song is about getting someone you want to be with to open up. After all, friendship and love is a 2-way street.
