i got to the car. drove far. decided to stay away. with my foot on the gas. drove past. all of the shit i needed to say. i've waited 'till now for the right time. i've waited 'till now for the right time to tell. i've waited 'till now for the right time. i've waited 'till now to open up to you. and i can't breathe. swimming with you is the hardest. everything you do is so true. swimming with you is the hardest thing. and i won't hold my breath. and i won't hold my breath when i'm with you

    General Commenthe's trying to show this girl his heart, he knows what to say but would rather leave it be than trying to say anything that might make it awkward, he's found the time and once he's done it and told her how he feels he wont be at a loss for words ever again, he'll cherish there time together

    General Commentalright ive thought about this song alot and i want to change some stuff, ok he's trying to show the girl how he feels, and im thinking by swimming with you he dosnt mean talking to her i think he means being real like expressing the way he feels about her, and at the momment he would'nt want to make things awkward so he talks around it and then he's found the time and once he's poured his heart out to her he wont ever keep his feelings felt for himself

    General Commentat first i thought this song was about leaving someone. "and i won't hold my breath when i'm with you"

    but now, maybe, i think it is about expressing how he feels to someone and not holding back.

    General CommentWell, if he can't breathe when he's around her, it WOULD be quite hard to swim now wouldn't it? So if he's not holding his breath when he's swimming with her, he is most definitely drowning. Make sense?

    General Commenti think its about waiting for someone to make up their mind and you want them to change things between you two. or just waiting for them to say "ok, i love you." but you know its probably not going to happen. so you won't hold your breath. and swimming is a difficult task if you don't hold your breath.
