"Breathe" as written by Stephanie Kay Bentley and Mary Holladay Lamar....
I can feel the magic floating in the air
Being with you get's me that way
I watch the sunlight dance across your face
And I've never been this swept away

All my thoughts just seem to settle on the breeze
When I'm lying wrapped up in your arms
The whole world just fades away
The only thing I hear
Is the beating of your heart

'Cause I can feel you breathe
It's washing over me
And suddenly I'm melting into you
There's nothing left to prove
Baby, all we need is just to be
Caught up in the touch
Slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's suppose to be
I can feel you breathe, just breathe

In a way I know my heart is waking up
As all the walls come tumbling down
Closer than I've ever felt before
And I know, and you know
There's no need for words right now

I can feel you breathe
Washing over me
And suddenly I'm melting into you
There's nothing left to prove
Baby, all we need is just to be
Caught up in the touch
Slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's suppose to be
I can feel you breathe, just breathe

Caught up in the touch
Slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's suppose to be
I can feel you breathe, just breathe

I can feel the magic floating in the air
Being with you gets me that way

    General Comment|This song is about being absolutely perfectly in love before any of the magic fades. I think its unrealistic to find a love thats like this forever, but its the sweetest thing while it lasts. I like the line about "theres no need for words right now". Once you can share a perfect silence with another person, you know you'r ein love

    General CommentHearing this song makes me feel like I'm the one who's in love! Haha but this song is just about that one person in your life, that one thing that really matters to you. Whenever you think about him, you feel all fluttery. Whenever you see him, you fall in love again. Whenever you're with him, everything else seems nonexistent. I think the most comforting and wonderful feeling in this world is being so close to someone and then breathing in and out at the same time, and then hearing their heart beat and believing that it's in sync with your own.
    There's nothing else like it

    General CommentIt gave me chills when I first listened to it, but then it got overplayed. Now a couple contestants on "American Idol" have butchered it.

    General CommentThis song makes me think about a time I felt truly complete--in the arms of someone I loved--and I will never forget that feeling as long as I live.
