i may never get the chance to write this
so i'll just sing to you what's on my heart
and search my soul for something else
surprisingly i've not come very far

so i...

i thank you for this breath
it's everything i've wanted it to be
and i hope when i breathe next
it praises you, it praises you through me

i'd die one thousand deaths
if only it would help me to believe
as long as i have breath
this promise stands unbroken as a ring

i may never get the chance to write this
but i know you know 'cause you can read my heart
and search the world for something else that's like this
surprisingly i've not come very far

so i thank you for this breath

not i day goes by
that i don't try
to supress this feeling with a song

taken for granted
forgotten like the past
with words unspoken
i hope that this all lasts
we walk through this life
not knowing where to go
as i'm still broken
still wondering if you know
still wondering if you know that...

you've found a new way
to pierce every part of my heart
please come into this place
and show me everything you are

so i thank you for this breath

    General Commentlately i've been so blessed that the only words i can find to respond with are "thank you." this song is about seeing things as beautiful for what they are rather than being blind to that beauty because of what they are not.
