Breathe Your Name Lyrics

It's every day
I'm in this place
I feel this way
I feel the same
It's every day
I'm in this place
I feel this way
I feel the same

Is it all inside my head
Is it all inside my head
I'll view the list
And take my pick
I view my faith
And make a choice
'Cause it's nobody else's but mine

But you are in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name

So many days within this race
I need the truth
I need some grace
I need the path
To find my place
I need some truth
I need some grace
The part of you
That's part of me
Will never die
Will never leave
And it's nobody else's but mine

You are in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name

You'll view the list
And take your pick
You'll view my faith
And make a choice
'Cause it's nobody else's but yours

And you're in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name

'Cause you're in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name

I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name

Just a great song, whether you believe it is about God or not. Could be just about the feeling of being "in love", which means in love, with anything or anyone.

This is one of my favorite Christian songs. It's so catchy! Sixpence is pretty great.

Leigh Nash is awesome. This song rocks!

An error occured.

really i thought it was like about a guy.

An error occured.

I think it's about her and this guy that she kinda wants to sleep with or something. So in the first verse she's saying about how she always feels like this, and in the second she's saying that it's her choice and what she's trying to decide based on.

The chorus is all about how he makes her feel, and how she can't go any further than 'breathe your name'.

Then in the next one she's telling him that it's his choice whether or not he's gonna wait for her and stick around or whether he'll leave her because of the constrictions of her religion.

This is probably all complete crap, but it's what I like to imagine the song to be about.

Leigh is a christian, it's NOT about her wanting to sleep with a guy.

You know, holey, I never thought about it that way, but the line "breathe your name" could mean that she's in a physically excited state and all she can do is moan her bf's name.

It's not about her wanting to sleep with a guy, get your friggin' mind out of the gutter.

I think it's definitely about a guy. She has choices (other guys interested in her) verse: "I view the list and take my pick and he has choices too (other girls interested in him) verse: "You view the list and take your pick," but they choose each other.

Due to the nature of Sixpence's Christian rock lyrics, this is probably a lengthy yadda yadda about God. For example, notice: "You'll view the list And take your pick You'll view my faith And make a choice 'Cause it's nobody else's but yours "

Really? A "lengthy yadda yadda"? Nice to know you have respect for people's religion.

Normally I despise Christian music because it's so bland, insipid, and utterly toothless, but I love Sixpence for some reason. This is a multivalent song--if you wanted to focus on the Christian aspect, you could, but it could also be about romance. I choose to follow the latter interpretation, partly because I first heard the song on pop radio and I have a hard time believing that it would play a Christian song.

Sorry, but it makes no sense to think that this could be about romance in any way.

"You'll view the list And take your pick You'll view my faith And make a choice 'Cause it's nobody else's but yours "

How could that be referencing romance?

The chorus sounds like she's talking about a really good orgasm :-) but that doesn't mesh with the rest of the lyrics.
