"Breathing" as written by and Danny Martinez....
I may walk slow but I’ll never walk backwards

Be honest with yourself
You never expected much from me
But how could I blame you
How could you have faith in me
I never had faith in myself
The times have changed
I won’t let this get in the way
No, not anymore
It’s not the man I am

I may walk slowly but I’ll never walk backwards
Progress is not how much you know
It’s how much of what you’ve learned has changed you
We’re all not the same

Everything that I’ve done to get to this point won’t be forgotten
From the debts that I’ve paid
And the scars that I’ve made
With my legacy laid
I will never die

What makes you think you’ve already won
I don’t go down so easily
Despite what you may think this might not end so peacefully
I'll take the hand that I’ve been dealt
And with everything that I've got, I'll persevere

I may walk slowly but I’ll never walk backwards
Progress is not how much you know
It’s how much of what you’ve learned has changed you
We’re all not the same

Everything that I’ve done to get to this point won’t be forgotten
From the debts that I’ve paid
And the scars that I’ve made
With my legacy laid
I will never die

I'll strive forward
Until my dying breath
I'll never stop
Until I've reached the end
I may walk slow but I’ll never walk backwards
This is all I am

I may walk slowly but I’ll never walk backwards
Progress is not how much you know
It’s how much of what you’ve learned has changed you
We’re all not the same

Everything that I’ve done to get to this point won’t be forgotten
From the debts that I’ve paid
And the scars that I’ve made
With my legacy laid
I will never die

    General Commenti think this song is about a boy, who is in a relationship that's fading. the girls made changes in her life and she's not the girl he's fell in love with, hence the "Is that you standing there?
    It can't be your heart.
    Cause it's not like before.
    Watch as it falls apart!"

    this seems to be a reoccuring thing to him, hence the "just like before he's on his own"

    girls also keep playing games with him,
    making him think that they have something between them that it never could fade and when it starts to fade out, he panics because he "can't breathe, is that you standing there?"

    i also believe she promised to keep his heart safe and they'll always be in love,

    General Commentthis song is based off os pslam 69 or so it says on their myspace. its about being lost and adrift, going through lifes challenges and not being able to make it on your own and needing God to come rescue. It kinda like a dialouge, calling out to God, not being like before you were with Him.

    or atleast that how i see it as
