I'm breathing the air
The air I always breathe
I don't have a lot
I want someone to share it with me
I really only want a few things
They've all been taken away
What does the next life bring
I just want to feel O.K.
I'm searching forever
For someone or something
I want to be high
And I want someone to love me
I've spent twenty three years now
Trying to get by
Other people make it day to day
I still wonder why
I really only had a few thing
They've all turned to tears
One tried to kill me
The other kept me here
I'm still here

    oh my god...i don't mean to be all cliche, but it's like they ripped open my chest and spelled out exactly what i feel day to day, and yes, i do really realize how cheesy i just sounded....

    I know this song was about 6 years old at the time, but I can relate this song to my 23rd year. Although I won't go into it here, it and the year after were absolutely horrific.
