Breathless

I wrote this a couple of years ago when I was in a challenging new relationship. 

 

Since then it's found a new home in my new book, tentatively titled Rise From the Fall. 

The book will have at least an album worth of original lyrics, some new, some already on here.

Verse 1:

She was sitting there in silence
trying to find the words she thought might
change everything.

Then she said she didn't know how to do this
with everything she'd been through
And i knew she thought goodbye might be on the edge.

Chorus:

All I could say was nothing new is easy,
didn't think it was meant to be.
But I'd spend everyday I could
showing her how special she is.

Cause i know everyday she isn't near
It's harder to breathe
And no matter how many days go by
There isn't a time i see her
She doesn't take my breathe away

So it has to mean something that you always leave me breathless.

Verse 2:

Then as you moved closer,
put your arms around my neck
I know you couldn't hear it
But all i could do was pray
"God, please don't let her leave."

And when she kissed me
I knew there was a still a chance
And even though I'm a man
I'll be damned if I didn't almost cry

Chorus:

So all I could say was nothing new is easy,
didn't think it was meant to be.
But I'd spend everyday I could
showing her how special she is.

Cause i know everyday she isn't near
It's harder to breathe
And no matter how many days go by
There isn't a time i see her
She doesn't take my breathe away

So it has to mean something that you always leave me breathless.

Bridge:

So this day or the next
Doesn't matter how long it takes
As long as you're a part of me
I know it'll all make sense

Chorus:

And all I could say was nothing new is easy,
didn't think it was meant to be.
But I'd spend everyday I could
showing her how special she is.

Cause i know everyday she isn't near
It's harder to breathe
And no matter how many days go by
There isn't a time i see her
She doesn't take my breathe away

So it has to mean something that you always leave me breathless.
