I held my breath
And closed my eyes
On our very first time of passion,
of glee
"Are you sure you want to do this?
Baby,
Breathe."

I held my breath
And your hand
As you lay beside me,
Asleep.
I shook you once and thought the worst,
You looked at me and said,
"Baby,
Breathe."

I held my breath
As you said to me
"This isn't what I want for us,
For me.
Do you understand what I'm saying?
Baby,
Breathe."

I hold my breath
As I try to live
For a little longer, to stay with you.
To me
You say, "Just relax,
It's over now.
Be free, Baby, free.
Hold my hand, end your pain,
Baby,
Just breathe."

I hold my breath
When I wake up
As you sit beside me,
Alseep.
"Wake up, I'm okay.
Look, I'm alive.
Baby,
Breathe."

I hold my breath
And realize
This is just a dream.
I look at you, you hold your breath,
I touch you and say,
"Baby,
Breathe."

I hold my breath
As you let yours out
And you know that it is me.
You close your eyes,
And slowly cry
And remember that you should
Breathe.

You hold your breath
Every day
That marks the death of me.
You shed some tears
Then walk away,
As I whisper,
"Baby,
Breathe."

We hold our breath
As days pass
When you finally join me.
You take my hand
We both say,
"Baby,
Breathe."
