Breathtaking

January 31, 2010
Tell me what you've always been terrified to say
Take a chance, Wonder if I'll say it back
Don't you dare try to tell me I can make it on my own
I'll make any sound just to capture your attention

I'll never be the girl to keep you from leaving and make you stay
Just need you to know before you go
My life flashed right before my eyes the moment that I met you
So will you let me ask before it's too late
And your slowly fading away in my rearview mirror
From a fimiliar drive after another goodbye
Are you always this breathtaking?

I'm positive that these cold nights
will always make it through, and see the break of day
With a tear in my eye, I promise to give you
the sweetest goodbye each time you take a step away

I'll never be the girl to keep you from leaving and make you stay
Just need you to know before you go
My life flashed right before my eyes the moment that I met you
So will you let me ask before it's too late
And your slowly fading away in my rearview mirror
From a fimiliar drive after another goodbye
Are you always this breathtaking?

I'm not too concerned that your smile
can't light up a small town girl's world
I cant help myself but to shiver when you say my name
People always change, but I pray you and I will stay the same


I'll never be the girl to keep you from leaving and make you stay
Just need you to know before you go
My life flashed right before my eyes the moment that I met you
So will you let me ask before it's too late
And your slowly fading away in my rearview mirror
From a fimiliar drive after another goodbye
Are you always this breathtaking?

Goodbyes are meant for lonely people in the rain
so let it come down pouring, and promise to hold me tight
Grant me your permission to stare at this perfection
Listen closely to my eyes screaming for a sight of you

I'll never be the girl to keep you from leaving and make you stay
Just need you to know before you go
My life flashed right before my eyes the moment that I met you
So will you let me ask before it's too late
And your slowly fading away in my rearview mirror
From a fimiliar drive after another goodbye
Are you always this breathtaking?

There will be another chance to reassure you it'll be okay
I'm confident, but still shaking to need you
It'd kill to see you go, but even so, there is one thing you should know
I'd give my final breathe to tell you that I love you.
