And All I Can Do Is Breathe

And my tongue is tied in a knot,
and my teeth chatter, I'm oh, so cold.
But my heart is still.
Stiller then a stone.
And my breath gets caught,
somewhere between lies and truth.
And the legs I once called my own,
now lie on the floor with my soul.

And I'm breathing.
Just breathing.
'Cause that's all I can do since you found me.
And that's all I can do since you held me.
Breathe and hope,
breathe and hope,
it will never end.

And my head is spinning oh, so fast,
I can't think.
Make this room stop moving,
I can't see.
And my arms are formed of rubber,
and my ears refuse to hear.
All I see are the inner workings,
of what used to be my heart.

And I'm breathing.
Just breathing.
'Cause that's all I can do since you found me.
And that's all I can do since you held me.
Breathe and hope,
breathe and hope,
it will never end.

My blood runs thick and cold,
honey coating my veins.
Honey, my heart won't beat.
Muscles trying and failing,
moving and staying still.
And my movement is caught,
between my honor and your words.
And I have no grasp on me anymore.

And I'm breathing.
Just breathing.
'Cause that's all I can do since you found me.
And that's all I can do since you held me.
Breathe and hope,
breathe and hope,
it will never end.

And I'm lying here,
wondering where you've been.
As my lungs work,
but myself won't.

And I'm breathing.
Just breathing.
'Cause that's all I can do since you found me.
And that's all I can do since you held me.
Breathe and hope,
breathe and hope,
it will never end.

Breathing,
and hoping you never leave.
