Breathe


More by this author
I held my breath for the longest time
Held it and hoped that you’ll be mine
I kept on walking and acting like nothing was wrong
Even though its you that I long
And you may not feel the same
But take my love and keep it forever
I waited and waited and finally you came
That day was amazing, do you remember?

With you holding me close but the days were to short
And with the words you told me and you wished I’d never go
Your eyes shining so bright with love it shows
Your words meaning so much more than what is said
Your voice that’s always stuck in my head
And together we just sit there and talk about what we love
And together we walk there and those who talk we just shove

So I find myself asking those same questions as before
Can I keep holding my breath for this long?
Maybe I need something more
More than a maybe he’ll open his eyes up and see
That maybe it should be him and me
Maybe he’s not worth it
Worth me losing every day when he walks by
Worth me losing my mind and telling myself not to cry

I’m still wondering if we will only be friends
Because I don’t want to lose you
I want you till the very end
I really want to call you my boo
But I don’t know what to do
So please help me out so I can exhale
And I can’t take it if I fail
I can’t stop wondering if I do move on then what if he opens his eyes
And see that I’m going crazy jut for him
Will he already know or will it be a surprise

Here it goes I’m going to breathe and maybe he’ll see
That I want it to be him and me
Because I don’t want to lose you
I really want to call you my boo
I just got to remember how this went
Inhale exhale oh I almost forgot
But I know this is it I was sent
And I don’t care if I get caught

I’m holding my breath for the longest time
Holding it and hoping that you’ll be mine
I keep on walking and acting like nothing was wrong
Even though its you that I long
And you may not feel the same
But take my love and keep it forever
I’m waiting and waiting and finally you came
That day was amazing, do you remember?

When I told you that I like you
And you said really because I love you
Oh here it goes he’s my boo
And I can finally breathe
And you can finally see
