Breathing

I used to sit alone in a crowded room
I used to think of home and how I refused to let it go
To let it go
They saw my tears but didn't know what to do
When I slipped in no one could pull me through
Except for you
Common courtesy,
Met you shook your hand
Irrevocably changed
Cause now you got me laughin', got me smilin'
For a while there, I wasn't breathin'
I owe you an apology;
Glad that you caught me
I used to pretend I was someone I'm not
Used to think of happiness as something to be lost
Never found
Then I saw you there,
My eyes reflected in your stare
Maybe somehow, maybe it wasn't a lie, lie, lie.
That you could have me laughin'
have me smilin'
For a while there, I wasn't breathing
I owe you an apology;
I wouldn't have caught me
I used to live in an empty world;
no one to wipe away my tears
I used to stay in a quiet place;
No one to laugh at my fears
Common courtesy,
my eyes in your stare
Then I figured out that you lived there too
You have me laughin,
have me smiling
For a while here, I wasn't breathing
I owe you an apology
Glad that you caught me.
