Hey there, boy,
you got me thinking 'bout
those long hours I spent
just waiting 'round.
I can't spend
another day without
living my life now.

And hey there, boy,
you got me screaming out
loud and still the silence
is all around.
Can't I spend
another day without
living someone else's life.

I want to climb
the highest mountain.
Reach the peak
and let it all sink in.
Look down at the world
without blinking.
Just to see a million people
looking back at me.
I want to sail
the widest ocean.
Feel the air
and catch it in my hand.
Look up at the sky
without thinking.
Just to see a million thoughts
crash down on me.
I wanna breathe.

Hey there, boy,
you got me a little loud.
I can't stand the thought
of not living out
there where the world
spins around and around.

I gotta leap.
I gotta run.
I gotta drive.
I can't spend
another day not
living my life.

I want to climb
the highest mountain.
Reach the peak
and let it all sink in.
Look down at the world
without blinking.
Just to see a million people
looking back at me.
I want to sail
the widest ocean.
Feel the air
and catch it in my hand.
Look up at the sky
without thinking.
Just to see a million thoughts
crash down on me.
I wanna breathe.

Hey there, boy
you're making me
wanna breathe.

I gotta leap.
I gotta run.
I gotta drive.
I can't spend
another day not
living my life.
I gotta breathe.

When the tides of life turn against you and the current upsets your boat, don't waste time and tears on what might have been, just lie on your back and float.

I love this! Keep up the good work! I love the title! This is amazing! Check out some of my work if you have some extra time! Keep writing! :)
