IF I CAN BREATHE

Deep in the night I can tell what I’ve found just by breathing
Murmuring shadows that dance as they glide round the corners of my mind
Body weak but my heart is stronger than it was ever before
I don’t have a choice, I know it’s down to me if I am ever going to make it ashore

If I can breathe just another day
Then I can see everyone around who never thought I could take it
If I can breathe just another day
Then I can see how to find a way to tell them I’m going to make it

The night comes to call on me, stars watching over me restless
Then comes the day, see the sun’s outer haze fill the smallness of this place
Feel a heat so intoxicating, it capsizes the light
Giving me the strength to carry on if only for a day, and if I do I’ll be fine

If I can breathe just another day
Then I can see everyone around who never thought I could take it
If I can breathe just another day
Then I can see how to find a way to tell them I’m going to make it

If I can breathe just another day
Then I can see everyone around who never thought I could make it
If I can breathe just another day
Then I can see how to find a way to tell them I’m going to make it
Now I can breathe
