Breathe

Words & Music by Per Gessle

(Breathe your love)

I gotta come down,
I’ve been awake for far too long
My eyes look torn, they were so strong
I wore the crown, I wrote the song,
Now it’s fading
My heart was open
Like a window to a summer breeze

I breathed (breathe) your love, I filled my lungs and veins
And I breathed (breathe) your love until I felt the pain
And like rain (breathe) it slipped away

I tried to find out
What love was really all about
Behind the curtain waits the sky
It’s rare I feel enough to cry,
I’m drying up inside
My life was open
Oh, like a window to the summer breeze

I breathed (breathe) (I breathed) your love, I filled my lungs and veins
And I breathed (breathe) (I breathed) your love until I met the pain
And like rain (breathe) it slipped away, just like a little rain

I breathed (I breathed) your love and nothing stayed the same
Yes, I breathed (breathe) (I breathed) your love and filled my heart in vain
Cos like rain (breathe) it slipped away, oh, yeah, just like rain it swept away

(Breathe your love)
I breathed your love and nothing stayed the same
(Breathe your love)
Oh, I breathed your love just like a little rain
(Breathe)
It slipped away
Oh, I breathed
(Breathe)
And nothing stayed the same
