Distraught, cold and ill
He stops by the window
He cannot stand still
There's too much to fear
Another time
Or some other place
He could just cry
And the darkness would fade

(interlude)

Too much still to do
He shivers and weeps
He's begging to you
He's begging once more
The words he once wrote
Have left him forever
He can't stay afloat
He may as well drown

CHORUS
But he can't stop breathing
Although he really needs to
He cannot stop breathing (x a few)

(slight drum break, keyboard comes in)

He's finished and yet
He walks in the rain
He's soaking wet
And crying again
He knows it is done
And he cannot change
He isn't the one
He has lost his way

CHORUS

Instrumental verse with keyboard bit
