(VERSE ONE)
I just need something so I can deal
My heart's tired of all surreal
And I don't want to just pretend
Sometimes I wish it all would end

(Chorus)
If only I could be set free
(I need to breathe)
But the grief's so much apart of me
(I need to breathe)
Wrapped in my shame, caught in my pain
I don't see how this will bring any gain
(I need to breathe)
Oh, oh just breathe…..

(Bridge)
I need to breathe
Let go just breathe
I need to breathe
Forget it all and breathe
Oh, oh just breathe

(VERSE TWO)
I wonder if I could forget your name
Would I be free of this painful game
This maze of sorrow at last would end
And I could finally pass the bend

(Chorus)
If only I could be set free
(I need to breathe)
But the grief's so much apart of me
(I need to breathe)
Wrapped in my shame, caught in my pain
I don't see how this will bring any gain
(I need to breathe)
Oh, oh just breathe…..

(VERSE THREE)
I push pain away to tomorrow
Hoping all the grief will follow
But your memory still remains
And I feel the fire of a thousand pains

(Chorus)
If only I could be set free
(I need to breathe)
But the grief's so much apart of me
(I need to breathe)
Wrapped in my shame, caught in my pain
I don't see how this will bring any gain
(I need to breathe)
Oh, oh just breathe…..

(Bridge)
I need to breathe
Let go just breathe
I need to breathe
Forget it all and breathe
Oh, oh just breathe
