Breathing Knives

Breathing Knives
By Kevin Robey
October 29, 2013
 
Verse 1
With all I can’t un-hide
There’s beauty left inside
With all I can’t deny
There’s nowhere left to lie
 
To those who cannot see
The reason for my misery
To those who can’t relate
Here’s something to contemplate
 
Chorus 1
I can’t break through
I can’t despise
This idolized disguise
 
I can’t see clearly
Breathing knives
Fighting for my life
 
Verse 2
For everything I’ll never know
I’ll give my shine, I’ll let it show
For everything I’ll never taste
I’ll give you mine, won’t go to waste
 
To anyone who sees like me
Follow me and let’s be free
To anyone who won't outrun
Lies we left, when we were done
 
Chorus (repeat)
I can’t break through
I can’t despise
This idolized disguise
 
I can’t see clearly
Breathing knives
Fighting for my life
 
Verse 3
Maybe it will be all right
No reasons left to fight
Maybe it is just a dream
That's bursting at the seams
 
One day soon I think I’ll know
It’s better now than it will show
One day soon I’ll change my ways
I think I’ll start, maybe today
 
Chorus 3
I’m breaking through
I’m shining bright
This never ending light
 
I’m seeing farther
Breathing right
This never ending fight
