Show Me How to Breathe

The fresh air, it reminds me So does the spring-like breeze The quadrants that I've walked through The rustle in the trees The world keeps turning 'round me So smoothly I can't see Still I'm frozen in this moment Someone show me how to breathe Thought I'd be gone by now But these plans of mine have changed This place looks so familiar But I feel like I'm estranged My hopes, my doubts, my fears Are they worth being released? The end lays on the horizon It's seen, but never reached Oh, it tears apart my life sometimes But I just can't seem to leave Can I find joy in this sacrifice? Someone show me how to breathe I know I've gotten better But it hurts it's been so long They say there's no right way to live But I just know mine is wrong More nights of self-destruction And they will catch up to me Now my fears are paralyzing Someone show me how to breathe Thought I'd be gone by now But these plans of mine have changed This place looks so familiar But I feel like I'm estranged My hopes, my doubts, my fears Are they worth being released? The end lays on the horizon It's seen, but never reached Oh, it tears apart my life sometimes But I just can't seem to leave Can I find joy in this sacrifice? Someone show me how to breathe Thought I'd never be done But suddenly the time has come What I once wished to throw away Now suddenly I beg to stay There's so much that I didn't say But here and now, we're parting ways The fresh air, it reminds me So does the spring-like breeze The quadrants that I've walked through The rustle in the trees I leave for good tomorrow But feel anything but free Could I somehow freeze this moment? Someone show me how to breathe My hopes, my doubts, my fears Are they worth being released? The end lays on the horizon It's seen, but never reached Oh, it tears apart my life sometimes But I just can't seem to leave Can I find joy in this sacrifice? Someone show me how to, show me how to breathe... Oh, it tears apart my life sometimes But I just can't seem to leave Can I find joy in this sacrifice? Someone show me how to breathe Someone show me how to breathe

You are alright if you are breathing fresh air rather than that through a tube! Aloha!
