On The Verge of a Breakdown

I never had to think twice about my intentions

For the first time ever, i found something i wanted

Something i felt needed to belong to me

Ever since the encounter with you, things' been different

I've changed dramatically, i've become more sensitive

A million thoughts, a million dreams flash inside my mind

Nothing has been able to escape out of my heart

How else can i put it, i think you're my strength

The reason i'm still breathing and not wanting to escape

And sometimes i wonder if i'll ever be on the verge of a breakdown

I'm panicking right now, you just can't see me due to our distance

I don't need to hint anything to you, you know how i am now

But i can't stop the affect if i'm on the verge of a breakdown
