Help me breathe

HELP ME BREATHE

When we met-
you, found me bleeding...
Barely breathing-
but you saved me... you rescued me

On that day- 
I was, torn and tattered...
But all that mattered, 
was, you cared for me, you sheltered me

Bridge
I should have known that, there’s no way it could last
I fell hard way too fast, I can’t live in the past
I’ve got to breathe to stay alive, I need air to survive

Chorus
So wont you-help me breathe...oh baby
Help me breathe...oh oh oh oh
I can’t breathe today,
cause, you left yesterday
And when you left…
you took… my breath away
So wont you-help me breathe...oh baby
Help me breathe...oh oh oh oh
I can’t breathe today,
cause, you left yesterday
And when you left…
you took… my breath away

Here I am-
choking, on the pieces...
the pieces of what... 
used to be... of you and me

Here I am- 
drowning... in despair...
in despair cause...
there aint no air...
without you there

Bridge
I should have known that, there’s no way it could last
I fell hard way too fast, now,I can’t live in the past
I’ve got to breathe to stay alive... I need air to survive


Chorus
So wont you-help me breathe-oh baby
Help me breathe-oh oh oh oh
I can’t breathe today- cause, you left yesterday
And when you left...you took my breath away
So wont you-help me breathe-oh baby
Help me breathe-oh oh oh oh
I can’t breathe today- cause, you left yesterday
And when you left-you took my breath away

Chorus repeat fade

    John, with sadly beautiful emotion and artistry you’ve captured that devastating crushing and breathless feeling one has when their beloved leaves them. An affecting lyric my talented friend. Warmest wishes always.. ~Susan

    I've been watching the Ken Burns documentary on Country Music this week. My friend, we were born at the wrong time. Check it out if you haven't. Really cool John. Keep singing my friend.
