Breathing When I’m Speaking

Listen here:


Well I set myself straight Drove a nail through the wall I set myself straight Kept my bills in my wallet

I set my alarm Woke up to its call I’d count all the kills But my heart won’t allow it

But I’m breathing when I’m speaking your name And all the rest are just hands on my neck I’m breathing when I’m speaking your name

I heard something outside So I opened the door I saw so many crimes That were treated like jokes

Nobody born breathing wants to fall into line Or wait in some hallway With your hands and your hopes

But I’m breathing when I’m speaking your name And all the rest are just hands on my neck I’m breathing when I’m speaking your name

I’d speak for myself But I’m not always sure I’d speak for my friends But we’re in different places

We just meet when we can Then we're back out the door We meet when we can Then we're back to the races

But I’m breathing when I’m speaking your name And all the rest are just hands on my neck I’m breathing when I’m speaking your name
