WHEN I STOP BREATHING

When I stop breathing

Some things you just don’t forget 

a painful memory never easing 

and “I’m sorry” doesn’t make it disappear, no-oh…

cauz’ in the shadows… you’re still weeping

deep in your heart `n mind… lives a hurt that ever lingers

Oh why can’t I just turn it off…when it’s so… so easy for others?

I don’t know why I am the only one… seems like I’m the only one it bothers

oh-no nooo Why does it always gotta be…lovers…or fighters

Lovers or fighters… Lovers or Fighters

 

I hope /all things/ I can forgive

before I finally stop

I know/ it’s something/ I will at least forget

when I stop/ ~when I stop… when I stop breathing.

 

Some lines we should never… Ever cross

Cauz going back may not be… your say, hey.oh

Sometimes we.. we may not have a choice “to say, say noo..”

When it comes to “their way”… or your highway

Even as you cry, you still leave… or you just may… never ever…go

Why can’t we have it all…it happens?  It’s not like it never happens…

But oh no… our M.O…. is to make us suffer, suffer, suffer…oh

Why is it baby…why does it always have-ta be… lovers or … lovers or fighters

Lovers or fighters…  Lovers or Fighters

 

I hope /all things/ I can forgive

 before I finally stop

I know/ it’s something/ I will at least forget

when I stop/ ~when I stop/when I stop breathing…

It will finally no longer be… lovers or fighters…lovers or fighters

 

I hope /all things/ I can forgive

before I finally stop

I know/ it’s something/ I will at least forget

when I stop/ ~when I stop… when I stop breathing.
