How to Breathe
Verse I- 
                Darling I've forgotten how to breathe
                Bring me back to life I beg you please
                I can't hear you whispering to me 
                Tell me if your're there, 'cuz I can't see

                I tell you that nothing in me's changed
                But Dearest I think that I've gone insane
                All these voices clawing through my mind
                Scream that you are leaving me behind

Chorus-
                It's not like you've never said you were leaving before
                It's not like you've never said you couldn't take anymore
                But Darling I am so unsure, if you're gone this time for good
                Or if you'll stay here in my arms, like I'd always hoped you would

Verse II- 
                I'm still here waiting all by myself
                Collecting dust I'm sittin on the shelf
                 Wishing you had taught me how to breathe
                My starving lungs have taught me ev'rything
            
                Happy endings happen for them all
                But guys like me are doomed to always fall
                When you left me behind you left for good
                Wishing me farewell you ran as fast as you good
                        
                                    ~Chorus~
Verse III-
                 Ev'rything within me tries to scream
                 Nothing in my sorry heart can dare to even dream
                 My eyes flutter open one last time
                 I barely see your hand is holding mine

                 You whisper to me telling how to breathe
                  You understand that you can never really leave
                  Here with you i can now finally breathe
                   I know that you've given ev'rything
Chorus II-
                   It's not like you never said you were leaving before
                   Its not like you never said you couldn't take anymore
                   Darling now your hear with me this time for good
                   Holding me forever, like I'd always hoped you would
