HOLDING MY BREATH FOR YOU.

Time’s not on my side
It’s running away like a thief in the night
But the warmth of your touch
And the smile in your eyes
Is telling me that I should stand and fight

I’m battered and bruised
And sometimes I’ll lose
And I surely will hit the ground
But if you’re there at my side
And you don’t count me out
I’m willing to go one more round

I’m holding my breath for you
I trust in my heart
Cos it keeps running to you
I won’t let you fall
If you give me your all
Come on save me, and I’ll save you right back

I’m holding my breath
Holding my breath
Holding my breath for you
I’m holding my breath
Holding my breath
Holding my breath for you

So much wisdom and so much grace
Too much hurt for one small face
Too many lessons in too short a time
So much love that just wasn’t mine


Minutes to hours and days into years
It’s taken so long but you’re finally here
People will wonder just where can he be
And when they ask you just tell them he’s holding his breath

I’m holding my breath for you
I trust in my heart
Cos it keeps running to you
I won’t let you fall
If you give me your all
Come on save me, and I’ll save you right back

I’m holding my breath
Holding my breath
Holding my breath for you
I’m holding my breath
Holding my breath
Holding my breath for you
