Don't Miss It

Album: Hundred More Years (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This celebration of life's little moments contains the lyric, "Breathe before your breath runs out." Francesca Battistelli told American Songwriter magazine: "Ben Glover and I were writing this song about noticing the simple things in life and slowing down in enough time to appreciate them. We needed that perfect line to take us into the chorus, and I just said this out loud. It was just right."
