This was the debut single from Christian metal band Red. Guitarist Jasen Rauch explained the song in publicity materials: "On our own, life can lead us to dark places full of anger, mistakes and regrets. This song is about 'falling,' finally reaching the end of our rope, where we realize at last ... we need God. The chorus, 'Breathe Your life into me,' is a desperate cry for help, a plea for renewal, rebirth – even resurrection. It's about overcoming wounds and consequences we could never overcome alone."
