Breathe

Album: Rock What You Got (2008)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • Bass player Matt Daly explained the background of this song to Christianity Today magazine: "I lost my grandfather about a year ago, and even when he was on his deathbed, there were so many things I didn't get to say. Looking back, I think to myself, 'Why didn't I ask him to tell me more stories about his childhood? Why didn't I spend more time with him?' For me, the song reminds us that for as long as we have breath in our lungs-no matter what the outcome or prognosis-we have to cherish each and every moment together."
