Breath Of Life

Album: Snow White And The Huntsman Soundtrack (2012)
  • Ha oh
    I was looking for a breath of life
    A little touch of heavenly light
    But all the choirs in my head sang no
    To get a dream of life again
    A little of vision of the start and the end
    But all the choirs in my head sang no

    But I only needed one more touch
    Another taste of heavenly rush
    And I believe, I believe it so
    And I only needed one more touch
    Another taste of devouring rush
    And I believe, I believe it so

    Whose side am I on, whose side am I?
    Whose side am I on, whose side am I?

    And the fever began to spread
    From my heart down to my legs
    But the room was so quiet oh
    And although I wasn't losing my mind
    It was a chorus so sublime
    But the room is too quiet (oh, the fever)

    I was looking for a breath of life,
    A little touch of heavenly light
    But all the choirs in my head sang no (I believe it)
    To get a dream of life again
    A little vision of the start and the end
    But all the choirs in my head sang no

    Ha oh
    Ha oh
    It's a harder way
    And it's come to claim her
    And I always say
    We should be together
    I can see below
    'Cause there's something in here
    And if you are gone
    I will not belong here

    And I started to hear it again
    But this time it wasn't the end
    And the room was so quiet, oh
    And my heart is a hollow plain
    For the devil to dance again
    And the room was too quiet, oh

    I was looking for a breath of life
    A little touch of heavenly light
    But all the choirs in my head sang no Writer/s: FLORENCE LEONTINE MARY WELCH, ISABELLA JANET FLORENTINA SUMMERS
