  • I wouldn't compliment myself for what I've become
    Tell her I owe it to her
    Tell her I owe it to her
    I wouldn't praise myself for every good thing I've done
    Tell her I owe it to her
    Tell her I owe it to her

    Tell her I owe it to every heartbeat
    Tell her I owe it to every exhale
    Tell her I owe it to, owe it to her
    Hands upon my chest

    Oh, won't you breathe life into these dead lungs I keep under my coat oh oh oh
    And keep life warm against the cold night as our bodies grow old oh oh oh

    I don't want to give up and I know when to breathe
    Believe me, I owe it to her
    Tell her I owe it to her

    Tell her I owe it to every heartbeat
    Tell her I owe it to every inhale
    Tell her I owe it to, owe it to her
    Hands upon my chest

    Oh, won't you breathe life into these dead lungs I keep under my coat oh oh oh
    And keep life warm against the cold night as our bodies grow old oh oh oh
    Oh, won't you breathe life into these dead lungs I keep under my coat oh oh oh
    And keep life warm against the cold night as our bodies grow old oh oh oh

    Take my silence as a warning
    I will not deter your mourning

    Take my silence as a warning
    I will not deter your mourning

    Oh, won't you breathe life into these dead lungs I keep under my coat oh oh oh
    And keep life warm against the cold night as our bodies grow old oh oh oh
    Oh, won't you breathe life into these dead lungs I keep under my coat oh oh oh
    And keep life warm against the cold night as our bodies grow old oh oh oh
    (Won't you breathe life into these dead lungs I keep under my coat oh oh oh)
    (And keep life warm against the cold night as our bodies grow old oh oh oh) Writer/s: Jack Garratt, Joseph Ernst Dosik
