Breathe

Album: Fearless (2008)
Charted: 72
  • I see your face in my mind as I drive away,
    'Cause none of us thought it was gonna end that way
    People are people,
    And sometimes we change our minds
    But it's killing me to see you go after all this time

    Music starts playin' like the end of a sad movie,
    It's the kinda ending you don't really wanna see
    'Cause it's tragedy and it'll only bring you down,
    Now I don't know what to be without you around

    And we know it's never simple,
    Never easy
    Never a clean break, no one here to save me
    You're the only thing I know like the back of my hand,

    And I can't,
    Breathe,
    Without you,
    But I have to,
    Breathe,
    Without you,
    But I have to

    Never wanted this, never wanna see you hurt
    Every little bump in the road I tried to swerve
    People are people,
    And sometimes it doesn't work out,
    Nothing we say is gonna save us from the fall out

    And we know it's never simple,
    Never easy
    Never a clean break, no one here to save me
    You're the only thing I know like the back of my hand,

    And I can't,
    Breathe,
    Without you,
    But I have to,
    Breathe,
    Without you,
    But I have to

    It's two am
    Feelin' like I just lost a friend
    Hope you know it's not easy,
    Easy for me

    It's two am
    Feelin' like I just lost a friend
    Hope you know this ain't easy,
    Easy for me

    And we know it's never simple,
    Never easy
    Never a clean break, no one here to save me

    I can't,
    Breathe,
    Without you,
    But I have to,
    Breathe,
    Without you,
    But I have to

    Breathe,
    Without you,
    But I have to

    Sorry (oh) sorry
    Sorry sorry
    Sorry sorry Writer/s: Taylor Swift, Colbie Caillat

  • Erika from Anthony, Nm"Breathe" goes in my life because my BFF moved away from me and she left me out to hung dry with the bullies in school. But I can't blame her. If you're reading this Monica - I MISS YOU!
  • Amos from Miami, FlTaylor Swift is my favorite singer! Breathe is my favorite song too! She & Colbie sing so well together! Taylor should SO be on Oprah! I love you Taylor! (Miley Cyrus isn`t that good)

    Your BIGGEST fan,
    Julia :-) i luv u!
  • Ashleigh from ?????, MoThis song reminds me of my friend. She met this guy at camp, the got to be really close. (even i got to be good frinds with him) Then once the week was over they had to go their separate ways and they live miles and miles apart. A phone call only gives you so much.
  • Emily from Around Chicago, IlIn the booklet that comes w/the CD, there are hidden messages in the lyrics. You take all the capital letters and put them in order to spell a phrase. Breathe's message is: IM SORRY IM SORRY IM SORRY.
  • Hope from Naperville, Ili can relate so much. i just lost my best friend...
  • Emily from Around Chicago, IlFavorite next to love story! And I really like Taylor Swift! I love country and I love how her voice sounds with Colbie. It was very creative.
  • Randy from Reading, PaI competed against Taylor in karaoke contests at Pat Garrets Roadhouse Bar in Straustown PA. I didn't think she was very good then and still think she is overrated as a singer.
  • Stephie from Portland, OrAbsolute favorite on the whole album, next to "Fifteen"!!! Must listen, beautiful lyrics and guitar.
