Breathe

Have you ever been in love
Then you know just what I'm talking about
Its like when you really know
You finally found the person you want
And you wanna spend the rest of your life
I thought I've been there before 
But now that I'm sure,
I finally found somebody who cares
I've given my heart and my soul to her
And I just want the whole world to know 

[Chorus]
You're the reason that I breathe
I want you to know that 
If you were to leave, then I couldn't go back
My life will be incomplete without you here 
You're the reason that I breathe

Ladies if you got a man
Fellas if you got a girl 
Why don't you tell em that they mean the whole world
To you, you, you, you 
You're the reason that I breathe 

The feeling you get when you call them
And they don't answer and feels like
You're whole world's about to stop(stop) 
And you can't believe somehow,
Somebody makes you feel this way 
I'm talking about you can't eat(eat)
You can't sleep(sleep) 
You cant breathe at all 
They're like the puzzle thats been missing in your life 
Why don't you look em in they eye and tell them 
 

[Chorus]
You're the reason that I breathe
I want you to know that 
If you were to leave, then I couldn't go back
My life will be incomplete without you here 
You're the reason that I breathe
Ladies if you got a man
Fellas if you got a girl 

Why don't you tell em that they mean the whole world
To you, you, you, you 
You're the reason that I breathe
 

[Bridge]
I was broken before I met you
Now I ain't trippin like I used to
And I gotta say 
That you made my life much better
I can barely breathe, I can barely breathe 
When your not with me (ohhh) 

[Chorus]
You're the reason that I breathe
I want you to know that 
If you were to leave, then I couldn't go back
My life will be incomplete without you here 
You're the reason that I breathe [x2] 

If you got a man uhh, if you got a girl 
Why don't you tell em that they mean the whole world 
To you, you, you, you (woaah)
If theres somebody out there, just like me
Put your hands up and tell her
Youre the reason that I breathe..

My notes on this song: a friend of mine in Second Life sent me the link to Conor Maynard's cover of this song, I don't know who the original artist is or who wrote it; I only know that these lyrics couldn't be more accurate with regard to my feelings for Him. Please, God, please help us.

Lovely lyrics I felt just like that 20 years ago and I really was in love. I guess Il never know truley why it ended but at the time it was special and she was the reason I breathed. Wherever she is now I hope she is happy and will never forget the good times.

wow!
