Breath You Take
by George Strait



He looks up from second base
Dad's up in the stands
He saw the hit, the run, the slide
There ain't no bigger fan

In the parking lot after the game
He said "Dad I thought you had a plane to catch?"
He smiled and said "Yeah son I did"

But life's not the breath you take
The breathing in and out
That gets you through the day
Ain't what its all about
You just might miss the point
Trying to win the race
Life's not the breaths you take
But the moments that take your breath away

Fast forward fifteen years
And a thousand miles away
Boys built a life, he's got a wife
And a baby due today
He hears a voice saying "I made it son"
Says "I told you Dad, you didn't have to come"
He smiles and says "Yeah I know you did"

But life's not the breath you take
The breathing in and out
That gets you through the day
Ain't what its all about
You just might miss the point
Trying to win the race
Life's not the breathes you take
But the moments that take your breath away

Just like it took my breath away when she was born
Just like it took my breath away when Dad took his last that morn

Life's not the breathes you take
The breathing in and out
That gets you through the day
Ain't what it's all about
You just might miss the point
If you don't slow down the pace
Life's not the breathes you take
But the moments that take your breath away
