Breathe your life.

I've got to come down
I've been awake for far too long
My eyes look torn, they were so strong
I wore the crown, I wrote the song
Now it's fading
My heart was open
Like a window to a summer breeze

I breathed your love,
I filled my lungs and veins
And I breathed your love
Until I felt the pain
And like rain it slipped away

I tried to find out
What love was really all about
Behind the curtain waits the sky
It's rare I feel enough to cry
I'm drying up inside
My life was open
Like a window to the summer breeze

I breathed your love,
I filled my lungs and veins
And I breathed your love 
Until I met the pain and like rain
It slipped away, just like a little rain.

I breathed your love 
And nothing stayed the same.
Yes, I breathed your love 
And filled my heart in vain 'cause like rain 
It slipped away, just like rain it swept away.
