I’ll Keep Breathing

Words & Music by David Willersdorf

Verse 1:

Nothing I carry is nearly so heavy
As what you and I, we have walked away from
These hopes in my heart
How they’ve strangled me slowly
They’ve left me the shell of the man I once was
‘Cause all of my hopes were with you
All of my hopes were with you

Chorus:

I’ll keep breathing, breathing
Keeping my love here for you
I’ll keep breathing, breathing
Keeping my love here for you
Oh

Verse 2:

Remind me, what could’ve been
The life that we should’ve lived
It’s lying so empty, so broken and bare
The winds of my misery
The sweet, bitter memories
So hollow the heart that now burns in my chest
‘Cause all of my heart was with you
All of my heart was with you

Bridge:

Thinking ‘bout what mighta been
Remembering how it used to be
When you put the song in my heart
How can we have been in love
I gave my heart, it got burnt up
Now all that I have are these memories of you
