Athlete – Don't Hold Your Breath lyrics

Don't hold your breath cause we're running in circles
Silence runs along phone lines
I feel like I am swimming through pavements
And then the dark throws me a lifeline

I'll be the sky that lights up with fireworks
Whenever November comes
And you could be the greatest thing that has happened to me
Though I don't know you now

Don't hold your breath
Cause we've already been here
There are trees to remember you by
These trees are cold but they're anticipating
The sun is gonna give the kiss of life

I'll be the sky that lights up with fireworks
Whenever November comes
And you could be the greatest thing that has happened to me
Though I don't know you now

I'm blowing breath on the windowpane
Sketching your name with my finger
I'm blowing breath on the windowpane
Sketching your face with my finger

I'll be the sky that lights up with fireworks
Whenever November comes
And you could be the greatest thing that has happened to me
Though I don't know you now

I'll be the sky that lights up with fireworks
Whenever November comes
And you could be the greatest thing that has happened to me
Though I don't know you now

    This is definitely about missing someone. Either the spark has fizzled out for the other person whilst in a relationship "silence runs along phone lines" but they keep going around in circles and don't resolve anything or they've completely broken up and are continuing their lives without one another - he is obviously struggling with this. He wants to make things better for her, he will excite her and show her amazing things (the firework reference) and be the person she wants him to be because she's dissatisfied/lost interest but he is besotted with her as you can see from the bridge lyrics. He can't get her off his mind. The rejection she bring into their relationship is what keeps him attracted to her - maybe he wants what he can't have and that's what the appeal is - "And then the dark throws me a lifeline" she seems to keep him going with the neglect.
    Such a beautiful song.
