Breaking Benjamin – Breath lyrics

I see nothing in your eyes
And the more I see the less I like
Is it over yet?
In my head

I know nothing of your kind
And I won't reveal your evil mind
Is it over yet?
I can't win

So sacrifice yourself
And let me have what's left
I know that I can find
The fire in your eyes
I'm going all the way
Get away please

You take the breath right out of me
You left a hole where my heart should be
You got to fight just to make it through
'Cause I will be the death of you

This will be all over soon
Pour the salt into the open wound
Is it over yet?
Let me in

So sacrifice yourself
And let me have what's left
I know that I can find
The fire in your eyes
I'm going all the way
Get away please

You take the breath right out of me
You left a hole where my heart should be
You got to fight just to make it through
'Cause I will be the death of you

I'm waiting
I'm praying
Realize
Start hating

You take the breath right out of me
You left a hole where my heart should be
You got to fight just to make it through
'Cause I will be the death of you

    This song, I feel, is about an ex in your life. He/she is always surrounding your thoughts and feelings. You look into their eyes, trying to find hope, but there is none. However, even though they have no more feelings for you, you can't get over them. You tell them this, yet they don't care. You want them to so bad, but it will never come. Your willing to do anything, but it won't matter. So, the feelings turn to hate and envy. You don't know what you'll do next.

    This song is about your ex, and no matter how hard you try to tell them you love them and you care about them and you need to be with them it doesn't matter because they could honestly care less about you, and what happens to you. This song reminds me of my ex because I felt that after he left, there is a big hole in my heart that can never be filled, and no matter how hard I try he will never come back and I have no choice but to move on no matter how much it hurts me inside.

    I instantly knew how I connected with this song. Again, it is about an ex, but its not you that's gonna be hurt this time. Instead they will hurt in the end. You tell them lies, such as how much you love them, you can't be without them, that you'll fix all of their problems. Youre with them, and it sucks, you piss them off and everything is awful. In the end your hatred comes out and you s***w them over. You leave them devasted, " 'cause i will be the death of you".

    Lllooove this song! N yea, I think its about a relationship where the love is still there, but there's too much going down, too much ager, pain, that the gulf is too wide for them to bridge. N they can't live with each other, but they can't live without each other too. Heck, who cares what the song means? Its still beautiful! Even if they're saying sumtin inane, I'd still love it!

    I think this is based on a crumbling relationship. The man is searching to find the "fire in her eyes", but instead finds empty nothingness. He realizes slowly that they are breaking, and the more he searches for their past desire, the more the hole in his heart grows. It is obvious that he is still entirely in love with her, and once the realization of the unrequited love sinks in, he wants the hurt to stop, tells her, "Get away please" He's praying, waiting, hurting, and will eventually start hating her.
