He's standing alone with his gun in his hand
Wondering why he's the man with the gun in his hand
Brother of mine please don't take this choice
Drop the gun and follow my voice

Refrain:
Ooh oh oh ooh
Ooh oh oh ooh

Is it just enough for you to breathe?
I'm begging
Is it not enough to just have me?
Whoa

He's standing alone with the gun in his hand
Why am I the man, why am I the man?
Brother of mine take this away
I'm sick of this life of pain

Refrain

Is it just enough for you to breathe?
I'm begging
Is it not enough to just have me?
Whoa
Is it just enough for you to be?
I'm trying
To be the person that you need
Please don't pull the

He's dead on the floor with his gun in his hand
Why was he the man, why was he the man?

Is it just enough for you to breathe?
I'm begging
Is it not enough to be just me
Whoa

Is it just enough for you to breathe?
I'm begging
Is it not enough to just have me?
Whoa
Is it just enough for you to be?
I'm trying
And where I go you will follow

    This song is about a man or boy trying to tell his brother how much he loves him and how much he means in an effort to coax him out of killing himself and failing.

    I like it to hear christofer's sweet "never shout never voice" when he sings the part of 'is it just enough for you to breath'. I think it makes this song a little bit magical and different... :)

    It mainly means that he doesn't want his close mate to commit and to try to find the good in life.

    This song is about how u have the difficult choice to lose your life or live any longer. When he haves the gun i his hand he probably wondering why me and why must i be in this situation. I love this song and i think it gives out a good message to people about other and pain that they go through just by one choice. Every time i listen to this song it takes me back to what i've been through and makes me happy to still be here :)
