Harness your heart and be still now
Quiet that mind that will wander
All sorts of dark alley
Tragedy strikes your self esteem
Constantly waiting for an ending
To all of this

She opens her eyes
Suddenly she cries
Can we help her?
Can we help her?
And she replies

You know I fake it oh so well
That God himself can't tell
What I mean and why my words are less then parallel
With my feet you ask me what I need
And all I really need is to breathe
Ooh ooh

People they seem so interested
Only if you get invested
With all the aches and pains
Doctor oh doctor please help her
I fear she may not be breathing
Blue lips and dull eyes
That's her disguise

You know I fake it oh so well
That God himself can't tell
What I mean and why my words are less then parallel
With my feet you ask me what I need
And all I really need is to breathe
(Ahhhh ahhhhhhh ahhhhh ahhh ahhh)

Give some space to breathe
I need a little room to breathe
Give me some space to breathe
All I need is a little room to breathe
(Oooooo oo oo oo oooo oooo)
I fake it oh so well
That God can't tell

You know I fake it oh so well
That God himself can't tell
What I mean and why my words are less then parallel
With my feet you ask me what I need
And all I really need

Is to breathe...
Let me breathe

    Its about someone who goes through their life everyday faking smiles and everything. And all they want is someone to say that they can help her/him

    I think this is about someone who liked to deal with their problems on their own. Others may see her facade, but when they ask how to help, she just says she needs to do it on her own. She needs room to breathe, be alone, and figure it out.

    Hmh.. It could be about a disease, like anorexia nervosa for example. The girl couldn't keep it as a secret, and now everyone tries to take care of her, but she wants nothing more than some space for herself (you ask me what I need, and all i really need is to breathe.)
