I walked across a crowded street.
A sea of eyes, they cut through me.
And I saw you in the middle.
Your upset face, you wear it well.
You camouflage the way you feel,
when everything's the matter.
We've all been down that road before,
searching for that something more.

Worlds are spinning 'round.
There's no sign of slowing down.
So won't you take a breath?
Just take a breath.
People change and promises are broken.
Clouds can move and skies will be wide open.
Don't forget to take a breath.

Blink our eyes, life's rearranged.
To our surprise, it's still okay.
It's the way things happen.
Summer comes and then it goes.
Hold on tight, and brace for cold.
And it's only for a moment.
We've all been down that road before.
Searching for that something more.

Worlds are spinning 'round.
There's no sign of slowing down.
So won't you take a breath?
Just take a breath.
People change and promises are broken.
Clouds can move and skies will be wide open.
Don't forget to take a breath.

Life isn't suffocating.
Air isn't overrated.

Worlds are spinning 'round.
There's no sign of slowing down.
So won't you take a breath?
Just take a breath.

Worlds are spinning 'round.
There's no sign of slowing down.
So won't you take a breath?
Just take a breath.
Take a breath.
People change and promises are broken.
Clouds can move and skies will be wide open.
Don't forget to take a breath.

Worlds are spinning 'round.
There's no sign of slowing down.
So won't you take a breath?
Just take a breath.
Don't forget to take a breath.
(Don't forget to take a breath.)
