Lifehouse – Breathing lyrics

I'm finding my way back to sanity again,
Though I don't really know what I'm going to do when I get there.
Take a breath and hold on tight,
Spin around one more time,
And gracefully fall back to the arms of Grace.

'Cause I am hanging on every word you say and,
Even if you don't want to speak tonight that's alright,
Alright with me.
'Cause I want nothing more than to sit outside Heaven's door and listen to you breathing,
Is where I want to be.
Yeah.
Where I want to be.

I'm looking past the shadows in my mind into the truth and I'm,
Trying to identify the voices in my head.
God which one's you?
Let me feel one more time what it feels like to feel alive,
And break these calluses off of me,
One more time.

'Cause I am hanging on every word you say and,
Even if you don't want to speak tonight that's alright,
Alright with me.
'Cause I want nothing more than to sit outside your door and listen to you breathing,
Is where I want to be.
Yeah.

I don't want a thing from you.
Bet you're tired of me waiting for the scraps to fall off your table to the ground.

'Cause I just want to be here now.

'Cause I am hanging on every word you say and,
Even if you don't want to speak tonight that's alright,
Alright with me.
'Cause I want nothing more than to sit outside Heaven's door and listen to you breathing,
Is where I want to be.
Yeah.

'Cause I am hanging on every word you say and,
Even if you don't want to speak tonight that's alright,
Alright with me.
'Cause I want nothing more than to sit outside Heaven's door and listen to you breathing,
Is where I want to be.
Yeah.
Where I want to be.
Where I want to be....

    I think he is talking to God. I think he is saying his life here is not easy, and he is trying to stay on the right path, yet it is so hard.
    "I'm looking past the shadows in my mind into the truth and I'm,.
    Trying to identify the voices in my head.
    God which one's you? (Its not always easy to know what the right thing to do is. You can be pursuaded, if you believe that, by God or the devil.)
    "Even if you don't want to speak tonight, thats alright, alright with me." He is saying even if God can't answer his prayers tonight, he will eventually, and he is heard.
    But I don't know, it could be the slave bf too. I know I've had a relationship or two that felt that way lol.

    I actually think that this is in god's pov. He's the one who's waiting for us to talk to him and he's outside heaven's door because he wants to be closer to us (leaving heaven - coming here as jesus christ) just to listen to us "breathe" or live. Also when he is here in earth he's just as confused as where his father is, abandoning him during the times that he's in the cross. But still he wants to be with us.
