At first I was scared when I opened up my head
And the motor that was running was the mind of you
I was scared when I looked at my reflection
And the shine I saw were the eyes of you

I was scared when you touched my lips
And the breath I took was the breath
That shook me with a shock
Like a flame as eternal as the song
And the song is you

I will let you breathe through me
I will let you be with me

Whenever I'm alone and you're lost out there
I can feel you breathe 'cause our lungs, we share
When I'm alone anytime, anywhere
I can feel your heart beat 'cause our blood, we share

I was scared when you came into my room
The walls became the sea, your voice was the moon
Oh, and when you rocked me in your arms
Like a song, a wave on the tide of you

I will let you breathe through me
I will let you be with me

My heart beats your blood
Your breath fills my lungs
Your heart beats my blood
My breath fills your lungs

And I was scared when you came into the room
The walls became the sea, your voice was the moon
Oh, and you rocked me in your arms
Be with me

I will let you breathe through me
I will let you, I will let you
I will let you, I
