I climb, I slip, I fall
Reaching for your hands
But I lay here all alone
Sweating all your blood

If I could find out how
To make you listen now
Because I'm starving for you here
With my undying love
And I, I will

Breathe for love tomorrow
Cause there's no hope for today
Breathe for love tomorrow
Cause maybe there's another way

I climb, I slip, I fall
Reaching for your hands
But I lay here all alone
Sweating all your blood

If I could find out how
To make you listen now
Because I'm starving for you here
With my undying love
And I, I will

Breathe for love tomorrow
Cause there's no hope for today
Breathe for love tomorrow
Cause maybe there's another way

Breathe for love tomorrow
Cause there's no hope for today
Breathe for love tomorrow
Cause maybe there's another way

I climb, I slip, I fall
Into your empty hands
But I lay here all alone
Sweating all your blood

    The first verse i think means she's losing her significant other, she's reaching out for them but they're moving on. Second verse, she's trying to find a way to make them listen and get them back because she still loves them, and the chorus is she only lives in hope that they will come back but just not today, etc etc.

    I think this song is about a a broken relationship. She needs him, but he isn't there anymore. She needs him in her life and needs him to know that she still loves him. And always will. But she is realising that she has lost him, but doesnt want to believe it.
    She is only breathing for a brighter tomorrow. A tomorrow that has him in it.

    Well thats what i think anyway :) Anyone agree ?x

    I relate so much to this song, it's probably my favorite paramore song. The song is about the desperation and despair you feel when you're in a really dark place and you're trying to get out. It's about that moment when everything is unfixable in your life but there's still a glimmer of hope. The song is not about relationships or a broken heart it's about suicide and depression. The songs chorus says it all very beautifully " breathe for love tomorrow" meaning to not take your life and just wait for tomorrow because maybe things will change. And " maybe there's another way" means maybe there's another way out other than suicide. The first few lines of the song talk about trying to get out of the dark place but failing every time but though your in despair you still have hope and faith in god. " sweating all your blood" refers to the blood jesus shed on the cross for us . The song mostly talks about hope for another day and trying to find another way out.
