Breathe me
Everytime you close your eyes
Taste me
Every time you cry
This memory will fade away and die
Just for today
Breathe me and say goodbye

[Chorus]
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye

See me
In the eyes of mother's child
Turn away
When you see me walkin' by
Once in a while
This melody will fade away and die
Just for today
Breathe me and say goodbye

[Chorus]
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye

I don't even want to try

[Chorus]
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye

    Respírame,
    cada vez que cierres tus ojos. Pruébame,
    cada vez que llores. Éste recuerdo se desvanecerá y morirá. Solo por hoy,
    respírame y di adiós.

    ¿cuántas veces? ¿cuántas veces? Ahora puedo verte a los ojos,
    ahora puedo verte a los ojos. ¿cuántas veces? ¿cuántas veces? Ahora puedo verte a los ojos.

    Mírame,
    en los ojos de un niño de mamá. Rechaza,
    cuando me veas caminando. De vez en cuando,
    ésta melodía desaparecerá y morirá. Solo por hoy,
    respírame y di adiós.

    I lived in denmark for 3 years, there i met someone very special. For different reasons our "relationship" never worked out. He was always into other girls, so was i with other boys. Finally 4 months after i was leaving we realised we loved each other. But i said i couldn't be with him 'coz i didn't want to miss him back in my country. He sent me this song when i came back from denmark. Now it's been 3 years since then... I still miss him

    Being ashamed of being addicted to drugs. Also they're missing the line "'cause every word from you is a lie" here, which is crucial to understanding the song meaning (self deception).

    I'm going to miss anokhi. More than she'll ever know and she'll probably never read this but there is so much i have to tell you. So much. But there is too much to ruin.
