I had my heart set on making it with you.
Strange how the wind seemed to turn.
But love is the teacher, it tells you what to do.
So I'll face tomorrow and I'll see it through.

I'm alright,
It only hurts when I breathe.
And I'll survive
As long as I can believe,
Someone who needs love like mine
Is leavin' someone too.
Maybe if the time is right
It'll turn out to be you.

I took my chances without a guarantee.
Gave you the best of my love.
But time is the healer, at least that's what they say.
The part of the strong one gets harder to play.

But I'm alright,
It only hurts when I breathe.
I'll survive
As long as I can believe,
That someone who needs love like mine
Is leavin' someone too.
Maybe it'll turn out to be you.

I'm alright,
It only hurts when I breathe.
I've done everything,
No more cards up my sleeve.

I'm alright,
It only hurts when I breathe.
I'm alright,
It only hurts when I breathe.
I'm alright,
It only hurts when I breathe... (fade)
