Car is parked, bags are packed, but what kind of heart doesn't look back
At the comfortable glow from the porch, the one I will still call yours?
All those words came undone and now I'm not the only one
Facing the ghosts that decide if the fire inside still burns

All I have, all I need, he's the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I'm searching for something
Out of breath, I am left hoping someday I'll breathe again
I'll breathe again

Open up next to you and my secrets become your truth
And the distance between that was sheltering me comes in full view
Hang my head, break my heart built from all I have torn apart
And my burden to bear is a love I can't carry anymore

All I have, all I need, he's the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I'm searching for something

Out of breath, I am left hoping someday I'll breathe again

It hurts to be here
I only wanted love from you
It hurts to be here
What am I gonna do?

All I have, all I need, he's the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I'm searching
All I have, all I need, he's the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I'm searching for something
Out of breath, I am left hoping someday I'll breathe again
I'll breathe again
I'll breathe again
I'll breathe again
I'll breathe again
I'll breathe again...

    Love; a bittersweet emotion that has the ability to create a world full of hope and happiness as well as completely devestate someone's life. This songs deals with the emptiness that envelops a person when suddenly apart of you has been torn away. Your left struggling, unable to cope with the pain and sorrow, and although it kills you, it is imperative that you endeavour to move on in life. I think people often misunderstand this song, yes it deals with heartbreak, yes it highlights this pain extremely well but I believe it also aspires to evoke a little bit of hope. Hope that this isn't it, that you are able to regain control over your life and move on. The hope that although we may suffer this unendurable heartbreak again and again; eventually, someday, that certain someone will waltz into your life and you will forget any sorrow you used to associate with love. And you'll finally be able to "breathe again. "

    Breathe again is a song about love, it's saying that no matter how much you may love someone, it's okay to let go, to move on, you don't have to be the same person you we're then. As we learn, we grow. It's hard to let go, to forget, but we don't create memories to let them go, we create them to cherish them. This song is about being broken, but some day all of that will change, you won't hurt anymore, you'll be free. You'll "breathe again".

    She is talking about when it is time to finally walk away from a relationship that is not working. Doesn't matter how much one loves the other person, if that person hurts you and all you have are feelings and you love this person so much but you can't be with them, also for her it is the fact it was most probibly a deep, strong and long relationship that was intense and she loved this person very much but have to move on regardless - she can't be with him.

    She and her boyfriend/husband had a fight, and she's packed her bags and is leaving him- at least temporarily. She doesn't know if the words they exchanged can be forgiven.
    She loves him so much that being apart steals her breath away, but she goes anyway. Their love is a "burden [she] can't carry anymore". Love wasn't enough to keep them together. Now, she just hopes that one day she'll move on enough to catch her breath.

    They are taking so time apart frm each other to sort out some issues they might be having about how they feel about each other. For her he is her everything n not having him it is as if she cannot breathe so she needs to be with him n wants to be with him so she can breathe again or feel his love again. She continues to hope that one day they'll be able to be together again to breathe again.
