    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 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.

    I feel as if this song means to be free again. Letting go of someone maybe tough, she feels like going back, but she has no choice because if she doesn't let go, she's gonna hurt herself even more and hurt the person she love. She's tired "and my burden to bear is a love i can't carry anymore" but she knows that whatever the guy asks of her, she would do. She loves him too much and he doesn't realize it because she only wanted love from him. In the end, she knows she has to leave.

    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.
