Taylor Swift – Breathe lyrics

I see your face in my mind as I drive away
'Cause none of us thought it was gonna end that way
People are people
And sometimes we change our minds

But it's killing me to see you go after all this time

Mmm mmm mmmmmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Music starts playing like the end of a sad movie
It's the kind of ending you don't really want to see
'Cause it's tragedy and it'll only bring you down
Now I don't know what to be without you around

And we know it's never simple, never easy
Never a clean break, no one here to save me
You're the only thing I know like the back of my hand
And I can't breathe without you, but I have to
Breathe without you, but I have to

Never wanted this, never want to see you hurt
Every little bump in the road I tried to swerve
People are people and sometimes it doesn't work out
Nothing we say is gonna save us from the fall out

And we know it's never simple, never easy
Never a clean break, no one here to save me
You're the only thing I know like the back of my hand
And I can't breathe without you, but I have to
Breathe without you, but I have to

It's 2AM
Feel like I just lost a friend
Hope you know it's not easy, easy for me
It's 2AM
Feel like I just lost a friend
Hope you know this ain't easy, easy for me

And we know it's never simple, never easy
Never a clean break, no one here to save me
Oh
I can't breathe without you, but I have to
Breathe without you, but I have to
Breathe without you, but I have to

Ohh
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry...

    Its happening to me. T_t tsk2
    I really don't know what to feel, what to do, what to say,; I really don't know. So hard to let go but it is the way it should be. If destiny tells that you two are really together means you are, I hope were together. Coz shes my inspiration, my life, and my everything,. I don't know what to think, regret? No! Coz I had a lot of happy treasureful times wid her. And I have the job to bring happiness to her, I mean a very big opportunity to love her forever. When I read this song, it teaches me how to sing. I love this song very much. Just as how I love her.

    I think the meaning to this song is that she had to break up with her boyfriend as they no longer could be together, of course she still loves him as they had been together for a long time this is shown by the line of "you're the only thing i know like the back of my hand". But they had to break up as there's nothing left in common between them. It hurted her so much but she had to say gudbye to him or they'll hurt each other much more. It's a sad song. But I like it very much.

    Its not easy to let a friend go. I had an arguemnt with my friend some months ago and I was listening to this song for like the whole day. I felt like I should not end it here like this. So, I requested my friend to forget what happened. I could not end my friendship of 12 years like that. Taylor's song told me that no matter what happens, never leave a friend.

    I definately agree its a relationship break up song. I feel that way too. I really feel like I lost a friend too. I had to break up with my boyfriend, my parents made me, now I wanted to be friends but now he doesn't talk to me hardly at all anymore. It really hurts me bc I couldn't do anything about it and it seems like the way he sees things is taht I am either going out with you or I am totally leaving you. He's really not worth my time for that reason but I can't seem to ever get him out of my mind. I try and try. Its been about a month but I still care for him and think about him every day. It hurts when he doesn't show friendship back to me. But yea like I said I don't think he is worth it.
    I absolutely love taylor swift songs. They are so real to about every girl in this world. I love how she takes life experiences like these and makes them to such touching songs like this one!
