George Strait – Breath You Take lyrics
[Verse:]

He looks up, from second base, and dads up in the stands
He saw the hit, the run, the slide, there ain't no bigger fan
In the parkin lot, after the game, he said dad I thought you had a plane to catch
He smiles and says yeah son I did

[Chorus:]

But lifes not the breath you take, the breathing in and out
That gets you through the day, ain't what it's all about
You just might miss the point, tryin to win the race
Lifes not the breath you take, but the moments
That take your breath away.

[Verse 2:]

Fast forward fifteen years, and a thousand miles away
Boys built a life, he's got a wife, and a baby due today
He hears a voice sayin I made it son, says I told you dad you didn't have to come
He smiles and says yeah, I know ya did

[Chorus:]

But lifes not the breath you take, the breathin in and out
That gets you through the day, ain't what it's all about
You just might miss the point, tryin to win the race
Lifes not the breath you take
But the moments that take your breath away

[Bridge:]

Just like it took my breath when she was born
Just like it took my breath away
When dad took his last that morn

[Chorus:]

Lifes not the breaths you take, the breathin in and out
That gets you through the day, ain't what it's all about
You just might miss the point, if you don't slow down the pace
Lifes not the breath you take
But the moments that take your breath away.
