Learning to Breathe Again


Words by Mark L Berry & TC Elliot and Music by TC Elliot
Performed by TC Elliot

TC Elliott I sit and look at your white-gold engagement ring
My heart breaks as I sit and stare at this thing
She only wore it for two months and four days
This ring and I live just like two castaways

I’m just trying to learn to breathe again
Trying to live another day
I’m just trying to learn to breathe again
As I try to find my way
I’m just trying to learn to live again
Trying to end this slow decay
And I’m just trying to learn to breathe again
To get this pain to fade away

I saw a doc to resolve all of my outbursts
He made me count from 100 by 7’s in reverse
He knew I needed help to learn to grieve
So he said he would teach me how to breathe

I’m just trying to learn to breathe again
Trying to live another day
I’m just trying to learn to breathe again
As I try to find my way
I’m just trying to learn to live again
Trying to end this slow decay
I’m just trying to learn to breathe again
To get this pain to fade away

No words
Can explain this pain
Nothing will ever feel the same

I’m just trying to learn to breathe again
Trying to live another day
I’m just trying to learn to breathe again
As I try to find my way
And I’m just trying to learn to live again
Trying to end this slow decay
I’m just trying to learn to breathe again
To get this pain to fade away
