She breathed a song into the air.
She breathed a song into the air,
Left her only heart in my care
Don’t know how I had let it slip
But that is where our ship did sink.
It wasn’t one of those rainy days,
The sun was hot, the sky ablaze
And I couldn’t bear to meet her eye,
In that month all had gone awry.
Sorry that I suddenly left,
I had thought we had nothing left.
I was overwhelmed and really scared
Then went so numb I couldn’t have cared.
I hated what I loved the most
and closed myself to hurt no more.
Today I can write you this song,
Is proof that I have come along.
It still pains as it pained back then,
I still cry like I cried back then
But slowly I’ve been moving on,
Whatever happened is long gone.
You breathed a song into the air,
Our hearts are in each other’s care,
Nevermore will we let them slip,
This ship of ours we won’t let sink.
