Just Breathe Lyrics

Yes, I understand that every life must end, aw-huh,..
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, aw-huh,..
Oh I'm a lucky man, to count on both hands
the ones I love,..

Some folks just have one,
yeah, others, they've got none, huh-uh

Stay with me,..
Let's just breathe.

Practiced are my sins,
never gonna let me win, aw-huh,..
Under everything, just another human being, aw-huh,..
Yeh, I don't wanna hurt, there's so much in this world
to make me bleed.

Stay with me,..
You're all I see.

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see,..
No one knows this more than me.
As I come clean.

I wonder everyday
as I look upon your face, aw-huh,..
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take, aw huh,..
Nothing you would take
Everything you gave...

Did I say that I need you?
Oh, did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see,..
No one knows this more than me.
As I come clean, ah-ah...

Nothing you would take,..
Everything you gave.
Hold me till I die,..
Meet you on the other side.

My son took his life on his birthday in Dec. These are the words I feel he would have spoken before he left this world. It gives me comfort to hear them in this beautiful song.

As a musician, I like much (not all) Pearl Jam. As an acoustic guitarist, I DO like and try to learn most of those numbers. As a human being, I wept as my girlfirend and I watched it 5 times in a row

I LOVE Pearl Jam...favorite band since '91. This new album shows their diversity. Sorry to say, the lyrics on this site are not correct but still get the jist. Ed, Matt, Mike, Stone, rock!

This is such a lovely and touching song. It so applies to the recent tragedy in Haiti. I believe it should even become sort of an anthem for any relief efforts done for Haiti.

These words touched me. Every one of their songs have touched me in so many ways. I love this song, every time I listen to it, I cry. Eddie, your amazing. Keep up your hard work. Pearl Jam is my fave!

I was diagnosed with cancer on July 14th. I am truly blessed to be able to love and be loved by many. Pearl Jam states it so well in this song. Yes, the tears fall when I listen to the words.

Just lost my brother to cancer, when I heard this song I couldn't stop crying. Will definitely buy this album just for this song.
