barely breathing 
lyrics and music by duncan sheik

I know what youíre doing, I see it all to clear
I only taste the saline when I kiss away your tears
You really had me going, wishing on a star
But the black holes that surround you are heavier by far
I believed in your confusion, you were so completely torn
Well it must have been that yesterday was the day that I was born
Thereís not much to examine, thereís nothing left to hide
You really canít be serious if you have to ask me why

I say good-bye...

ĎCause I am barely breathing
And I canít find the air
I donít know who Iím kidding
Imagining you care
And I could stand here waiting
A fool for another day
But I donít suppose itís worth the price, worth the price
The price that I would pay

Everyone keeps asking, whatís it all about?
I used to be so certain and I canít figure out
What is this attraction? I only feel the pain
Thereís nothing left to reason and only you to blame Will it ever change?


ĎCause I am barely breathing
And I canít find the air
I donít know who Iím kidding
Imagining you care
And I could stand here waiting
A fool for another day
But I donít suppose itís worth the price, worth the price
The price that I would pay
But Iím thinking it over anyway...


Iíve come to find
I may never know
Your changing mind
Is it friend or foe?

I rise above
Or sink below
With every time
You come and go
Please donít come and go

ĎCause I am barely breathing
And I canít find the air
I donít know who Iím kidding
Imagining you care
And I could stand here waiting
A fool for another day
But I donít suppose itís worth the price, worth the price
The price that I would pay
But Iím thinking it over anyway...
