'Am I Breathing​?​'

lyrics

For the first time in my life
Am I breathing?
Well, there’s never been a time that I
Was not bleeding
For the first time in my life
Am I breathing?
‘Cause the acid in my mind
Has stopped seething
And, instead of that sense of impending doom inside,
I feel that there could be a future in my sight
For the first time in my life
Am I breathing?

I don’t think that I’m depressed -
Am I breathing?
Well, my life is in a mess -
But I’m leading
I don’t think that I’m depressed -
Am I breathing?
Somehow I’m regaining so much sense;
So much feeling
And finally, when I felt all I had was spent -
Suddenly, I am in skin that was meant!
I don’t think that I’m depressed -
Am I breathing?

Oh, far be it from me to try to rattle your cage
The sadness in your eyes fills all that I am with shame
It’s not been my intention to force you to turn a page
The guilt I feel inside slices my soul every way
I’d got to where ‘I’ was a concept that I could not sustain
And something came over me that I could not contain
A tender girlish hand took mine when I couldn’t live with the pain

I couldn’t live with the pain

I can only be me when I’ve got what she’s got
I’ll only be happy when I’ve got what she wants

Am I breathing?
