barely breathing lyrics – duncan sheik

“barely breathing”

i know what you’re doing
i see it all too clear
i only taste the saline
when i kiss away your tears

you really had me going
wishing on a star
the black holes that surround you
are heavier by far

i believed in your confusion
so completely torn
must have been that yesterday
was the day that i was born

there’s not much to examine
there’s nothing left to hide
you really can’t be serious
if you have to ask me why
i say goodbye

’cause i am barely breathing
and i can’t find the air
don’t know who i’m kidding
imagining you care

and i could stand here waiting
a fool for another day
i don’t suppose it’s worth the price
it’s worth the price, the price
that i would pay, yeah yeah, yeah

everyone keeps asking
what’s it all about?
i used to be so certain
now i can’t figure out

what is this attraction?
i only feel the pain
there’s nothing left to reason
and only you to blame
will it ever change?

’cause i am barely breathing
and i can’t find the air
don’t know who i’m kidding
imagining you care

and i could stand here waiting
a fool for another day
i don’t suppose it’s worth the price
it’s worth the price, the price
that i would pay, yeah yeah, yeah
but i’m thinking it over anyway
i’m thinking it over anyway

i’ve 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 don’t come and go

’cause i am barely breathing
and i can’t find the air
don’t know who i’m kidding
imagining you care

and i could stand here waiting
a fool for another day
but i don’t suppose it’s worth the price
it’s worth the price, the price
that i would pay, yeah yeah, yeah
but i’m thinking it over anyway
i’m thinking it over anyway

well, i know what you’re doing
i see it all too clear
