Sleeping at Last – Breathe Deep Lyrics

Breathe Deep Lyrics – Sleeping at Last

Once in a while
I see myself
No longer enchanted
By the future or the past
I break the spell

Once in a while
It’s crystal clear
The shadows, the light
Even my scars, overnight
They disappear

If every breath is sacred
God, I want to breathe
Deep enough to feel something
Deep enough to believe

Once in a while
It all sinks in
I try to keep my head
Above the water
God knows, but I can’t swim

Once in a while
I put up a fight
I write another song
And sing it with all of my might
Renegotiate the terms
Of this terminal life
I’ll put up a fight

If every breath is sacred
God, I want to breathe
Deep enough to feel something
Deep enough to believe
That every breath is sacred
God, I want to breathe
Deep enough to feel something
Deep enough to believe

Please show me how to breathe deep
Please show me how to breathe deep

If every breath is sacred
God, I want to breathe
Deep enough to feel something
Deep enough to believe
