• Mat Kearney - Air I Breathe Lyrics

    From the album Just Kids (Deluxe Edition)

    Born and raised under the rain and a Western Wind
    Felt the weight trying to live up to they say I am.
    Is it any wonder Shame comes calling my first name
    Is there any question if I'm the one here left to blame

    It's the same fight all over again
    It's the same bite breaking in my skin
    It's the same light when you let me in
    You let me in you let me in.

    You are the air I breathe
    You are the song I bleed
    You are the war that I can't win
    This is my white flag in the wind
    Every word you speak
    Is the air I breathe.

    I feel like a contender
    Bringing my fist to pistol war
    I surrender that I need you now and you've loved me more
    It's like an ocean over my head and I'm under the light
    In slow motion tonight

    It's the same fight all over again
    It's the same bite breaking in my skin
    It's the same light when you let me in
    You let me in you let me in.

    You are the air I breathe
    You are the song I bleed
    You are the war that I can't win
    This is my white flag in the wind
    Every word you speak
    Is the air I breathe.

    I hear you calling my name out name out
    Is there any other way now
    I hear you calling my name out name out
    I got nothing left to say now say now

    You are the air I breathe
    You are the song I bleed
    You are the war that I can't win
    This is my white flag in the wind
    Every word you speak
    Is the air I breathe.
