Breath of Poison,Breath of Air


Breath of Poison, Breath of Air

Breathing in fresh air
For the first time in years
The taste is so sweet
Compared to my tears

Guilt has left me be
It’s time to move on
Too long have I paid
When I did nothing wrong

I forgive you
I forgive me
Today I live
Today I see

Shedding off the past
Owning up to whats been done
Saying goodbye to childish self pity
Realizing I am the one

That holds me back
That made this poison
Living endless doubt
Created my own treason

I forgive you
I forgive me
Today I live
Today I see

You may have struck the first blow
Abused me worse than I’ve known
Took my air, Took my care
Leaving the damage to be shown

But it was I
Who trapped myself in with the mess
Breathed in its poison
Never letting go of the stress

I forgive you
I forgive me
Today I live
Today I breathe
