lyrics

Don't hold your breath
Because every word deserves its time
I know I'm just a wicked man
But I'm wiser at this point in life

There's nothing better
Than the feeling of the air that surrounds your body
And watching everything move in slow motion
(Only to savor your words)
There's nothing better
Than the feeling of the warmth that will form your magic
And making the world change
(However you want to)

So, don't hold your breath
Because every man deserves his time
I speak from experience
And I hope you will find the right melodies

I hope you find a way to use your voice to set your heart ablaze
And use the echoes as a sign for when the world is too dark to see

An aging man would see
That there's no recourse for the blood that was taken from those innocent bodies
And I could never begin to explain how wrong it feels to steal the song of your kin

There's nothing better
Than the feeling of the air that surrounds your body
And watching everything move in slow motion
(Only to savor your words)
There's nothing better
Than the feeling of the warmth that will form your magic
And making the world change
(However you want to)

So, don't hold your breath
Because every voice deserves its time
You'll feel in your heart when the song is right
So, don't hold your breath
Oh Baby Boy, I see myself in your eyes
You will feel in your heart
