Breathe (2 AM)
2 AM and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake
"Can you help me unravel my latest mistake?
I don't love him, Winter just wasn't my season."

Yeah we walk through the door so accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to criticize
Hypocrites you're all here for the very same reason

'Cause you can't jump the track we're like cars on a cable
And, life's like an hourglass glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button girl
So cradle your head in your hands

And breathe, just breathe
Oh-oh breathe, just breathe

May he turned 21 on the base at Fort Bliss
"Just a day," he said down to the flask in his fist
"Ain't been sober, since maybe October of last year."

Here in town you can tell he's been down for a while
But my God it's so beautiful, when the boy smiles
Wanna hold him, maybe I'll just sing about it

'Cause you can't jump the track we're like cars on a cable
And, life's like an hourglass glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button boys
So cradle your head in your hands

And breathe, just breathe
Oh, breathe, just breathe

"There's a light at each end of this tunnel!" you shout
'Cause you're just as far in as you'll ever be out
And these mistakes you've made you'll just make them again
If you only try turning around

2 AM and I'm still awake writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, it's no longer
Inside of me, threatenin' the life it belongs to

And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
'Cause these words are my diary, screamin' out loud
And I know that you'll use them, however you want to

But you can't jump the track we're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button now
Sing it if you understand

And breathe, just breathe
Oh, breathe, just breathe

Oh breathe, just breathe
Oh breathe, just breathe
