Reason to Believe - Dashboard Confessional

Oh, sweet lungs don't fail me now.
Your burning has turned into fear.
It drills me in my every step,
I'm moving quick but you're always on my heels.

Just one more breath, I beg you please.
Just one more step, my knees are weak.
My heart is sturdy but it needs you to survive.
My heart is sturdy but it needs you.

Breathe, don't you want to breathe?
I know that you are strong enough to handle what I need.
My capillaries scream there's nothing left to feed on.
My body needs a reason to cross that line.
Will you carry me there one more time?

Steady lungs, don't fail me now.
I feel you bursting but you won't let me die.
Fill me up with every step,
I'm feeling sick but I'm leaving it behind.

Just one more breath, I beg you please.
Just one more step, you are not weak.
My legs are sturdy but they need you to survive.
My heart is sturdy but I need you.

Breathe, don't you want to breathe?
I know that you are strong enough to handle what I need.
My capillaries scream there's nothing left to feed on.
My body needs a reason to cross that line.
Will you carry me there once more?
Once more.

I have reason to believe that I have victories to taste.
I can feel them on my teeth, upon my lips, and in my chest.
I can roll them on my tongue.
They are more subtle than defeat.
I feel the tension in my lungs,
And every move is fueled by my resolve to...

Breathe, don't you want to breathe?
I know that you are strong enough to handle what I need.
My capillaries scream there's nothing left to feed on.
My body needs a reason to cross that line.
Would you carry me there one more time?
