lyrics

Breath I Breathe

Your air fills my lungs
wind in me, you let me breathe
seeds scattering wide, your children
will grow ‘cross the valleys
I’m bowing to thee

Your body lays all around me
may I walk gently upon your limbs
oh body, you’re not here for me to use
my life you’ve given, and I choose to see
with each breath I breathe

Rivering veins within me
will your coursing go freely
will you rain down my grief
oh may you run so easy
wild and clear, pure and deep

My body lays all around me
may I be beauty, my life your limb
oh body, please let your song come through
this little voice sings for you
I’m listening
with each breath I breathe

Oh - I’m gonna let myself be changed like a season
oh - and I’m stronger when I break to the song of your heart
my love - can I lay down these blindings?
become the sound of all you seek

Your body lays all around me
may I walk gently upon your limbs
oh body, you’re not here for me to use
my life you’ve given, and I choose to see
with each breath I breathe

My body lays all around me
may I be beauty, my life your limb
oh body, please let your song come through
this little voice sings for you
I’m listening
with each breath I breathe

may I walk gently upon your limbs
with each breath I breathe

--
there are ones who'll keep us sleeping
and there are ones who'll bring the dawn...
