Oxygen

You might know this one when I debuted it on NBC Philadelphia’s 10! Show, or if you were a regular at the Nutley Pub last summer.

This song is basically about not waiting around for someone who isn’t worth waiting around for. You know the expression “Don’t hold your breath”, meaning don’t expect anything to come out of said situation? Well the lyric “If I held my breath for you, I’d be dead by now, and I so love being alive…” , is just saying that you realize nothing is ever going to come out of waiting around for someone who just doesn’t care to show you the same feelings/actions as you are putting towards them. It’s not worth it, life’s too short…MOVE ON!! Here are the lyrics:

If I held my breath for you
Then I’d be dead by now
And I so love being alive
And I so love being alive
Woah Woah

Swimming in the deep blue nothingness
Of uncertainty
I keep this to myself, I tell nobody else
It seems a thousand days you left me
Floating with no destiny
But the air is running out
The air is running out

I clear my lungs
This could be the last time
But then I stop and I think to myself

Chorus:
If I held my breath for you
Then I’d be dead by now
And I so love being alive
And I so love being alive
Woah
If I held my breath for you
Then I’d be dead by now
And I so love being alive
And I so love being alive
Woah Woah

Did you always have this much control
I could be sinking by the minute
But this could be the last time
(This could be the last time!)
My oxygen is hostage and held to my captive heart
It doesn’t even beat for me
So I’m cutting my own line
I’m cutting my own line

I clear my lungs
This could be the last time
But then I stop and I think to myself

If I held my breath for you
Then I’d be dead by now
And I so love being alive
And I so love being alive
Woah
If I held my breath for you
Then I’d be dead by now
And I so love being alive
And I so love being alive
Woah Woah
Woah Woah

I clear my lungs
This could be the last time
But then I stop and I think to myself

Chorus Repeat 2x
If I held my breath for you
Then I’d be dead by now
And I so love being alive
And I so love being alive
Whoa
If I held my breath for you
I’d die a thousand times
And I so love being alive
And I so love being alive
Whoa
