Structure + Lyrics

Intro

Verse
faintest snow keeps falling, falling
hands around your waist
nameless, standing cold, standing cold

Chorus

like a breath, like a breath
take in restraint like a breath
my lungs are so numb from holding back

Verse

walk close to the fence
feel it hit your clothes
turn and smile nice
smile say goodnight, say goodnight
in a breath, in a breath
simple discourse breaks you clean,
simple discourse breaks you clean in half

Bridge (8x)

regret
do try it once and then you know
your move
settle for less again

Chorus
like a breath, like a breath
like a breath, like a breath
take in restraint like a breath
my lungs are so numb from holding back

Ending
from holding, back
