Breath Deep
2003 Garrett Clevenger

Em Bm Bm G intro (& verse chord changes)

Em Bm
   All alone and you've lost your breath.
Bm G     The night is dark and it’s cold as death
Em Bm    A distant sound you think you hear.
Bm G     The end result you always fear.
Em Bm    It’s rolling in to hit again.
Bm G     You’ve got no time to wonder when.
Em Bm    A wave that breaks will soon recrest.
Bm G     But before you make your last request.

Em Bm   
Breath deep, my darling.
Bm G     Love won’t kill you.
Em Bm    Breath deep, my darling.
Bm G     Love won’t kill you.

{Em Bm Bm G} x2

Em Bm    A broken heart might hurt real bad.
Bm G     Your body burns as you feel sad.
Em Bm    Memories may make you weep and the
Bm G     night drags on when you can’t sleep.
Em Bm    ”Does it have to feel this way?”
Bm G     You ask out loud as you pray.
Em Bm    The echo of your voice soon dies.
Bm G     The silence thunders its reprise.


Em Bm   
Breath deep, my darling.
Bm G     Love won’t kill you.
Em Bm    Breath deep, my darling.
Bm G     Love won’t kill you.

{Em Bm Bm G} x2

Em C
    There’s nothing worse than to realize
Bm Em
   you’ll never see behind her eyes.
C Bm G
   you’ll never feel her skin beneath her
Em
      clothes.
C Bm
    And all the while she’s sharing what
G Em
    once was just for you
C Bm G
   as you float upon the waves of
F#       blue.
G F#
     Riptides race around you.
A Bm     Salt and sand burn through
G
       as you float upon the waves of
F#
      blue.

Em Bm   
Breath deep, my darling.
Bm G     Love won’t kill you.
Em Bm    Breath deep, my darling.
Bm G     Love won’t kill you.

Em Bm
   Remember when I was telling you
Bm G     about the night I was tossing through.
Em Bm    I felt the wave come crashing down.
Bm G     I held my breath. I thought I’d drown.
Em Bm    I put my hands upon my chest.
Bm G     Like a corpse laid down to rest.
Em Bm    I let go of the weight I held
Bm G     and took a deep breath as I felt
Em Bm    a sense of peace sweep over me.
Bm G     I knew my love would always be.
Em Bm    So when the waves has tossed you round
Bm G     remember, too, what I had found.

Em Bm   
Breath deep, my darling.
Bm G     Love won’t kill you.
Em Bm    Breath deep, my darling.
Bm G     Love won’t kill you.
