I will try not to breathe
These eyes are the eyes of the old, shiver and fold
I will try not to breathe
I have lived a full life

I need something to breathe
I will try not to burden you
I will hold my breath
Just look in my eyes
I will try not to worry you
Leave it to memory me

I need something to fly (something to fly)
I need something to breathe (something to breathe)
Why do you shiver? (I will see things you will never see)
Over my grave again. (I will see things you will never see)
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

I have seen things that you will never see
Don't dare me to breathe
I need something to fly (something to fly)
I need something to breathe (something to breathe)
Why do you shiver now? (I will see things you will never see)
(I have seen things you will never see)
