Lyrics
Breathe me
Every time you close your eyes
Taste me
Every time you cry
This memory will fade away and die
Just for today
Breathe me and say goodbye

[Chorus]
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye

See me
In the eyes of another's child
Turn away
When you see me walkin' by
Once in a while
This melody will fade away and die
Just for today
Breathe me and say goodbye

[Chorus]

I don't even want to try
my my,
my my
Cause every word from you is a lie
my my
my my
my my

How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye
