Just Breathe


I watched Cameron Crowe's documentary, Pearl Jam Twenty, last night and really enjoyed it. I think you'd have to be a fan already to really get the most out of it, but maybe not. The end credits rolled to Just Breathe, which I think may be the most beautiful love song of all-time.

Just Breathe

Yes, I understand that every life must end, uh-huh
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, uh-huh
Oh I'm a lucky man, to count on both hands the ones I love
Some folks just have one, yeah, others, they've got none

Stay with me...
Let's just breathe...

Practiced all my sins, never gonna let me win, uh-huh
Under everything, just another human being, uh-huh
I don't wanna hurt, there's so much in this world to make me bleed

Stay with me
You're all I see...

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see
No one knows this more than me

As I come clean...
I wonder everyday, as I look upon your face, uh-huh
Everything you gave
And nothing you would save, oh no

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave...

Did I say that I need you?
Oh, did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
And I come clean, ah...

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
Hold me til I die
Meet you on the other side...

Wow.

This is the kind of song that I would think would open people up to love... because though you are taking a chance, the consequences of not taking a shot at love are dire and make life long and lonely...
