Just Breathe

The first time I came across this song, I played it over and over and over.



It's a lot to read, but I'm posting the lyrics anyway. Click here for the YouTube video.

Just Breathe by Pearl Jam
Yes I understand that every life must end, aw huh,.. 
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, aw huh,.. 
I’m a lucky man to count on both hands 
The ones I love,.. 

Some folks just have one, 
Others they got none, aw huh,.. 

Stay with me,.. 
Let’s just breathe. 

Practiced are my sins, 
Never gonna let me win, aw huh,.. 
Under everything, just another human being, aw huh,.. 
Yeh, 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 now 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, aw huh,.. 
Everything you gave 
And nothing you would take, aw huh,.. 
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 now I’m a fool you see,.. 
No one know this more than me. 
As I come clean. 

Nothing you would take,.. 
everything you gave. 
Hold me till I die,.. 
Meet you on the other side.

Someone that I love said it best, "things work better when I'm transparent."  I'm working hard to come clean about EVERYTHING.  With myself, with my family, with me friends, in my prayers.  Everything.  


This song made me realize that I really don't understand a lot about what happens during this life, but I'm glad that this isn't it.  My story doesn't end here.  One day, I'll be standing in God's presence.  That is the end of my story.  Joy and peace.
