lyrics

breathe in and release
open wide, take some peace
there's plenty here despite what you see, no deeper than reality
our eyes can make it hard to see

breathe in, blow it out
begin again, turn around
you've overcome the storms of your past
the summer has arrived at last
put down your sword and see how fast this world comes alive


and we've fought this good fight
for so long day after day
givin all we've got to give
and I know it's all right
fear will not keep me captive,
I don't know the score but I know who wins
so let's love, let's breathe, let's live

barely survived the winter, clinging to summer dreams
of something better, something you'd felt but never seen
in the meantime, the spring and flowers bloomed
outside your fortress, and that's when i met you
mounting your defenses, waiting on perfection
but it ain't gonna be, this life ain't gonna be
but if you come outside, maybe you will find
baby you will see, it don't have to be
perfect to be beautiful
take a look around, listen to the sounds
tear your fortress down
you can still believe, bet you still can dream,
bet you learn to see things you've never seen
i bet you can breathe
better outside, in the sunshine
better untied
better in the light of day

i understand there must be opposition in all things
we must taste the bitter to comprehend the sweet
but I've feasted on oppression, swallowed my aggression
made my healthy share of mistakes, lived to tell the tale
got no plans to quit the race, drivin with a smile on my face
time to pull the top down, let the sun inside
let's enjoy the ride

so breathe in, and release
let it rise, let it sink
to the bottom of your very soul
He loves you more than you'll ever know
He paid an unbelievable toll - that we could
begin again, turn around....

you've overcome the storms of your past
the summer has arrived at last
put down your sword and see how fast this world comes alive

and we've fought this good fight
for so long day after day
givin all we've got to give
and I know it's all right
fear will not keep me captive
I don't know the score but I know who wins
so let's love, let's breathe, let's

fight this good fight
for so long day after day
givin all we've got to give
and I know it's all right
there's one thing i know for sure
life is not just to be endured
there's a time for everything under the sun
and our time has come
so let's love, let's breathe, let's live
