lyrics

Are you thinking of leaving just to remedy your pain,
convinced the ache you’re feeling will never go away?
Well, before you pull the trigger, I hope you find that’s not the case
and know that if you go how the world is gonna change.

There’s a reason that you’re breathing, and if only you could see
that life’s a gift you’ve been given with every second you receive.
It isn’t crazy to believe you were made for greater things.
There’s a reason that you’re breathing.

Though some have gone before you feeling just the same,
suffering in silence—but you don’t have to live that way.
Take a step back from the ledge long enough; it’s clear to see
the lens through which you’re looking hides the ground beneath your feet.

There’s a reason that you’re breathing, and if only you could see
that life’s a gift you’ve been given with every second you receive.
It isn’t crazy to believe you were made for greater things.
There’s a reason that you’re breathing.

In the face of all the chaos that might be running through your mind,
I hope there is a moment when you’re strong enough to find

there’s a reason that you’re breathing, and if only you could see
that life’s a gift you’ve been given with every second you receive.
It isn’t crazy to believe you were made for greater things.
There’s a reason that you’re breathing.
There’s a reason that you’re breathing.
