Oh, this road is long, this road is wide
It takes more than luck to last the ride
It takes strength and it takes courage to survive

And did someone ever say to you
There's nothing bound in thought you cannot do
Well, I've seen some things but not all of them came true

So I don't wanna be the last, don't wanna be the first
Don't wanna be alone with my thoughts tomorrow
Don't wanna be afraid, don't wanna look away
I'm learning to breathe

Don't wanna be the last, don't wanna be the first
I just need a hope and a light to follow
Like sailors look to stars to find their way home
I'm learning to breathe on my own

And I know a man who lost his wife
This is the way he chooses to describe his life
He says, "If I think too much, I'd find there's just a hole"

But before she went, she left a son
He says, "Dad, you're not the only one
Maybe love is just a requiem for the soul"

So I don't wanna be the last, don't wanna be the first
Don't wanna be alone with my thoughts tomorrow
Don't wanna be afraid, don't wanna look away
I'm learning to breathe

Don't wanna be the last, don't wanna be the first
I just need a hope and a light to follow
Like sailors look to stars to find their way home
I'm learning to breathe on my own

Do you still feel small?
Just a speck of life on an ocean wave
Does it pull us all?
Does it pull us all?

So, I don't wanna be the last, don't wanna be the first
Don't wanna be alone with my thoughts tomorrow
Don't wanna be afraid, don't wanna look away
I'm learning to breathe

Don't wanna be the last, don't wanna be the first
I just need a hope and a light to follow
Like sailors look to stars to find their way home
I'm learning to breathe on my own
I'm learning to breathe on my own
I'm learning to breathe on my own
