Try Not To Breathe Lyrics

by REM

I will try not to breathe
I can hold my head still with my hands at my knees
These eyes are the eyes of the old, shiver and fold

I will try not to breathe
This decision is mine, I have lived a full life
These are the eyes that

I want you to remember, ohh
I need something to fly over my grave again
I need something to breathe

I will try not to burden you
I can hold these inside, I will hold my breath
Untill all these shivers subside, just look in my eyes

I will try not to worry you
I have seen things that you will never see
Leave it to memory me, I shudder to breathe

I want you to remember, ohh
I need something to fly over my grave again
I need something to breathe
Baby, don't shiver now, why do you shiver now?
I need something to fly over my grave again
I need something to breathe ohh

I will try not to worry you
I have seen things that you will never see
Leave it to memory me, don't dare me to breathe

I want you to remember, ohh
I need something to fly over my grave again
I need something to breathe
Baby, don't shiver now, why do you shiver?
I need something to breathe
I want you to remember
