Taylor Swift - Breathe Lyrics

I see your _1_ in my mind as I drive away
'Cause none of us thought it was gonna end that way
People are people and sometimes we change our _2_
But it's _3_ me to see you go after all this time

Music starts playin' like the end of a sad _4_
It's the kinda ending you don't really wanna see
'Cause it's _5_ and it'll only bring you down
Now I don't know what to be without you around

And we know it's never _6_, never easy
Never a clean break, no one here to save me
You're the only thing I know like the back of my hand

And I can't breathe
Without you, but I have to
Breathe
Without you, but I have to

Never wanted this, never want to see you _7_
Every little bump in the road I tried to swerve
People are people and sometimes it doesn't work out
_8_ we say is gonna save us from the fall out

And we know it's never simple., never easy
Never a clean break, no one here to save me
You're the only thing I know like the back of my hand

And I can't breathe
Without you, but I have to
Breathe
Without you, but I have to

It's two a.m., feelin' like I just lost a _9_
Hope you know it's not easy, easy for me
It's two a.m., feelin' like I just lost a friend
Hope you know this ain't easy, easy for me
