Lyrics
:

Silver rivers reflect the sun
On black highways I will be done
Mile on mile...  of empty heat
I will wait for you...
I will not look back

I breathe the air
I watch the sun
Rise and fall
In twenty four hours
I breathe the air
I watch the sun
Rise and fall
In twenty four hours
I breathe

The art of bluff has always practised on me
I have been fooled by the rock 'n roll dream
All I ever wanted...�� snatched away
By a piece of paper...
I will not look back

I breathe the air
I watch the sun
Rise and fall
In twenty four hours
I breathe the air
(Breathe the air)
I watch the sun
(Watch the sun)
Rise and fall
(Rise and fall)
In twenty four hours
I breathe

I feel your heart beating next to mine
You're the only thing I ever wanted or desired
If I should falter... lose my way
Always believe me
I will not look back

I breathe the air
I watch the sun
Rise and fall
In twenty four hours
I breathe the air
(B reathe the air)
I watch the sun
(Watch the sun)
Rise and fall
(Rise and fall)
In twenty four hours

(repeat to fade)


Chasing shadows all night long
Indian nation...� a tattooed arm
Manifest destiny drives my car
I will follow you....
I will not look back

Mike Peters Notes
:”A song written by Jules Jones. ‘Breathe’ started life as a four track demo based around a loose arrangement of drum machine and keyboard. I heard Jules singing the melody and was immediately hooked. I used my position as leader of the band (!) and ‘nicked’ the song, adding an acoustic guitar riff and harmonica. Having been a collaborator with Eddie MacDonald on many songs during my time with The Alarm, it was good to work in this way. Trading ideas with other people is healthy and although I am now a ‘solo’ artist, I don’t want to isolate myself too much and I hope to collaborate more in the future. The idea of using ‘Breathe’ as the title track came late into the recording sessions. There were many working titles, but the lines that most expressed the artistic and personal freedom I now feel, seemed to come from the chorus of ‘Breathe’.”
