Lyrics

Well the rollin' tide moves the sea
There's wind across the water where the waves run free
I wanna catch my breath, feel that flow
But I'm caught up in this world I know

Six-lane life going far too fast
Forever changing lanes but I can't get past
Feeling choked. What do I need?
People tell me just breathe, but

Breathing's not as simple as it seems
This crazy pace is suffocating me
It should be automatic when the air is free
But breathing's not that easy

I wanna fly a kite on a sea blue sky
Dance it on the breeze; take a long deep sigh
But here I am tryin' to keep control
This highway's gonna take its toll

Breathing's not as simple as it seems
This crazy pace is suffocating me
It should be automatic when the air is free
But breathing's not that easy

Be still, breathe in, breathe out

Breathing's not as simple as it seems
This crazy pace is suffocating me
It should be automatic when the air is free
But breathing's not that easy
