one...
try to breathe in
two...
try to breathe out
ten...
twenty...
forty...
are you still breathing?

as my whispers trickle across your skin
promises of today and tomorrow scream in silence
while wishes swallow their intentions whole
the sheep keep jumping the fence

are you still breathing?

as my words slowly swim throughout your veins
an alcoholic dance that only you and I can ever know
just twirling twirling around the obvious obligations
the need - the need - and the sheep keep jumping the fence
one...
try to breathe in
two...
try to breathe out
ten...
twenty...
forty...
are you still breathing?

as the sound of forgetting peirces the air
no want - no wishes - no need - no obligations
no one else will ever hear that I love you...
as the sheep keep jumping the fence
one...
try to breathe in
two...
try to breathe out
ten...
twenty...
forty...
sixty...

...I loved you
