Second Breath ©

Stephen Daly
Glasgow, Scotland
2003

You know when you're anxious inside
or outside for all to see
you know when you feel
like it has all been done
and you are nothing
and you could die just to be free
you know when you talk with Angels
looking for respite
from the pain and harm
life's caused you
that keeps you up all night
Take a second breath
and breathe easy
Everything is going to be all-right

You know when you've got no one
to talk to or no one understands
you don't feel like singing
or they say you're old and have no charm
still judging you on past mistakes
or you're curled up with fright
you know if you're sitting in despair
and you think no one cares
or the streets are cold and heartless
and the candle has no light
Just take a second breath
and breathe easy
it is going to be all-right

You know if you're poor and have nothing
or you're drowning in the rain
trying to look for healing
to extinguish all the pain
If you think you're all alone
just because no one's in sight
or sick of hearing voices
or being bitten
by a shark in the sea of life
or just feel not quite
just take a second breath
and breathe easy
it's going to be all-right

Just take a second breath
and breathe easy
it is going to be all-right........
