Story

Written in August of 1999 in Moorhead, MN. The humidity on this particular August night was unbearable. I lived in between a swamp and a river in a house with no air conditioning. At 3am when this song happened there was condensation running off the top of my guitar. Sleep was out of the question.

Lyrics

Swim in my room Can you feel the air around us? Move Free Breathe Embrace the heat There is no way to escape it Rise Feel Breathe Breathe deep with me Welcome the night Notice now that there is no wind And move Free Breathe Expect the rain Predict that you cannot know it Fall Free Breathe Breathe deep with me Look above the clouds See that the sun is always shining Move Free Breathe Swim in my room Can you feel the air around us? Move Free Breathe Breathe deep with me Lie still...breathe 2003 Eric Addington Music ASCAP
