Breathe by Matt Scales – song lyrics

Our Team Katie video for 2010 features the song Breathe, from Matt Scales, a CF patient who died from the disease in 2007 at 28 years of age.

Matt’s personal struggle with CF made the song especially poignant, given his intimacy with the disease.

You can view more information about Matt and you can also download an mp3 copy of the song as well as an mp4 video of the song at this URL: http://www.cfvoice.com/info/breathe/index.jsp

Here are the lyrics to the song, Breathe:

Breathe
By Matt Scales
Through my eyes
I see you
Staring at me
All the time.
So I wish
That it would leave
My body.
I wish I could breathe
Like you, oh, breathe
I know the answer’s out there.
So won’t you help me, please?
Chorus:
Then one day I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe, I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe like you.
Then one day I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe, I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe like you.
I see the future.
It seems so clear.
That one day I’ll breathe like you.
Then I think that
I’m all right
But it keeps changin’
Like the weather.
It’s not up to me
How I feel
How I feel
Inside.
I wish I could breathe
Like you, oh, breathe
I know the answer’s out there.
Won’t you help me, please?
Chorus:
Then one day I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe, I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe like you.
Then one day I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe, I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe like you.
I see the future.
It seems so clear.
That one day I’ll breathe like you.
I wish I could breathe
Like you, oh, breathe
I know the answer’s out there.
Won’t you help me…please?
Cause one day I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe, I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe like you.
Then one day I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe, I’ll breathe
I’ll breathe like you.
I see the future.
It seems so clear.
That one day I’ll breathe like you…like you.

It will be 10 year anniversary on April 2nd . Not a day goes by that I don’t think of my little girl my only child.I had a song a on a cd about CF & my ex-husband took it . I don’t remember the name of the song but it was very nice.

    1. What was your Daughters name? And can you remember any of the words to the song? Our heart grieves for you Ms. Rossi. Our daughter also battles CF and yet she is perusing her dreams in Musical theater as best as she can. I asked for your daughters name because I would like to write something for you in memory of her. I can testify to the love the God has shown me by doing this for you. You are a very brave woman to have gone through all you did with and for your daughter. You are an inspiration to families all over the world !
