The Breath You Take
He looks up from second base dad's up in the stands
He saw the hit, the run, the slide there ain't no bigger fan
In the parking lot after the game he said
"Dad I thought you had a plane to catch"
He smiled and said "Yeah son I did"

Life's not the breaths you take
The breathing in and out
That gets you through the day
Ain't what it's all about
Ya just might miss the point
Try'n to win the race
Life's not the breaths you take
But the moments that take your breath away

Fast forward fifteen years
And a thousand miles away
Boy's built a life he's got a wife
And a baby due today
He hears a voice saying "I made it son
He said "I told you dad you didn't have to come"
He smiles and says "Yeah I know you did"

Life's not the breaths you take
The breathing in and out
That gets you through the day
Ain't what it's all about
Ya just might miss the point
Try'n to win the race
Life's not the breaths you take
But the moments that take your breath away

Just like it took my breath when she was born
Just like it took my breath away when dad took his last that morn

Life's not the breaths you take
The breathing in and out
That gets you through the day
Ain't what it's all about
Ya just might miss the point
If ya don't slow down the pace
Life's not the breaths you take
