Try Not to Breathe

This song is by R.E.M. and appears on the album Automatic for the People (1992).

I will try not to breathe
I can hold my head still with my hands at my knees
These eyes are the eyes of the old
Shiver in the cold

I will try not to breathe
This decision is mine
I have lived a full life
And these are the eyes that I want you to remember

Oh, I need something to fly over my grave again
I need something to breathe

I will try not to burden you
I can hold these inside
I will hold my breath until all these shivers subside
Just look in my eyes

I will try not to worry you
I have seen things that you will never see
Leave it to memory me
I shudder to breathe

I want you to remember, oh (You will never see)
I need something to fly (Something to fly)
Over my grave again (You will never see)
I need something to breathe (Something to breathe)

Baby don't shiver now
Why do you shiver now? (I have seen things you will never see)
I need something to fly (Something to fly)
Over my grave again (I have seen things you will never see)
I need something to breathe
Oh, oh, oh

I will try not to worry you
I have seen things that you will never see
Leave it to memory me
Don't dare me to breathe

I want you to remember, oh (You will never see)
I need something to fly (Something to fly)
Over my grave again (You will never see)
I need something to breathe (Something to breathe)

Baby don't shiver now
Why do you shiver now? (I have seen things you will never see)
I need something to breathe (Something to breathe)
(I have seen things you will never see) I want you to remember
