Safe Adam – Breathing Lyrics

I try to follow the signs – 1
That’s how I live my life
Cause when I needed my heart it all goes wrong
My journey has been on time
But only for a short while
The road that i’ve been on is far too long
And the pictures never clear when its all gone cold
No more counting my excuses i’ve got to be strong

Right now i’m building bridges – 2
The shortcuts don’t work no more
I’m not taking no more chances
Cause I can bleed no more
I wasn’t born with a heart that’s hollow
So I can help to love
No I don’t want none to follow
I want to do this on my own

Thank God i’m breathing – 3
I’m breathing
Thank God i’m breathing
I’m breathing

When there’s no-where to hide
And what’s wrong feels right
And the places that we know have all gone cold
I will search for the light
And not get pulled by the tide
And I will find the place that I call home
And the picture’s never clear when it’s all gone cold
No more counting my excuses i’ve got to be strong

Right now i’m building bridges
The shortcuts don’t work no more
I’m not taking no more chances
Cause I can bleed no more
I wasn’t born with a heart that’s hollow
So I can help to love
No I don’t want none to follow
I want to do this on my own

Thank God i’m breathing
I’m breathing
Thank God i’m breathing
I’m breathing

Right now i’m building bridges
The shortcuts don’t work no more
I’m not taking no more chances
Cause I can bleed no more
I wasn’t born with a heart that’s hollow
So I can help to love
No I don’t want none to follow
I want to do this on my own

Thank God i’m breathing
I’m breathing
Thank God i’m breathing
I’m breathing
Thank God i’m breathing
I’m breathing

1 I try to follow the signs

Allah placed many signs in this world and referred to them in the Quran:

We will show them Our Signs in the universe, and in their own selves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (the Quran) is the truth” (Quran 41:53)

“So today We will save you in body that you may be to those who succeed you a sign. And indeed, many among the people, of Our signs, are heedless” (Quran 10:92) – referring to the preservation of Pharaoh

2 Right now i’m building bridges

“Say: “O People of the Book! come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah.” If then they turn back, say ye: “Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah’s Will)” (Quran 3:64)

3 Thank God i’m breathing

It’s important to thank Allah for everything:

“… and be grateful to Allah, if it is Him you worship” (Al-Baqarah 2:172)

Furthermore we are taught that being thankful to Allah is for our benefit, and will not change Allah in the slightest:

“And whoever is grateful, he is only grateful for the benefit of his own self” (Luqman 31:12)
