Candlebox - Breathe Me In Lyrics

You came out of nowhere, and our eyes collide
Like a wall collapsing, a crushing tide
And I saw you laughing, and I saw your smile
It made me anxious baby, it made me high
You ask I answer no, that seat's been removed
You're a deep-rooted tree, an artist's muse
I watch you listen, and I watch you share
You make me want more
And you make me scared
You're so much more than I'd ever hoped

So won't you breathe
Oh won't you breathe
Breathe me in
So I am whole

Oh won't you breathe
Oh won't you breathe
Breathe me in
So I am whole

We're miles from home, we're one another's tribe
An autumn season in a summer's time
And I watch you circle
And baby I watch you fall
You make me feel what I thought
I could never feel at all
And you're so much more
Than I'd ever hoped

So won't you breathe
Oh won't you breathe
Breathe me in
So I am whole
Oh won't you breathe
Oh won't you breathe
Breathe me in
So I am whole

Let it out, let it go, ok to breathe
Let it out, let it go, ok
So much more than
Oh, let it out let it go ok to breathe
Let it out let it go ok
So much more than

So much more than I had ever hoped
So much more than I had ever
So much more than I had ever
So much more than I had ever hoped
Oh won't you breathe me in
Oh won't you breathe me in
Oh won't you breathe me in

Candlebox Breathe Me In Comments
  1. Andy Brack

    God damn this is a great song.

  2. Diana Garrow

    I've been to two live shows at Hampton Beach New Hampshire, absolutely awesome performances .My teenage son introduced me to their music . Can't thank him enough . CandleBox carries us through great times , good times and sad times. My second son now 20 years old was at the Hampton Beach Casino with me .At that show Kevin Martin wanted to return an envelope to me ,said no it's your song but I wouldn't go to the stage , it was left with him .

  3. Diana Garrow

    Loving CandleBox always

  4. J Harold

  34. Sean Collins

    My wife is gone, and this song makes me weep harder then I have ever weeped in my life, becuase I once asked her to breathe me in so I could be whole when we were 17 yrs old and we held on as tight as we could for 23 years.

Just remember what they would want for us. To keep on going and not give up. Man I can't imagine but I hope you get anything you want and need to help you through it. You deserve the best life can give you and anybody with that kind of loss does as well.

  36. Jordan Stuteville

    All I Keep Hearing Is How Eddie Vedder Is The Last Singer Of Grunge Left. Well Don't Forget About The Genius Kevin Martin!!!

    Shane Miller

    Jordan Stuteville This is not grunge by any means.

    Caio Cesar

    This is post-grunge, but I would say it's a high quality post-grunge, it's the grungiest post-grunge, btw they are from Seatle aswell.

    Lita Wells

    Jerry Thomas

    Lorraine Smith don’t do it. Just get a hooker.

  67. Audrey Patterson

    One of the most underrated bands imo. So much awesome too many seem to overlook. At least in my circle that is. But then again. Im 23 and surrounded by closeminded music listeners lol

    Lully LuLz

    Audrey Patterson I know how that goes. I always caught shit for listening to Pearl jam and candlebox. you can't deny good music regardless of genre.

    ZombieChrist X

    Audrey Patterson Your smart, def one of greatest bands ever and wayyyy underrated

    Colleen Garland been around for ages and never got the attention they deserve.

  68. Nacho Garcia

    Deberian subtitular esta cancion en español ademas:(

  69. Varun Sharma

    This song grabs hold of desire and transforms it into something so much more sweeter. It takes the painful affliction of wanting a woman, and turns it into a celebration of our human condition. It makes the animal in me feel more like a pegasus. Right out of the 90s, for all the crap people listen to nowadays.   

    Nichole Brower

    Well said. I happened upon this by accident. Coming to believe that there are NO accidents.


    Varun Sharma. well said, Bullseye!!

  70. darren cates

    I love this song...  great  tune for sure :)

  71. Abe6345789

    feels so much like a Journey tune

  72. Nous

    What is he saying in the first 20 seconds? Thanks for the upload!


    He's saying "breathe me in", but it's played backwards.

  73. Alec B. Williams

    Just Breathe

    i know right?

  78. Douglas Miller

    Bad ass

  79. sweetnessisamber


  80. James Holcomb

    Viciousjerm, Nothing Zep about this ?? Come man the whole intro has the "No Quarter" feel to it.  Not saying it is Zep it's Candlebox and a cool tune but go listen to No Quarter and tell me it's not in the same vein.

    Simon MItchell

    C'box unlike a lot of 90's bands always gave props to their Classic Rock heroes. I always felt they deliberately added riffs from The Who, Zep, Sabbath etc in their songs

    Ray Pratt

    James Holcomb agreed definitely a ZEP feel to it,awesome tho reminds me why I love music so much!!

  81. sincitydrummer

    seen them here in vegas  this past july 25 th at the hardrock to meet them....real good people,awesum fucking band!! keep on keepin' on! 

  82. Amber Harrell

    this was their song:(

  83. mellisaemerson33

    Alive in Seattle is awesome. I seen them live in south bend Indiana at landing and it was awesome...I've loved them since I was a teen when they first came on the scene...

  84. Ashlynn S

    Candlebox is playing at the new daisy theater in Memphis,Tennessee October the 20th

    Cory Sutton

    I was there!

  85. Allen Cooper

    My wife and I have seen them live several times. if you haven't seen them live - and are a fan - you are truly missing out, y, thats kevin right there in my profile pic :)

  86. Raven McDaniel

    Puts you in one of those states of mind where you pick yourself back up and move on and up, in search of the next best thing.

  87. viciousjerm

    Nothing zepp about this song more like it could of been the starting song to the sopranos

  88. permanentgrin

    Cool Zeppelin kind of vibe on this tune. glad someone special turned me onto this.. Also glad I rediscovered this band! Alive In Seattle is off the hook.. They just slay it on Arrow,.

  89. erostopholia

    6:06 - 7:30 Best part of song.

    Jennifer Bogatay

    Like CPR Life then it fly's away. I was almost dead then you breathe the breath of love and life,that's when my veins started to pump.much love and O2 pumping shear LIFE though me. Thank you baby........

  90. james rice
