Joe Diffie - One More Breath Lyrics




Some people never love
Some keep a chain of withered hearts
Some leave a trail of lovers
Like old abandoned cars

Me, I've lit a thousand candles
Flame of hope at both ends
Waiting for someone who
Never did come back again

Said a prayer
And there was you

You lay your cool cross
across this blistered heart
You turned a light on
In a corner that's always been dark

You loved me when I was not kind
When my soul was fire and ice
You pointed out the diamonds
That only felt like stones to me

Said a prayer
And there was you

Be the last thing these eyes see
When I am called from this earth
Be the kiss that testifies
Louder than final words
Be the air I cling to when I leave
Then my final prayer will be

One more look, one more taste, one more breath

Some people count their money
Some people count their friends
Some just collect their tears
In pillows where all their dreams end

Moments are my silver
Days are my best companion
Years are sweeter than dreams
When every one is given
To a prayer, and you

Be the last thing these eyes see
When I am called from this earth
Be the kiss that testifies
Louder than final words
Be the air I cling to when I leave
Then my final prayer will be

One more look, one more taste, one more breath

One more look, one more taste, one more breath
