Lyrics

This Very Breath I Breathe

This very breath I breathe arose on another planet
A comet brought it here when it crashed into this granite
And then it stewed for awhile in a sea of boiling wonder
And rose again and again as it rolled around in the thunder

Then there came the animals that never had a name
They stood inside the thicket in the cold and pouring rain
And from their mouths, their panting breath like smoke hung in the air
I watched them from this corner, and I still can see them there

Breathe, breathe, breathe

This very breath I breathe was once in the lungs of Caesar
And Abelard to Eloise used this air when he sang to please her
And what a song it was, I still can hear it ringing
Oh, love is love is love is love is love
I still can hear him singing

Breathe, breathe, breathe…
This very breath I breathe
