Barely Breathing by Duncan Sheik

I know (1)________ you're doing
I see it all too clear
I only taste the saline
When I kiss away your tears
You really had me going
Wishing on a star
But the black (2)__________ that (3)________________ you
Are heavier by far
I believed in your confusion
You were so completely torn
It must have been that yesterday
Was the day that I was born
There's not much to examine
There's nothing left to hide
You really can't be serious
If you have to ask me why

And I can't find the air
I don't know who I'm kidding
Imagining you care
And I could (10)__________ here waiting
A fool for another day
I don't suppose it's worth the price
It's worth the price, the price that I would pay
But I'm thinking it over anyway
I'm thinking it over anyway

I know what you're doing

I see it all too clear
