As promised, here’s a new (for those of you who’ve missed our last two concerts) song called “Remember to Breathe,” which I just wrote a few months ago!

Milo:

I’ve been busy studying for my midterms because as soon as they’re out of the way… I can resume studying for my national boards!

Cooper:

Valentine’s Day was this week, and I spent it with the lovely Raeanne Schlotterbeck. We exchanged candy and gift items on Tuesday, and we will be going on a real date this weekend. Conflicting schedules dictated our plans for us. We will be be eating and then seeing The Vow this Sunday. While I’ve heard nothing but terrible things about the film, I’m sure I’ll endure it. It’s all for love, after all!

Remember to Breathe lyrics:

I looked up, dropped my jaw to my expectations.
I forgot I’d forgotten my limitations.
I lost footing in my shifting mentality.
“Hello, can I get an… umm… Can I get a look in your eyes?
Can you help me with this–help me, it’s the look in your eyes.
I’d never seen–you see–but I see you and me.”

’cause I’m lost. I don’t care where I am as long as I
I’ve waited for someone to break me down to who I am
And question why I’ve held on to all this pain
When I knew someday I’d find all I’ve found in you.

I sit up. Did I really spend my dreaming time living last night?
’cause I can’t believe that I’d even stumbled into your sight.
You’re like a glacier racing for my hard disbelief.
I don’t know what to do ’cause I’m not used to being here in this role.
I thought I was doomed to be the leader; doomed to endless control
But I would follow you anywhere.

’cause I’m lost I don’t care where I am as long as I
I’ve waited for someone to break me down to who I am
And question why I’ve held on to all this pain
When I knew someday I’d find all I’ve found in you.

All I’ve found in you
All I’ve found in you
All I’ve found in you
Ooh, in you…

I see you standing in your robe of self conscious need
Like a shining bright sparkling–breathe
I’ve got to breathe. I’ve got to remember to keep
Breathing when I look in your eyes.
I want to kiss your neck or touch your lips, I want to see your eyes
Or turn your back so I could nibble on your shoulders ’cause I can’t
Believe I can’t breathe, be, hear, see,
Laugh at me. Laugh at me. Laugh at me. Laugh at me.

I had so many words when you walked through the door
But they all feel so tiny when I’m holding them up to your smile
Makes me want to cry out and want to cry inside.
It hurts to see you looking so good that I can’t stop the words
’cause you deserve to hear and feel the roar here in my heart
When it’s close to yours, you’re close to me.

’cause I’m lost I don’t care where I am as long as I
I’ve waited for someone to break me down to who I am
And question why I’ve held on to all this pain
When I knew someday I’d find all I’ve found in you.
