Breathe was written while I was living in Austin, Texas in 2000. It was one of the demos I gave Leslie when she was driving up to see me, that convinced her we should start a new band.
This song is a fictional story about letting go of the fears of falling in love, and just going with it. Too many times in life people don't believe in themselves enough to just take a chance. This is what Breathe is all about.
That feeling of first love, those first dates, and that longing for the one you are falling in love with when they're not around.
Breathe was one of the most popular Provision songs among fans when we first began performing live. Breathe was originally released on the 1st WXJL compilation released by Ninthwave Records in 2001,
to an extremely positive response; and still remains a favorite of fans and D.J.'s to this day.

I’m now involved in all your wildest obsessions.
My tears are drying, I see faith in your eyes.
You’re giving in to all the fears of deception.
We always push away the thoughts we despise.
What is it though? Is It physical?
Always sensual. Like a ritual.
Is this all I’m left with? You’re the bed I sleep in.
When you’re not here anymore.
You’re the air I breathe in.
Come take a chance and we’ll be gone in a second. Don’t bother crying now, cause I’ll never leave!
Now you’re forgetting all the past recollections.
Body and soul is what it takes to believe.
What is it though? Is it sexual?
Intellectual? Like a ritual.
