Description
Music, Performance of all instruments, Arrangement, Production, and Engineering by Gator4040 (Gabe U)
Vocals by Shelby Chavez
Lyrics by Shelby Chavez and Gator4040

“Breathe” is inspired by the many aspects of life which can take one to a very dark place save for that one last “breath” of inspiration which serves to renew our sense of hope and the strength to go on. We all experience outside pressures that sometimes control the direction of life to our detriment. Whether it’s being with someone you love, being somewhere that gives you strength, regaining lost spirituality, or taking action to bring back a lost sense of control, “Breathe” is about closing your eyes, taking a deep breath and regaining the focus and strength to move on....

As always all constructive feedback is very welcome. Thanks for listening!

Lyrics
V1
Everyone outside
Tries to draw the line
Dictating a life
But with you everything is right

V2
Lost in love
Life two worlds apart
It can’t steal time its ours
Hours left in the dark
The darkness steals the night
Lights are fading fast
Finally...It’s time to breathe at last
Its time to breathe, time breathe at last...

Chorus

Breathe in...breathe out
Let everything out and breathe
Breathe in... breathe out
This is real life is love...two equals
Push everything out and breathe

Breathe in me.....

V3
Breathe with me
Till heart to heart they stop
Feel no space or time to
Draw the line
A pressured life
With you
Everything’s right...

Yes!!
Ahhh, this is awesome gator. I love your guitar work, such a lovely contrast to your gator-edge style which I like as well. Shelby's vocals are great; very well suited for this piece. Chorus just gave me a chill. For me-this is your best work since I like more of the mellow stuff but this has a little bit of both strumming and crunchy gator chords-well done!!! DL

Keep rockin-Patty:)

PG!
Thanks for the kind words Patty! I really worked my tail off on this and I cant thank my cousin Shelby enough for gracing me with her beautiful voice and lyrics. This is actually closer to my main style, that heavy screamo stuff rears its ugly head here and there. Big Chorus' and big guitars are my bread and butter. thanks again for checking it out!

This is great! Of course the vocal stands out beautifully. I really like the bass part. You put a lot of melody into the bass and the tone is excellent. Love the build to the chorus and the multiple layers of heavy guitars that greet the listener when we get there!

Thanks for stopping by and checking it out. I wrestled with this mix in trying to get that bass to have better definition and not overwhelmed by the guitars thanks again for the comments

Great music which is made even better with those great vocals. I think the vocals are sitting in just the right place and its a good mix. I like the bass line in this one, and it going without saying those guitars are great. I like build about 1:45 in, those backing vocals are great.

this was my most challenging mix yet. I tried to make sure Shelby's vocals were highlighted and struggled a bit with keeping the "big" chorus from getting too out of control. thanks again for your feedback

I tried to build that intensity and getting those guitars to sound massive and slam into that bridge was challenging for me. Im learning something new every time I have a go at this. thanks again!

Excellent
I think I like this the best out of all your tunes so far. Everything sounds awesome. Vocal performance is well done and totally fits the song. Piano during the verse is very tasteful. Guitars propel the song and achieve that satisfying thick sound. Very well composed and the mix is clear and full sounding. Great stuff!

awigze said 2314 days ago (August 11th, 2011)
great song
all is well here. This is big in all kinds of ways. Guitars, vocals production, all good. Breathing... I once was working with a doctor and I was explaining that we needed a few more minutes to get something set (audio/visual stuff in the classroom) He said, 'As long as we have an airway, everything is ok, isn't it?" It kind of changed my perspective on things.

Nicely Done......
Cool track I like how you put this together, a really good vocal from the
young lady......
You wouldn't think big guitars would work on top of her voice, guess
that proves that......

I......LIKE IT............

Soundhoud
Thanks for checking out the tune and for the comments! I really wanted those huge Guitars to slam into the chorus/Bridge like a ton of bricks and the challenge was to make that happen without overwhelming everything. Being a guitar guy it just wouldnt be right if there wasnt a monster guitar in there somewhere! :)

This is freakin' wild.
Sounds like a Stevie Nicks song with a hint of Pearl Jam in the music. Pretty good stuff in my books that's for damn sure!I'm not a musician but I like to pretend to be one... :)

Great one Gabe/Shelby
big rock/ballad. Loved what you did with the guitars- nice variations in tone. The vocals got stronger and stronger- love that note at 03:14 (just after the megaphone FX) and they seem better from 03:14 onwards. My only suggestion is on the arrangement: with so much good stuff to choose from, I would have been tempted to have less in the very first vocal verse (strip that down some more eg. no guitars?, just keys) would make more oomph when the guitars returned shortly after (light/shade) kinda thang. Overall: excellent work you two.

Thanks for the kind words and the feedback. I did debate striping down that first verse but the clean guitars provided the foundation and it didnt sound quite right to me. Thanks again for the checking it out!
