I wrote this song for my first love, my high school sweetheart. His name was Byron. He died in 1993, he was stabbed in a robbery. We had been broken up for a long time when it happened but the place in my heart with his name on it is indelible. Many years after he died I had a dream where he came to me looking handsome as ever. I woke up from that dream and wrote this song.

Lyrics

As I Breathe

Something tells me not to chase you this time
That you’ll be there when the moment is right
The games and machinations of this life
I know we won’t care, we won’t care
--------
As I breathe as I stand
As the oceans ever wash upon the sand
Love will be all I am
I rest my heart forever in your hands
--------
In my solitary dreams I know it’s you
In the gentle quiet of my candlelit room
All I hear is a song that sings so true
You and me there, you and me there

As I breathe as I stand
As the oceans ever wash upon the sand
Love will be all I am
I rest my heart forever in your hands

I dreamed we were dancing in the light
Naturally love was all over our lives
Moving gently in our time
Can I stay here forever by your side

Morning comes and my dreams of you fly away
Such a nice beginning to a fine and beautiful day
To the sun I lift my head and say
You know I will always love you
I will always care

As I breathe as I stand
As the oceans ever wash upon the sand
Love will be all I am
I rest my heart forever in your hands
