Creed - ''One Last Breath'' (Official Video)



In this song, the person that Scott Stapp sings about thinks that his life is over, but with his last breath he's trying to hold on to life and the things he loves about it. He's going nowhere in his life, and he's trying to escape. Later in the song, his outlook gets even darker ("now that it's over"), and he's reflecting on the mistakes he made and crying out to heaven for help. In the last part of the song he has found the strength to go on ("But I still believe there's something left for me"), and even though he's down to his last breath, he still thinks that his life will get better.


Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti wrote the music for their songs. He told us, "'One Last Breath' is one of my favorite guitar lines, so it's one of my favorite musical compositions for Creed. It's a song that turned out to be one of our biggest songs we ever put out. I think it had some of the most views we've ever had on YouTube, so it's a very important one for the Creed camp."


This video is indeed one of the band's most popular. Directed by Dave Meyers, it features some fancy compositing, putting the band in a fantastical landscape of cliffs and ruins. Meyers also did the "With Arms Wide Open" video, as well as videos for Missy Elliott ("Work It"), Pink ("So What"), and many others.



Lyrics



Please come now I think I'm falling

I'm holding on to all I think is safe

It seems I found the road to nowhere

And I'm trying to escape

I yelled back when I heard thunder

But I'm down to one last breath

And with it let me say, let me say


Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

Maybe six feet ain't so far down


I'm looking down now that it's over

Reflecting on all of my mistakes

I thought I found the road to somewhere

Somewhere in His grace

I cried out heaven save me (save me)

But I'm down to one last breath

And with it let me say, let me say


Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

Maybe six feet ain't so far down


Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

Maybe six feet ain't so far down, I'm so far down


Sad eyes follow me

But I still believe there's something left for me

So please come stay with me

'Cause I still believe there's something left for you and me

For you and me for you and me


Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking


Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

Maybe six feet ain't so far down


Hold me now

I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking

Maybe six feet ain't so far down


Please come now I think I'm falling

I'm holding on to all I think is safe
