Following up some pronunciation points with a listening activity, I'd like first to remind you about the difference between BREATH (noun, an act of breathing) and BREATHE (verb meaning "inhale and exhale air") . Hope you know which transcription, [breθ] or [briːð], goes with which word ;)

I see your face in my ___________ as I drive away,
Cause none of us thought it was gonna end that way.
People are people,
And sometimes we ___________ our minds.
But it’s ___________ me to see you go after all this time.

Music starts playin’ like the end of a _______ movie,
It’s the _________ ending you don’t really wanna see.
Cause it’s tragedy and it’ll only __________ you down,
Now I don’t know what to be without you _________.

And we know it’s never simple,
Never easy.
Never a ______ break, no one here to ______ me.
You’re the only thing I know like the ______ of my hand,
And I can’t,
Without you,
But I have to,
Without you,
But I have to.

Never wanted this, never wanna see you _____.
Every little ______ in the road I tried to swerve.
But people are people,
And sometimes it doesn’t _______ out,
Nothing we say is gonna save us from the ______ out.
It’s _______ a.m.
Feelin' like I just _______ a friend.
Hope you know it’s not easy,
Easy for me.
It’s two a.m.
Feelin’ like I just lost a friend.
Hope you know this ain’t easy,

Easy for me
