This song was written for my thesis film, "When the Waters Rise." Eric Peters agreed to write the song, and I agreed to film the music video. We had a trailer release concert for the film and an unveiling of "Don't Hold Your Breath" in Tallahassee. That day we filmed this video at a local park. A man named "David Gibbs" stopped by to watch Eric play and sing for the camera. Then David sang for us a song he wrote, and sold us some flowers.
