What's in a name?

Ok so I submitted my concept into a literary agent contest today, and part of the process was re-naming my book.

"Forgetting Me" was a good name for my original outline and the first chunk of the book, but now that it is done, I just didn't really think that it fit anymore, in the least it was only "good" and I'm looking for "Great!"

So after some rather goofy and long-winded brainstorming I decided to name it after the song I was using as a playlist for over half the book.

"Breathe Again"

The song shares that title and is written/performed by Sara Bareilles. It was the sound that captured me, and the lyrics fit perfectly. I literally had it on repeat in the background while writing some of the chapters.

"All I have, all I need, he's the air that I'd kill to breathe. Holds my love in his hands, still I'm searching for something. Out of breath I'm left hoping someday I'll breathe again."
