(feat. Jordin Sparks)

Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air

[Jordin]
If I should die before I wake
It's cause you took my breath away
Losing you is like living in a world with no air, oh

[Chris]
I'm here alone, didn't wanna leave
My heart won't move, it's incomplete
Wish there was a way that I can make you understand

[Jordin]
But how
Do you expect me, to live alone with just me
'Cause my world revolves around you
It's so hard for me to breathe

[Chorus-Both]
Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
That's how I feel whenever you ain't there
There's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon' be without me
If you ain't here, I just can't breathe
There's no air, no air

No air air
No air air
No air air
No air air

[Chris]
I walked, I ran, I jumped, I flew,
Right off the ground to float to you
There's no gravity to hold me down, for real

[Jordin]
But somehow I'm still alive inside
You took my breath but I survived
I don't know how but I don't even care

[Both]
So how
Do you expect me, to live alone with just me
'Cause my world revolves around you
It's so hard for me to breathe

[Chorus-Both]
Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
That's how I feel whenever you ain't there
There's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon' be without me
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
There's no air, no air
No air air
No air air
No air air
No air air

No more
No air
There's no air, no air
Ooohh...

[Chorus-Both]
Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
That's how I feel whenever you ain't there
There's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon' be without me
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
There's no air, no air

[Jordin]
(Do you expect me, to live alone with just me
Cause my world revolves around you
It's so hard for me to breathe)

[Both]
Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
That's how I feel whenever you ain't there
There's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon' be without me?
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
There's no air, no air
No air air
No air air
No air air

No air

    Chris and Jordin. You rock both o you. I totally agree and will always agree that. So how do you expect me, to live alone with just me cause my worl revolves around you, its so hard for me to breathe! Awesome! Is like they is something that needed them to be apart. Chris says"am here alone didn't wanna leave' and now is difficult for both o them to just breathe. When you truly love each other, you don't want to miss each others minute. Ooo! I mean how do you survive? Is usually a struggle. Living in a world with no air. Air is your love.

    My crush and I were walking together, and while we were walking we had a duet. And I thought to myself: If he liked the song Beautiful Girls (we were singing that), why not this one? So I plan to teach him this song the next time we see each other.
    Btw, he knows that I like him. Everyone in my class knows that I like him. And one of his friends said to him: "Why don't you have a duet with her?"

    I love this song, it really means alot to me to be honest. Me and my boyfriend, borke up before this song was released. And his friends and my friends were telling me he still liked me and I still liked him, then this song was released and we got back together so yeah it means alot to me (:
    ooo and I think Chris Brown should do another song like this-coz its brill!- but with Rihanna too, as they're engaged!
