(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
