I came apart inside a world made of angry people
I found a boy who had a dream
Making everyone smile
He was sunshine
I fell over my feet
Like bricks underwater
How am I supposed to tell you how I feel
I need oxygen

Chorus:
Oh baby, if I was your lady
I would make you happy
I'm never gonna leave,
Never gonna leave
Oh baby, I will be your lady
I'm going crazy for you

And so I found a state of mind
Where I could be speechless
I had to try it for a while
To figure out this feeling
This felt so right
Pull me upside down to a place
Where you've been waiting
How am I supposed to tell you how I feel
I need oxygen

Chorus:
Oh baby if I was your lady
I will make you happy
I'm never gonna leave,
Never gonna leave
Oh baby I will be your lady
I am going crazy for you

And you don't wanna keep me waiting
Staring at my fingers
Feeling like a fool

Oh baby I will be your lady
I'll make you happy
I'm never gonna leave,
Never gonna leave
Oh baby I will be your lady
I am going crazy

Tell me what you want,
Baby tell me what you need
Anything I ask, baby give it to me
Baby give it to me, give it to me
Give it to me, give it to me
Baby give it to me, give it to me

I came apart inside a world made of angry people
I found a boy who had a dream
Making everyone smile
He was sunshine

    I think Colbie is a marvelous singer, and you just always want to listen to her songs. They're like Fireflies (Owl City.) I've listened to a ton of her songs, and I have yet to find one I don't like. "Oxygen" is a great song to listen to waking up or calming down to get ready for bed.
    I believe Colbie has found a boyfriend who she'll do anything for. She wants to "be his lady." She needs him and will do anything for him. Great job, Colbie Caillat!
