Now even though I try to play it off
I'm thinkin about you all day long
And I can't wait for shorty to come through
From your lips and back up to your eyes
My hands on your hips when we grind
I'm fantasizin bout what I'm gonna do to you
Got me fiending for her love can't lie
Man you should see how she got me
Spendin all this time with her
And I couldn't leave her if I wanted to
Her love turns me to a fool
Tell me what a man needs to do

Cuz I can't breathe when you talk to me
I can't breathe when you're touchin me
I suffocate when you're away from me
So much love you take from me
I'm going outta my mind
I can't breathe when you talk to me
I can't breathe when you're touchin me
I suffocate when you're away from me
So much love you take from me
I'm going outta my mind

Whenever we up in this bed
And my fingers fall in your hair
I wonder if you feel me watchin you
Cuz I can't go a night without your lovin
Got me lookin at this phone
Every time it rings I hope it's you,
You got my bracin for your love and I've
Fallen for you I can't lie
I just wanna be with you
And, Yes, you got me there I said it
Somebody call the paramedics
Tell em to hurry up and come through

Cuz I can't breathe when you talk to me (can't breathe)
I can't breathe when you're touchin me (when you touchin me)
I suffocate when you're away from me
So much love you take from me
I'm going outta my mind (I'm going outta my mind)
I can't breathe when you talk to me
I can't breathe when you're touchin me
I suffocate when you're away from me
So much love you take from me
I'm going outta my mind

Don't ever leave me girl
I need you inside my world
I can't go a day without you
And see nobody else will ever do
I'll never feel like I feel with you

Cuz I can't breathe when you talk to me
I can't breathe when you're touchin me (when you touchin me)
I suffocate when you're away from me
So much love you take from me
I'm going outta my mind (I'm going outta my mind)
I can't breathe when you talk to me (oh when you talk to me)
I can't breathe when you're touchin me (I can't breathe when you touchin me)
I suffocate when you're away from me
So much love you take from me
I'm going outta my mind (I'm going outta my mind, ohh)

Oh no no I can't breathe
Oh no no I can't breathe (I can't breathe)
Oh no no I can't breathe oh no

    We talk of suffocation wen deprived of breathe which crucial to a persn's survival thus i think he is expressing tht wen she is away, its like the life in him is being sucked out and only being with her will terminate the torture of suffocation...
