{ft. Chris Brown}

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 Brown}
I'm here alone, didn't wanna leave
My heart won't move, it's incomplete
Wish there was a way that I could 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}
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 gonna be without me
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
There'a no air, no air

No air, air {4x}

[Chris Brown]
I walked, I ran, I jumped, I flew
Right off the ground, to flow 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

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}
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 gonna be without me
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
There's no air, no air

No air, air {4x}

{Ad libs}

{Repeat Chorus}

    the song's meaning is.. when your love one is not with you, not around you, it hurts so much. it's like you are dying because of missing them. it's like living in a world without air. no air, u can't breathe. and it's so hard for yourself. just like being separated from the one you love.

    It's like love wasn't enough to make the other one stay so it's as if the one can't go on because its taking its air away..

    The meaning to this song is that if the person you love is not there, you can't breath. Then you just feel sad and can't wait for them to come back.
