Don't hold your breath

You can't touch me now
There's no feeling left
If you think I'm coming back
Don't hold your breath
What you did to me
Boy I can't forget
If you think I'm coming back
Don't hold your breath

I was under your spell for such a long time,
Couldn't break the chains
You played with my heart,
Told me (...) with all your lies and games
It took all the strength I had
But I crawled up on my feet again
Now you're trying to lure me back
But no, those days are gone, my friend

I loved you so much that I thought someday that you could change
But all you brought me was a heart full of pain

You can't touch me now
There's no feeling left
If you think I'm coming back,
Don't hold your breath
What you did to me
Boy I can't forget
If you think I'm coming back,
Don't hold your breath
Don't hold your breath

I was worried about you
But you never cared about me none
You took my money
And I know that you, you could kill someone
I gave you everything
But nothing was ever enough
You were always jealous over such crazy stuff

You can't touch me now
There's no feeling left
If you think I'm coming back, Don't hold your breath
What you did to me
Boy I can't forget
If you think I'm coming back,
Don't hold your breath
Don't hold your breath

Move on,
Don't look back
I jumped off a train
Running off the tracks
Your days gone,
Face the facts
A bad movie ends
And the screen fades to black

What you did to me
Boy I can't forget
If you think I'm coming back
(You can't touch me now)

You can't touch me now
There's no feeling left
If you think I'm coming back,
Don't hold your breath
What you did to me
Boy I can't forget
If you think I'm coming back,
Don't hold your breath

You can't touch me now
There's no feeling left
If you think I'm coming back,
Don't hold your breath
What you did to me
Boy I can't forget
If you think I'm coming back,
Don't hold your breath

Oooh

    The meaning of this is that there is a girl and she loved her boyfried loads, and he didn't love her, and her took her money and abused her, and for ages she thought he would change, but he didn't and she's saying she won't come back, so don't expect her to, and she's just moving on, and not treating it like her failure.

    This song is all about loosing urself to someone and if u think after giving each and every thing they can't give u back a little fraction of love that u deserve then just leave them coz wasting time n ur emotions for such people hurt u and just move in life that destiny is deciding something else for you... And dont carry it as your failure because u did ur best and now you deserve something better and equal to your standard... Coz holding your breath that they will understand you one day is al about wasting life...!!!

    This song means that. No matter how much she wants to stop loving him she can't. But she won't let him hurt her anymore. She thought he could change his ways. But he stayed the same. And he hurt her alot. And she's saying thats it. Im not going back for you to hurt me again . ~ v1ck13

    This song atleast to me says that no matter what, no matter how much it hurts if you use a girl or man and let her think you love then,don't hold your breath about her/he/they coming back with some sweet words and tender gestures. Life isn't fair, and using someone isn't right no matter your "past experiences" and "emotional issues". A message to anyone with handups about past relationships, deal with the first and don't bring it into a new relationship as an excuse. Your just hurting yourself, the person your with, and your relationships.
