In your fitted raincoat and tangled winter hair
Cheeks a little rosy in the February air
Running through the subway to catch the Uptown train
Spend the night just dancing
Running through the subway to catch the Uptown train
Spend the night just dancing

[Chorus:]
I want you, yeah I want you
I want you, yeah I want you bad
So bad I can't think straight
So bad all my bones shake
So bad I can't breathe

And in the midnight quiet, outside the world away
We could have just one more night that you could stay.
And in the light of morning for 21 days straight
There you are beside me
And in the light of morning for 21 days straight
There you are beside me

[Repeat Chorus:]

So wontcha, So wontcha c'mon (3x)
(Very Suggestive "Ahs")
I can't breathe
(Band pauses, entire female population of the planet screams)
I want you, yeah I want you, so bad I can't breathe
I can't breathe.
