Daryl Hall & John Oates – Room To Breathe lyrics

All you want is the shadow behind me

Don't you know that its nowhere to stand

What if I didn't call you tomorrow

Maybe youd fall apart after that

You keep it so tight l can't stand it

Theres no room for love when its ended

So give me room to breathe

The choice to stay or leave

I don't know what you need

So give me room to breathe

If you keep in your mind theres no future

Lt makes now so much lighter to bear

If you deal with it ever so loosely

You just might shake it, it might clear the air

You keep it so tight I can't stand it

Theres no room for love when its ended
