Jordin Sparks – No Air lyrics

(Feat. 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)
I'm here alone, didn't wanna leave
My heart won't move, it's incomplete
Wish there was a way that I can 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 gon' be without me
If you ain't here, I just can't breathe
There's no air, no air

No air, air
No air, air
No air, air
No air, air

(Chris)
I walked, I ran, I jumped, I flew
Right off the ground to float 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

(Both)
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 gon' be without me
If you ain't here, I just can't breathe
There's no air, no air

No air, air
No air, air
No air, air
No air, air

No more
No air
There's no air, no air

Ooohhhh...

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

(Jordin)
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 gon' be without me
If you ain't here, I just can't breathe
There's no air, no air

No air, air
No air, air
No air, air

No air

    Ever since I heard this song I really felt its meaning already, If you really love someone its like you can't breathe without him by your side. I dedicate this song to someone special to me, He was my long time crush when we were in high school. He became my boyfriend when we were in College but we broke up because of a very personal reason. After 10yrs we are together again but its really complicated, its a wrong relationship, we both have our responsibilities. But I love him. I think First love never really dies.

    It is basically saying that ur significant other(if you will) is like your lungs (i guess) and if she (or he for the ladies and "others") walks out of your life you have trouble breathing(i hope I'm right) and that your like dying(on the inside) and most of you know(i hope) that you can hardly live with one heart(i think I got it)(ps paranthesis own: P) so it basically says that when your other leaves you its like the take the air away from you(like taking away the lungs) and (for sissies) you feell like your dying(woot I did it woot can I have a party: P).

    This song is much of an expression of unconditional love between two individuals. The male vocalist is forced to leave and as he does he misses the partner of his. How he wishes to explain and make her understand his situation. The female vocalist sing her feeling of how hard life is with his as expressed by "losing you's like living in a world with no air". It's another wonderful song by griggs!

    I've been hearing this song a lot but I do realize when you love someone its like air bcoz we need it but we can't see, we can't live to this world without air like our love ones. Soo I never leave my love ones bcoz I won't living to this world without him trying hard to be his friend, best friend, girlfriend and wife in the future but that's to long enough to be fulfilled that wish. I think its better to know him better and he will know me better before we start a relationship. :)

    When I listen to the words and watch the film clip, both the clip and the lyrics say to me that her partner has passed away, she's now learning how to live without him, how to breathe without him because he was her life, her air, her meaning to live.
    In the film clip its him always asking her how she is going to live without him. I think its quite a sad song, but also quite beautiful.

    This song resonate with the way am feeling right, is as if the words are directly talking to me. The worst of all is that she and the person I love so much are cardboard copy. I just don't understand why this is so.
    I love this song so much, I truly love it with all my heart and soul.
    May you always have more inspiration and wisdom to write even better, and may you be filled with pure light, love and happiness in all your endeavors.

    The meaning is If you miss someone special when they arent there, you have no air. It reminds me of my boyfriend Austin Myers because when he is not there right by my side, I have no air, I can't breathe. So Austin If you ever see this. I love you so much:-)! I don't want anything to happen between me and you because you are my everything. I love you from the bottom of my heart and I will never do anything to hurt you in any kind of way because you mean so much to me. Day or night. Sleeping or awake. Never means I never stop thinking about you because I don't, and that's the truth.

    This song represents everything I'm feeling and going through right now. I've spent the last 6 months of my life with a man whos temper, anger, and fists coupled with our addictions made our relationship absolutely toxic. He was arrested last saturday (8/2/08) on our 6 month anniversary and I haven't been able to talk to him since then do the seriousness of the dv charges. I am still very much in love with him and while I don't want him to get off scott free I don't want to be the one who sends him to prison. The first time we will get to see each other is this friday the 15th in the courtroom and were gonna be sitting on opposite sides. I'm the victim hes the defendent. I think he needs counseling and I would love to see him get the help he needs. And yes I'm still praying for the fairytale ending. Right now though I wouldnt be able to move without the this song.

    I do truly love this song, it hits me everytime I listen to it I just stop and listen to it because its beautiful.
    I don't know whether they are singing about someone who died but I think since it has both of them in the filmclip and at one point they are touching I think its about love and loss. When two people loose each other and it literally is killing them to live with out each other it feels like they have no air. I know what this is like but it would be cliche if I talked about it.
    And I don't think they should get together, it seems that chris is in love with rihanna (although it hasn't even been confirmed that they are together) but if maybe people should listen to their umbrella remix? And if chris and rihanna are in love they should work as hard as they possibly can to keep it the same with anyone else who is reading this. Sorry if this sounds like I'm preaching! Lol peace out xx.
