If I cried like a baby
Would you change your mind, yes?
If I told you I'm crazy
Would you come runnin' back to me?
The harder I try to break away, the more I get lost in yesterday
The man that you know is just a shell
Living without your life is hell

I turn on the radio just to take the hurt away
Another night and I'm missing you
Girl, this killing me, well

I don't wanna die tonight, but I think I might be goin' down
'Cause the only one I ever cared about is nowhere to be found
I don't wanna close my eyes 'cause I might not see the light of day
I'm almost out of air
You're my reason for breathin', you're my reason for breathin'
Oh no no no, no no no no

I don't wanna go clubbin', 'cause I got no one to dance with me
And I don't wanna go shoppin',
'cause I got no one to spend my money on
Spendin' my time with one glass of wine
Playin' solitaire just to ease my mind
Poured one for you, but I drank that too
Anything to kill the pain of losin' you, oh baby

I turn on the radio just to take the hurt away
Another night and I'm missing you
Girl, this killing me, oh baby

I don't wanna die tonight, but I think I might be goin' down
'Cause the only one I ever cared about is nowhere to be found
I don't wanna close my eyes 'cause I might not see the light of day
I'm almost out of air
You're my reason for breathin', you're my reason for breathin'
No no no no oh, no no no oh oh oh oh
No no no no oh, no no no no

So I'm reachin' out on this distant line
Hopin' deep inside, your heart's gonna find a reason
To keep me breathin'
But I'm lost in this pain and I don't have much time
I'm so tired of walkin' this same old line
So I'm takin' my pride, gonna throw it aside
Please let me breathe girl, I'm sorry

I don't wanna die tonight, but I think I might be goin' down
'Cause the only one I ever cared about is nowhere to be found
I don't wanna close my eyes 'cause I might not see the light of day
I'm almost out of air
You're my reason for breathin', you're my reason for breathin'

I don't wanna die tonight, but I think I might be goin' down
'Cause the only one I ever cared about is nowhere to be found
I don't wanna close my eyes 'cause I might not see the light of day
I'm almost out of air
You're my reason for breathin', you're my reason for breathin'

No no no no oh, no no no no oh oh
No no no no oh, no no no no
No no no no oh, no no no no oh oh oh oh
No no no no oh, no no no no
