"Breathless" as written by and Vena/cloyd/radovanovic/zwiefelhofer/mcalhaney....
Watch it go, watch it go, watch it go
She'll have to cut it away to save her life
And she knows, See she knows
It's like a fatal disease
You'll hear her cry, Oh
Take this
Make it something beautiful again
Make this
Make this heaven cause you're beautiful to them

Got you anyway
I'm gonna say that I've been taken over
Come on lets go again
You tell me when
And I'll be taking over

And you know that I'll never (I will do it again)
Do it again (I'll take it away from you)
And I'll tell you I love you (I'll take it again)
(Just give me the chance, I'll take it again)
(I'll take it away from you)
Say it again

Got you anyway
I'm gonna say that I've been taken over
Come on lets go again
You tell me when
And I'll be taking over

And time stands still
It's at a picture
(I think of every word you say)
And time moves on to the next one
(I think of every word you said)
With every word you said

Got you anyway
I'm gonna say that I've been taken over
Come on lets go again
You tell me when
And I'll be taking over

    General Commentnotice people, i hate to sound bitchy, but it's songMEANINGS.net. i9 don't want to waste scrollingdown to see your empty comments on the song. got it?

    I don't completely understand this song yet, i'll have to listen to it more, but, to my current understanding it's about a girl, obviously.

    She has to cut it away may mean cutting, literally, or isolating herself and forcing things that hurt her or her problems away from her, as if bottling up her emitions and faking it for everyone around her.

    And by the speaker saying "i'll be taking over", maybe as in taking advantage of her, or saying that he will take away her pain, or both. Promising her that he'll be there for her and cares about what she says. hmm i dunno i feel like i might be missing the true meaning, i'll comment back once i hear some more opinions on the MEANING.

    General CommentHey Donielle. I suggest you shut the hell up. People can put whatever they want.

    As for me. I think it's about the harms maniplative realationships can induce on someone.

    And it is. Fuckin' sexy.

    General CommentPersonally, I think the song is about sex, and taking the girls' virginity, then wanting to do it again. The title also being, "Breathless" puts that idea into mind.

    "Watch it go, watch it go, watch it go"
    Means she is losing her virginity.

    "And she knows, see she knows
    It's like a fatal disease, you'll hear her cry ohh"
    Means she knows that afterward, she is going to want to have sex again.
    And you'll hear her cry, meaning an orgasm.

    "Got you anyway
    I'm gonna say that I've been takin over
    Come, let's go again
    Tell me when
    And I'll be taking over"
    He is saying he has her by taking her virginity and he's experienced and "taking over."
    Then saying he'll do again, and she has to tell him when.

    Not trying to sounds like all that is on my mind is sex either, haha. It just seemed logical to me, that's all.

    General CommentI dunno, I think this song is about the guy going into the relationship thinking it will all be about the physical aspects and that he really doesn't care about her. I think the contradictions in the chorus emphasize this; he tells her one thing, but the truth is that he'll do the opposite. He feels like he has all control in the relationship. He's "been taking over". Voila!
    Wait for it, here it comes...
    And then he realizes that he's over his head, and that he's fallen for this girl. He finds himself immersed in every detail about her, every thing she says.
    "And time stands still
    It's like a picture
    (I think of every word you say)
    And time moves on to the next one
    I think of every word you said"

    Anyways, that's my take on it.
    In any case, it's a really mezmerizing song, eh?
