"Oxygen" as written by Robert John Lange, Bryan Adams and Eliot John Kennedy....
I came apart inside a world made of angry people
I found a boy who had a dream making everyone smile
He was sunshine; I fell over
My feet like bricks underwater

And how am I supposed to tell you how I feel?
I need oxygen

Oh baby, if I was your lady
I would make you happy
I'm never gonna leave, never gonna leave
Oh baby, I will be your lady
I am going crazy for you

And so I found a state of mind where I could be speechless
I had to try it for a while to figure out this feeling
This felt so right; pull me upside
Down to a place where you've been waiting

And how am I supposed to tell you how I feel?
I need oxygen

Oh baby, if I was your lady
I would make you happy
I'm never gonna leave, never gonna leave
Oh baby, I will be your lady
I am going crazy for you

And you don't wanna keep me waiting
Staring at my fingers feeling like a fool

Oh baby, I will be your lady
I will make you happy
I'm never gonna leave, never gonna leave
Oh baby, I will be your lady
I am going crazy, yeah, oh

Tell me what you want
Baby, tell me what you need
Anything I ask, baby, give it to me
Baby, give it to me, give it to me

I came apart inside a world made of angry people
I found a boy who had a dream making everyone smile

    General CommentI was trying to figure that part out, too.

    Is she saying, Ill take care of you ("tell me what you want, baby, tell me what you need"), and you take care of me ("anything I ask, baby, give it to me").

    Other than that, I'm out.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a girl who is in love with a guy.
    She likes him a lot, and she's not sure how to tell him (hince the "how am i suppose to tell you how i feel").
    She wants to be with him, and she's trying to tell him that'd they'd be good together. ("i will make you happy" thing)

    Just my opinion :D

    General Commentfor me, she meets this decent guy who is different from all the guys she's met or the people around her. she falls for him and, as it is somewhat a new experience to her, she doesn't really know how to cope with it at first. it's all overwhelming and so it takes her some time to figure out her feelings for him. she is trying to tell him now how they would be perfect together. how she could be the girl for him.

    General CommentI always thought the song was just about the feeling where you go all breathless and you heart starts pounding and you can't really control yourself because you like that person so much and because of that you can't bring yourself to tell this person your feelings. Just my thoughts.

    General CommentYeah I agree. To me its about liking someone who is just your friend and you don't know how to tell him how you feel.
