"Breathless" as written by and Dan Wilson....
I'm hunting shadows in the dark
In steaming jungles of the world
Either to kill or to be killed
By creatures never named or heard

I'm lifting wishes to the stars
The gleaming satellites of time
Orbiting circles overhead
To futures when your love is mine

But you were always pretty reckless with your love
Come with the sun and get it restless when it's gone
And when you go you'll leave me breathless and alone

You leave me breathless, when you close the door
It feels just like you took the air out of the room with you

Your voice is echoing again
Through catacombs inside my mind
And I've been dreaming of revenge
To make you love me more than even you can try

All words converge to where you are
And if I follow I would surely find
The horse is gone, the fire's still warm
And you've moved on an hour before
You like to keep me just one step behind

And you were always pretty reckless with your love
Come with the sun and get it restless when it's gone
And when you go you'll leave me breathless and alone

You leave me breathless, when you close the door
It feels just like you took the air out of the room with you
Breathless, breathless, breathless, breathless

Yeah, you were always pretty reckless with your love
Come with the sun and get it restless when it's gone
And when you go you'll leave me breathless and alone
You leave me breathless when you close the door
It feels just like you took the air out of the room with you

Restless when it's gone, breathless and alone
You leave me breathless, when you close the door
It feels just like you took the air out of the room with you
Breathless, breathless, breathless, breathless

    General Commenti think the song tells us a story about a hertbroken person who has broken just broken up. its the moment of the seperation with the one walking out of the room and the other staying behind crying and feeling really breathless.. i think it has a strong emotional meaning,,, absolutely a perfect song
