The memories of us won't pass,
I try to let them go,
Was our love too good to last?
Will we ever know?

I can see,
Now you're gone,
I can't seem to move on,
I know why,
You're the one,
'Cause you're my oxygen.

I wish I never left you behind,
If only I could just push rewind.

Now that you're over me,
Now that you're over me yeah,
You are not my want, you're my need,
You are all the reasons I breathe,
Now that you're over me,
Now that you're over me yeah,
Why was I blind to see?

When you feel over the edge,
I should have broke your fall,
Have you heard a word I said?
Are you listening at all?

I can see,
Now you're gone,
I can't seem to move on,
I know why,
You're the one,
'Cause you're my oxygen.

I wish I never left you behind,
If only I could just push rewind.

Now that you're over me,
Now that you're over me yeah,
You are not my want, you're my need,
You are all the reasons I breathe,
Now that you're over me,
Now that you're over me

I won't feel the same,
I'm stuck inside the shame,
And I know I'm to blame,
That you don't feel the same,
I won't feel the same.

I wish I never left you behind,
If only I could just push rewind.
Now that you're over me,
Now that you're over me yeah,
You are not my want, you're my need,
You are all the reasons I breathe,
Now that you're over me,
Now that you're over me.
I know why you're the one,
Now that you're over me,
'Cause you're my
Oxygen,
Now that you're over me,

And I won't feel the same.

    General Commentoh wow. this song is so incredible. at surface value it's about regretting a breakup. and maybe there's nothing much deeper. but it's such a sad, regretful song. i can relate about 1000%.
