"Breathless" as written by and Dennis G White....
Up town another endless night
Hearts break in early morning light
(Yeah) I take my time

Downtown a lonesome boy at home
Don't know what's really going on
(Yeah) I take my time


But underneath it all I know it feels so right
I feel I'm going crazy but I won't cry tonight


Don't turn away
I need to say
You are the one that leaves me breathless
Don't run away
I wanna stay
As long as I can be with you
Now I know I never meant to break I promise
(Woah) I never meant to say goodbye
Don't turn away
I wanna stay
As long as I can be with you


If I could start it all again
I'd know you're more than just a friend
(Yeah) I turn back time


But underneath it all I know it feels so right
I feel I'm going crazy but I won't cry tonight


Don't turn away
I need to say
You are the one that leaves me breathless
Don't run away
I wanna stay
As long as I can be with you

    Song MeaningThis is about a girl who told a guy who was once, and still is, very important to her life, that she didn't want him in her life anymore. Either out of nowhere, or if he wanted to be back in her life after they broke up, got in a fight, etc.

    She probably said things she regretted, and didn't think about the consequences.
    When she finally realizes what she has done, she's hysterical. The boy can't believe it.

    The chorus, "Don't turn away, I need to say, you are the one who leaves me who leaves me breathless. Don't run away, I wanna stay, as long as I can be with you. I never meant to break a promise, I never meant to say goodbye. Don't turn away, I wanna stay, as long as I can be with you." is her telling the guy she needs and wants him back. She hopes he'll accept her apology.



    The only reason why I know this is EXACTLY the meaning.. is because this just happened to me. This is like the past twenty four hours of my life.
