"I Want You So Bad I Can't Breathe" as written by and Timothy Nordwind Damian Kulash....
In your fitted raincoat and tangled winter hair
Cheeks a little rosy in the February air
And running through the subway to catch the uptown train
Spend the night just dancing
And running through the subway to catch the uptown train
Spend the night just dancing

I want you, yeah I want you
I want you, yeah I want you bad
So bad I can't think straight
So bad all my bones shake
So bad I can't breathe

And in the midnight quiet, outside the world away
We could have just one more night that you could stay
And in the light of morning for 21 days straight
There you are beside me
And in the light of morning for 21 days straight
There you are beside me

I want you, yeah I want you
I want you, yeah I want you bad
So bad I can't think straight
So bad all my bones shake
So bad I can't breathe

So won'tcha? Oh, wantcha say it?
So won'tcha? Oh, wantcha give in?
So won'tcha? Oh, wantcha come on?

I can't breathe
Cause I want you Yeah, I want you
I want you Yeah, I want you bad

So bad I can't think straight
So bad all my bones shake
So bad I can't breathe

I want you, yeah I want you
So bad I can't breathe

I want you, yeah I want you
So bad I can't breathe

I want you, I want you
I want you, yeah
So bad I can't breathe
So bad I can't breathe
I can't breathe

    General Commenthaha this song reminds me of a mood lighting, wine and the inevitable sex that it leads to. THIS is how you get a girl into bed.

    General Comment@Salmonnerdz, you're wrong. Sorry to be pedantic, but this was written during a time when Damian and his wife were splitting up gradually, so it's a woman. I don't know whether it was the burning-out hot point at the end of the relationship or for another woman, but I think it is the former. This is because the reason she split up with Damian was because they didn't see each other enough due to touring et cetera.
    Well, anyway. Great song! Very atmospheric.
    I have one little thing to add to this; some of you will probably think I'm reading too far into it, but '21 days' maybe could correlate to the menstrual cycle?
    Just my interpretation.

    General CommentSounds like he's whacking off toward the end there when he starts saying he wants her so bad he can't breathe, that breathing is very jerky.
