"Can't Breathe" as written by Thomas Salter, Fefe Dobson, Tommy Henriksen and Bob Ezrin....
It's been thirty seven days
Since you turned and walked away
Baby you were foolish
You were wrong
You should've made it better
You broke the promise you made
'Cause you were jealous and afraid
Baby I was rising
You let me down
We should've stood together
Now I can't breathe if I'm not breathing with you
I can't sleep if all I'm dreaming is you
Can't you see I've got no air without you
I can't breathe I can' breathe

So I cracked and called you today
And the tears froze on my face
'Cause you said we were over
You were so cold
We should've been forever
Now I can't breathe if I'm not breathing with you
I can't sleep if all I'm dreaming is you
Can't you see I've got no air without you
I can't breathe I can't breathe

We could have everything
But all we got is heartache and pain
I can't catch my breath
It's getting harder to speak
You should be proud of me
But you're too insecure and too vain
We should've been forever
I wanted you forever
Now I can't breathe if I'm not breathing with you
I can't sleep if all I'm dreaming is you
Can't you see I've got no air without you
I can't breathe I can't breathe
